I've read all the questions and answers.
Huawei p40 Pro ELS-N29
I downgraded from 11.0.0.193 to 10.1.0.131 using hisuite proxy.
I used your great tool to install GPS.
The pc didn't give option to transfer files etc when connected via USB after downgrade....
Yes I had all the settings in developer mode set up. I have upgraded back to 11.0.0.193 via ota updates pc file transfer is working again.
My question is if I restore my backup that I created before downgrading.. Will it mess up the setup and stuff.
Thanks.

Hi,
I got a Huawei Tablet M6 into my hands. There was already 11.0.0.130 installed on this device. Rollback was possible with HiSuite to 10.1.0.190.
But this is not enough for Googlefier. This needs less then 10.1.0.150. (at least it tells this to me). Ignoring this and running Googlefier results in a fail at installing the new backup software. It complaints about wrong version.
Tried to look for manual rollback but was unable to update via TeamMT (base: VRD-LGRP2 // Cust: VRD-AL10 C00).
Any hints?
Hi,
finally I managed to downgrade the MediaPad M6 Tubo 8.4 to 10.1.0.135 (2020/06/22):
After that, Googlefier was working smooth. No issues so far.

Hi guys ! I have a p40 pro build number: 11.0.0.193 (C432E3R5P3) and I cannot dowgrade in emui 10, what is the solution?

Thank you
Hi I was on 11.0.0.193
ElS NX9 c432(e3r4p3)
I downgraded using this video.
Installed Google play services, then upgraded via ota back to emui 11.0.0.193.


Be aware you will loose USB file transfer upon downgrade.
*** I had to go back up to 11.0.0.193 for file transfer to work/ however all Google services are working on latest emui 11.0.0.193 *******

Please be careful it worked fine for me. But it was a risk I was willing to take.

Is there a way to use this thing with Huawei P Smart 2021? There's literally no downgrade firmware for it for me to downgrade for Lzplay to be used. Please I need help I really can't do much without GMS. Thanks in advance. I'm on EMUI 10.1.1.182 atm.

Have you checked firmfinder? Or is 10.1.1.182 the base firmware?



I used this video to downgrade my p40pro BUT YOU LOOSE USB FILE TRANSFER UNTIL YOU UPGRADE BACK TO LATEST FIRMWARE.
all Google apps work on emui 11.0.0.193 for me
I installed Google using Googlefier

I updated it to that current firmware. The last version wasn't enough eitherway. And yes I have checked there is literally no firmware for my phone which sucks ass. It's PPAH-LGRP2 firmware which doesn't have a low enough firmware out there as far I can see.

Thank you
I did it like this with this method
because I couldn't downgrade through HiShuite.

Hi folks, I am currently owning a Huawei Nova 7 SE 5G, so while searching for a way to get native GMS installed I came across this app on Huawei App Gallery. Its only available if you change your Region to China. Basically the app lets you install an updated version of it, where you have to pay to get your bootloader unlocked to get LZplay to work. Im kinda scared to to this because I dont know if I will get OTA updates with an unlocked bootloader?

Thank you, it worked on Matepad Pro which was already EMUI 11 I was on 11.0.0.168 so obviously required downgrade.

I wasn't being offered the downgrade in HiSuite so I had to backup so I keep my app data, wipe cache and data so it's fully reset and then I got the downgrade which took me to 10.1.0.183. Not sure if I did anything wrong there, maybe that version should have worked but I got stuck on GSevices complaining it's already there.

So I took it further and downgraded to 10.1.0.120, the version you mentioned. Just that the HiSuite Proxy you offered wasn't working for me so I used the one I found on the internet, the full version. That one worked and I managed to install the Google apps and services.

Of course then I went back through the subsequent upgrades to get back to latest EMUI 11 and everything is STILL WORKING.

To recap, on Huawei P40 Pro>

- Rollback option is not available in HiSuite anymore and officially deprecated. (not supported)
- You can still downgrade/rollback using HiSuiteProxy+firmfinder / this works on all version, EMUI 10 and EMJI 11 too. If you are on EMUI 10 then you can also use dload with an USB-OTG flashdrive or nanomemory card.
- WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING: If you are on EMUI 11.0.0.193 or you have EVER been on that firmware you WILL LOSE USB CONNECTIVITY if you do any kind of downgrade! DYou will only regain your USB connectivity if you upgrade back to EMUI 11.0.0.193. The OTA client *Software update can do this for you. Or you can use dload on EMUI10 BUT only with nanomemory as USB is not working in this case.
-
It is still possible to install GMS as you can downgrade just fine, install Googlefier and upgrade back first to 10.0.0.154 then to 10.0.0.151 then to 11.0.0.193, preserving Googlefier.
- Watch out! Use the correct build and preload and cust for your device.
- YOU CANNOT USE HiSuite 10.0.0.510 anymore. The info in the first post is outdated. EMUI11.0.0.193 is incompatible with that version. @Bender007 go update that ASAP. You can use HiSuite 10.0.0.550 though.


This is fresh news and potentially affects other devices too in the P40 family.


Besides: people keep asking if there is a GMS hack available for lower-end devices such as Huawei P Smart 2021. As far as I'm aware, no and there won't be. Sorry. It does not have a firmware that is old enough to be compatible with lzplay (the basis of googlefier). Stop asking for it, it's not like there is anything that can be done about it. Go buy a P40 Lite, it isn't muh more expensive than P Smart 2021, similar specs and on that one, you can have gms.

    I have a p40 lite and have successfully added gms a few weeks back using googlefier. In order to have notifications working I freeze Google Services Framework using Ice Box. The problem is that some of the apps I want need to be installed/updated from the Play Store. So I thought well I should just unfreeze GSF to regain the Play Store but when I tried that it starts showing notifications that device is not play protect certified until I freeze GSF back. Is there any workaround or should I live with it?
    No, they don't need to be updated from the Play store. The play store will not work once GSF is frozen. You can update your apps from Aurora store which is a play store proxy basically, it uses direct links from play store. Or you can also use apkcombo

    You should just live with it. The playprotect notification spam is inevitable, it was always there, even before freezing GSF, it was just suppressed by LZPLAY but not anymore.

    Hey I have Nova 7I googlefied everything is working , for that to work I downgraded to 10.1.0.136 , but then cant update whit ota , I Will upgrade it whit Hisuite methode Proxy , but I wanted To know if the Phone will ask for DATA wipe after update , like it did when Downgraded
    If your USB is working (you can try the TypeC-TypeC cable if it doesnt work with TypeC-TypeA) then yes, you can use hisuite proxy to upgrade. Make sure you DO NOT SELECT 'ROLLBACK' firmware type as in that case it will wipe your data. However if you leave it on standard firmware type, it will be a standard upgrade and will not erase your data.

    How to check firmware on matepad t10s?
    1
    When you are installing Google services with Googlefier, do not forget to launch the LZPLAY (chinese purple G app) RIGHT after step one, before step2.

    So basically right after you restore the backup that Googlefier wants you to do, you STOP. And you launch the LZPLAY app and give it device admin rights. Then return to Googlefier and continue.
    If you do not, well the process will still go through but your GOogle apps will not work.

    Basically GMS stays in the system now matter how you upgrade afterwards. Just don't do full resets.
    This is true in the way that these apps still retain their special API access privileges (can run as system apps) which is great. It is safe to apply system updates and even update most of the google apps.

    HOWEVER
    the question was about updating one app specifically, Google Play Services. Well, that is a big NO in my opinion. Technicially it is possible but upon experimenting with it repeatedly, it seems to immediate break the Play Store and EVERYTHING related to GMS by tripping Google Play Protect... Everything would be spammed by Play protect certificate errors...

    My advice: DO NOT UPDATE Google play services. If it means you cannot use ChromeCast, then you shouldn't.

    if for any reason you really need to do this, then consider freezing Google Service Framework with Icebox to stop this Play Protect error madness. It could work in that case. But it will also break the play store and google enhanced location service... could possibly also break chromecast operations but I'm not sure on that as I cannot test it at the moment

    Hi, at first thanks for this very clear process, but I realized, this is not working with matepad 10.4 (BAH3-W09).
    I downgraded successful to 10.0.118, but lzplay is not initialized.
    After I read 20 pages of this thread, it looks like the (C432) version of matepad is not googlefiered with this method. Please, update the original post about this device to help others not spend much time with that.

    Downgrade Help






    Downgrade via usb/sd


    You NEED USB-OTG -> see the picture

    usbotg.jpg




    Prerequisites

    1. Check your firmware version(emui)
    2. Check the stats about the max supported version for Googlefier/Lzplay
    3. Download the firmware which is supported
    4. Make backup…

    Where can I find the firmware?
    -All of the firmware version that are in the download post I’ve downloaded from easy-firmware, yes I’ve paid 17$ to be able to download firmware for people, but you are welcome to get your firmware from a source which you prefer, please don’t pollute the thread with the firmware download links, there should be a separate thread for that

    transfer.png


    Method 1

    0. Make backup..seriously, this will wipe your partitions and reflash them(your files will be gone)
    1. Download your firmware
    2. In case it’s from my uploads you just extract the “dload” folder to your usb/sd
    3. Turn off your phone
    4. Hold volume up and power, until you see the recovery (or. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztobeBHh4Fk if your phone doesn’t have volume keys)
    5. Select upgrade "Memory card / OTG update mode" and that’s it, it will first verify the firmware and flash






    Note: If method 1 doesn't work, try method 2.

    For troubleshooting – see the troubleshooting section

    Method 2

    you need HiSuite 10.0.0.510 (find it and download, install it)
    1. -Open your dialer inside android
    -type *#*#2846579#*#*
    -tap on 2. "Veneer Informations"
    -tap on 1. "Version Info"
    -scroll down to "Base Software Version"
    -You will see something like "JNY-LGRP2-OVS 10.0.1.108"
    -Just ignore everything after LGRP2, means you need the "JNY-LGRP2" only
    -Type "JNY-LGRP2" or any string you find in that info - into textbox from step 1(in the hisuite proxy) and press step 1

    2. Find a suitable firmware, check that it's "FullOTA-MF" and not just OTA-MF, copy the url link next to the date, paste it into the "package url" inside the hisuite proxy
    3. Copy the text which is next to the date, on the webpage - paste it to the "firmware version" inside the hisuite proxy
    4. Press "Start proxy", connect the phone, authorize with HDB (you should know how to do that)
    5. press update in HiSuite - It will download the older firmware and install it

    Here is the image of how the procedure looks like: CLICK

    DOWNLOAD Hisuite Proxy Modified

    Note:

    IF method 1 doesn't work for you (stuck at 5%), try finding the firmware somewhere else, or do what I do

    1. find some service where you can download firmware (I use easy-firmware)
    2. pay 17$
    3. find your firmware, download it, extract using that weird ef extractor
    <- this is exactly what I do all the day when you ask me to upload you firmware

    What to check?
    1. device name
    -example ANA-NX9

    2. version
    -example C432 or C185 - just download the one for your device

    OR - try method 2 with hisuite

    Note 2

    You might be able to download the firmware using the free service here ,
    but this is something for the "method 2" for now. I will work on it to try to use the very same firmware you can download from there so you can use it with your SD or USB.
    Not promising anything, but I think it's doable - I just don't have a device ATM and I don't want to bother anyone risking a device

    Q/A



    1. What devices are supported?
    - Currently Huawei / Honor devices running Android 10 and Emui10. There are limitations based on firmware versions.

    2. Does it use LZplay(Chinese app)?
    -Yes it does. You can uninstall it after the installation is done.

    3. How do I know if it work on my device?
    -You don’t. You need to try it. IF lzplay runs on the device then it will 99% work. However there is a list where you can see some firmware versions on which it’s reported to be working.

    4. I don’t have LZplay and it still worked, how?
    -At some point, on previous firmware version – your phone had LZplay running and/or someone tried the GMS installation method. (yes, even after resetting..yes weird..)

    5. Do firebase push notifications work?
    -No they don’t, some apps will have their notifications pushed through, most of them wont.

    6. I'm getting notifications, a lot of them, what do I do?
    -Hit the fix button and follow the instructions.

    7. I've hit the FIX button, but it doesn't fix a thing. Why do you lie to us? :D
    -The fix button is there to assist you in fixing your own errors :), you didn't follow the procedure.
    -After you hit "fix", just read the instructions.
    -After EVERY single services install do this:
    *Open playstore, browse it, close playstore and all running apps from the recents menu
    *Open sync settings, uncheck-and re-check the sync on/off settings
    *Open playstore - install 2-3 apps, games...close playstore and all running apps from the recents menu
    *Proceed with button 3, just like the message box instructs (until it says everything is done)
    *still getting errors? Repeat..

    8. Does APP {insert name here} which depends on google location services/play services/games work?
    -Most probably it does, even apps like tapatalk work with the google sign in

    9. Is factory reset mandatory?
    -No, there is a button to make sure your previous experimenting is deleted

    10. Will this damage/delete my data?
    -No, this doesn’t touch your data. Although a factory reset is recommended if you want to do it right. Some people use different google replacements, aurora store, microg…etc..they mostly don’t play nicely together, there is just no guarantee it will work. A clean device will set a baseline for the installation.

    11. Some advice on the procedure?
    -always read the message boxes – they are NOT just for your amusement there, it’s very easy to miss something
    -before doing anything – do a backup
    -don’t give up on the first try
    -don’t assume the next step – there are message boxes (already told that, but..)
    -always first read the questions, then the troubleshooting – before asking a question

    12. Ok, so I successfully installed the GMS, everything works. Can I update the Apps, upgrade the system, delete Googlefier, delete LZplay, delete Google Account Manager?
    -Of course, the answer to all is YES. After the successful installation you can report the success-or a failure, just tap on “?”, it will lead you to the “YES it works”, “NO it doesn’t work” chooser. And of course, there is the donate button, which is appreciated and welcome, since a lot..lot of time is invested into this, and still being invested through the support and further investigation.
    I personally have used this services to update

    13. Will this work on my device, version 154? or Will this work on my device, version XXX ?
    -Yes and No. There are multiple factors. Depends if lzplay was at some time installed on this device - no matter what version it was on. If it was installed at for example version 106 and you made a FR, then YES you can still install even if on 154 or more recent. There is however a list of the devices that works by default and some that users report it works on.
    workingversions.PNG

    14. Can I run it on my XXXX on my YYYY version?
    -See this:
    canitrun.png


    15. It doesn't work...
    -Ok, let's try fixing it. I see some Honor users just hit the "doesn't work" button. There is still downgrade, let's look up the firmware and test it. If I could spend 2-2.5 months investigating this and then again downloading all the firmware files, extracting them, repacking and uploading them, I guess 1-2 minutes of your time isn't too much to ask?
