Hello Fans of realme X50 5G,


Want to unlock your bootloader? Here is the step-by-step guide you have been waiting for - but please make sure to read the disclaimer too so you will know what to expect!


Keep in mind that the process of unlocking the bootloader will be referred to as in-depth test in the tutorial.


First, please read the “Disclaimer” carefully.

【Disclaimer】

1. After unlocking your phone ALL OF YOUR DATA WILL BE ERASED! Backup before you proceed.

2. In-depth test may have unforeseeable impacts on your phone.

3. Some functions may not operate properly because of third-party firmware, such as the photo-taking function of the camera. It may also cause device damage.

4. Personal and confidential information on phone may leak, and security may be compromised.

5. In-depth test may modify some of the system functions, and prevent you from updating the system version to enjoy the latest ColorOS.


Second, read the steps below for the in-depth test

Preparation:

realme X50 5G - with 60%+ battery

1 x USB Cable

1 x PC / MacBook



Step 1. Make sure you have backed up your data, unlocking your phone will erase all of your data.

Step 2. Make sure your system version is the official and latest one.

Step 3. Download and install the unlock tool apk on your phone.

FAQ

#1. Download the unlock tool again to apply to exit the in-depth test.

Q2: Are there any risks after unlocking the bootloader?

Please be aware that realme cannot guarantee the full functionality, and will not be responsible, for any third-party unsigned custom ROM being flashed onto your device after the bootloader is unlocked. An unsigned third-party custom ROM may not have gone through the thorough tests that we run for each device and software version that we release.

A third-party custom ROM may not work properly on your device, and certain functions and services may cease to work. The performance and device data may also be affected, and may damage the device permanently. In the worst case, unlocking bootloader will cause physical injuries or material damage for ex. due to device overheating.



Q3: Will it affect future OTAs after unlocking?

Secure user data partition may also become inaccessible and you will not be able to get official software upgrades if you unlock the bootloader. Once re-locked the bootloader, users will receive official OTAs again.



Q4: Will it affect warranty?

Warranty will be fully applied to problems caused by realme 3 unlocking or flashing a custom ROM.



Q5: How to flash back the official ROM after installing a custom ROM?

Users need to go to a service center to flash the device FREE of charge.

Hello there, Thank you for your detailed explanation for unlocking bootloader for Realme X50 5G.
I used to download the deeptest apk from other website, but the result was not successful. The deeptest app said "my device is not supported."
My device model is RMX2025. And my quick question is this deeptest app will support RMX2025, won't it?

This app supports RMX2051.

I received my realme x50 5g yesterday and it was already updated.
My model is RMX2144. It is the European version right?
Will the application work on this model? Thank you!!

I have RMX2051 but when I install the deep testing apk, it opens and then the app closes immediately. Any idea why this happens?

Notes:
- OEM unlock is enabled
- All permissions for the app are enabled and I also restarted my phone but it still crashes
- USB debugging is enabled (though this isn't relevant for opening the app)

Could it be because I'm on Android 11 and this apk only supports Android 10?

If no solution.... what is the purpose of the deeptesting application? What would happen if I just skip this step and proceed to the fastboot tool step with the PC?

It is possible that your deeptesting app does not support Android 11 as you assumed. If you fail to run deeptesting and unlock your phone, your fastboot commands to manipulate the system will not work. That means you cannot skip deeptesting step for unlocking purpose. Another possiblility is Realme changed their mind and canceled unlocking all models of X50 5G. So there is no possible deeptesting app available for X50 5G again.

Anyways if you do intend to unlock your RMX2051, there are a couple methods that may work:
1. Downgrade your Android 11 to Android 10 by flashing tool to flash official firmware of Android 10. Or any possible ways to do this.
2. Try factory reset and install and run deeptesting app again.
3. Search and download deeptesting app for Android 11, if this may exist.

Hope one of this works.
