i try installing GMS on my P40 (ANA-NX9, 10.1.0.121)
seems i have no chance to get rid of the google play services errors...
i tried way more than 100 times to uninstall/install google services framework (with clear cache / clear data) and unistall/install google play services (different versions from the different tutorials around), but no success...
everytime i manage to get back a google service framework ID (which is sometimes hard enough), the errors are popping back up immediately...
anybody had success with a P40 lately? i would appreciate some feedback to understand if i should keep trying or simply give up and just block notifications from google play services?

I only had success getting rid of the notifications when I downgraded from .158 to .109. I had tried before on .122 and it wasn't old enough. v109 did the trick. This was on a P40 C636. I used a file called Anna-N29CB 10.1.0.109(C636E5R4P1)_Firmware_EMUI10.1.0_05016PDB that I bought from gsmfirms for $2.

Hi all, i bought a P40 (ANA-NX9) and tried this guide with the .109 firmware but since there were many notifications related to GMS errors i've decided to unistall everything and upgrade to .184 (the lastest firmware i can install with OTA upgrades). After one day i tried to install GMS with Googlefier guide careless of the incompatibilties and.. everything work perfectly if we don't consider the "ok google" voice match and the contact sync.
For the voice match i've found an article in this forum that speaks about triggering the google voice search app with Tasker, an app made for create personalized tasks. Can this app solve the problem? I haven't tried yet, anyone have tried this already?

Sorry for my bad english

For the developers: I've reported in Googlefier app my experience, if i can be useful let me know. Thanks

I just found this video to install Google Play on HUAWEI Phones With EMUI 11/12 and HarmonyOS.

It worked like a charm, seems to be a great workaround...enjoy! :)

Yes, this is working but it's not good enough. It's not real google experience, it's a virtual desktop app, something like that, you start it (like some game) and then use something from goolge inside. For example youtube app. But that's not so important, as you can always use youtube in web browser, you don't need app for that. I tried to open Keep app and that one is not working and i wanted my notes, so i did it manually, xopy paste from Keep to Huawei notes. Also google contacts, no use opening them when you can't do anything with them. Not good enough for me, as i said. I would rather use huawei apps then this virtual environment.

Ok, i made it using this guide (someone posted link on this forum, sorry, i can't remember who and where but thank you!):


I followed the video and downgraded to EMUI 10.1.... and after that followed guide from the same video and installed google services and everything is working! BUT at the end when i started upgrading EMUI there were a few problems but same guy has the fixes and i followed them and now i'm on the latest EMUI 11.0.0.246 and all my google apps are working. The only thing that is not working is play store it self but i don't need it as i'm downloading all the apps (including google apps) from other stores, like APKPure, Huawei store and Aptoide.

Good thig is that after system update you don't loose google, and if something stops working you can aply some fix (from that same channel) and google will work again.

Just watch carefully the video in my last post, it's all explained. Follow the instructions, step by step. For Serbia it is 432 but it's very important to pay attention to the number after, for example in my phone it's 432r6, also Serbia, but i can't confirm that it will also be r6 for you, you must check that in your phone and video will take you there.

Ok, Ok.
My P40 coming to me at Tusday so do i need first to fully update it and then to follow the tutorial or just follow the tutorial after powering on?

No need to update, just follow tutorial. Just one suggestion - when you reach the part when this Bulgarian guy say that he will not talk anymore, just show what to do - i slowed down the speed of the video to x0,25 because it was too fast for me to catch everything he did at x1 speed. You'll see :)

Also, if you find it too complicated and don't need GMS right away and you can wait - soon we will get Harmony OS2 and there is one simpler tutorial for getting it, and on Harmony OS you don't need to downgrade to get GMS. So, your choice, i didn't want to wait.

Hmmm. Sounds good about HarmoniOS2, but what benefits will we get with this upgrade, but that it is related to a fully functional GMS?
I need my Addiko and Sber m-banking for Serbia apps and to restore Viber backup hard about 2-3GB from GDrive. . .

I guess everything should work, as you will have google play services and store that works. Viber restore is also working, i had some 200mb in backup and that is restored when i installed version that supports google drive backup.

I must add that i had a problem yesterday and i think it's related to my illegal use of GMS. I received google alert that my google account is disabled! And it was for a short time. All i manage to find info why - it said that i had some google policy problem and that my account can be terminated. But short after i change the password and i was able to login again to my google account on my PC but not to my phone. So from that moment i can't use GMS on the phone anymore. And since i was afraid that my account will be permanently deleted i removed everything related to GMS from my phone and now i'm just using google apps over Android Virtual machine. For example, using gmaps with no problem.

Just wanted to let you know what problem i had so be careful using GMS on phone that shouldn't have it. I plan to make new google account and to use it on my phone and old google account will be used on pc or other phones.

After more than a year using Google Services without troubles, today they got blocked on my P40: "This device isn't play protect certified". I was already in EMUI 11, with the December 2021 security patch. I did not notice any any update after that, In fact I had the update to EMUI 12 available, but I have not done it, so I have no ideia why the services suddenly got blocked.

I tried to downgrade, by following the post #49 by ivica122. I did not have any problem with the downgrade and installation, but after some moments the services got blocked again.
Ok, i made it using this guide (someone posted link on this forum, sorry, i can't remember who and where but thank you!):

I then followed this:

It unblocked the services, but I kept having constant pop-ups/notificationsto check the services.

I managed to actually fix this following this video:

I am not affiliated to any of these creators / original posters and all the credit goes to them.

I don't have any techcical knowldege of the subject, I just tried a bunch of things that I found, at my own risk. If you decide to try any of these, you are also accepting that risk to yourself. I am just sharing my experience and what worked for me, in case someone is facing the same problem and wants to try.

I don't know if all these steps are necessary. If it would happen to me again, I will probably start with the last video, since there is no need to unisntall and install anything. If it does not work, I will try the second + last video, since there is no need to reset/format the smartphone that way.

Cheers!

Hello Nunosardo and thank you for the tutorial, but your situation was fixable, you didn't have to downgrade your phone again, the same guy (i followed to install GMS) has fixes for that in this video:


Your google account wasn't disabled, just google services was disabled from your phone. If this happens again you can just follow the video i posted in this post and you will fix it without downgrading.

When (if) you receive notice that your google account is disabled, you will be cut off from your account completely, you will not be able to login to gms from any device, pc, tablet.....

So i made new google account and now i'm using that one to my phone so if google wants to close it i will not care :) will make another one :) My old google account i'm using on any other device, not on this phone, just in case.

Just one update, Huawei decided to roll out Harmony os 2 only in China and the rest of the world will get EMUI 12, so i did received this morning EMUI 12 and i can say that my GMS is still working, that didn't change because of EMUI 12.

    I recently purchased a Huawei P40 in a super offer. Most likely without this "offer you can't refuse" I would never have bought a phone without pre-installed Google services.
    After days of research and guides that never worked I found this video guide created by Stefano Nikolov in his YouTube channel which, on the contrary, works perfectly.

    This guide works with all the recent Huawei phones (P40, P40 Lite, P40 Pro, etc.) and you can add your Google Account (one or more but ONLY at the beginning of the configuration), use Google Play Store and Google Mobile Services (in Italy it works also for the Covid-19 application).

    It's very simple, it's just 10 steps and it works. I have tried it twice consecutively on my Huawei P40 and it has always brought the desired result, without those annoying Play Protect notifications that appear after following other procedures. With the addition of Customized Pixel Launcher or Lawchair you can transform your Huawei without GMS into a Pixel like phone.



    What is not working:
    - The device is still uncertified (I tried to manually add the Framework ID but it doesn't work)
    - Google Assistant cannot be activated by voice ("Ehy Google" cannot be enabled)
    - Google Duo SMS activation doesn't work (you cannot use Google Duo)
    - Google Contacts app cannot create new contact on Google account (official Huawei Contacts app will work for this, so don't use Google Contacts app)

    Here is the video guide:

    @noppy22 I'm sorry to disturb you, is it possible to cross-post on the P40 Pro and P40 Lite forums or do I have to create two more threads? Thanks.
    There isn't any way to cross-post as AFAIK. You would have to copy-paste in each discussion forum.

    The tutorial will be updated because i think Google blocked the login

    lots of new videos on the youtube say there's a fix, e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAxj0FYgwoY

    I might give it a go soon.
