Please see the video and the steps simultaneously and try to understand the steps and I wish you all the luck that you get it in the 1st attempt. ( I got it in the 4th attempt
Step 1 - Download LZPlay.rar and Google Applications from this link below : ( LINK UPDATED )
Step 2 - Extract the above files to your root directory / External USB drive / External SD Card .
Step 3 - The above step will create a folder named Huawei LZPlay and inside there is a folder "Huawei" and further into that, all the back up files required.
Step 4 - Restore Back-Up : Go to settings > On the search bar on the top type in Restore > USB Drive > You should get the file " Mate 30 Pro ( Dated - March,7 2020 ) > Click and Restore
Problem : Please note that you might encounter a possible error where some users may not find the back up file being detected while restoration process because the Huawei Back-Up file cannot be read unless not placed in the root directory.
Solution - Go to root directory / USB Drive > Huawei LZPlay > Copy the Huawei Folder outside in your root directory. In other words, remove it from the Huawei LZPlay folder and paste in USB Drive / Internal Storage (if you do not have access to an OTG Drive ) and then go to settings and try to restore the back up, it will show )
Step 5 - When done, Go to your app drawer, Click on the Chinese G - Icon which you have restored from the LZPlay.rar Back Up File in step 4.
Allow Permissions > Activate > Back to Home Screen > Close All Applications in Background > Open G - Icon App Again > Press the Blue Button Below > The List Starts Circling > ( See video for more clarity ) (SEE VIDEO @ 4:40 )
Step 6 - Now minimize this app and go to Files > USB Drive > Google Installation > Google Installation and You will see files numbered (1-9) .
Please install 1 to 6 one by one as shown in video. Do not open any of the applications. Just install them. ( SEE VIDEO @ 5:19)
Step 7 - Once Installation for apps 1 to 6 done, close all background applications. Now go to G Icon App again and press the blue button below and minimize.
Step 8 - Google Account Sign- in : After Step 9, Go to Phone Settings > User and Accounts > Add Account > Google > Add an existing.
Loading screen for adding new account for 30 secs notification will appear > Add as many accounts you wish to now as you can't add anymore later. ( SEE VIDEO @ 6:45 )
Step 9 - After your account is added successfully, CLEAR BACKGROUND APPS AND THEN GO to File > USB drive > Google Installation > Google Installation > and install Google Services Framework from Google Installation folder in your External USB Drive / SD Card ( File 7 ) ( SEE VIDEO @ 10:00 )
Step 10 - As soon as you install, within a few minutes you start getting annoying pop up notifications ( SEE VIDEO @ 10:35) which is very normal so ignore that and move on with the next steps. You may see in the background that your Play Store is getting updated - Let it update - If it's not updating - No problem. ( Please give this process atleast 5 mins with patience or else you might have to do the whole thing again )
Step 11 - Now open Play Store > Download an app Device ID ( By VTechno ) ( SEE VIDEO @ 11:40 )
Step 12 - Once installed, CLEAR BACKGROUND APPS AND THEN Open Device ID app and Grant Permission > ALLOW . NOW, You will see your unique GSF-ID in the second row under Android Device ID . ( Just for your information ) ( SEE VIDEO @ 12:10 )
Step 13 - Now go to Phone Settings > Apps > and search for "Google Play Services and Uninstall it". ( SEE VIDEO @ 12:58 )
Step 14 - Now go to Files > USB Drive > Google Installations > Google Installations > Install GMS Core Mod 1 ( SEE VIDEO @ 13:38)
Step 15 - Go Back to your home screen after installation and go to Device ID . You will see the GSF ID is still there. So now its time to make it dissappear
Step : 16 - Go to Settings > Apps > On the top right, click on the three dots and enable " Show system processes " > Search for Google Services Framework > Storage > Clear Cache > Clear Data
Step 17- Now Open Device ID - You see your GSF ID must dissappear . ( SEE VIDEO @ 14:37 )
Step 18 - CLEAR BACKGROUND APPS AND Now Open Playstore > Wait for 3-5 minutes and you will get an error in Play Store. If not, then close Playstore again > Open Device ID > Then Open Playstore again > Wait for error > Like Seriously HOLD ON .( YOu might have to repeat this 2/3 times )
Step 19 - NOW IF YOU GOT THE ERROR SUCCESSFULLY ON THE PLAYSTORE APP, ITS TIME TO WAIT FOR YOUR GSF-ID TO SHOW AGAIN IN THE DEVICE ID APP. THEREFORE, OPEN DEVICE ID - CHECK - IF NO GSF ID STILL - OPEN PLAYSTORE - CLICK "RETRY" ON ERROR MESSAGE > GO BACK TO HOME SCREEN AND CLEAR ALL BACKGROUND APPS > OPEN DEVICE ID - CHECK AGAIN - AND REPEAT THE ABOVE .
Explanation to Step 19 - What we are actually doing in the above step is that we purposely cleared the cache and data from Google Services Framework in Step 18 so that the GSF-ID dissappears and Play Store stops working and gives us error message (to fix the pop up notifications ) and then we wait for the Google Services Framework to reboot and fix itself in the background and collect new data. That is why we keep closing and opening both apps. However, you need to remember, you always open Device ID first > then Playstore > Click Retry > Close all from background and then repeat until you see the GSF-ID again !
Step 20 - Once it does, your Playstore will start working and you will notice that the "ANNOYING POP UP NOTIFICATIONS" are gone ! Take your time and open Playstore and see if notifications pop up.
PLEASE NOTE : IT SHOULD NOT SHOW POP UP ERRORS ANYMORE . IF IT DOES, YOU MESSED UP STEP 18 BUT First Uninstall Google Services Framework and then install it again from USB Drive and Repeat Step 19
Step 21 - Now close the apps and clear background apps and go to Settings > Apps > Search for Google Play Services ( Not Playstore ) > Uninstall It.
Step 22 - Now go to USB Drive > Google Installations > Install File 9 ( Play services MOD 2 and restart your device without opening the playstore ) <----- Do this only if your pop up notifications stopped.
[B Congratulations ! We have now successfully completed all the steps ! ENJOY ! Install and test all google apps you want except Google Play Movies which has been disabled.
I am not the creator of this method and the files are not owned/ do not belong to me .
I will keep updating this thread as it took me many hours to compile this and format this. However, I didn't wanted to wait further to format it to perfection.
All the video notes mentioned above are from Video I - as Video II was added on later for a clearer DIY tutorial if Video I was not.
I am not doing this for any credits and this is solely for helping out fellow Huawei users like me in the community.
