Realme 6 Pro: guide to unlocking the bootloader and installing TWRP

Realme is going strong in the sales of its terminals which are becoming increasingly popular, so much so that they attract the attention of the people of modding. In particular Realme 6 Pro represents the right compromise in the quality / price ratio thanks to a photo holder that uses a 64 MP primary sensor and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G processor that offers performance well above expectations in the mid-range range. But to take advantage of the modding you have to unlock the bootloade and install the TWRP recovery, so we explain how to do it.
