Ok so I got it working on 10.1.0.131 updated to 178 and then I got an OTA straight to 11.0.0.151...I thought it was all good, but I had to unfreeze Google services framework in order to get play store to work... And then I got the dreaded play protect notifications...

So gutted to spend all that time and now I need to get back to 131 and try again!

Is anyone who managed to get to EMUI 11 still have it working OK?

Yeah, working fine for me.

I started on 11, reverted to 10.1.0.131, googlifier then updated to 176 and then 11.x without any issues

you got ota update to 176 then 11.x? or did you use proxy for both? I was on 131 for almost a week now and not receiving any ota updates. Updated to 176 just now, still not receiving it.

do you mind sharing the file number from firmware database?
for 131 I used 409481
and for 176 I used 476970

I still don't understand why there are multiple versions of the same update

I got ota for both. Go into the huawei support app and update from there, it seems to force the latest OTA.

I got OTA from the off after googlifying - like instantaneous, before running googlifier it was prompting me that 00:00 it would update to 176 so i didn't need a further file from database just all of it was from .131

When you go to update and search it comes back saying your running latest? What about when you use Hisuite ?

I update from .131 to .176 via Hisuite Proxy... Hoping getting it's updates and is not working.... Now I'm trying to update to emui 11.0.0.151 and Hisuite keep saying GROUP DONT MATCH... Or no connection to internet. I don't know if I'm making something wrong... Can you help me?

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

If I use Icebox and freeze Google Framework. Will Gmail and Google map work?
how do I enter Command adb shell sh /sdcard/Android/data/com.catchingnow.icebox/files/start.sh

Many thanks

i have used HiSuite Proxy today, rolled back from 11.something or other, to 10.1.0.131, ran Googlefier, then got 3 or 4 OTA updates to bring me to 11.0.0.168 i haven't used the icebox method for firebase apps yet. Mainly because i use Outlook for my Gmail accounts, and it works just fine.

Previously, i was using Icebox with the old LZPlay method to get my notifications.GMail excluded of course.

Question: Is anyone else not getting Whatsapp notifications? I have the notifications set to manual control, and the 3 boxes ticked (run on start, 2nd startup, run in background) but is seems like it's being put to sleep. I will get notifications as soon as i open the app. or, if i've just been using it, say 3 or so minutes ago, i will get notifications come through, after that, nothing. Do i need to IceBox for them to come through?

For some reason after rolling back to 131 , googlifier gets stuck on the fix notification part. Also Games no longer loges in.

Guys, I'm trying to follow these steps on my P40 Pro (ELS-NX9). Its currently on EMUI 11.0.0.151. When I try to install the hisuite over to the phone using the hisuite installed on Windows (which is 10.0.0.510 according to the steps here), I''m getting an error on my cell phone stating that the "hisuite version is incompatible with the current system version"
Has anyone seen this problem? Do I need to use a latest hisuite version from Huawei website? Can someone help get pass this point in the downgrade process?
Thank you.
