Realme X2 Pro bootloader unlock tool and kernel source code are now available

Realme has seen tremendous growth over the last year, thanks to the company’s compelling lineup of budget and mid-range devices. With the launch of the Realme X2 Pro last month, the company forayed into the affordable flagship space, offering top-of-the-line specifications at a relatively affordable price. The company’s first true flagship packs in a Snapdragon 855+ chipset, coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. Much like other flagships in the market today, it also features a high refresh rate 90Hz display and an impressive quad-camera array. Now, in a bid to promote third-party development for the device, Realme is allowing bootloader unlocking and has released kernel sources for the Realme X2 Pro.


Realme X2 Pro XDA Forums

The bootloader on the Realme X2 Pro can be unlocked using the unlock tool released by Realme on its forums. It’s worth noting that unlocking the bootloader on your device will replace the Widevine L1 certification with Widevine L3 and the in-display fingerprint sensor will stop working until the bootloader is locked again. Unlocking the bootloader will also factory reset your device and disable OTA updates, but it’s absolutely essential if you wish to root your device.

Realme has also released the kernel sources for the device, which will come in handy for third-party kernel, ROM and recovery development. As of now, there aren’t too many customization resources available for the device, but w expect the development to pick up on our forums in the next few days. If you wish to unlock the bootloader of your Realme X2 Pro, you can click on the source link below and follow the instruction in the post. Make sure you back up all your data before proceeding with the process.
