realme has been busy releasing Android 10 based realme UI 1.0 to eligible devices. realme X has already received the update, and Android 10 based Kernel Source codes are also released. Now, realme has updated its unlock tool which will let realme X users unlock the bootloader of their devices. Bootloader unlocking always has some pros and cons, so these are a few things that you should consider before realme X 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 is working on a flashtool for Android 10, which we are expecting to be released in coming months.
What about the warranty of my device?
“Please refer to 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 X 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 affect OTA updates, and users will also not get official OTA updates. Unlocking bootloader makes the secure data partition inaccessible, so OTA updates get affected.
Bootloader unlocking will also downgrade 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 X bootloader unlocking. realme is working on a flashtool for Android 10, which we are expecting to be released in the coming months.
