1. Can I Unlock Bootloader on Vivo Y20 2021?

Bootloader comes with a locked condition on each device and so the Vivo models need to be unlocked first to become able to get into the Android customization world.

It seems that you’re not being able to unlock the bootloader quite easily on your Vivo Y20 2021 because Vivo has blocked the bootloader unlocking process due to security measurements related to the device system and the user data.

An improper method or incompatible file can seriously damage your handset internally that means leads to bootloop or bricked status.

Again the answer will be NO because without unlocking the bootloader on your Android device, you won’t be able to flash root or gain superuser access whatsoever.

3. Can I Install Custom ROM on Vivo Y20 2021?

Unfortunately, as of now, you won’t be able to install any custom or modified firmware on your Vivo Y20 2021 because you are neither able to unlock the bootloader nor gain root access.
