I applied the OTA image. Lost root. Then I tried fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img. Couldnt boot. Guess I cant update and keep root after all. I have to do factory reset every time i update. And that sucks.
command, because this seems to be how I destroyed the Realme 6. On Windows this command gives me "unknown argument --d" and on Linux I got the "unrecognized option -d" (from memory, so it might have been the other way around). Is there a specific version of fastboot which works? I tried straight flashing vbmeta which worked, but now the device got into an irrecoverable bootloop so it's essentially e-waste which pains me to no end.
-OTA flash directly when ROOT its safe (but will lose root) Use THIS GUIDE AND FILES at your own risk, im not responsable for any kind of damage. NEW WAY to re-root (or root) --->CUSTOM ROM NEEDED 1. Bootloader unlocked 2.- FLASH ANY CUSTOM...
After unblock bootloader --> Try these method to get root with Magisk
1. Need to have vbmeta & boot img in ozip package: download from realme official site
2. Using Magisk to patch boot.img >> patched_boot.img
2. Boot into bootloader
3. fastboot flash --disable-verification vbmeta vbmeta.img
4. fastboot flash boot patched_boot.img
5. fastboot reboot

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
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
(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.
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.
