Hi, I already tried, its no use to downgrade. Only way you gonna get GMS to work is to flash the chinese rom and thats way touch of a hassle. Got mine by paying a guy from Malaysia $40 to flash my device. Changed from CDY-NX9B to CDY-AN00
Maybe you dont use a right firmware. For this lzplay doesn't start= result GMS errors.Hey! Great post! I tried to follow along but my installation has 2 Issues: 1. The lzplay app doesnt start. I cant say what it is but its in chinese and wont start properly like ive seen in videos. 2. My googleplay wont start after I install the services. No matter where in the installation I try to install it. Everything else works fine. But googleplaystore just wont start. It basically flashes a white screen and crashes. Im using a Matepad 10.4. Any help would be gladly appreciated.
If it is made for China market would be possible. Otherwise no.Hello everyone, i plan to get myself either P50 pro or Mate 40 pro.. I'm new to huawei, so i did some research on google to see how to sideload gms, almost all the page i read refer their tut to this thread.. Is this method still works? Can i do it on P50 or Mate 40?
On P40 pro GMS can be installed on international version (after downgrade to EMUI 10.1.0.12x or 13x). For China market...no restrictions.
No. 2 here.
You can start reading my thread here.. You will find many info there.
Hi Bender, first I'd like to thank you for your contribution in the community.
Secondly, I ran into an issue that doesn't exist in troubleshoot section.
My phone is P40Lite
This is the earliest version I can rollback to with official Huawei software.
After I followed the initial backup / restore process, LZPlay was successfully installed （谷歌助手服务）. Then I ran the LZPlay app, and switched back to Googlefier, then new buttons showed up with 01, 02 and 03 respectively.
When I pressed 01 button, there's no response. I could see the faint shadow of the button on the screen as I pressed it, so it's definitely not the screen's problem.
I have tried at least twice on each of the following methods to resolve it:
1. Reinstall Googlefier and LZPlay app.
2. Disabling/Enabling all the permissions for both Googlefier and LZPlay app.
3. Reset all the settings of the phone.
4. Reset the phone completely.
Nothing works so far. My guess is that either there's an update on Googlefier that I didn't get (downloaded the APK via mirror link), or my phone with that build number is just no go
Thank you very much again for the awesome work so far. Any guidance is highly appreciated
First, let me thank you all for your awesome work, very helpful!
I have the same problem as Stein1290 and Mentalchaoz just above.
"After I followed the initial backup / restore process, LZPlay was successfully installed （谷歌助手服务）. Then I ran the LZPlay app, and switched back to Googlefier, then new buttons showed up with 01, 02 and 03 respectively.

I have a Huawei P40 pro ELS-NX9 build 10.1.0.121 that was downgraded following instructions with HiSuite proxy.
Do you have any idea on what to do? It seems it is a new problem as we are 3 having this problem in the same week.
Thanks in advance!
I also encourage all of the members to keep the "alternative downgrade methods" to some other threads, which I will for sure link later. Also please don't spam with firmware links, rather PM me and I will add it to POST #4, let's try to keep the thread clean. As time goes by, I'll try to add more firmware and cover more of the Q/A and Troubleshooting POST/Section so everyone can help himself / herself by simple power of reading
-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
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
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 C432 or C185 - just download the one for your device
OR - try method 2 with hisuite
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
7. I've hit the FIX button, but it doesn't fix a thing. Why do you lie to us?
-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..
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.
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?
