and don't take it bad from me just 2 days of research and stress and I'm very sorry if was rude or anything
and thank you very much for all your posts and efforts god bless you
Think twice before buy something. If you count on the phone+GMS for the work, it is better to buy another phone with GMS out the box. It is possible to have many problems with GMS installed on P40 Pro: no notifications, play protect errors, apps that can not work, etc.

Here are my steps by which I successfully installed google services with several days of hard work!

  1. CHANGE IP ADRRESS TO JAPAN WITH PROTON VPN
  2. DOWNGRADE 12.0.0.218 TO 11.0.0.260 WITH HISUITE 11.0.0.590 (newest HiSuite) WITHOUT PROXY
  3. DOWNLOAD WITH DLOAD TO USB (LINK) AND DOWNGRADE TO 11.0.0.230
  4. FROM VERSION 11.0.0.230 TO 10.1.0.121 WITH HISUIT PROXY AND HiSuite 11.0.0.510.
  5. FOR HISUIT PROXY USE FILES FROM (LINK) FOR YOUR HUAWEI VERSION
  6. FOLLOW TUTORIAL FOR INSTALL GOOGLE SERVICE: (Tutorial HIER)
  7. FIX - "This Device Isn't Play Protect Certified" Error By Google Play Services For Huawei! (Tutorial hier)
  8. UPDATE AGAIN TO NEWEST VERSION (FROM 10.1.0.121 TO 12.0.0.218) WITH OTA

(!!!DON'T DO FACTORY RESET NEVER!!!)

If you want to thank me for your financial support, you can do so HERE.

HOW TO flash dload FW guide (downgrade or upgrade EMUI)

„USING OTG ADAPTER or OTG CABLE + USB MEMORY STICK


1. Extract dload folder from downloaded archive and copy it to the root of your memory stick / drive >=8gb (formatted as NTFS) that will be used to upgrade.

DLOAD folder contains:
- a zip file ( Example: update_sd_base.zip)
- a folder (example ELS-N29_hw_eu) with 2 zip files inside (example: update_sd_cust_ELS-N29_hw_eu.zip and update_sd_preload_ELS-N29_hw_eu_R5.zip)

2. BACKUP your stuffs if you haven't done yet

3. Factory Reset your phone (optional) and POWER it OFF

4. Insert your OTG + memory stick / drive with the correct firmware on it (dload folder with all 3 zips inside)

5. Press Power button AND VOLUME + and as it vibrates and shows Huawei + Android logo WAIT FOR 5-6 seconds and release buttons, and the phone will enter in eRecovery mode. When in menu, select Update mode, then select Memory card/OTG update mode and it should start the update.

USING Huawei NM Card

1. Extract dload folder from downloaded archive above (dload folder with all 3 zips inside) and copy to your Huawei NM Card

2. BACKUP your stuffs if you haven't done yet

3. Factory Reset your phone (optional) and POWER it OFF

4. Press Power button AND vOLUME + and as it vibrates and shows Huawei + Android logo WAIT FOR 5-6 seconds and release buttons, and the phone will enter in eRecovery mode. When in menu, select Update mode, then select Memory card/OTG update mode and it should start the update.

OR

If you want to do it from sistem after you've made your backup and had an factory reset (optional), insert OTG + memory stick / drive OR copy dload folder with all 3 zips inside to your Huawei NM Card and dial this on dialer *#*#2846579#*#* and select 4.Software Update then 1.Memory card Upgrade . If your inserted card / memory stick or USB drive or Huawei NM Card it's recognised and contains the right files, phone will restart and start flashing the firmware. At the end when it's restarting after succesfully flashed firmware, you can remove the OTG (if you used one).

How to check for update using eRecovery:

In order to acces eRecovery (using this method in order to update WON'T wipe your phone data, it's acting like an normal OTA), follow these steps:
1. Power OFF your device
2. Press Power button AND vOLUME + and as it vibrates and shows Huawei + Android logo WAIT FOR 5-6 seconds and release buttons, and the phone will enter in eRecovery mode. When in menu, select Update mode, then select Memory card/OTG update mode and it should start the update.
3. When in menu, select Update mode, then select eRecovery mode then Update and recover system then Download update and recover. Connect it to Wi-Fi and it should start the update. If it's still the version you're atm, you can hit Cancel and then Restart. If it's a newer version than the one installed, let it download and update. At the end, it will restart to system.„

Thanks to @SilviuO

I think your firmware can not be downgraded with HiSuite proxy from this version. This is the newest version for your phone? If yes, maybe a dload downgrade method is necessary first.

for dload i need usb stick right? i will try to use method 5 am i right?
Yes. It is described at ”method 5”.
You need:
- dload firmware for your phone/region
ex: Huawei P40 lite (Nova 7i) JNY-LX1 JNY-L21 hw eu Jenny-L21A 10.1.0.353(C432E1R6P1) OR
Huawei P40 lite (Nova 7i) JNY-LX1 JNY-L21 hw eu Jenny-L21A 10.1.0.364(C432E1R6P1)
- USB stick + OTG adaptor or NM card. It shoud work also with Memory card+ Card Reader+ OTG adaptor

After that you can go to a lower firmware (10.0.1.136) with HiSuite Proxy to install GMS.

Alright, I followed badmania98's guide and I succesfully downgraded my Mate 30 Pro from 12.0.0.226 to 10.0.0.154!!
I then installed GMS with Googlefier and I have no Play protect errors or Google Play Services error.
How to install latest google play services AND disable from auto updating?
Also if the Play services get updated how can we revert to working version?
I am sorry but inspite of badmania98 and the other guys' work, the thing is a mess and it's really confusing...!

Tudo bem, eu segui o guia da Badmania98 e eu rebaixei com sucesso meu Mate 30 Pro de 12.0.0.226 para 10.0.0.154!!
Então instalei o GMS com o Googlefier e não tenho erros de proteção do Play ou erro do Google Play Services.
Como instalar os serviços mais recentes do Google Play e desativar a partir da atualização automática?
Além disso, se os serviços Play forem atualizados, como podemos reverter para a versão de trabalho?
Sinto muito, mas inspite de badmania98 e o trabalho dos outros caras, a coisa é uma bagunça e é realmente confuso...!









hello friend, I have the same firmware as your 12.0.0.226, you went straight to 10.... via Hsuite or Dload? Thanks

Not straight through..
1. Downgrade with latest HiSuite (590) with vpn Japan server to 11.0.0.230
2. Then you downgrade with DLOAD method through USB-OTG to 11.0.0.220 (badmania98 has made a mention about where to get the files)
3. Downgrade to 10.0.0.154 with old HiSuite (510) and HiSuite Proxy as described in first posts
Done...!

    It is not important to me. After that, I use my (paid) procedure to fix any errors. For you...I dont know.

    LE: I never installed GMS with googlefier.
    Successfully installed GMS and upgraded EMUI to latest version and fixed some issues mentioned in previous comments. For now it works without any problems, updated also GMS to 21.24.56. Also Android Auto works now after requested app update.
    Thank you @badmania98 for your help and clear instructions for every issue.

    Hi badmania98,
    Thanks for your thread - a lot of great info here. Currently I'm on 12.0.0.246(C432E3R4P5) and I'm thinkg about downgrade to the oldest firmware that was ever released (I guess it's ELS-LGRP4-OVS 10.1.0.114), install GMS and update through OTA.

    I can use Chimera Mobile Phone Utility or SigmaKey (have you heard about them?) to allow downgrade by the "Disable FW version and compatibility check (enable downgrade) function under "Modify Oeminfo" tab. Didn't try that yet but I'm desprate to install Google Services on my P40 PRO.

    I read many of your posts but still have some questions:
    1. Which is the best method to install GMS on 10.1.0.114?
    2. Can I update through OTA to the newest EMUI12 build or should I stop at some point?
    1
    yes, i find only in this payed sites. but i dont trust them...
    OK. I did. It was no problem.

    Google search for ”Google Play store apk” or go to www.apkmirror.com and search for Google Play Store.

    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.

    IF YOU HAVE GMS ERRORS
    DO NOT RESET THE PHONE TO FACTORY SETTINGS AND DO NOT MAKE EMUI DOWNGRADE

    0. 20220315: Downgrade from EMUI12 is working with HiSuite 11.0.0.610.

    For P40 Pro C432, to downgrade:

    a. from stable EMUI12 12.0.0.218/228 to EMUI11 11.0.0.260 ( P40Pro C432), use the newest original version of HiSuite. At this moment is HiSuite_11.0.0.610_OVE. No proxy has been used.

    b. from ELS-LGRP4-OVS 11.0.0.260 to EMUI11 11.0.0.230 ( P40Pro C432) you can downgrade using the solution described here.

    Here is my guide: - here.


    2. EMUI downgrade procedure chart - here.

    3. from EMUI version
    <11.0.0.260 to EMUI10.1.121( P40Pro C432) EMUI downgrade tutorial - one step : here The procedure is the same for all Huawei phones and regions. You have to use the specific files for every region and phone type. Ask on thread if you dont know what files you need.

    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

    Google Suite Install/Errors etc. ( Play store, Google Play Services, Google Account, etc.)

    IF YOU HAVE GMS ERRORS
    DO NOT RESET THE PHONE TO FACTORY SETTINGS AND DO NOT MAKE EMUI DOWNGRADE

    1. Play store error
    a. It can be opened but cannot be used

    If you receive just this message try Clear Cache of Google Play Store + Force stop, then start Store again. Do not clear data.

    Screenshot_20211013_113641_com.android.vending.jpg

    b. 20211113 Errors: If the previous doesn't work try this (read below first).
    1. V1 - EloYGomeZTv
    2. V2 - Renz Dagz TV ,
    3. V3 -System Hacks
    4. V4 - GSM Fix/ ictfix

    Many phones with GMS installed have now ( since 20211113) that error message when you open Google Apps. Many of you think that a downgrade of EMUI and a reinstall of GMS is needed. No EMUI downgrade is needed. In previous links (V1-V4) you will find 4 solutions to have a GMS working. Unfortunately they use old versions of Google Play Services. The newest version is used in V1. Some apps (Android Auto, etc.) will need a newer versions of Google Play Services than those presented in tutorials. I tried different solutions and files and I have to say that the last version of working Play Services is:
    - for MateXS: 21.15.13
    - other phones: 21.24.56
    Using a newer version will get the error.
    Also a simple clear data/force stop/update or other changes made on Google Play Services file could get future errors.

    c. The fix A.3 from here solves all this problems and solves also many incompatibilities.
    My phone has not been affected: Demo

    2. Change/add Google account/password after GMS install - files in description: Tutorial - EloYGomeZTv

    3. Googlefier on 2022 - solve step 1 error : here.

    4. I used this method to install GMS: here.
    You can use any other method. YouTube is full of them. One of them is Googlefier.

    5. A new alternative to install GMS here.. In video it is used on HarmonyOS 2.0 phone, but I think it might work on EMUI10 (that allows GMS install) too. It seems to be more simple than Googlefier and it has fixed also te year 2022 bug of Googlefier.
    4
    I have to mention that on the @MiszczOszczy44 I have installed the most advanced push notification fix (paid version). This procedure will fix push notifications and other/many incompatibilities.
