ok, thanks for the answer, but i'm interested if there is a possibility to install google services.. I mean if there is a solution for an dowgrading or something else?
You cannot downgrade because the phone is new. The same is the firmware (EMUI). It is not an old enough firmware to download at, and this is the cause that you cannot install native GMS. You can use virtual apps (GSopace, GBox, VMOS, etc).

Understood, thanks a lot for the info.

Do you know which one of the virtual apps it's better?
I mean, I really need to use google pay and stuff like that, so the question is: Which one of the apps that you mentioned does it have the least restriction?
With GSpace I cannot use Google Pay..

I think if all of this apps are virtual machines for using Google Services, none of them can be used to make payments, i'm right?

Gpay cannot be used on any Huawei without GMS out of the box. I dont use any virtual app because I use GMS native on my P40 Pro. But I am following GSpace and GBox. None of them can use GPay also.
Instead, you can install Curve app (a wallet similar to GPay) from AppGallery and enroll your cards on it. With Curve you can pay at store via NFC.
If Curve is available for your zone/country.

Thanks again! I hope that USA change its mind regarding Google Services on Huawei.. It's ok now they kept Huawei on hold a lot of time.. Cheers!

Thank you.
the "when system is asking" part, are you talking about OTA? i don't think so. but it can be done manually.

Hi, I've a P40 Pro (ELS-NX9) running EMUI 11,0,0,249 (C636E3R4P3). I used Googlefier to install GMS a while back. Play Store and all Google Apps had been running perfectly fine. Lately when I tried to access Password Manager in Chrome, I got this warning saying I had to update my Play Service in order to do that. I was reluctant but I gave in couple of days ago. What a terrible mistake. Now none of my Google Apps works. They all give this "This device isn't Play Protect certified" warning.

The "Google Play Services" I now have installed is 22.48.14.

Any idea how I can make Google Apps functional again ? Can I just re-install an earlier version of Play Services ? If so, which version is the last "good" version to use ? If not, any other ways to make it work again ?

Love my P40 Pro, Would hate to lose it this way. Many thanks in advance.

I was able to solve the issue and added my work Gmail (google workspace gsuite) onto my P40 Pro phone successfully. In a summary, I think it may be because of the Google device registration but I am not 100% sure. I will explain the steps I did.

After several attempts of resetting up through Googlefier, I can't get my work Gmail to work so I tried out HuaGu app approach www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kGkLsf83Bk D
Hi wyst (or other lucky users of Huawei with working native google services/apps)

Are the google apps still working?

What was exactly your set-up on the phone before you have tried the HuaGu version? ----
Model / firmware?
EMUI or Harmony version? If EMUI, what version?
What have you tried/installed (googlefier, the chinese app from bender?) on the phone before you tried with HuaGu?
What google app was working and which not?

My current set-up:
Huawei P40 (ANA-NX9) / 12.0.0.290 (C432E5R5P5)
EMUI 12.0.0
Have started from EMUI10 with googlefier from Bender. Then upgraded to EMUI12 and also updated all apps. Was working well since 05/2022 until some update of Google play (services) in sept.
Since then no access to google play, gmail, calendar/drive

regards
Peter

Ya, all Google services/apps are still working on mine until now (but I blocked play store intentionally, more on this later).

I was originally on EMUI 12 when I got my phone, downgraded to 11 then 10 then used the Googlefier method. Certified error came not long after and I tried the Huagu method and it works. I think the issue is from Google Play Services so after everything is sorted with Huagu, the next thing I did was:

Settings > Apps > Apps > Show System Processes > (search Google)
Click on "Google Play Store" > Data usage > and turn off all Network Access for Mobile Data, WiFi and Background Data. You can use AppGallery or other stores. Or if you really need an app on Play Store, what I did is to switch on the WiFi for Play Store temporarily and switch it off after app install.

This solves the Google Play Services being auto updated for me. I'm sure there are other methods that can block the update but I haven't had time to play around yet. Maybe @badmania98 has a more elegant method.

Hello, I need help. I have a Huawei Mate Xs and I'm currently on EMUI 12.0.0.290. A month ago, I downgraded to EMUI 11 and then to EMUI 10. Now, after a month, when I try the same downgrade (absolutely the same version of the system, using the same method), the lowest I can go is EMUI 11.0.0.168. When I try to roll back to EMUI 10, any version, the device goes into bootloop and nothing helps (delete cache memory, factory reset). The only way is System Recovery via HiSuite Proxy on EMUI 11 and that's it. Has anyone else had a similar problem and is there a chance that Huawei will put some sort of ban on it with the 12.0.0.290 update

    1 month ago I downgraded my wife's p40 pro. I installed googlefier and it worked great. I upgraded EMUI back to the current version and everything still worked just fine for a month.

    Today Google playstore says the device isn't play protect certified. Not sure what changed! Is there an easy way to fix this or do I have to downgrade again and start the process all over again?? :(
    disable Google Service Framework using multitool 8

    disable Google Service Framework using multitool 8
    Where do I find multitool 8.

    If I disable it will it allow us to use playstore etc again?

    Or just stops showing the error message popups?

    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?
