  1. Flash Vbmeta

Before installing a custom recovery on any smartphone, it is recommended that you flash the Vbmeta file. Vbmeta disables the encryption and protection to allow ROMs to be flashed on your device. Here’s how to do so:

  • Connect your phone to your PC with a USB cable and open the Command Prompt
  • Next, type in the following commands:

adb reboot bootloader

fastboot –disable-verity –disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta.img

Completing these steps will disable the Android Verified Boot (AVB) and allow you to flash custom recovery without bricking the device.

  1. Flash Custom Recovery

To flash the ROM, you need a custom recovery. For this guide, we will be using PBRP (Pitch Black Recovery Project), which is an easy-to-use and stable custom recovery for Realme C3/Narzo 10A.

  • Download the PBRP zip file mentioned above, then extract it to get a recovery.img file inside TWRP folder.
  • Once the vbmeta has been flashed, now you have to flash the custom recovery. [Please don’t skip that vbmeta step, or else the device will brick]
  • Next, find and copy the name of the recovery.img file and type it into the Command Prompt in a similar manner as mentioned below.

Finally, type the following command to reboot the device into recovery (PBRP).

  • Make sure your device is in recovery mode. If it isn’t, reboot your phone into PBRP by connecting it to the PC and type the following command in the bootloader/fastboot mode:

fastboot reboot recovery

  • Now, go ahead to the Wipe menu and Format Data.

Format Data Recovery

  • Then, head over to the Install menu, select the file, and confirm flashing by dragging the slider.

  • Finally, if you would like to flash Magisk for rooting, flash the Magisk 22.1 zip by the same method.
  • Then Wipe Dalvik and Cache, and reboot the system.

With this, you should have now successfully flashed the ROM on your device. Note that the first boot might take around 5mins, so do not panic.
