Hello,

I wanted to show you my own approach to make it work 100%.

*This GUIDE was written for a German forum so the video will be spoken in German but you can just follow what I do in the video.
*You only have to install the Device APK in the included folder if you can't install it via Playstore.


After you have installed all the Google services, I recommend to use PHONE-Clone to transfer your data. I used all data, including Google APPS and in the end it looks like you only changed your Smartphone

Before we start, I want to make it clear that everyone should decide for themselves whether to follow this guide, we all know that foreign software is not so popular, but that's the way it is in the hobby developer corner

If you are afraid that your data will be sucked up then do it, it is not that easy so please refrain from these comments! This GUIDE is specially made for people who want to install the Google Play Services.

The following apps are currently not working with it:
  • Google Pay
  • Google Music
  • Google YouTube Music
  • Google News
  • Google service for push messages (how disadvantageous this is remains to be seen)

What do you need for this GUIDE?
-USB C cable
-A PC or Notebook
-20 minutes of your life


Installation Package] (if you don't have the possibility to install device ID from the Playstore you can find the APK in my installation's folder but please try before via Playstore )
LINK: P40 & P40 PER GUIDE

The video is currently in German but you could just copy what I do

So what happens when an OTA update arrives? Do you have to install all again? Do apps stop working?
I'm nearly about to pull the trigger But.........

Sent from my P30 Pro

This has not been checked yet. I had installed all updates before and only then installed the services on it. If an update should activate the push notifications again, you only have to repeat the last steps:

Clear the framework data and cache and see if it works.
If not then delete play services and uninstall framework and install it again. This should work then

No longer working for me ☹️

Worked fine for a day and then started getting the error messages. Tried to go through the process again and could not get it to work with any of the play services replacement files supplied.

Any ideas?

Don't make it complicated. The proccess are quite simple:
1. We need only 2 gms files: gms1 as the link I sent above, gms2 is the latest right version for your phone ( should choose no dpi, armv8 x64 and Android 10: 120400 variant )

2. After activated Play Service you get the errors, remove gms2, install gms1 then reboot.

3. Open Play Store, download some apps, first app should be a heavy app. When they start the download progress, clear GSF(GG Service Framework) data then back to Play Store and continue to download the rest apps for some mins. After this you will get error free.

Reboot the phone, remove gms1, reinstall gms2 and Done

As you said, now remove gms1, install gms2, reboot and do it again from no2 above.

The only step that i miss is that i cant login into my G Suite account and cant find any tutorial how to make it working after installing the GMS.

Can someone help me with it? Is there a way how i can login with my G Suite account?

Already thanks...

Any solution to sign in google problem? This is a big big problem now :crying:

---------- Post added at 07:35 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:49 PM ----------

Someone on youtube have solved in this way:

1. Clear cache and data of google account manager from Settings>Apps.
2. Uninstall google account manager.
3. Download GAM 4.4.4 from apkmirror and install
4. Add google account as shown. When it prompts for credentials press 3 button shortcut on upper left corner and sign in through browser
5. Enter account name and password. It then returns to google account manager again but this time the name is already there!
6. Enter account password again and voila!
