I've been waiting since its release to be able to root it, there are some tutorials online but they look sketchy and I dont trust them.
The only one I would trust is made by the magisk team but it has a link that says "cooming soon" when you try to download the Realme 8 Pro stock rom, which is also not present on the official realme website.
This is what made me skeptic: how can the youtube indian guy have the stock rom meanwhile neither the official website and magisk have it? is it worth to give it a try or if I mess up I wont be able to restore my phone? has anyone tried to do so? which tutorial should i use?

At this time there is no solution to root realme 8 pro, in-depth test app is not working with this device so far, firmware is not avaleble to download (from a credible source). We just have to wait, i don't know for how long, i just hope devs will find a solution in a shot time.

First the bootloader "can" be unlocked and this is the primarly thing to do.
Secondary rom images allready exists.

Zip and opf's can be extracted .... So boot (kernel and ramdisk) can be modified to work with modified Magisk and all other needed things (Bootloader unlock, FRP, vbMETA, Verity ...) to gain root.

Regarding recovery and flash via current recovery the things are not known yet, also custom recovery options.

Update: Will be very hard to participate for this device ...

There are available stock roms, update OTA's but to be able to flash,root ... first the unlock bootloader should be available. Since the HAL is missing from the fastboot and the bootloader is still locked the only thing is to flash is original stock ROM.

Secondary AVB check, meta, recovery, boot, FRP and other things should be done also.
Currently the MSM flash is only available for signed and official files, also MD5 checked flash files.

There is no working piece of tutorial to obtain any of it. Some partially and also magisk patched boot allready done by me, but cannot flash it to test and prepare other needed steps.

Recovery is original, there is no log or cache log currently available to check.
