I have sold my device and have reverted back to my OnePlus 6T for now. The P40 Pro has great hardware just irritating to get around some of the software restrictions. Waiting for the next OnePlus device to be released.

Yep, unlocked bootloader is the only viable option for current devices.

Hi,
Is anyone able to use whatsapp without the Google services ? I did a local backup on my samsung s7 duo then move the folder to the p40 pro, but when restoring it told me there is an error and I got the chat history from 1 month ago :crying:

Had the same issue, before running whatsapp for the first time (you will have to uninstall it again) you need to go to Settings>Apps>Whatsapp>Permissions and change storage to Allow otherwise it can't write the database back to the storage directory.

What about allowing root? I had a Meizu phone time ago and it allowed to be root in the settings.
With root Huawei sures that:
1. No bricked phones (recovery is untouched and system can be always restored). This is not assured with unlocked bootloader.
2. Users have use EMUI software and can use their paid services(cloud, video, etc)

But system can be modified by users and GMS can be installed as sytem apps.

am I right?

Hi,
Just to be sure I fully understood the different steps to perform, I must do the following ?
1. Go to Settings>Apps>Whatsapp>Permissions and change storage to Allow
2. Uninstall WhatsApp
3. Move the last local backup to the folder Whatsapp/Databases
4. Install again WhatsApp (whatever the version?)
5. Do I have to change again the permissions and change the storage to allow ?
6. Open WhatsApp, which will do the restore with the last local backup

The issue arose because I transferred whatsapp via phone clone. So to fix it I did this.

1 Uninstall Whatsapp (it will ask if you want delete the data, obviously say no)
2 Download the apk from whatsapp home page
3 Reinstall
4 Go to settings and change Storage Permissions to allow
5 Run whatsapp and set up
6 Restore from local backup

Those are the steps that I used and it worked fine.

In the past I always used to restore WhatsApp backups by doing these steps:

-Take your WhatsApp folder from your last phone
-Paste it to your root folder of the new device
-Install whatsapp
Configure it and it will restore the backup on initial run

Dunno if this has not changed over time, but I never had any problems with that.

Same here, the main difference for me is that the backups are stored on google drive not internal storage. Without GMS there's no way of getting them back. Anyway, I've had enough of the P40 Pro, I can do without Google, but the apps I use need GMS to run leaving me with a barely usable phone so am sticking with my P30 Pro for the time being.

Mine are stored in drive as well, but if you take a look inside the WhatsApp folder on your phone, you will noticd that it also keeps a local backup over there, messages and chat

https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/oauth2/native-app

Google uses OAuth2 protocol for authentication. Huawei also.

For an application that accesses a third-party service, the security problem is even more complicated. Not only does the user need to be authenticated to access the service, but the application also needs to be authorized to act on the user's behalf.

Bottom line, your gmail account is not the problem, Huawei browser is as an app. Simple solution wolud be changing ROM code to use another browser instead. But, with locked bootloader , don't know how this is possible.
Those are my findings.
Cheers

    Hi everyone!

    Garanteed solution right here: https://youtu.be/HAxj0FYgwoY

    The method is SIMILAR to the old one, but it has a few nuances.
    It includes the instalation of a file I had never seen before on any other method. You can check it out (and how it allows to sign-in at Google) around 11:30 of the vídeo I posted above.

    I repeat: it solves Google Sign-in error.

    Also, it seems to be much easier to install on the first try. I don't know why.


    Cheers!!!!

    Hello, wouldn't it be theoretically possible to patch the framework so that it reads the device data from a self-created file? In this file you could, for example, store data from a P30 Pro.

    I've followed this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgndzOCFR_8

    It's the same procedure I've found in other thread and videos but for some reason, with this everything works.

    The only thing, as said, is the Gmail sync. Someone should develop an app that disable/enable the sync of the account (or simply force it) every X minutes in loop. I've found a very old app that disable/enable the sync with a tap. Better than nothing.

    Say "Hi" if you are a developer and want to develop this app.

    thank you! also, did the apps come from the playstore or some apps, like netflix, had to be sideloaded? :)

    *may I know which youtube guide worked for you? there's a lot to comb over
    I've download every thing from playstore and I have until now no problems with Netflix etc.

    And I use this instructions
