So I guess I'm having the same problems as others. Since yesterday I'm getting play protect errors on google apps. Is fixing this going to require a full wipe/reset or can it be done non destructively?
I've attached the errors and versions. The phone has been great for over a year since I first put google on it.
Happy for any help!!

I have tried force closing, clearing cache etc but the problem returns immediately.

In my opinion it is a problem with Google Play services version. It is new version, and Google made changes on it that provide errors on our phones.
It is NOT needed to downgrade and re-install GMS. You can try one of solutions presented here (V1-V4):

If none works, let me know in private.

Downgrade in one step from the last version of EMUI, to install GMS ( P40Pro C432 with EMUI version (is lower than) < 11.0.0.260):

This method should be used just in case a downgrade from original HiSuite is not possible/available.



You have to follow the below tutorial + next remarks:
a. uninstall your original HiSuite from computer and phone;

b1 install attached HiSuite 11 on computer and connect the phone to computer. HiSuite app will be installed on the phone. Do not upgrade HiSuite. It will ask for it.;
b.2 Disconnect phone from computer and uninstall HiSuite11 from computer (only). Do not touch HiSuite app from phone.
b.3 install attached HiSuite10 on computer. Do not connect the phone to computer. Do not upgrade HiSuite. It will ask for it. Phone will be connected to computer just after you already set attached Proxy app and start HiSuite 10 on the phone.

c. you should have free space on your computer for download the needed files( minimum 6-8 GB free on partition C:, NTFS format);

d. your phone must have the battery charged 100%;

e. after downgrade you will lose Fast Charge and connection to computer via USB cable;

f. after you install GMS, upgrade Over the Air (from phone menu) several times to the last version of EMUI, where you will get back Fast Charge and connection to computer via USB cable;

g. Pay attention to the files that you use/download from https://www.firmfinder.ml/ or https://professorjtj.github.io/
In this tutorial it is presented just a case. Do not use the same files for every phone model or region. I can help you to choose the right files. Just let me know.

h. Dont downgrade to an intermediate firmware version.

i. HiSuite 10.1.0.550 = is no red icon on the desktop. Red icon is on HiSuite11 only. After you press setup you will start HiSuite10 from original icon.

On P40 Pro C432 use 10.1.0.121.


A video tutorial just to know how to work with this apps: here. You have to follow my written tutorial.

Hi guys and girls.

I downgraded to 10.1.0.131 to install GMS, then upgraded to 10.1.0.176 (C432E7R4P1) and I can't upgrade further. "Your software is up to date". I lost PC connectivity, so HiSuite and HiSuite Proxy isn't an option for me. eRecovery also doesn't work - "Get package info failed".

Firmware finder app also not helping, "Most likely the firmware was removed from the server".

Please help me to get it to EMUI 11 to get back fast charging and PC connectivity. At this point I stopped caring for GMS, I'll just use the phone as is for a few months and then get something with Google Certification.

I've got a 256GB USB and a OTG USB-A to USB-C cable.

I found this page, but I'm not sure if I can use P40 Pro+ FW on my P40 Pro: http://huawei-firmware.com/?q=els-&load_page=search&page=1

Try to go through Support app from app gallery (or My Huawei if you updated it). There is Support tab, scroll down and click More > its bit hidden, you have to scroll down a bit on right part of screen. Pick Update (bottom left, I have it translated so not sure if it is called that in eng version) and try to update that way. It usually works...

I forgot to mention that I also tried that, but to no success. It just brings me to the standard software update in the settings and says that I'm up to date. Thanks for the tip though!

Hey man, first of all thank you for supporting people like this, means a lot really (I know how frustrating it can get after trying 100 times and no results)

I had everything working fine until few days ago when I reset my google account password because I am an idiot...

For whatever reason I did a factory reset on my phone, now I have:
Huawei P40 Pro
ELS-NX9
Build: 11.0.0.234 (C185E6R4P4)

I successfully downgraded to correct build in the past and managed to run Google services with no issues but for whatever reason I am now getting following error when trying to revert to needed build with OTG Update method:

"Software install failed!
Incompatability with current vesion.
Please download the correct update package."

In the past I definitely used one of the links from this thread (actually provided by you): https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...4V_ut02SdmbSVOsT5sMLAWUiOJio1t5JD5gZ_WraGNhNk

I also tried to get from this repository (uploaded by starbase64)

I do not know what to do anymore, it has reached the point where I can't access some very sensitive information due to absence of apps... Please tell me what I can do or how I can get Google apps back... I would be really grateful

There is a tutorial for resetting your Google account, in case you change your passwords ...
There was no need for a reset.
Next time ask before doing nonsense.
Maybe our mate @ badmania98 will be able to fix you ...
This is the method (for next time):

I agree 100%

Also @badmania98 you beautiful bastard I DID it!!!! I finally did it following one of your videos! I used HiSuite method instead but I see supercharging option is now lost. I recall seeing somewhere here that we can fix that too, any pointers?

What I am asking is, do I need to update the phone now automatically or manually to get the supercharger back?

    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.


    1. How to solve wrong downgrade+fix USB connection to computer (P40Pro+ firmware on P40 Pro / N39 on N29)
    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.

In the same time, using the original USB cable or other ordinary USB-c to USB-C cable have not activated the file transfer.

    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.
