Flash OFP File in Realme Devices using Realme Flash Tool

In this tutorial, we will show you how to flash the OFP files onto your Realme device using the Realme Flash Tool. Realme has always set its priority straight- and that is to cater to userbase mostly interested in the budget segment. It has a plethora of devices already lined up and plenty more along the lines ready to make its way. Likewise, it also has a pretty decent custom development support. Well not exactly along the lines of other OEMs, but it is surely catching up nevertheless.

Once you unlock the bootloader on your Realme device, you could try out an ocean of tweaks and tricks. From gaining administrative privileges in the form of root to flashing custom recovery like TWRP, the possibilities stand endless. Likewise, you could also flash custom binaries, magisk modules, Substratum Themes, and many other mods. The recent entry to this list is the OEM’s own flash tool. In this regard, this guide will show you how to flash the OFP files onto your Realme device using the Realme Flash Tool. Follow along for the detailed instructions set.


Flash OFP File via Realme Flash Tool

Before we list out the flashing instructions, there are a few important points that we would like to discuss. Please go through them beforehand and then only proceed with the instructions.

Important Points to Consider

  • You could only flash the OFP package with this tool, and not the Realme stock firmware that comes in OZIP format.
  • The Flash Tool is compatible with all the Realme devices. However, as of now, the OFP package is only available for a couple of Realme devices, so you cannot use it across “all” devices as of now. The OEM is slowly adding support for more Realme devices and we would update this guide accordingly. So, head over to this guide’s Compatibility section given below and see if your device is there or not. if it isn’t there, then all you could do is play the waiting game until Realme releases the OFP firmware for your device.
  • This tool isn’t made compatible with Qualcomm Emergency Download Mode (EDL). So if you end up hard-bricking your device, then although you could still boot to the EDL method, this tool wouldn’t be of any use as such. This is one of the major drawbacks of this tool that Realme should address at the earliest.
  • Likewise, you cannot downgrade to a lower Android version using this tool. Although you could still downgrade to a lower ColorOS or RealmeUI, but not from RealmeUI to ColorOS6 or ColorOS6 to ColorOS 5 and so on.
  • While Realme has mentioned that this tool is only for Indian variant devices, but that doesn’t seem to be the case explicitly. Many non-Indian variants of Realme devices have successfully flashed the OFP file onto their Realme devices. Just make sure to grab hold of the correct OFP package and you’re good to go.

Device Compatibility List

Till the time of writing, the following devices are compatible with the flashing of the OFP files via the Realme Flash Tool. As mentioned before, this list will continuously be updated, as and when Realme adds more this device to this list.

  • Realme X | Realme X2 | Realme X2 Pro | Realme X50 Pro



  • Download and install the Android SDK Platform Tools on your PC. This will provide us with the necessary ADB and Fastboot binaries.
  • Likewise, you should also enable USB Debugging on your Realme device. This is needed so that your PC recognizes your device in ADB Mode. We would only be needing the ADB command to boot your device to the Fastboot mode.

  • All the data on your device will be wiped off as well. So please create a complete device backup before you begin with the flashing part.
  • It goes without that your device should be sufficiently charged as well so that it doesn’t turn off mid-way during the process. At least a 50% battery level is recommended.

That’s all the requirements. You may now proceed with the steps to flash the OFP files onto your Realme device using the Realme Flash Tool.
