Hey, I followed everything step by step, tried to fix it and even redid it all, I still can't open the "Play Store", ever. I have a P40 Lite and everything seems to be correct except that I can't open it, help please 😅
I feel your pain. I nearly snapped my phone in two of pure frustration. So THIS is how I got my phone back to working :

I use Googlefier to the point where it uninstalls and reinstalls Google Play Services and the errors start. THEN I close it and follow the method this (https://phandroid.com/2020/06/01/how-to-install-google-play-store-huawei-p40-pro/) article from the point where they mention how to remove the errors. The link for DEVICE ID is useless so Google "Device ID Apk". You basically just use the app to see whether the certificate gets removed and put back..

Something extra I did was do the constant Force Close and Delete Data of the Google Service Framework until it was stopped instead of just clearing data as explained in the article.

Googlefier is basically an update of that article but that part of repeatedly opening and closing the play store and installing apps is bullshit. And DON'T delete the Services framework like in that Fonetech video. That's why the play store never opens in the end...

If you are error free, you can upgrade your Google play services to 21.21.16.
(make sure Automatic App updates are turned off in the Play store otherwise your Play services will update and you get errors again). If it happens, force close and uninstall it and install 21.21.16 again. And don't ever delete data on the Play Store again because it will turn on automatic updates again

Hope this helps more people.

PS : I updated the firmware to 11.0.0.181. I think the Android security patches in v223 has something to do with the breakdown on the 11th of October, but I stand corrected

I wish I could help you more, but this is a messy hack! I think something important in that article is the many times you have to "Clear The Background Running Apps".

After going through the Googlefier process up to the point where you've uninstalled and reinstalled the first Google Play Services and the errors start, watch this video from 2:40 for the rest of the process.


This is the process I used to install Google on my phone in July of last year and it's the same process I used to get it done again... But you'll have to start with Googlefier because the process in the start of the video of logging into the accounts, don't work anymore...

Hi there.i have successfully installed everything and it works fine with working notifications. However i noticed i have a backdated Google Playstore version which is 3 version back from the current one. My question is if i download the latest Google Playstore apk and manually install over the current one will it break my GMS? Afraid that it will break and will come out with Play Protect error or will break my notification. The problem is that it does not auto update the Playstore itself as it should be normally. Thanks in advance .

I'm running the latest play store and GMS 21.21.16. Just turn off the Play Protect and auto update. Maybe turn off data so that you can make sure it's off before it updates... It should be fine.

Huawei P40
Hello,
I tried to install google apps on my Huawei P40 Lite but I am stuck after many unsuccessful attemps.

I followed this video but I get stuck here:
I get error DF-DFERH-01 when open Google Play Store instead of having it working correctly, as shown in the video.

Details:
HUAWEI P40 lite
MODEL JNY-LX1
Build number 10.0.1.136 (C432E2R2P1) -> downgraded via
EMUI version 10.0.1


Any help?
I tried the Googlefier procedure many many times, factory reset the phone, tried again and again and again... no luck! :(

Thank you very much.

Try reboot the phone after few times clicking on the "TRY AGAIN" at the DF error in the Playstore and once reboot open up Playstore again and click on "TRY AGAIN" few times. If you can see your profile picture on the right top meaning you have the chance to make the Playstore load soon but if it does not,reboot the phone once more and repeat the step. If still occur after the 3rd time of rebooting redo back from start back. I encounter this lots of time with mine and solution is just reboot the phone after clicking lots of time at the "TRY AGAIN". Hope you fix that mate.

So my Huawei Matepad 10.4 (BAH3-W09) with the firmware shown in the screen shot, doesn't want to work with the app. Tried several times and did a full reset but when I try to use the Chinese Play app it tells me the device is not supported and the normal Play Store just closes immediately.

Does anyone know what else I can do?

Good morning.
I got a Huawei Mate Xs (with GMS installed from Googlefier in October 2020). Works fine, except notifications that I need for my banking app. Only for this purpose, do you think I can install microG without compromising GMS ?

Hey I faced the same error if you stuck there try to end all steps in googlefier if The error message still popup , use the cleaner button in the app and before you press first step go back to the chinesse app and re enable it again ( that fixed the playstore DF error )

This is absolutely FALSE. System updates do not break GMS, not even the october patch.
You're clear to update.

The only thing you shouldn't update is GOogle Play Services. If you update that app, it will trigger play protect warnings and break your Google play store and various other apps as it invalidates your play certificate.



If you happened to update Google Play services and now Google Play Store is not working, then you can fix that by uninstalling google play services app. Then download this pack:
and install 7-GSM Play Protect certified Fix.apk
this file. Then reboot and it will be fixed.

    Hi,
    This fixed my problem of contacts not synching.
    Now, only things not synching are keep notes and Google News.
    Google duo can't setup... When trying to send sms to validate phone number says that cannot sent request, check connection and try again.
    Anyone got around this?
    Also seems that some notifications are not appearing.
    I googlefied my p40 pro lots of times and this was the most functioning GSM I got until now.
    Thanks

    After a year of using Googlefier on my P40 Lite without any problem, suddenly a Google play protect errors started to appear. Google services are working properly on other apps, but Google apps are blocked.
    Here is a solution that worked for me.

    1. Uninstall all google apps except Google play services and Google play store
    2. Delete all cache and data of both apps (Settings->Apps->Select app->Storage)
    3. Try to open Google play store
    4. If it works without an error, open Settings->Security->Google Play Protect
    5. In upper right corner open the menu and disable all scans.
    6. Now you can download now all other google apps

    If it appears again after couple of days, you can do again the procedure when you have to use google apps. (Sometimes it auto enables Google Play Protect scans)

    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:

    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?
