Realme X Custom ROM Download and Custom Kernel Sources Released



Realme launched the Realme X in July 2019 which was received by the Indian market auspiciously. Although it received a few questions about the old Snapdragon 710 chipset, more or less, it was a decent device. Especially, AMOLED and Pop-Up with a full-screen display in the mid-range made a lot of buyers go crazy. In October, just 3-months later, Realme shipped units to the custom kernel and ROM developers. Until now, we already have Realme X Custom ROM download support for LineageOS 16, which is a quite popular custom ROM. Also, there is an unofficial release of TWRP recovery to enhance the flashing experience. Now there is 5 more Realme X Custom ROM download available for the users.

arter97 released the first custom kernel for the Realme X which includes better battery management, UFS optimization, WireGuard support, etc. Point to be noted, his Kernel works with LineageOS 16 and doesn’t support stock ColorOS. Although we can assume that it will work with other AOSP ROMs.

As a down point, arter97, who is a reputed custom kernel developer, isn’t happy with the development for the Realme X. He describes the development as “HORRIBLE” with Realme hiding a lot of source codes which is not being developer-friendly. He has addressed his issues to the organization in his twitter thread.
