Googlefier - Install GMS on Huawei/Honor

I wrote this for another forum and thought it might be of use to some here. Especially those with a Matepad Pro:

Ok all,

You can learn from my mistakes and lost evening * * I know have Google installed on my new Matepad Pro and here is what I did...

1. When you set up the device disable automatic updates
2. Go in to settings/About Tablet and check you are on 10.0.1.177 (Matepad Pro purchased in the UK 2nd November)
3. Now go to System & Updates - Software Update and if you are offered an update to 10.1.0.120 (Matepad Pro only) INSTALL THIS UPDATE (Not crucial for installing GMS but it is the newest firmware that I think will work. The next version upgrade I am being offered is to 10.1.0.180 DO NOT install this version)
4. Open this Youtube video on a laptop etc so you can pause as you go through the installation: https://youtu.be/iWG-9nXfvkA
5. Go HERE and scroll down to the large red DOWNLOAD link (https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/googlefier-install-gms-huawei-honor-t4180485)
6. In conjunction with the video above go through the motions to use Googlefier to install GMS on your device.

Some IMPORTANT points to note:
- Don't worry about the annoying pop ups. They will stop later in the process
- When testing Play store (as you will be asked to do) install any apps. When the whole process is finished these apps WILL NOT show in your list of installed apps so will need to be deleted (long press the icon and select Uninstall) and re-installed to show in the list of installed apps - unless you aren't fussed about them showing in their. I would imagine updates will still show in the "Updates" list within Play Store
- Follow the above video through to the end as it makes you go through a fix process which stops the notification alerts that will annoy you throughout the install.

After installation you can do two things...
1. DONATE to bender007 through the Googlefier app. He has allowed me to have an iPad Pro killer device at a third of the price and overcome the Trump Bullshit Ban - Well worth a donation so he can go buy a couple pints as thanks
2. Uninstall Googlefier (I can't see a way to uninstall the LZPlay app (with the chinese text) so will update this if I figure it out

Go setting-Apps-Apps-Search for LZ play to uninstall it. :D

Just an update that I have succeeded installing play store, but apps that require Google login don't work - eg Gmail. Also, the play protect notification keeps popping up.

Also the OTA doesn't show new updates even though I'm on 131.

Any advice pls?
Most of the problem solved after step 3. You need to repeat step 3 and try fix notification. And must follow what screen instruction tells you. Try and try that's all. No doubt Googlefier will definitely solve your problem.

Hello, that's very weird, you followed all the steps, read the instructions and it doesn't work?

---------------------

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.



post 5
3. I've done everything the video said, everything that the message boxes asked me to do, I can't open playstore
-That's because you didn't do everything the video or the message boxes said. The reason why playstore doesn't work is you didn't run LZplay(chinese app) or LZplay just closed on you when you tried to open it. You need to run it, grant the permissions and tap on the bottom button, then press home.

4. LZplay just closes on me.. wtf?
-Your firmware version is too new - check POST #3 and then POST #4 . But make sure you do a backup first (Please don't ask how to do backup, there is Hisuite, you can export the contacts to vcf, you can copy the pictures, etc)
P.S. If LZplay closes you can also see Playstore not working. So you know = you have to downgrade
I get this message
greska123.png

5. Google Play Store just crashes, what happened? I've done the login procedure
-Downgrade your firmware.

6. I can see Google plays services on my screen
-Downgrade your firmware.



Hm, very weird that after reading the posts 1-4 you still have done everything right :) - this of course was sarcastic, don't get offended (I should get offended by people not reading but..it's life :) )

If you don't find what you seek for in this few quoted (already answered things, please ask another one)

ok, now all the logins work and no more prompt, but the OTA definitely doesn't work. Have also tried different versions of HiSuite (10 & 11)

Hi,
tu as de la chance je parle français et je passe par là. Je te conseille de lire la première page ou au pire d'utilisé Google traduction. Car cette première page est vraiment complète et tout y est expliquer il faut juste prendre le tmps de la lire car j'ai moi aussi rencontré un probleme avec un autre divice.

Mais je vais de donner des piste de recherche, ton firmware est certainement sortie avant de 15 juin 2020 donc non compatible, il faut alors que tu télécharge un Firmware corespondant à ton téléphone et l'installer à l'aide du menu recoveny ( bouton power + Volume UP) au démarrage du téléphone.

Bonne chance et bon courage.

Hello
After having installed all gms is it possible to upgrade emui?
Everything will stay ok after all upgrades even with emui 11 on p40 pro?
I think you can upgrade even to 11, yes. But what Will happen in the future is unsure. Maybe also some anti-rollback in firmware etc

Hello, is it too much to ask to read post 1-4 ?

Thx

You said that if "your device was released april+ it won't work". You mean the device itself (like, motherboard in my cease) or just the specific model release? Because I stopped reading after this and asked my question.

The device itself of course.

What you now need to do is:

1. check your device codename (els-nx9, ana... etc)
2. check your firmware version
3. either check when it's released (and see if it's before 15.6.2020) OR here (it's not accurate do to the weakest part of every chain (human factor))
4. check if restoration works, if the purple app works, if not - downgrade


That said, you can be sure it will work for you - at least once you downgrade

It doesn't work without downgrade, that Chinese app is closing.
PS.
My firmware version is C432E8R6P1. Does that R6 matter? These links you provided are all either 4 or 5.

    I just installed Google play services on my new p40pro and everything seems to be working. Thank You dear bender007, I will definetely buy You a coffee on Patreon. It took me 2 days to do this, but finally I did it.

    To everybody:
    1. Downgrading from EMUI 11 to EMUI 10 can be done though official HiSense app

    2. When downgrading from EMUI version 10.1.0.176 downward, only the "update from storage" USB-stick/pendrive/sdcard version works, DON'T TRY to use HiSense proxy, because Huawei removed the downloads and they are unreachable.

    3. Which version to use when updating from storage?
    To Downgrade from EMUI 10 downward, bender007 provided us with downgrade versions in his initial post. From the build version, only the first 4 characters must match C432XXXXXX. My build version was C432E8R6P1, but I installed C432E8R5P2 and everything is working fine. So only C432 needs to match.

    3. After downgrade, everything else is easy and You just need to follow the step by step guide in the Googlefier app.

    Don't know if method of System hacks on YouTube still works. He did 2 downgrades and links are under the video, maybe it could be helpful
    Yeahh
    Cheers, at least it should work, I tried the fw downloads but theyr'e all dead, too many download messages on them. Struggling to find .131 to download from anywhere that doesn't want money
    Yeahh sometimes downloading is crashed. Try to sign in to your google drive acc, or just download this fw from my mega:

    Ok I bought a refurb p40pro, ELS-NX9 running emui 11.0.0.175 (C432E3R5P3) is this still doable with this method? The original posts are missing all sorts of links and info now, and 100 pages is just too many to read through. I can use pc or usb otg if necessary. I have read a lot and am struggling to find any download links for earlier firmwares

    Ok guys, I've got downgraded to 121, installed everything, had google play working, installed some games to test ( I was getting loads of alerts saying device not allowed or words to that effect) and now it's just closing as soon as I open it. I've fixed the install around ten times now, even removed and reinstalled everything three times - anyone suggest anything?
    I also had to do it a number of times. Try again with fix from 3rd step up, open play, close, close all running apps and again 3,4,5 times. All as it says. If it still doesn't work try as bender says second method with huawei suite. That's all I know, hope it helps! 🤔🤔🤗🤗

    @Crusader: maybe this help you:

    Yeahh

    Yeahh sometimes downloading is crashed. Try to sign in to your google drive acc, or just download this fw from my mega:
    Many Thanks, getting late now, looks like a Saturday job now. First FW downgrade done though :)

    Wecome to Googlefier,

    After a successful tool for LG G2 and LG G3 owners (AutoRec), but after a long pause, here is something new and I hope useful

    Googlefier is a simple tool, designed to help you install GMS on your Huawei/Honor device


    gf.PNG



    Video & Article - please take time to watch the video, answers some open questions



    Check stats for your device here

    statsi.png


    Please read the Q/A on POST #2 < click

    Downgrade help is on POST #3 < click

    Firmware Downloads (c432 global only) are on POST #4 < click

    Troubleshooting is on POST #5 < click


    Before asking any questions please read posts 2-5, check if your question has already been answered, in order to keep the thread clean.

    Also - try to ask questions in some sense they are understandable

    A simple: "IT doesn't work - will be ignored and possibly deleted, because it doesn't add to thread quality", instead you should describe the steps properly, and you will get an answer.

    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

    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.

    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
