Hi please can you provide files for Realme GT Neo Flash Edition (FE) as it has the latest firmware A.11. You provided files for only GT Neo and X7 Max. Find attached a screenshot showing the current GT Neo Flash Edition Firmware. Thank you
Hi, did you manage to install a custom ROM on this device or change it to global x7 max? Gt neo fe and x7 max seem to be the same device, at least spec-wise.

Calm down!
The following video I used myself and recommend as well.


But as the phone is bricked your actions will start from that part of the video where MTKAuthBypassTool is used, here when the realme logo disappears in your phone hold vol- and vol+ together and plug the usb cable quickly and perform rest of the process.

I would recommend watching the whole video and the xda page 2 or 3 times before performing the process.

If followed accordingly, your phone will be restored within an hour.

X7 MAX and GT NEO FLASH/UBRICK

Please read all the information before proceeding.

1) In Developer options need turn "ON", "OEM unlock" and USB Debug.

We are waiting. After about 15-60 minutes (or more), the unlock tool will show the status of the unlock request. If it shows that the unlock was successful (as in the screenshot below), we proceed to the next step.
You can exit the app and log in later to check the status.

The device itself should reboot into fastboot mode.
You should have ADB drivers installed, if there are none, then you will see an Android device in the device manager.
The ADB drivers are in the "Programs and Drivers" folder at the links above, unpack and install them manually.
Click on "Android", then "driver", then "update driver". Next, " Find drivers on this PC (search and install the driver manually)".
Next, "Select a driver from the list of available ones", then "Show all devices" (this item may remain), then "install from disk", search for our adb drivers folder, click on " android_winusb. inf "
and select"Android Bootloader Interface" from the list. Done.

Next, run BL UNLOCK.bat from the folder "Unlock Bootloader", Read the instructions in the bat file, press any key. We look at the phone. Confirm Unlcok.
After that, we run FASTBOOT REBOOT.bat
This restart will delete all user data.
Then turn off the phone. Disconnect the USB cable.

Click " Start deep testing”

3) Disable Driver Signature Enforcement in Windows 10: Video tutorial

4) Download all utilites and unpack: Programms and Drivers

5) Download A27 (GT_NEO) firmwire and unpack: A27 Firmwire for FTools (MEGA); A27 Firmwire for FTools (GDrive)

8) In Download Agent choose MTK_AllInOne_DA.bin

9)

@mahotlov
Is this guide working on GT Neo Flash Edition Chinese (Rmx3350)?
What if I want to install a custom rom? Can I skip this globalization process and jump directly to installing twrp? TIA

Dear friends. If you have problems with your phone after formatting, write me a personal message(conversation), I will help you.
As for custom firmware - I don't do custom firmware, I don't develop them and I'm not interested in it. Please ask you questions about custom firmware in another topic.

P.S> GT NEO, X7 MAX, GT NEO Flash Edition - the same phones and instructions are suitable for all of them

@mahotlov hello can i use x7 max rom for gt neo 2t (1200 ai) ?

DOnt know.....you have 2t firmwire?

I can confirm that the X7 Max stock firmware (A15 Global India) does NOT work on the GT Neo 2T. After flashing, the touchscreen and display no longer work. The GT Neo 2T must have slightly different hardware compared to the GT Neo/GT Neo FE/X7 Max, despite the seemingly matching specs and design.

Thankfully, download mode still works. Fastboot also works even though the display remains off. I am currently uploading the GT Neo 2T stock firmware (A14 China) for FTools and will share the link here when ready, in case someone else needs it for unbricking.

The TWRP custom recovery for the X7 Max does appear to be fully working on the GT Neo 2T. However, I tried every custom ROM available for the X7 Max and none of them made it past the startup animation. Evolution-X did start up ADB, but the logs showed startup was unable to proceed past some infinitely looping errors. Despite the phone showing as Treble capable, the few GIS ROMs I tested did not even make it to the startup animation.

I'm happy to test further if anyone has more ideas, but at this time it seems like the stock firmware is the only option for the GT Neo 2T.

Without the ability to run global or custom ROMs, the GT Neo 2T is very frustrating to use. Android Auto is unsupported, many other features don't work, and the stock SMS app can't be changed. Breeno and many other Chinese market applications are baked into ColorOS and can't be removed or disabled. If anyone knows of fixes for any of these issues, please share! Realme support has told me in no uncertain terms they do not plan to provide solutions, and probably won't release a global ROM or sources. It's unfortunate, because the hardware itself is very nice for the price!

I've removed quite a few of the bloatware. Can't you root your device and uninstall them?
So far I know that weather service shouldn't be uninstalled as it causes the screen to lock/unlock. But it can be disabled.
The stock app can be replaced, I tried that and put some simple SMS app, but it didn't have MMS so I switched back to the stock one which is pretty fine.
What is unpleasant is that I can't simply uninstall/disable/stop app market, wallpapers and themes and a few others without rooting the phone.
Other than I don't have other complains about the rom especially after debloating it.
And yes - the hardware is very good for the price

Thanks for the suggestion, I actually just went that route after writing my last post! I was a little hesitant since I haven't done any of that in years but it went fairly well.

Unlocked bootloader, installed Magisk and SafetyNet bypass, then removed all the bloat using ADB. I was happy to see that removing Breeno reverted the stock launcher to using the Google Feed for swipe in from the left.

After that I installed Android Auto, Google Assistant and the Google app, then used ADB to grab the APKs and systemize them, which got Andoid Auto and OK Google working properly.

I am now very happy with the phone! Like you I also tried to replace the Messages app and it broke SMS/MMS, but as you mentioned the stock one is perfectly fine. Just have to watch out for any future OTA updates reverting some of my changes, but knowing what to do now it shouldn't take long to fix if that happens.

    Thanks a lot. Finally flashed my Realme GT neo FE(CN Variant) to Realme X7 Max and BL locked again for OTA update(It works!). even mine is FE... everything works fine, just except call recording on google dialer.

    Can anyone tell me that firmware of GT neo A27 in that link is global or Chinese? and the call recording on dialer works? actually the google dialer in this X7 Max firmware has no call recording.
