Did you have google apps installed through googlefier or through some other method? I have installed mine using googlefier a long time ago (8+months) and since then I upgraded just fine with every upgrade. I just received an upgrade to emui12 but decided not to install it - because I don't want to lose my google apps. How did you proceed?
Usually when you freeze GSF, Store can be opened but it canNOT download apps.
I think I am coherent with my replies. I just reply. I never suggested to freeze any of the Google apps. It was just a replay to @carbonmanx . With that app you can try to disable any apps you want.I understand, so the Google Play Services (GPS) is the culprit then.
I re-phrase: is it possible, using the app you suggested above, to prevent GPS to update itself, without prevent it from running (stopping it) ?
I noticed the Google stack will fail also if GPS is stopped/disabled.
Moreover, why did you suggest in the first instance to "freeze" GSF and not GPS ?
Could you be more coherent please with your replies ?
