the guide in it's current form doesn't work on RMX2030

@iamlordutkarsh. With all due respect the posted guide doesn't yield a positive result. The #4 item - Then Reboot To Recovery - boot the phone into fastboot again, after entering the command "fastboot reboot recovery". Any information on how to actually make it work would be really appreciated. I spent >6 hours trying everything I know and reading all the info I could find on XDA or Realme Telegram channel and now believe RMX2030 is not rootable at this point in time.

Fine but,

do u have vbmeta.img for device if yes kindly share link here
Before providing, I need to know "what vendor you're using?". If you're using Color os, flashing vbmeta is pretty simple. But, if you're in RUI vendor, scene is different. You've to do additional things even after flashing the vbmeta. If not it'll lead you to "Boot.img damaged!" One of the worst OS I've ever seen oof!

I'm strongly recommend you to use TWRP if you're in RUI vendor since Orange Fox facing some errors when flashing. And also for RUI it wasn't official if I'm right.

And one more thing Orange Fox is Official now for RMX2030, Color OS.

Yeah, I can't even get this to work on ColorOS. I did "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img" (I renamed the Orangefox file to make it easier) and if I select reboot to recovery on the phone it just boots back to fastboot mode and if I do fastboot reboot it just reboots normally.

Good Luck

I'm using Colour OS and would like the vbmeta please.
Sorry, I've been busy with personal things. And good luck!

Okay Before that... Make sure You're
• Unlocked your Bootloader (Necessary).
• Having the proper OrFox, TWRP or SHRP recovery for RMX2030 (Android Pie).
• Having the Pie vbmeta for RMX2030. (See Attachment)
• For additionally you need R5i Decrypt ZIP. (Optional)*
• Having ADB with Platform-tools & ADB driver installed on your PC.
• And I assume you know/read the proper command for flashing the recovery, vbmeta.

ATTACHMENTS: (Google Drive)
Vbmeta | 4KB
5i Decryption | 503KB

*Notes:
> Right after installing the Custom Recovery flash the Decryption zip if you wish.
> In case (it happens rare cases) If you're facing any problems like booting again and again into custom recovery that's because it may need Format Data. So, Format Data through the custom recovery can fix it permanently.

And one more thing I've not tested this OrFox myself. I hope I've been used other release of OrFox. Hope this one works perfectly. If not let me know, I'll maybe share what I've used.

Is this 100% working for Realme 5i RMX2030?
Running on latest Realme UI at the moment.
I want to switch roms or at least root because free ram barely hits 1GB free -_-
Oh yes! When I was using colorOS I've been used OranageFox and TWRP as my recovery. Flashing ozip sometimes cause error. But, it's not a problem at all. You can fix it.

The thing is doing this properly that means if you follow the instructions, you'll be sure succeed. Otherwise may lead to soft brick or even hard.

And now I'm using RUI with TWRP, everything works fine. If you're wanted to switch back to ColorOS it's possible but, for that you sure need TWRP (recommended) and some knowledge to edit things inside the RMX2030 ColorOS ozip. The thing is installing Custom Recovery in RUI is tricky.

Sorry what, I forgot to reply you. I'm Using RMX2030 Rooted already (2 months with ColorOS + 1 month with RUI) and Many others too. Don't worry you'll get what you need.

Thanks for doing this but I still can't get the Custom Recovery to boot I'm afraid

I tried:
fastboot flash recovery ofox.img
fastboot flash vbmeta vbmeta.img
fastboot reboot bootloader

That booted back into fastboot and still shows "Secure Boot" and I selected "Recovery mode" but that just rebooted into fastboot.

Then I tried:
fastboot flash recovery ofox.img
fastboot --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

and selected "Recovery mode" on the phone but it just rebooted into fastboot.

Then I tried:
fastboot flash recovery ofox.img
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

and selected "Recovery mode" on the phone but again it just rebooted into fastboot.

I then tried the last set of commands with twrp instead of OrangeFox but still had the same result.

So I don't really know where I'm going wrong.
