Greetings,

Actually i own Nova 2s, but i'll just share it here because no specific forum for Nova 2s.

After a few days scratching head and crying loud trying to find out why when i open Google Play Store it's just stuck on circular loading screen, i finally came down to the solution.
For all of you who think it's maybe ROM's fault, it's not.
It's pure GApps' fault, specifically it's com.google.android.gms A.K.A Google Play Services.
Not long ago, you can find an app named GMS Installer in HiApp market, and Huawei decided to trash it, so that's why you can't find it anymore in HiApp market.
GMS Installer is the solution for this issue.

Download the GMS Installer and install the APK, open the app, and press One Touch Installation, your device will automatically reboot and automatically install Google Play Services in Huawei eRecovery.
After your device booting back into system, check in Apps if the Google Play Services installed correctly.
After that, you can download the rest from APKMirror : Google Account Manager, Google Calendar Sync, Google Contacts Sync, Google Play Store, and Google Services Framework. Keep in mind you should download version that fit to your android version.
You can even update the Google Play Services to the latest version using the apk's from APKMirror, don't worry it will works.
That's it!

Just tried this on a Nova 2 Plus which was upgraded to Oreo and had problems not accessing anything Google. I can confirm that it works.... But for some reason Google Services Framework from apkmirror would not install. Otherwise, so far so good.

please try again and follow the instructions properly.

maybe you're downloading wrong version of Google Services Framework?

I just tried with installing GMS installer, and then switching to Chinese AppGallery market, and installing the official Play Store app. Then just install and update everything from Play Store, and voilà.:good:

I had the same issue, the hiApp or some security app blocked me to install the GMSInstaller because it was flaged as dangerous. You can install it from a computer via ADB
I suggest you to download minimal ADB Tool https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2317790
Then copy the GMSInstaller to the ADB folder

Then in the device under development options > Debugging, uncheck the option "Verify apps over USB" that will allow ADB to install apps without a promtp.

Connect the device to the PC and grant debugging permission when asked

Just use adb install package.apk where package is the name of the GMS installer you have

---------- Post added at 06:34 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:29 PM ----------

I've already installed GMS and stuff, but i have a problem, some apps are not available for installation from Google Play Store.

If i try to install the APK manually i get this message:

"The installation package uses a shared directory that does not exist" and the app wont install.

If i try to install via ADB i get this message in the ADB console:

"[apppackage] requires unavailable shared library com.google.android.maps; failing!"

i get this errors with some apps, and i dont know how to solve this

That's a problem with every Chinese variant of phones, phones sold in China are not allowed to have Google services, not the phones fault it's the Chinese government. You can sideload "usually" but on some devices it may be blocked by the firmware. If you don't have success sideloading the APK packages you may have to go rebranding to a European or international variant.
