Any tutorials out there or here that instructs on unlocking the bootloader for this phone? Again, I am looking for the international version's tut, not the CN version.

I might have misread the comments, but why in here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/root-realme-gt-gt-neo-easily-tested-on-chinese-variant.4290569/, they say only tested in CN version? I don't want to risk buying a phone only to find out it is non-rootable, or testing something not officially being mentioned in https://c.realme.com/in/post-details/1248075024070344704 that might hard brick my device. Also, I read that keeping the bootloader unlocked will disallow fingerprint scanning from working, as I was intended to keep my bootloader unlocked forever, because I don't to contact Realme servers everytime I want to confirm my submission in the Deep Testing app (I don't want to rely on having Realme support my device in their servers, as one day they might pull the plug out, and I can no longer get Realme to verify my device using this app).

I contacted the Realme EU support and they said that Realme has no plans on providing unlock codes for EU models. They apparently only offered this for a few models on Indian market, so I'm not sure if it applies internationally, although imo, it sounds like it. What a shame.

What a shame. Such a good cheap phone is out of my options now 😢. I guess I have to bite it and buy OnePlus 9 now (OnePlus no longer a flagship killer 😢).

I think the same thing happens with the Realme 7 pro. You had to change the dialer to change to India. So if I could unlock it .. It would be nice if it could be done with the European realme gt

If someone could find how to change the region in the realme GT from engineer mode, I think it would be the solution to be able to unlock.
Here are some codes that I found in case they could be usable

I have not found any solution. They also told me in the telegram group that for our European version there will be no possibility of unlocking. I will sell it
I wondered if it was a problem with the Google dialer not accepting the codes. Did you try a different dialer esp the realme or oppo dialer?

People also say the fact that it's coming to India should be good news for bootloader unlocking.

Has anybody been able to unlock the bootloader on the global variant? I have to pick between the Realme GT and the Poco F3 and would prefer the first because of the headphone jack, but if it's not possible to unlock the bootloader the phone would be almost useless to me.
What about previous Realme phones, is it possible to unlock the bootloader for all of them or are there some models where this is not possible? If the company has a good track record then we could assume that some day it will be possible to unlock the bootloader of the GT too.
I keep reading about some deep testing app or in-depth test app needed to unlock the bootloader, does anybody know where it comes from and who the developer is? All I could find was downloads on random websites and the whole thing seems sketchy.

    Good news everyone! I've been following a Realme GT telegram group and someone said they unlocked their GT 5G bootloader.

    I just tried it myself and it works! It seems the deep testing app is now working with EU versions. It granted my application after a few minutes and I could then reboot into the bootloader, allowing me to fastboot flashing unlock. I don't have time to magisk/root just yet but I assume it's the same procedure as the chinese version. Please update with your own experiences.

    I'm so happy. Finally, we can get the development train rolling. Choo-choo!

    Not buying this phone given the sad state of unlocking and sources.

    I'm just here to check how this phone is doing in development and seems like it's doing terrible.
