Hi! So I'm new here and followed the instructions via
.. Everything worked out fine until I started updating EMUI above 11.
I'm feeling all the files, what were made for lower version wont work at newer update like was guessed at the end of the video. I'm guessing its already been solved, but I cant find answers from anywhere - could you nudge me kindly into right direction? :)
I went to 10... like in the video, got google to work and then back to 11. Play Protect error now...
Thanks in advance!

It is up to the firmware version that is installed on your phone.
If a downgrade is necessary you have all you need here:

Provide more details about your phone to receive specific guidance.

Thanks. I managed to get everything working, but notifications arent working. I see there are couple of solutions, but I'm not sure are they relevant to me (its shown, there is still problem with google protect, but I dont have atm). Which one would you recommend to do? - All working 100%, Store, apps, etc, except no notifications are coming through tho...

Hi,
today my phone crashed and I found it stuck, trying to boot, on the "huawei" logo.

I long-pressed the power button and rebooted it, entered the pin for the SIM, then it asked me as usual for the device pin (6 digits).
My code - I am 100% sure of it, never changed it! - did not work, I got the "wrong pin inserted" message.

Reading on the internet, this could be caused by some (automatic?) update that changed or broke my pin.

Any idea how to solve that, apart from trying factory reset? :(
Has this happened to anyone? Could it be related to the installation of google apps?

Thanks a lot.

I never heard about this before. I dont think is related to GMS.

Thank you very much for your reply.

I factory reset my Huawei P40 Lite.
It appears it (automagically? :( ) updated to the latest EMUI version, now running
10.1.0.364 (C432E1R2P1)

Do you think this could be the cause?
Can I try Googlifier now or do I have to downgrade?

Tx a lot.
I deleted all I wrote. Now I can see you have Lite.
Post here a screenshot of About Phone.

You have to downgrade to 10.0.1.136.
This is what I did, but it worked only for a few weeks until now (until it automatically updated to10.1.0.364 apparently)...

Do you think I can downgrade again, do the Googlifer, then update to 10.1.0.364?
Or is there any other method working on 10.1.0.364?

I am scared the device will try to update again from 10.0.1.136 to 10.1.0.364 and break the pin again.
(Please note: my mum is using the device and she is not tech-savvy, maybe she did the OS update and I don't want this to happen again...)

Tx a lot.

1. Downgrade (dont set a PIN)
2.Install GMS
3.Upgrade OTA
4. Install Push notification fix (PM me)
5. Set the PIN if it is needed.
6.Block EMUI Updates ( let me know if you want this)

or

1. Downgrade (dont set a PIN)
2.Install GMS
3.Block EMUI Updates ( let me know if you want this)
4. Set the PIN if it is needed.

Hi,
I like the second solution.
How can "3.Block EMUI Updates ( let me know if you want this)" be done? Can it be reactived afterwards or is it a final decision?

Tx a lot!

My device
Device name: HUAWEI P40 lite
Model JNY-LX1

Initially
Build number: 10.1.0.364 (C432E2R5P1) GPU Turbo
EMUI version: 10.1.0
Android Version 10
Security patch level: October 1,2021

I successfully downgraded via sd card to
Build number: 10.0.1.136 (C432E2R2P1) GPU Turbo
EMUI version: 10.0.1
Android Version 10
Security patch level: February 1,2020

I started with installing Googlefier and the install went ok but play store never opened
Apparently the uninstall of microG in the Googlefier steps kept deleting my google account.
I then tried RDTVGMS method which does not uninstall microG but still playstore crashes on start
In addition in sync settings I dont see the slider to enable contacts sync even though "Auto-sync data" is checked.
I tried contact sync 4.4.4-1227136 without success
Ross files dont seem to help as well

At present Playstore just show blank white screen for a few seconds before crashing out without any error messages.
I have enabled all permission for all gms app withouts any changes

Any help will be most appreciated.

    On HiSuite proxy you can choose from R4 to R6 ( here).

    @Eini666 and @badmania98 you glorious bastards.
    EMUI downgraded to 10.1.0.121

    About to install Googlifier.

    As usual, you guys find yourselves in Prague beers on me <3
    All thanks should go to to @badmania98 I only had to downgrade and install GMS 3 days ago, so I just read the entire guide and I still remember what and how.

    Hello everybody!
    I'm here to thank @badmania98 for helping with installing notifications for GMS services for a Huawei P40 pro.
    I downgraded from EMUI 12 following the steps described on this thred. I also had a weird problem (maybe others had it) - downgrade to EMUI 10 via OTG connection from a 64gb Kingston stick didn't work - the stick was formatted correctly. It was solved by using another older 8gb stick.
    After installing the GMS services, I contacted @badmania98 who was willing to help me the same evening - the process took an hour or so, during which time thousands of steps were taken - I consider the price for the service more than fair.
    Very good communication and the best result!

    Hello there,

    I am having a bit of an issue here, maybe you can help me out.
    I had EMUI 12 - Huawei P40 Pro (factory reset) and I downloaded latest official HiSuite to downgrade to EMUI 11.

    So my info was:
    Build version: 11.0.0.249
    Model: ELS-N29
    Region: C185
    R number: R4

    Edit 1.0:
    Followed your instructions and I downloaded a DLOAD file provided by you for version 11.0.0.230 (used your C432 instead of C185) (C432E3R6P4) and now my phone info reads:

    Build: 11.0.0.230 (C185E6R4P4). There was no change in region it seems?

    THE (UPDATED) ISSUE
    I am unable to use HiSuite or OTG method for whatever reason to downgrade to EMUI 10 to install Googlifier.

    A) I tried using HiSuite Proxy for ELS-N29 C184 (R4) to roll-back to 10.1.0.114 and 10.1.0.131 both. But soon as the files are 100% downloaded I get error "Failed to update"

    B) I downloaded DLOAD for 10.1.0.131 (from your old post) --> Elsa-N29D 10.1.0.131(C185E9R4P1). But when I try to install from recovery mode I am getting: "Software install failed: incompatibility with current version)

    Please tell me what am i doing wrong here, I spent all day reading and re-reading your instructions not to be lazy but i'm hitting a wall for whatever reason....
    Which hisuite version are you using to downgrade ? Latest version V11.0.0.610 you need only do downgrade from emui 12 to latest version od emui 11 and to have latest version hisuite app on the phone.
    After that you need to uninstall hisuite from computer and install 10.1.0.550_OVE-BUN but only on computer with no upgrades of firmware in phone and computer.
    Hisuite Proxy and Hisuite 10.1.0.550 will give you possibility to downgrade from 11.0.0.230 to 11.0.0.121

    Hello!

    Because I answered to the same questions on different threads, I decided to create this thread, where I will provide my experience to you, in one place.

    The followings messages (2-7) contain all major info and tutorials links from this thread.

    All solutions/tutorials are related to the EMUI version that is installed on your phone. Before you start using this phone and upgrade/downgrade the firmware, I suggest you to read this message and after that you can continue reading the thread.


    I am waiting for your questions. I hope that I can help. I will not answer again if I already answered and you haven't read first 7 messages of this thread. I don't like people who are more lazy than I am. :devilish:

    My Phone: P40 Pro C432 EMUI12, push notification fix installed.

    Best regards,
    Daniel

    LE: My support on XDA is free of charge. I will provide/mention free solutions. If you find something interesting on my messages you can provide a Like.
    On PM/Telegram I could provide different solutions that could be not free of charge.

    6. The transfer files between Computer and phone is available on the downgraded firmware (10.1.x.x) when you use a certain USB-c to USB-c cable.

In the same time, using the original USB cable or other ordinary USB-c to USB-C cable have not activated the file transfer.
    Harmony TP cable works also, in case your computer/laptop doesn't have USB-C port. You can build/make one (search the procedure on YouTube).

    Hello everyone,

    I want to share my experience here.

    I posted earlier a problem on xda "Can't downgrade P40 Pro ELS-N29 C432 from 11.0.0.260 to 10.1.0.131"

    I tired many solution for several days and nothing worked!
    Then I contacted badmania98 and he gave me the right and only solution to downgrade my P40 Pro from 11.0.0.260 to EMUI 10.
    He provided me with the corresponding links and gave me a step by step procedure, shown in pictures that are highlighted by numbers..
    " 1. Press this 2. insert that 3. etc... " and then he doubled check my work before I proceeded in Hisuite Proxy to make sure that the filled info about base, Cust, Preload and the software are 100% accurate.
    I was able to downgrade my P40 Pro to EMUI 10 😁

    Now here's the best part: He gave a private service and installed GSM on my phone using TeamViewer. He used his own files to install GSM on my phone... This service allowed me to have Google Push notifications working on my phone without disabling the Google Play Store 😁
    Google service is working, maps, push notifications, everything related to Google is working now as if this phone originally had Google Pre-Installed in it 😁

    It was a great service!

    Thank you so much
