realme X Users can now rollback to Android 9!


With realme UI 1.0, realme gave Android 10 to a lot of devices and it has quite a few issues of its own which are being fixed continuously with monthly security patch updates. But in case the user wants to roll back to Android Pie which was based on Color OS 6, it is now possible. realme X rollback build makes it possible for users to go back to previous versions, i.e., Android 9 if the current one is not of their liking.


Your realme X will need to be on C.04 or newer builds. You need to have a backup of your data, as flashing this rollback build will wipe your storage. You must also have more than 60% battery to avoid any issues while downgrading.


How to rollback to Android Pie on realme X!

  • You need to be on the C.04 or newer builds
  • Download and place the downloaded file in the root of internal storage, (directly in the Internal storage, not inside folders)
  • Click on the downloaded rollback file
  • Select ‘Upgrade Now’ if you decide to rollback.
  • The Process will take a few minutes and you will be downgraded to Android Pie


  • Can I still receive an update reminder of realme UI or ColorOS 6 after rollback?
    No, you will not receive any update reminder once you roll back.
  • How to update to the latest version?
    If you want to update to latest version, you will need to download the file and update manually.
