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.
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.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?
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!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.

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.
the "when system is asking" part, are you talking about OTA? i don't think so. but it can be done manually.
Hi wyst (or other lucky users of Huawei with working native google services/apps)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
Ya, all Google services/apps are still working on mine until now (but I blocked play store intentionally, more on this later).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) / 126.96.36.1990 (C432E5R5P5)
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
same situation here., were you able to solve it somehow?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.
disable Google Service Framework using multitool 81 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??
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?
