A bootloader is the piece of code that runs before the operating system and tells the phone how to boot and find the system kernel. 
The bootloader image is always specific to a device because each phone has different specifications and processors.

ROMs, mods, and custom files are an important part of the Android experience. 
However, with a locked bootloader, you cannot flash custom ROMs, kernels, or root your phone.

Before you can perform any of these operations, you need to unlock your Realme 7 Pro bootloader.
