Chinese OEM Realme has now become one of the most sought after brands across the globe. Realme started off with budget-centric and mid-range devices. Now, the brand is all into crafting some breathtaking flagships in the market. Realme devices offer a relatively higher value for money compared to other devices. Realme grew into fame in a very short span of time, and now it has a huge fanbase around the world. This has evoked the growth of a good developer community support for Realme devices. ColorOS is not pretty much loved by users, and the Realme UI also doesn’t make this relatively better.
This makes good developer support for Realme devices much needed. Realme users can now enjoy the benefits of custom ROMs and all those cool features. Realme X2 Pro is one of the very first killer flagships by Realme. This is a really powerful device with a beautiful design as well. The device currently runs on the latest Realme UI based on Android 10. But, you can enjoy flashing other amazing custom ROMS if you aren’t satisfied with the stock OS.
Realme X2 Pro Custom ROMs and Recoveries:
In case you don’t know, Custom ROMs and kernels are OS, which can be installed on any phone to get new features and better performance that is not allowed by the stock OS of a device. You can easily flash a Custom OS or kernel using a custom recovery like TWRP, PitchBlack, OrangeFox or any other. The Realme X2 Pro has now got a couple of Custom ROMs and recoveries under its sleeves.
The X2 Pro is one of the most amazing flagships and still a powerful one to date. The device itself comes with a beautiful 6.5 inch Super AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate. It houses the powerful Qualcomm SM8150 Snapdragon 855+ chipset. The device offers up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. The device has a huge 4000 mAh battery with 50W SuperVOOC Charging support.
Talking about the camera, the device also has a quad-camera setup at the back with a 64 MP primary sensor. On the front, it has got a 16 MP selfie shooter. This brilliant device has a lot of custom ROMs, kernels, MODs, and other amazing stuff. Today we will be sharing with some of the best and most amazing of this stuff. Here is a list of the top picks that we have curated for you.
LineageOS is probably the most popular Custom ROM we have heard of. They recently released its new build 17.1 based on Android 10. This ROM provides one of the best stock Android experience along with smoother experience. The latest Lineage OS 17.1 is now also available for the Realme X2 Pro. However, this is not the official build and rather the unofficial version. But, things make it clear that the official version will also be available soon for this device. You can download the latest build of LineageOS 17.1 and older version as well from the link given below. The ROM has SELinux permissions enabled and requires you to flash a separate zip file to use VoLTE features. Also, you have to downgrade your device to ColorOS 6.1 before flashing this ROM.
AOSiP ROM is based on the Android Open Source Project. It is one of the best AOSP based custom ROMs we have seen so far. AOSiP 10 comes with the latest Android 10. This is, in fact, one of the best AOSP ROM with tons of customizations on top of the stock Android. You can tweak pretty much everything. Starting from the icons and status bars to every tiny thing that you see on your home screen can be easily customized. However, this is not the official build and rather the unofficial version. But, things make it clear that the official version will also be available soon for this device.

TWRP which stands for Team Win Recovery Project and is probably the oldest and one of the best Custom Recoveries so far. TWRP lets us flash several MODs and Custom ROMs. Not just that but it also allows us to perform the backup of the whole device and restore it as well. It also lets us wipe the cache or the entire memory and perform a reset. The official build of TWRP for the X2 Pro has been around since December but developers have also released some latest bleeding-edge unofficial builds some interesting experimental features.
