Hello Everyone,

I have been using Oneplus phones from a long time and I found it pretty straight forward to just do "fastboot oem unlock" and you are good to go.

Now from what I understand, in case of realme, you have to sideload an realme provided apk and request for In-Depth test which if approved, you'll be allowed unlock your bootloader. I think they (realme) are pushing our serial number and carrier info to their servers to see if you should be allowed to unlock bootloader.

I do not plan to unlock my bootloader right now but I am concerned if realme's servers went down in future or if they stopped providing support for our device in coming year, how would I unlock my device ?

Can I initiate In-Depth test now and actually unlock bootloader later ?

fears kill dreams!
who knows what happend to realme or oppo in future or their servers!
X2PRO is 4g device, maximum we may use for next 24-36 months before going to 5g or different device!
i immediately unlock the bootloader, (got approval in 5 mins)
yes you can relock but i don't plan to, (but thats me)

moreover same goes xiaomi, sony also! (the server thing) they monitor what devices are getting unlocked!

Thanks for your replies guys. I understand that I should unlock while I can.

Point is I don't want to do it right now because I am somewhat satisfied with what RUI has to offer. Plus I don't want that safety net headache right now.
I want the option to unlock later lets say when Realme X2 Pro's update support ends and I want to flash Android 12 (when it comes)
My question is, if I get approval and not unlock it, will this approval be retained even after updates and system wipes ? So that I can unlock it later without approval

You can just unlock the bootloader and keep everything stock unrooted. That's what I first did back when I got the phone. There's no harm, other than losing widevine L1, I think.

Got it, thanks.
My original question remains unanswered though.

I'm decompiling realme's in-depth apk to understand what it does when you are approved for bootloader unlock. Will update here if I find anything interesting
