Hello, I have a Realme c11 2021, Running android 11. Though I can't unlock the bootloader, I have tried many "solutions", and they didn't work at all.... I just want to `fastboot boot boot.img` ,
But it gives me a error (FAILED, TOO MANY LINKS). No matter what I try, so do I need unlocked bootloder to use fastboot boot?

To operate on phone's bootloader it must be unlocked.

1. On PC install the Android USB Drivers provided by OEM suitable to phone & reboot
2. On phone enable OEM Unlock & reboot phone
3. Connect phone with PC via USB-cable that came with phone
4 On PC run this command sequence
Code:
adb devices
adb reboot fastboot
fastboot reboot fastboot
fastboot flashing unlock

Just a problem, the oem unlocking option in grayed out.
