Dear friends,

I just bought a Huawei Ascend P6 in a local chinese store - and its awesome!

Besides that there are no Google Apps installed. I managed to install the Play Store, Gmail, Maps, Google Now by just simply downloading the .apks and installing them.

Nevertheless, I can't add a Google Account which means I can not sync my google contacts

What I tryed so far:
  • Booting to Stock Recovery and trying to install GAPPS --> Failed to to Error "Wrong Verification"
  • Extracted GAPPS archiev and moved all Apps.apk to System/app. Also set the right permissions (rrw - r - r) --> No effect

My Phone is already successfully rooted. What can I do? Please help me =)

Hello,

I also have the ascend P6 chinese version

Can you please tell me what the error message you receive when trying to sync.

From my part I managed to join the device with the google account and also sync contacts.

Only difference from what you told me earlier was that I didn't have the device rooted when I synced.

What tool did you use to sync ?

There is no error message. I just don't have the option to add a Google Account under "Settings" -> "Add Account". Play Store however created one as well as Gmail. But calender sync or contact sync is not working.

What modifications did you make to your phone? How did you manage to add an full featured Google Account under "Settings"?

I am experiencing this exact same issue. I just bought the P6 in Beijing. I downloaded the google play market from the preinstalled custom markets but there is no option to sync contacts or calendars.

Any advice?

I didn't make any modification - i just install google play and download all the applications - the moment I signed into gmail and play store i was asked to sync

It's probably due to some error or bug

Gmail? But we are talking about google contacts

By the way I managed to sync my calendar by downloading Google Calendar from the app market.

Absolutely right, my eMails were synced - and of course a Google Account was created in the phone therefore (by GMail App). Nevertheless contact sync was not working since this is not a "full featured" Google Account but more like a GMail sync account atm.

ALSO I made a horrible mistake. I downloaded the latest GApps (for Android 4.2.2 - should be the right ones actually?) and installed them in the "root\Systems\App" folder of my device. I also changed the permissions to rw-r-r according to multiple postings I found all around the web. Now my phone does start, but BEFORE the homescreen or anything is loaded there is a error message saying something like

"Setup Wizard stopped working". It comes up repeatetly! Everytime I click OK this message comes up again! I can not use my phone anymore.

FYI, Setup Wizard is the App who starts when first time starting an Android device for initial setup of Accounts and introduction in your phone.

How can I fix it?? Right now my phone is bricked. I can not access the Settings or anything. I am rooted, but without custom recovery. Can someone uploade the International Stock Rom of the P6?

€: I tried to flash the original chinese rom I found at Huawei webpage, but my Stock Recovery is saying:

Huawei SDCARD&USB UPDATE AGENDT 2.0
This phone is secureboot phone.
This phone is LOCK state.
Update Package: /sdcard/dload/UPDATE.APP <-- This is the Rom I want to install
checking sd update pkg ...
Huawei SD card update fail

Hey man,

thx for the tip, I finally got it back working! Even better, the international version already brings full google integration. Perfect!

For your question: Search for a tool name eRoot. You can find it here - sorry that its in German.

BTW: Guys! Never ever buy MicroSD Cards at chinese fake markets! I bought a 16GB card and fpr pictures etc its working perfectly. But when I wanted to flash the ROM it came up all the time with above mentioned error messages. After I changed to a legit SD card from Germany everything was working perfectly. =D

Hmm, so if I get this right I can install this rom on my Chinese p6 to make it international? How do I do this and is it recommendable? My phone is fresh, not rooted or anything. At the moment everything works except contact sync. However contact sync is important for me. Would this void my warranty?
