In the old days, people have to unlock the boot loader, gain the root access to install system apps like google play services.

But in the latest Huawei Mate 30, I discovered there is a system menu to enable "administrator" rights.

Settings ->Security->more settings->Device Administrator

The lzplay method also using the "admin" permission to install the google apps.

It's quite interesting that user can choose to activate or deactivate the admin rights granted to apps like lzplay.

I am not sure how much permission does this administrator have, but it definitely installing gapps to the mate30. May be we can use this admin rights to do something more.

Hope this thread will inspire developers who want to do something to bring google back yo the device

Not working anymore... maybe with root, or changing the id from mate 30, with some port....

Is this speculation or you know for sure?

I'm wondering since LZPlay is essentially getting the packages from their server, with some proxy work, will that be possible to sideload our own apk file to it (or any apk...hmmmmm), will need some reverse engineering but I will try that after I got my Mate 30 Pro

Can't the APK files be pushed via ADB?

Instead of ADB, huawei is using its HDB, it's possible that there are hidden command that directly pushing files to the sysyem folder

I have just playing with a mate30 Pro, connected to a PC and discovered that there is a ROM flashing option in the offical HiSuite software. May be third party ROM will be possible?
