How to Unbrick Realme GT 5G via Fastboot Commands

In this guide, we will show you the steps to unbrick your Realme GT 5G device via Fastboot Commands. The device from this Chinese OEM seems to have check-marked most of the prerequisites that one could have asked for from a device belonging to this domain. The likes of Snapdragon 888 chipset, 120hz refresh rate, up to 12GB RAM, and 65W fast charging are just some of its noteworthy features.

Along the same lines, these devices are quite an active player in custom development as well. Be it for flashing the custom ROM, installing a custom recovery like TWRP, or gaining administrative privileges by rooting your device via Magisk, there’s a lot to look forward to. However, this is just one side of the coin.

Trying out these tweaks could also spell out trouble for you if you end up flashing an incorrect binary or flash it to the incorrect partition. In such cases, a softbrick or boot-looped device is usually on the cards. Fortunately, you could easily unbrick your Realme GT 5G device by flashing the stock firmware via Fastboot Commands. And in this guide, we will show you how to do just that. Follow along.

In most cases, a soft-bricked or boot looped device might already be in the Fastboot Mode. However, if you are stuck in a bootloop, then long-press the Power key to turn it off. Then press and hold the Power and Volume Down keys (or Power and Volume Up in some devices) together to boot your device to Fastboot Mode.

However, if you are unable to power off the device, then let its battery drain out. Once that happens, connect it to the charger. Then as soon as it is about to boot up, use the Power and Volume Up/Down keys and it will straightaway boot to Fastboot Mode.

STEP 5: Format Device via Fastboot

  1. Head over to the platform-tools folder where the extracted ROM is present.
  2. Then go to its address bar, type in CMD in its address and hit Enter. This will launch the CMD window.
  3. Now execute the below command to perform a factory reset (optional but recommended)
    fastboot -w

STEP 6: Flash Realme GT 5G Firmware via Fastboot | Unbrick It

Now just execute each of the below commands, one at a time, inside the CMD window that you have opened in the platform-tools folder. No need to check for or specify the active slot, the commands will automatically flash the partitions files to their active slots.
