Bootloader unlocking always has some pros and cons, so these are a few things that you should consider before realme C3 bootloader unlocking.

How to switch back to stock realme UI?

To roll back to stock realme UI from a custom ROM, users need to visit the service center. It will be done free of charge as per the realme community post. realme has released a flashtool for Android 10 but doesn’t support realme C3 yet, officially.

What about the warranty of my device?

Please refer to the local warranty policy.”, that’s what realme has mentioned in the community post. The company has not mentioned anything clearly regarding the warranty status post bootloader unlocking.

What about the data?

realme C3 bootloader unlocking will erase all the data on the device so make sure to back up your data before proceeding.

Will it affect realme UI OTA updates?

realme says bootloader unlocking might cause for the secure user data partition to become inaccessible. But if you simply unlock the bootloader (without flashing custom recoveries or rooting) you will still receive official software updates (OTAs).

Anything else?

Bootloader unlocking will also downgrade the Widevine certification level to L3 from L1. Users will not be able to stream content in HD on apps like Hotstar, Amazon Prime Videos, and Netflix.

These are a few things that you should keep in mind before realme C3 bootloader unlocking. realme has released flashtool for Android 10, which can be used for flashing back to realme UI.
