  1. Hi.
    Not able to create vbmeta.img using magisk install. It shows the error unsupported/unknown IMG file… Can you help me with this?

  2. Selva,
    Does Realme stop giving updates after you unlock bootloader or on installing a custom recovery?
    I plan to get in-depth permission, unlock the bootloader, use temporary twrp (via cable not flash it), flash just the magisk zip, and use the mods…
    I am guessing this should not block updates? Do I need to flash the kernel if I want to use Magisk to get a superuser?

    • Most of the time, all mobile manufacturers don’t push the updates if you installed a custom recovery. Unlocked Bootloader doesn’t matter. But If you have root, you can’t get the update. You should flash the firmware manually using TWRP.

  3. Can’t use the In-Depth Test.
    I got it to run, but it just hung when I ran it. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but now it just says I can’t install it because an app with the same name already exists, although the app doesn’t appear in my list of apps.
    Is there a way to root my phone without using the In-Depth Test?

    • Without the In-Depth test, we can’t unlock the bootloader. The step is necessary. Enable USB Debugging and try again.

  4. Bro, are you Tamil. I got some doubts when I am going to start the rooting process.. please help.. I have a language issue..if you are Tamil. I understand this process very well.
