This method worked amazingly, it costs money but its perfect. Thank you @badmania98 also for the amazing support.
All notifications come through immediately. Location services work great. Also for Dutch users: ING Contactless works through this method, it didnt work with just Googlifier.
i second that... got in contact with ilham yesterday and installed file 1 2 and 4 while skipping 3 as it was causing the playstore not getting gsf
playstore works, gmail works. google contact sync works. Push notifications wok
Maps works after uninstall of GAM
the only thing that doesnt work for me is adding contactless payment to googlepay

i installed it yesterday and still no error. Lets see if its gone for good
for ref: im on p40pro 10.1.0.131

thx @ilham great guy... recommended

    Yes big lies.
    Location services are totally messed up when using his big "solution", so basically you can't commute, or can't check in at your workplace.. I almost got trouble because of this today!!
    Even in gmaps your position is a grey dot. Any third party app using gapps won't refresh your gps location so basically you have no idea where you are.

    Notification works for half-a-day or so ONLY, then it says goodbye.
    Guy's advice was I should uninstall GAM, but I never ever had GAM installed lol. Or he said my apps were updated. I tried with older gapps, newer gapps, you can see Citymapper is NOT a gapp therefore it's 100% confirmed it's bullcrap what he is saying!!! Tried with updated app and leaving appdata, or reset appdata. Nothing works.

    Both manual ways installing Google and the Googlefier method too. From scratch both.
    Spent days on this...... Now I really give up and start using another phone.

    Attached screenshots. Once I put back GSF10 EVERYTHING WORKS flawlessly, all apps, gps, notifications but I'll get playprotect errors of course after a while.
    All he is selling is useless crap! Wasted time and money! Probably phising too... AVOID! This phone is doomed. No wonders it sells for £300 used.....

    No lies at all. 100% you don't know how to use the files and the guide. There are many guys that have the solution on the phone and it works OK. If you have the files from Ilham I can install them for free. But I have to connect to your phone via Team Viewer (Android).

    LE: It is not your fault neither. Ilham doesn't provide a full guide, just some guidance. A full tutorial that works on all phones it cannot be done.

    You can find me on telegram: https://t.me/badmania98

    Mate, when I switch to GSF10 RIGHT NOW == location is perfect, and Location accuracy can be toggled. And everything wonderful. Once installing Mr Pradanto's crap Location accuracy window simply quits can not be turned on and all apps crying for network location!!!

    Don't tell me it's my fault or idk something, even Ilham tried to help whole evening yesterday. He just said replace these two files. His video showing exactly just replacing two files. Nothing more.
    Location accuracy built in his crap simply doesn't work or he sent me a wrong file. In his video his GSF solution was asking for more permissions for contact access, and modify etc..

    And guy is clearly clueless, he was clueless last time too why the location doesn't work. If he WAS that big programmer he would know what's the deal, isn't it?? OR you really think someone like me can't tap tap tap swipe left right in play store?
    Mate, I was crack opening huge cardboard box of iphones making tons of money 14 years ago back in 2007, that was something! Command line scripts, file injects, jailbreak and stuff. This is childplay tap tap swipe compared to that! lol

    Happy for you that it works though. I just buy another phone and throw this on eBay for £200. MMkay camera, but everything else FAILS if you live in a Western country and wanna live your happy life. ALL MY FRIENDS got rid of the P40 who accidentally bought any losing HUNDREDS! Harmony OS == no one cares category again. We don't use chinese apps here. We use GOOGLE.

    Ok. Good luck!

    Just FYI: I have installed this solution on over 35 different Huawei phones, many users from here can confirm that. I know what I am talking about.

    where we are at now, literally nothing runs on my phone.. only the google account is there.
    you can speak and defend yourself and this 1.1.8 fake crap by the clueless pakistani guy, when at least ONE MORE PERSON appears here who successfully installed and everything works!

    until then this is just 2 people holding hands for each other. spent again 3-4 hours on this today as well, and my partner is ready to throw out my phone of the window, she said I should just open the drawer and use an old one from the 5-6 I got there until I buy a new one tomorrow.

    anyways good money farming for you two too! I won't post here any more. I posted to confirm this doesn't work. you can swipe left or right how you want.. also it's 100% ridiculous to ASK MONEY for this!!

    As far as I know XDA NEVER SUPPORTED PAID SERVICES IN ANY FORM!!!
    Especially fake ones! period.

    In my opinion you are angry. I understand that. You spread false information and you are rude with me. I don't know why. I was ready to help you because I KNOW WHAT TO DO AND YOU HAVE NO CLUE. And you are rude again. Sorry for disturbing you. It was my fault. I apologize. Have a good day.

    I also installed the Indonesian method on 3 phones 2 p40 lite and a p40 pro and it works perfectly, everything does not take more than 30 minutes! I think you're doing something wrong and it didn't work for you

    Just show some respect for ilham to even work on this device.
    I understand that's its anoying that sometimes his files don't work the way it should be, but it's a side effect of a workaround that has been made. It's the same for installing Google Play itself, it most of the time doesn't work the way it should be, and sometimes you need to redo it 5+ times.
    That's why @badmania98 said that the files are only a part of the solution. You also need the support, because it involves a lot of trying in some cases.
    For me it's working flawlessly now, with perfect location services and on time notifications. It took some time and a lot of trying to get there. Thanks badmania98 for the great support btw.
    I've been through problems with it too and I was one of the two people with a problem, but you knew when buying this device that things related to Google wouldn't be perfect. You should remain calm finding a solution, and be patient. Because when it works, you have an amazing device.
    I only paid 380 euro for the p40 pro, its an amazing deal for such a camera setup.
    Thanks again to @badmania98 and Ilham.

      Could you verify if it works on your phone:

      • Google Store – is working ;
      • GLA (Google Location Accuracy) is activated and Goole Maps works as it should;
      • No Play protect errors on the screen;
      • You have access to Password Manager of Google account- (used in Autofill function);
      • GFS is not frozen.
      • Push notification Tester app (by Bernd Bindreiter) - passes all steps.
      Yes, all thinks works well. Now I am at 113 hours whitout play protect error. I think, it will come back in 2 days. The I go to flight mode, stop gsf clear data and cache, make this till it can not stop more and than I reboot and the error come not back for a week.

      Maybe you deleted gms and installed the new one. Or you deleted data of gms. Try to uninstall/reinstall apps that need notification.
      no you just have to empty the cache and the data of the applications no need to uninstall it no longer has a notification because its framework id to change when it deleted the gms

      Below is a third version of the guide (ok, it's 3.5). As of January, 15th I've added great finding by @Seresseran1. Thanks man!

      The below guide will provide you with fully working Google services, play store will work, push notifications will work, location accuracy etc. Everything will work until you restart the phone without enabling flight mode first. Then you might start receiving play protect notifications and you have to redo the procedure.

      Prerequisite : GMS has to be installed and fully working without play protect notifications. Any method of installation should be OK, i prefer manual but Googlifier is fine.

      1a. Run following commands using ADB:

      adb shell
      cmd appops set com.google.android.gsf RUN_IN_BACKGROUND ignore
      cmd appops set com.google.android.gsf RUN_ANY_IN_BACKGROUND ignore
      cmd appops write-settings

      1b. Open Settings - Apps - App Launch
      Tap the three dots, select "Show system Processes".
      Search For Google Services Framework.
      Change from Manage Automatically- To Manage Manually. Deselect Options "Auto-launch" and "Run in background". Only secondary launch remains selected.

      2. Put phone in airplane mode. It's very important!
      3. Open Settings, go to Apps, Apps, tap three dots, select Show system processes, find Google Services Framework. Open it.
      4. If you have frozen Gsf defrost it (enable).
      5. Stop it if it's running. Go to Storage, clear cache, clear data. Stop it again if necessary.
      6. Restart the phone.
      7. Do not disable airplane mode yet! Wait few minutes in airplane mode or check with Device ID app if you see your GSF ID.
      8. Disable airplane mode and check play store. If you see error message, close it from task list and try again.

      If you restart the phone without enabling airplane mode first all you have to do is redo above guide starting from point 2.

      If you see play protect notifications do not panic! Enable airplane mode, go to settings, apps, apps, find Google framework services, goto storage, stop it, clear cache, clear data, restart your phone then you should be good.

      I do not use Google apps except maps, but they should work. Remember that using above guide does not mean your device will get play protect certification. So, Google pay will not work for sure.

      Here is what i think::

      1. install gms in one of the backways ( googlefier +++ )
      2. safetynet will not pass anyway because of uncertification
      3.up and running with google services until the error comes up.

      4. Like somone in here earlier mentioned, and i agree, the error comes up when communicating with google servers. I had excactly 8 hours on the second! between errors. Some of you 12 and 24 and on and on. (maybe variety because of where on earth we live or how google "check", i do not know)

      5. The gsf size DOES matter because that is the ONLY common reference all of us in here have to the error popping up. On any "normal" phone with GMS the size of this does not matter because the device is "whilelisted" with google.
      Communication with google will trigger this to come back at some point.

      6. We freeze GSF (google service framwork) with icebox or multitool to stop this communication/check with google and keep the GSF file on "HOLD". (size will not go up and down and no errors occur)

      7. Altso there is linked in this forum to google which is suppose to close down one after one app on uncertified devices. What will happen then? I use google home as normal with frozen GSF. It works 110%. So i stick with frozen gsf for now.
      All is normal , but need to use Aurorastore instead of Play Store. (unfreeze, refreeze for paid app or restore purchase after i format the phone.

      8. GAM (google account manager) i do not belive have anything to do with this at all. ( I might be wrong, but i belive this DOES NOT trigger errors.

      9. About our p40 (pro or plus) showing up as "Nexus, P30 lite, Mate 30, Mate 40 etc is ONLY because the author of the backup file made this backup file on these different units when the "GMS METHOD" you use was born. I do not belive this is relevant for the GSF at all.

      10. After testing alot of different disable this and that and errors and uncertified plus plus plus i now have stop at emui 11 (latest) with frozen GSF all working except google pay. I'd rather have notifications 100% working than 70% working.

      11. I really hope for a future solution for this unit. The P40 is remarkable and I fell in love with emui. I really love the enthuiasm from you guys not giving up this probelm . Keep it going guys!

      12. The end. :) (feel free to disagree with me, this is only my appinion on this)

      Will this break my notification? I really do no want to reinstall all my apps...
      Yes, the best way to have everything working is to repeat the whole process until you get it. And yes, changing GSF ID forces to reinstall/clean current apps.

      This is what works for me (may be different for others):
      0) Disable all location methods (GPS, GLS,...)
      1) Uninstall gsf-fix (in my case it may freeze phone, repeat until you can uninstall). If it's the first time doing the method uninstall any GSF you have already (you start from manual or googlefier method to get Gapps)
      2) Install Gsf10 + Activate GLS in options menu. Settings/Location/Google Location Accuracy
      3) Uninstall current GMS (in my case it may freeze phone, repeat until you can uninstall)
      4) Install GMS2.3 , 2.4 OR an updated GMS apk specific for your phone but for Android 6+ max (apkmirror)
      5) Get GSF ID: install several apps from Play Store. Play protect errors are good here. Device ID apps that show GSF ID need to be reinstalled too. This can take a while or not depending on the model, be patient.
      6) Uninstall GSF10 (stop and clean to uninstall - it may freeze phone)
      7) Install Gsf-fix + Activate GLS in options menu (screen may close when activating, but it may remain enabled)
      8) Reset.
      9) Check Play store, push and GLS enabled. If not go to step 1), it sucks, I know...
      10) install maps, auto. Reinstall or CLEAN data of any app that uses push (normally a clean is enough and you only need to login in the app again)
      11) For Android auto , update GMS manually with apk for your model/Android (Android 6+ max version of GMS). If you didn't get it already in step 4
      Extra) Don't update GMS from Play store ANYMORE. Always try an updated apk from Apkmirror or similar.

      EDIT: For some, GLS works by disabling ALL Location methods before installing a fresh Google Maps and accept when it asks for them. You can disable before doing any step and try this on step 10.

      Ok, let try this (i am not good with video)
      I needed to get errors and apps not working to do screenrecording.
      Thats why i took so long, sorry.

      See this video:

      You can see that the xplora app in the video is black. (screen recording will not record this app due to sensitive information, its my kids GPS watch ) but its not working in the start and fully working in the end.

      My play protect error does not show because i removed them, but they are there.
      You can se the google home is not working first.
      When i am finish with the video you can see evrything works, at least for me.
      But i do not like this unfreeze. i think it is unstable.

      The steps are as in the video:

      1. force stop GSF, clear gsf data, cache (see video)
      2. force stop google services, CLEAR BUFFER only (see video)
      3. Its done. (as shown in video)

      Now you see my play store is working, notifications are working until i get error later during the day. (GSF kb exceeded?) Hope this help those of you wanting to have it unfrozen, but not for me.

      You see no need for restart or plane mode. This works for me, but might not work for you.

      I will look into this post for updates from you guys. i really want an unfrozen solution. any feedback on the ictfix solution 3?

      Let me know if video is not working please

      EDIT : DO NOT USE THIS METHOD! TO MANY REPORTS OF FAILS!
      3
      for everyone who uses gsf 1.1.8 and have google accuracy problem. Or push notification can't run together with gls. Try remove your GAM(google account manager). It's work for me. I find this from the video. The author not have GAM when installed the patch. Thanks
