Can anyone please share a solution to replace my c21's stock recovery with a custom one?

Actually, I hate bloatware, and I want to root my C21 to get rid of them all!

It's a clickbait article.

Infact we cant even boot into fastboot mode without unlocking bootloader, and there is no "depth test" app for realme C21
You can boot into fastboot mode of C21 by executing this command through PC or a laptop.

1)Download Adb and fastboot drivers. (Skip if done)
2)Go to your device and enable usb debugging.

Then do this-
  1. Connect your phone to your computer using a USB cable.
  2. Open CMD/Powershell on your computer.
  3. Run the following command to make sure the computer recognizes your Realme C21:adb devices
  4. Now you have two choices again:
    • If you want to boot your Realme C21 into Fastboot Mode, use the following command: adb reboot bootloader

    • If you want to boot your Realme C21 into Recovery Mode, use the following command: adb reboot recovery

Once you run the following commands, your Realme C21 will turn off and go into Fastboot/Recovery Mode. That is all you have to do. Now you can flash factory images, custom ROMs, unlock the bootloader, and much more.

You cant boot into fastboot mode with adb shell without unlocking bootloader with deepth test app.

I don't know what you are striving for.

If I hadn't tried it, I wouldn't have said it wouldn't happen like this.

Finally, my device's bootloader is already unlocked by me and I've been using it as rooted for a month already.
How did you root it than?
What recovery did you used?
What bootloader?

Unplug USB cable, hold all 3 keys at the same time

While holding keys, plug usb cable when your device screen off.

Keep holding keys untill mtkclient detect your device.

Tip: Use a linux distro if mtkclient cant detect your device on windows.


Edit: Unfortunately, Realme C21Y not has same SOC as C21,

It has a Unisoc processor, mtkclient works with mediatek chipsets only.
