Hi all,

What is the latest Google Play Services version that works? I tried to use GMS below versions and I got an issue with some of Google related apps (e.g. Google Maps, Drive, Youtube, Twitter) force close by themselves (it just closes itself without any error message) after I open the app for some seconds (the time to close the app is quite random but it would probably close within 20 seconds!!).

❌21.48.55 (040408-415295581)
❌21.48.16 (040408-420364950)
❌21.48.15 (040408-414534850)

So, anyone can suggest on how to fix this?

The steps I changed GMS are below:
- Install GAM
- Clear Data on Play Store
- Uninstall GSF Fix
- Install GSF10
- Uninstall GMS
- Install new GMS
- Restart the phone
- Get GFS ID/Play Protect Error will appear
- Uninstall GFS10
- Install GFS Fix
- Uninstall GAM
- Check Push Notification
- Activate GLA.
- Restart the phone.

Hi community,
I got my hands on P40 Pro with 11.0.0.230 (C432E3R6P4) - European version. I've gone through this whole thread and various associated videos and forums about Google services on this phone, and I have a few (probably stupid) questions before starting the installation.

Will this whole procedure work for my European version and will it be able to return to the same version of EMUI?

I currently also have a P30 Pro and I'm still in doubt whether to replace it when I read all the problems around here. It's worth it?

If I'm not mistaken, there are 2 ways - virtual space (Gspace) and Googlefier. I think Googlefier is more secure in terms of the risk of leaking sensitive data, but is it really secure?

So what doesn't work or is limited or annoying compared to the original google services (on the P30 Pro for example)? Google Pay is replaceable using Curve Pay, OK. Is Google Play replaced by Aurora Store or working normally? Do notifications on connected wearable devices (Garmin in my case) works?

I also use my phone for work (multiple accounts) and I need a Google Authenticator - does it work?

Does Google Sync Everything, including backups and any restores, or is there a problem with restoring?

Simply put, I would not like to find out (after the whole process and after a few weeks of use, or after I sold P30 Pro) that something is not working (some security process) and I am blocked from using any service or that I have to reinstall the whole phone due to a new update.

Sorry for the many questions.

Thanks.

No offense, but I did not expect such an answer from you. Can you describe the reason a bit?

I watched that a downgrade from my version is possible (see your post here) or is it old information and Google added some security patch?

Thank you.
I have in the house: 1x Mate 10 Pro, 1x P30 Pro and 1x P40 Pro. I think I know the differences between them. On P40 Pro you will never, never, never have a 100% compatibility between phone and GMS. If you don't need GMS, go ahead and keep P40 Pro. If you need GMS (apps that are related to GMS) keep P30 Pro as long as you can.

On my thread I keep info updated. But the time for GMS on P40 Pro (not GSapce or other virtual apps) is ticking away.

I understand now. I appreciate the incredible work you do here and your skills. It must be difficult to fight both Google and Huawei.

Thank you.

Hello all,

Is there any other way to rollback, without the need of using HiSuite? And why I'm asking this?
Because apparently my device not supported to downgrade via HiSuite - not showing the option "Other version" from the "Update" popup window.

Hey guys, I have P40 Pro European model. I have installed Google Play and all other services with this method. I can confirm that everything works. Except for the notifications.

Even when I freeze the Google Services Framework, the notifications don't arrive normally except calls and SMS.

Try freezing the playstore as well, and clear the cache and data of the apps to be notified

Thank You jocanunu for the suggestion.

After a while notifications started working after I froze the Play store and Google Service Framework.

But now I get a problem with several apps (Bolt, Maps.me, Google maps and Waze) asking to enable google location services sometimes. Bolt does not work at all after freezing. Works only if I unfreeze.

So I confirm that:
-notifications start working after freezing + small delay + clearing cahce.
-play store starts working after unfreezing + clearing the cache.

So there seems to be workarounds for everything (except banking ofcourse), even if they are a bit hacky.

That's right, I'll keep testing if I find the solution to the location problem.

I got a new problem after a recent update. Upon opening any of the google services (gmail, calendar, maps), I get an error:

"This device isn't Play Protect certified". "Your device isn't certified to run Google apps or use Google services. Contact the device manufacturer or retailer and ask for a certified device".

I tried clearing data and cache of the affected apps, but did not help. Any ideas?

I have a weird problem, Googlefier crashes when trying to install Huawei Backup.

Doing it manually, after uninstalling Huawei Backup, I tried to install the Backup apk and it says I already have Backup installed. Checking user accounts, there's only one user (owner).

Anyone has this problem? It's on EMUI 11

    Hi ,
    This guide is to explain the easiest way to get GMS working on latest firmware i.e. EMUI 11.0.0.151 on P40 Pro 5g (Mine model was ELS-NX9)
    Thousand thanks to @bender_007 for such an amazing app i.e. Googlefier
    Step 1. FIRST Downgrade to FIRMWARE version 10.1.0.131 using Hisuite Proxy App (Detail can be seen on @bender_007 GOOGLEFIER Post (Method 2) or you can search youtube.
    Step2. While downgrade you may get data partition corrupted error, but no worries just do factory reset/ low level format in recovery.
    Step 3. As soon as system reboots after downgrade, DO NOT INSTALL ANYTHING EXCEPT GOOGLEFIER APP by @bender_007
    Step 4. Run Googelfier app and just follow the steps EXACTLY AS MENTIONED . Remember my words ....EXACTLY
    Step 5. After following all steps as mentioned you will get perfectly working GMS services on 10.1.0.131 firmware. Everything works fine here even Google pay is working fine EXCEPT GOOGLE DUO AND FIREBASE BASED PUSH NOTIFICATIONS OF GMAIL.
    BUT YOU WONT GET OTA UPADTE IMMIDIATELY IN YOUR phone, to upgrade to latest firmware. Maybe you can get that in a day or 2 or more.
    Step 6. NOW TO MANUALLY UPDDATE TO LATEST FIRWARE, just follow the hisuite proxy app method which you followed for downgrading. Just identify the exact FULLOTA in Firmware finder. Note down its link and version number. paste in Hisuite proxy app and upgrade
    I HEREBY CONFIRM THAT GMS works perfectly fine even after upgrading to EMUI 11.0.0.151
    CHEERS.


    on 18th Nov 2020, i got automatic ota update of 10.1.0.182 AND ON 31st December i got OTA update for emui 11.
    Everything working fine as before i.e. all Google services.

    Only issue you will face is the delayed notifications and google duo not working.
    TO RESOLVE BOTH ISSUES, AFTER INSTALLING GMS SERVICES USING GOOGLEFIER, DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL ICEBOX APP ON YOUR PHONE.
    ACESS YOUR PHONE THROUGH ADB AND ENTER THIS COMMAND ----- adb shell sh /sdcard/Android/data/com.catchingnow.icebox/files/start.sh

    Then ICEBOX will run automatically in your phone. In icebox app, select simple adb method (last option) and select system apps, search for google framework services and freeze it.
    THATS IT ....ALL NOTIFICATIONS DELAY WILL BE GONE AND GOOGLE DUO WILL ALSO WORK FINE.

    USE AURORA STOTE FOR APP INSTALLTION FURTHER OR DEFROST FROZEN GOOGLE FRAMEWORK TO REACTIVATE PLAY STORE WHEN APP INSTALLTION REQUIRED...DONT FORGET TO REFREEZE AGAIN.


    ENJOY

    Hello All,

    I've been using P40 Pro since it was released without GMS, but I started to feel it's missing.
    I am currently on 11.0.0.202 and my device number is C432. Could you guys give me a direction from where to start for GMS installation? It would be really helpful for me because I will get lost in these 17 pages.
    i have Video, but in german language.
