Realme Narzo 50A is one of the latest smartphones that has been launched in July 2021. It comes with MediaTek Helio G85 5G SoC, paired with the Mali-G52 MC2 GPU. While the handset runs on Android 11 out of the box. Now, some of the interested users are asking whether there will be a Custom ROM for Realme Narzo 50A or not anytime soon.
Although MediaTek Helio G85 delivers an excellent performance in day to day usage and during gameplay for hours that pumps its Arm Mali-G52 GPU to a 1GHz peak frequency, blasting performance. In some aspects the device loses badly such as lackluster camera quality, average software experience, slightly on the heavier side that may not come in handy while longer gameplay sessions, more than average audio quality, etc.
So, you may ask why there is no custom firmware available yet for the Realme Narzo 50A Edition or Redmi K40 Gaming Edition. Well, the same question has been asked hundred times on multiple online forums such as XDA Developers and the answer is surprising a bit. So, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into the topic.
Will There Be a Custom ROM for Realme Narzo 50A?
According to plenty of users, even though the AOSP development for the Realme Narzo 50A will be slow enough or may not happen due to the MediaTek Helio G85 processor, there should a dedicated forum page for this model.
While some are saying that the MediaTek Helio G85 chipset has an open resource architecture so there would be no issues at all in terms of the chipset-specific device. Whereas some are assuming that even the XDA Developers team hasn’t allocated the Realme Narzo 50A forum yet that means there will be no hope for the Custom ROM development of this device.
To be precise, there is no connection between a custom firmware development and a dedicated forum for the device model. Whereas there are plenty of device models available that don’t have any dedicated forum page on XDA but their custom ROM has been available.
But it seems that plenty of Realme Narzo 50A users are literally requesting over and over again to create a new forum for it individually to the XDA Developers team for a while.
Luckily, there is a new device forum requests page available on the XDA Developers website where you can ask for adding the Realme Narzo 50A Forum by voting for it. Just click on the mentioned link and post your comment by only typing the device model (i,e; Realme Narzo 50A). It’s quite surprising that even the Realme Narzo 50A has become open source, there is no Custom ROM (Aftermarket Firmware) available yet.
Hopefully, XDA or other custom firmware developers will soon release a stable Custom ROM for the Realme Narzo 50A. Till then, we’ll have to wait for it or you can try the Android 12 GSI build.
