Realme launched the Realme XT back in the last year running ColorOS 6.0 on top of Android 10. The smartphone recently received the Android 10-based Realme UI 1.0 update with a bunch of new features. Among them, we have dual earphone connection, animated wallpapers, customizable icon shape, new charging animation, Realme Share (cross-brand file-sharing technology) and more.
According to the company, Realme UI is crafted to provide a near-stock Android experience. However, there’s still some stuff from Oppo’s ColorOS 7. If you wish to enjoy a true Android-lie experience on your Realme XT we have some good nows. The mid-range smartphone is now getting official Havoc OS (Android 10) support. If you’re Unaware, Havoc OS is one of the most popular custom ROMs in the third-party Android community. It includes a vanilla Android experience but also introduces several new features. Thus allowing users to customize it according to their taste.
To flash a custom ROM, users will need to unlock the bootloader and flash a custom recovery. Worth noting that unlocking bootloader does not void the warranty. Realme is quite friendly with developers. That said, flashing a custom ROM won’t be a problem as well. You can find both the custom recovery file (TWRP) and the download link for the ROM below.
