  1. Hello!
    I have a Realme C30 RMX3581 and I just got an error with text “In-depth Test install error: Can’t install it”. How you installed it? I searched Internet and no one apk installer can be installed… Don’t understand why.

  2. I have a Realme 7, and also cannot install the unlock app. The error message is rather cryptic: “Something went wrong. The app was not installed.”
