Back in July this year, Realme launched the Realme X in India and the mid-range device was received quite well. In a bid to make the device more attractive to buyers, the company then shipped units to custom ROM and kernel developers. Thanks to Realme’s proactive support, we saw the prompt release of a LineageOS 16 ROM and unofficial TWRP custom recovery for the device. Third-party development for the device has been on high-gear ever since. In our last development update for the device, we covered the first custom kernel for the device and 5 new custom ROMs based on Android 9 Pie. Now, developers have released an unofficial build of LineageOS 17 for the device, giving users a chance to experience Android 10 before the official ColorOS 7 release.
