Hello everyone !
I am French and my English is very bad so I will use Google translation to communicate with you!
This is what is happening.
Without doing it on purpose, I flashed the original boot with the unofficial TWRP one!
Since then, I can no longer use my phone and I no longer enter the RUI3 interface.
I used Realmeflash.exe to reinstall the firmware and it gives me an error message "cannot find central directory".

Do you know how to solve this problem?
Thank you for your help !

I had the same problem you gotta get the MCT OFP extractor tool and QFIL, you extract everything with the MCT tool and then use QFIL to flash but the super.img is broken up into multiple files which I Have no clue how to merge so I'm stuck for now but if I get it working I'll be sure to tell you

use this flash tool. put the ofp file in same folder run exe & select region start flash https://github.com/italorecife/OppoRealme-OFP-Flash
I already tried !
According to Google the .exe is infected with a virus, but I used it anyway, because I know it can be a false positive.

During use, the flash does a lot of "Success" but also "Failed", because of data protection on certain files!
Arrived at "service.img", the flash stops and nothing advances!

I recently unbricked my GT ME using this flash tool only. Realme flash tool doesn't support AB partition & dynamic partition table. It is the only working tool to flash through fastboot. After flashing completion change slot

fastboot getvar current-slot

fastboot --set-active=a or b

fastboot reboot

I choose slot A to do the flashing and then I have to activate slot B ?

Yup after flashing success
Hi, I got my phone back from this scam repairman!
He damaged my phone even more than I left him!
Could you send me a screenshot of your c:\adb\dir please!
I no longer have recovery mode and the repairman told me a lot of things that I supposedly did during the flashing to get rid of his bullshit!!
Thank you.

When I launch the program for slot A, it's very random when it blocks !
On the image, it's xb1_config_a which bug !
And when I close the window, it gives me success before it disappears !

In general, I have 50% success and 50% failed !

The furthest file that gave me the bug is the "super" file !
Apparently it is cut into 5 parts with the OFP extractor.

Every partition flashes in both slots except super partition. Super partition only flashes in inactive slot, that's why u need to change the slot. Super partition flashing takes around 25 to 30 minutes you need to be patient. & After flashing check slot and change it

Problem solved...everything works! !
I'm in the interface and everything seems fine at the moment.

The flashing problem was what you said for the "super" file, but the main problem was above all the fact that I wasn't using a USB port on the motherboard !

Were you able to root the phone ?

It's very easy !

1. You download the latest firmware
2. You put your phone in fastboot mode
3. You connect your phone with the original cable to an available port on your motherboard
4. You open the "OppoRealme-OFP-Flash_1.0.exe"
5. You choose the "most logical" options

The files will install one by one and you may get a lot of errors!

Leave it, the program will continue and at some point there will be a "super" file which will take a long time to install (30 minutes), you wait and then you will see your phone restart as if it were brand new ! 😊

Finally, after two weeks of trouble, the problem was solved, thank you very much
