/* Your warranty is now void (or isn't ? who am I to judge ?) */

Finally, we got a shiny DeepTesting.apk that compatible with Realme 6 Pro.
Thanks to @barakcodam for leaking it, and @Rizezky for providing a Google Drive mirror of it.

  • This tutorial requires adb and fastboot installed on your computer. So, you should prepare it first. How to install them ? google it according to your os (Windows/Linux/BSD/Mac).
  • Unlocking bootloader will wipe your data, backup it first.
  • Due to Android 10 Dynamic Partition, there's no fully-working TWRP available yet. So the only way to root your phone is patching boot.img through Magisk Manager. You can grab boot.img from Flashable Stock ROM .ozip

Unlocking Bootloader

  • download the deeptesting.apk for Realme 6 Pro : https://drive.google.com/file/d/16az-7SHoPyJhDIi4p4x7wj1cRUcsPwCM/view
  • open it and apply for in-depth test
  • Go to Developer options, enable OEM unlock and USB debugging
  • open In-depth test again and tap "Query verification status" on the top corner
  • tap "Start the in-depth test", and you'll will reboot to bootloader
  • on your computer, open cmd/terminal, and type :
    Code:
    fastboot flashing unlock
  • on your phone, select "yes". now your phone will reboot and data is being wiped, and you have unlocked bootloader.

Disabling Verified Boot

In order to boot a custom boot-partition (for magisk or custom kernel purposes) or custom recovery, you have to disable verified boot, otherwise you can't boot to the OS.

  • download vbmeta.img in the attachment
  • on your computer, open cmd/terminal, and type :
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
  • after entering fastboot, type :
    Code:
    fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
  • Now you can flash your custom boot.img and it'll boot just fine.

Stock boot image is around 65 mb in size. But patched_boot.img with magisk is only 13.2 mb in size. So will it cause any damage when flashing patched boot image?

No, that 65mb is size of the whole partition block, not the actual size of the whole files inside of it.
If you try to manually unpack the boot.img, and then repack it, the size will go down to around that.

Thank you so much but i am afraid to flash it again as it was really hard to revive it back i had to send it to Service center, and pretended that the newest update has done all issues.
They were not agreeing to flash as bootloader was unlocked then after so many request they agreed and said do not update the fone to lastest update.

Boot loader is unlocked so tell me how can i do the root session STEP BY STEP please
and also if you have the MBN version of the stock rom then give me the link as MSMDOWNLOADTOOL does not work without Paid ID and Password.

    Once you get into bootloader following OP, verify "fastboot devices" command is working. If not, your device isn't recognized in fastboot. Open device manager and check.

    Unlock Bootloader Tutorial for realme 6 Pro (Android 10) from realme official forum

    Steps to install magisk after unlocking bootloader and without installing twrp.
    Backup and factory data reset first.
    1. Grab .ozip (3.4G) from realme.com you should update to downloaded .ozip first. (copy .ozip file to your phone's external sd card, if something terrible happens, this might be useful.)
    2. Extract boot.img from .ozip, copy to your phone.
    3. Install magisk manager.
    4. Open magisk manager.
    5. Click install Magisk.
    6. Choose " Select and patch a file"
    7. Select copied boot.img.
    8. Copy patched boot.img to pc.
    9. Rename patched boot image to boot.img
    10. Flash patched boot.img


    fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img (this will probably bootloop, if you dare you can skip this and try to reboot after flashing patched boot.img)

    As for me bootloop occured and I tried the below steps.

    If you get bootloop after flashing patched vbmeta.img, flash original vbmeta.img extracted from
    downloaded .ozip
    (It will be trickier to get into fastboot in bootloop, hold down volume down, once you enter fastboot quickly execute command before sudden reboot)

    After successful boot, open magisk you will see magisk installed.
