    I have unlocked bootloader of my Realme C3 using ADB/Fastboot driver, after unlocking Select Boot Mode Screen appears but volume up/down selection does not work
    You can say stucked on Select Boot Mode Screen no keys working

    After pressing Power button for few seconds the system restarts normally (with warning Orange state The bootloader is unlocked bla bla)

    All user data erased, need to set-up from start
    Again Powered off and restarted in bootloader mode two lines displayed on screen i.e Unlock verify ok bla bla

    Tried this process many time but same problem

    Any suggestion please

    Try relocking the bootloader and see whether anything changes.

    Were the volume keys working before you unlocked the bootloader?

    I'm a little puzzled though: I've unlocked bootloaders before now, and the phone boots normally the first time - no extra "select boot mode screen". Of course I've never used (or, that I'm aware of, even seen) a Realme device, so this may be something they do. But since entering different boot modes is often accomplished by booting while pressing one or more keys, and you say that the volume keys are not working, I can't help wonder whether these things are connected, i.e. that the volume key is stuck and that's why it's booting into this funny mode? Just speculating here.

    Well I have tried locking and unlocking again twice to confirm and the same is faced again.
    My volume keys are working fine.
    After entering the command fastboot flash unlock , a black screen pops up with instructions stating that pressing volume key down to unlock and volume key up to lock and so on.
    When i press volume key down, it states boot loader is unlocked and another black screen pops up which states select boot menu and has three options but the volume keys dont work on this menu.
    Seems like stucked. From here a long press power is required to reboot the phone

    So this menu goes away when you relock, or it makes no difference?

    What are the 3 options on the select boot screen menu? As I say, this is something I've not encountered: in my experience unlocking the bootloader changes nothing other than that you gain the ability to flash the phone's partitions with unsigned firmware.

    A long shot, but did you try using the touchscreen for that menu? Usually bootloader menus aren't touch sensitive, but if the buttons do nothing but seem to be working otherwise then that's the other possibility that occurs to me.

    Well the boot menu is not touch sensitive and it does not appear again either locked or unlocked.
    The 3 options on boot menu are
    Recovery mode
    >>Fastboot mode
    Reboot (I think but not confirmed about this option)

    In which Fastboot is selected and it is stated that press volume up to change the selection and volume down to confirm.

    do you have usb debugging turned on? do you have adb and fastboot setup? if so you can command the phone to boot into fastboot mode.

    open the command from the appropiate folder and type:
    Code (Text):
    1. adb reboot bootloader

    what are you trying to do? root the phone?
