Hei! If some tech savvy can help, it wouldould be highly appreciated! I failed till now to downgrade my Huawei P40 with HISuite! So, I got an OTG to go it! The reason of course, is Googlefier!

After I read about many people bricking the phone, I thought to ask here, to minimize these possibilities.

Details of the phone:

Phone: Huawei P40
Model: ANA-NX9
EMUI version: 11.0.0
Build number: 11.0.0.196 (C432ER4P3)
GPU Turbo
Base Software Version:
ANA-LGRP4-OVS 11.0.0.196
Cust Software Version:
ANA-N29-CUST 11.0.0.5(C432)
Preload version:
ANA-N29-PRELOAD 11.0.0.3(C432R4)

I got the HISuite 10.0 Silviu and the proxy for HISuite. I went to update to previous version, I could download (the first step) with HISuite (some versions of firmware) on PC, but then it failed to update!

After I checked on internet, I read somewhere that P40 came with 10.1, so my mistake was that I downloaded the wrong versions as they were 10.0 versions? But they were supposed for P40 and they matched the criteria.

Now, I want to try with OTG. I'm thinking to download one of these versions that are for my phone. Which firmware would you suggest? To minimise possibilities of bricking my phone.

Any other suggestion also about what and how to do the downgrade, is highly appreciated!

On an update on my previous message, I tried to update with OTG and use the C432 file version 10.1.0.131 and it said it incompatibility with the current version and download the right package... 🤷

@bender_007 is there any advice? I really really need the GMS for my son and would pay anything to fix this!

I bought a NM, but I still can't pass the dload folder, it's too heavy for pass i think that the card is a fat32. I also have a p30 pro do you have any other ideas?
Last I night I worked with a NM card to downgrade. The owner made a wrong downgrade at 10.1.0.176 ( it should be 131 or 121) to install Google and the phone was stuck on that version. I could write dload firmware on NM card without do something else (format, etc). It worked to downgrade, install Google (not using Googlefier), fix the push notification and update the EMUI to the last version to have back the USB connection to Computer and fast charge. The owner was happy after 3-4 hours of work at distance (Romania-UK).

I think I know what is wrong.
Try this:
1. On the computer copy the dload folder in the root of C:\ or D:\ ( it will be C:\dload or D:\dload)
2. Connect your phone to computer (NM card insterted on the phone)
3. Copy Dload folder from C:\ or D:\ to NM card root.

Just use Google Space, it is much simpler (a normal app that you can install and has play store + support for apps with GMS APIs) and supports almost everything. My advice - don't mess with this downgrade thing, it is starting to become dangerous if you ever went above version 11.0.0.189. The USB issue is just one we observed, what if there is, or there will be something else too..

Ok! As it looks like, both the HISuite for downgrade and Googlefier, were not working for my P40! I don't suggest Googlefier for everyone has my version of phone, it will just not work.

Downgrade was actually the easier of these parts (downgrade, Google Store/services, push notifications etc). Googlefier did not work after for P40, despite I did perfectly each step.

Thankfully, @badmania98 via TeamViewer took care also if it and Google Store/services were installed with another method. And after he continued with the push notifications, bugs, etc.

It took some time, but Google Store on my phone now, looks like working perfectly! 🙏

Please help!!

After installing the Hi Suite (510) I'm unable to complete this step. When opening the Hi Suite app it installed onto my phone I get a pop up saying it requires the location permission although it isn't something I can grant so I'm not able to get the 8 digit code. Am I missing something?

Uninstall HiSuite from computer and phone. Install it again carefully.

    I bought a new P40 Pro from Amazon with 10.1.0.176 firmware. I successfully downgraded to 10.1.0.131 and installed Google Play. However, I have several issues with the installed apps.

    • Chrome, Youtube & Google Pay (not Play) always crash after tapping on the app.
    • Google Maps half of the time crashes.
    • Uber cannot link to an internal map.
    • Facebook, Instagram & Twitter seem work so fay (day 1 only)
    • I installed two bank apps. They work somehow, but buggy. Sometimes it crashes and some other time the screen/button doesn't work properly.

    Any suggestions? I spent many many hours on setting up Google Play.

    I had P30 Pro until its camera started to have some problem ( Zoom 1.0x to 5.0x cannot focus).
    I finally got Google Play installed with the help of @badmania98. Thanks for that @badmania98 ! 👏👏👏

    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

    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.

    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?
