I tryied to patch the boot .img. I extracted from the firmware. It seems that that file is not recognised.
I am still looking to solve this.
Thanks!
Hey!! the real problem lies in flashing the patched_boot.img
You need to know that u can't flash anything unless your bootloader is unlocked
Sadly in realme and oppo devices unlocking bootloader isn't possible without the in-depth test app. This is provided my the manufacturer itself along with the kernel sources. Realme releases the kernel sources of each device after warranty period ,but oppo doesn't . Oppo has recently released the sources of a few devices ( best selling )
So the conclusion is u can't root unless oppo releases the in depth test tool.

And don't extract the boot from ozip with zip archiving tool
Use this

Got it, thanks all for help.

Then I will avoid OPPO in the future and I will not recommend it.
Low price, but the phone not totally mine. I bought it as secondary phone, in order to do tests for apps developed by me. So is useless for me in this case. Waste of time and money in my particularly case.

Also, my fault because I didn't he search really well before. I hope it is only my case. It depends what user needs are.

All the best,

update:
I emailed oppo few days ago. they didnt reply about the bootloader but aparently they made the kernel source public. (link below)
but I think it's kinda useless since we still need unlocked bootloader to do any mods on this phone
(unless a signed programmer is available, there might still be hope if there is)

Sorry, but unlocking the bootloader is possible, there is an official program called in-depth test, using it and adb package, you can open the bootloader. The problem is that twrp does not support oppo a53.

    Thanks!
    Did you got the boot by doing a readback/dump or by extracting it from ozip file?
