Guys, if you Huawei P40 Pro User and plan to downgrade your emui 11 to emui 10, please consider the following points :

1. Downgrade from emui 11 (latest) will make your device lost USB Connection. Mine and some users reported they lost OTA Update capability. Also fast charging capability. Huawei seems try to block all downgrade. Maybe the next time, it will getting worst and worst. So, do it all with your OWN RISK.

2. Based on point number 1, MAKE SURE you choose the suitable Emui 10 Version before downgrade. My experience, for Huawei P40 Pro, the best Emui 10 version that still support Googlefier/LZPlay is Emui 10.1.0.131. So please, choose that version when you downgrade your Emui using Hisuite Proxy.

3. If you choose another Emui 10 version, like Emui 10.0.1.176 and then lost OTA Update, USB Connection, and have no idea what to do, don't afraid. Last time, when i also in the same situation, USB Type C to Type C still working for me and make my device still can connect to HiSuite.

4. Installing GMS on your Huawei P40 Pro not always succeed on first try. Some users told be they need even 10 times until GMS installed. So, when you failed for the first tray (Google Play Service Notification appear again-again), try to install it again.

5. After finished installing GMS, you can update to Emui 11 to make all problem i mention on number 1 back to normal. GMS also can still working on Emui 11.


Thanks
I did downgrade to emui 10 and i lost usb and otg and etc then i found a way for update my phone
Now i have emui 11.0.0.151 but still no USB no OTG and etc. do you have any idea what should i do?

Googlefier works for me on 11.0.0.230
But I installed it back on emui 10...
I made a complete mess today by activating App twin and was getting the dreaded not Google verified device.
So I ran Googlefier it took 2 attempts to get Google play services back working.
Then used ice box to freeze Google Framework / use aurora store and get all notifications.
Thank you so much Mr E B 👍🏻

Is Icebox a good method to update Google play services without the need to reinstall GMS?

To use ice box you need Google play services installed, for apps to work. you just choose Google play store to never auto update then use Icebox with adb to freeze Google Framework services. You then use Aurora store to download your apps. I've been using it for everything including banking apps for over a year and had no issues.
If you go on you tube and search for fix notifications
Or use this video.


You loose access to playstore but everything you need is on Aurora store and you get notifications for all apps.

Put lazy app on phone/ put Googlefier on phone and try.
I have managed to reinstall GMS on emui 11 using Googlefier as I had done it previously on 10.x
It's worth a try, it will say not for this firmware but may work. It took me 2 or 3 attempts but worked.
I'm not sure if it will work for you as you have restored phone. As for ota updates I downgraded to 131 on p40pro global and got all the updates, they don't come straight away, you may have to wait an hour for updates to show on your phone.

Also I think your USB stick is not showing up because you've lost file transfer. You may have to buy a nano sd card.
Ive never used one and am not sure if you can go from current fw back to 10 using a nano sd card

I bought an NM card, I wait for it to arrive and try again with the downgrade, I don't want to try to put the GSM devices if I don't have FastCharge, OTA updates and the possibility of connecting with USB.

Edit: the phone has been updated for more than a day and other updates do not arrive so I have to force them.

i don't think it will work. I resolved it, badmania98 helps me.
first you hawe to try update using eRecovery menu, to get it: 1. turn off your phone 2. press power button and volume up for 10-15 seconds (untill you see Huawei logo). 3. press "update mode" 4.press "eRecovery mode" 5. press "Update and recovery sistem" 6. press "Download update and recover" 7. connect to WI-FI and search updates and insall them. From now "actually for me" you can update your phone only using this mode or using HiSuite, no more updates via OTA. if there isn't any update you hawe to buy a NM card and a cart reader and install versions on your device usind dload method from the NM.

I already have version 230.
With Hiproxy the update stop at 5% and tells me "software install failed". Same with Recovery mode.
With the USB key the downgrade is blocked at 2%.
Thank you for your advice and see you soon.

If your Mate 30 Pro is on EMUI 11.0.0.230 , downgrade first with dload to 220, and after that continue with HiSuite Proxy.

    Hello badmania 🙂

    I have a p40 lite that I downgraded to 1.0.1.136. The Google Play services work and I can install apps. The trouble is I keep getting notifications (every few seconds from all google apps) that my phone is not Google Play Protect Certified. How do I stop this from happening?

    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?
