Please help when i connect my realme 8 with holding vol +& - key together to my pc.
It continuously connect and disconnect again and again.
After leaving the key my phone automatically switched on.
I can't even charge my phone in switch off state because when i connect it to pc or charger it is power on automatically.

Sorry for bad english

    Hello guys!
    As you all know that there is no deeptest.apk available for our device.
    So we have to unlock our bootloader unofficially!

    NOTE: IF U HAVEN'T UPGRADED AFTER A19 ROM THEN SKIP FIRST PART !!! And follow the instructions from 2nd part.

    Also this method only works on RUI 2.0
    DON'T TRY THIS IN RUI 3.0

    /*
    * This Guide is tested and working.
    * However I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
    * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed.
    * Please do some research if you have any concerns about unlocking and flashing TWRP
    * Before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications.
    */

    So Lets Begin the Process:

    1. Flashing A19 Partitions:

    Requirements:
    • PC or Laptop
    • Internet connection
    • Realme 8
    • USB cable
    • Take a backup of your data, Just in case if any error happens.
    Windows Method
    Requirements:
    Bypass Tools Pack - (DRIVER AND BYPASS FILES)
    SP Flash Tool

    Decrypted OFP (OPPO FIRMWARE PACKAGE) Partitions:
    Partitions.zip

    Install Python from Windows Store
    libusb-win32 - Having Issues? Use this.
    Get usbdk installer (.msi) from here and install it

    Steps:

    1) Extract the zip
    2) Go to driver folder, find the .inf file right click and press install.

    3)Download this file and install it, after installing power off phone and connect to pc while holding Vol+- (don't leave the buttons after connecting) . You might need this driver as well if it's not detected.

    Press next, connect your device to PC while holding Vol+- buttons (your device needs to be powered off, and don't leave the buttons) and you will see the mtkdriver down below. Install it.

    8)Now in Sp flash tool select the scatter file which you have extracted from Partitions.zip and make sure that prealoder, lk, and lk2 is selected.

    9) You don't need to select auth file as authorization is disabled. Once you do it, it should look like this. ALWAYS MAKE SURE DOWNLOAD ONLY MODE IS SELECTED! DON'T SELECT OTHER MODES!

    Make SURE "Download Only" is selected. Don't select ANYTHING ELSE! You will lose your IMEIs, Serial Numbers, Capability of Hardware Attestation etc. if you choose "Format data + Download" make SURE you selected "Download Only".

    10) Now, you can start downloading with the button and after that a checkmark will appear. You can reboot your phone
    After flashing it should look like this. Download has been complete.

    2. UNLOCKING BOOTLOADER:

    Requirements
    • PC or Laptop
    • Internet connection
    • USB cable
    • Take a backup of your data since it'll be wiped
    • Go to About phone > Version and tap build number 7 times
    • Go to Settings > advanced settings > Developer options and turn on OEM unlocking and USB debugging
    Steps:
    • Install USBDk
    • Download this and extract : https://github.com/bkerler/mtkclient/archive/refs/heads/main.zip
    • Now open command prompt in that folder
    • Screenshot (50).png
    • Now type pip3 install -r requirements.txt and hit enter
    • Now type python mtk e metadata,userdata,md_udc hit enter - This command wipes data
    • Then power off your phone and hold both volume buttons and connect usb cable (DON'T LEAVE THE BUTTONS, KEEP THEM HOLDING THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS) - This boots device into BROM mode
    • Now type python mtk da seccfg unlock This will unlock the bootloader (If you face waiting for device issue then unplug the device and plug in the device again with holding volume buttons, also don't leave the buttons)
    • IMG_20211201_212023_350.jpg
    • After this unplug your phone and turn it on (It'll show your device dm verity corrupted and first boot might take 5-10 mins, don't panic)
    • Now your bootloader is unlocked

    • Due to realme's limitations you still can't access fastboot after unlocking via this method
