Hello friends, here is something I found to solve the lack of Google Play Services in modern Huawei devices. Credits go to the developer, not me, and to the original MicroG developers, I just want to share this solution to help people having the same issue.

MicroG is an open source software replacement for Google Play Services, and it requires root, Magisk, Xposed or in-built signature spoofing patch to work, but not this time.

I used this method as soon as I found it, since both of my parents got a Huawei P40 Lite E, and I couldn't use Googlefier because of the updated firmware.

No need of virtualized environments like GSpace, Gbox and other similar methods, now you can simply login into your Google Account without the need of installing other packages.

This solution is based on the YouTube Vanced-dedicated derivative of MicroG, called Vanced MicroG indeed, and it requires no root and no other packages to work.

Simply install this app, called GMSCoreHuawei (don't use the "unpatched" version, but the HUAWEI one), then Play Store apk from official sources like ApkMirror:


Login in MicroG using the Huawei button, give the necessary MicroG permissions for notifications and you're done :)

I didn't test on other devices, but I think also other De-Googlefied ones or users with problems in installing MicroG using other methods can manage to use this solution.

I tested Play Store downloads and Google Maps and some apps like Gboard or Opera browser requiring GMS to work fine, and I got no problems so far.

Maybe the developer of this version of MicroG will see this thread and further update this app to match official MicroG progress.

Thanks to him again for the amazing job, which will save much time and efforts to many users wanting to enable the Google ecosystem on their devices.

The developer discontinued further work on this project because it did not allow access to personalized functional gapps. He abandoned this project in his github page. Yes some Google and Android apps work regardless of GMS authenticity like maps or Chrome. I can confirm that this method will not work in harmony os mate Xs2.

I couldn't get this work on my P40 5G.
I am able to login inside the microg app but asks login again in the playstore.
Can you please specify how did you manage to get it working and which particular version of the microG app did you use ?
I used Patched v0.2.22.212658 on Emui 12

Hi, my experience is on EMUI 10 and I used this apk:


I logged in using the HUAWEI button, gave ALL the required permissions in MicroG settings and then Play Store apk downloaded from Apkmirror worked without issues, and so Maps and other Google apps.

There are some 3rd party apps still not recognizing it as a replacement of GMS, but I can manage that.

If the apk or other versions don't work for you, you can still try an older MicroG variant built from EloyGomez, here the source code:


I also used that once, it works in the same way and successfully, I remember having discovered it casually in a YouTube video and also I've seen it in Android Hilfe forum (translate button necessary).

Alternatively, you can try this method using regular MicroG, but I don't know if it's still working and it's not tested by me:

Let me know how it goes.

I assumed you might be on Emui 11 or 12 since the device is P40 lite. I know those MicroG forks and googlefier work on Emui 10 and I do not want to downgrade my firmware.
Recently there is new microG fork called 'lighthouse' which is currently only available for Huawei Malaysia region and support Emui 12.
Since I saw this I been looking around internet to see someone else has figured out a way for GMS services to work on newer Huawei devices.
The lighthouse app seems working like a native gms and people are loving it on their new mate50 devices.

I am afraid of the firmware downgrade for Emui 12 to 11 and then to 10 since it can cause some update issues and risk of device bricking.
If you have done the downgrade and seems it was easy work, would you mind sharing the methods you followed ?
Thank you so much in advance

The Huawei phone I worked with is a P40 Lite E, not P40 Lite, and Huawei didn't update it further than EMUI 10 but simply patched it so it no longer can use Googlefier, and i didn't downgrade the device to EMUI 9 (yet).

Anyway, I found some time ago on YouTube an older version of Huawei HiSuite still letting me use the downgrade/rollback option, as long as it is not updated.

Backup everything first, if you want to try, maybe that option is applicable for you also.
Let me know about it if you do it.

I'll attach the file here (unzip it once downloaded), because I can't remember the video, I found it some months ago and downloaded the file right away.

I'll edit or delete the post in case some moderator tells me it's not allowed.

I downloaded the exe and will try it after backing up everything
I will definitely keep you updated if that works for me.

Hi, I cannot be of much help in this case since I do not have a device shipping with Harmony OS, but I think this video can be somewhat useful, let me know if you're successful in case you decide to try this method:

@crcblz you can also try this, if you want, I'm pretty sure there's Private Space option also in Harmony OS (I would have used this guide, but the Lite E device doesn't support Private Space at all).
