Greetings,
I have put together a proper tutorial for you all who need it on how to get Google Play Services on the Mate 40 series!
This is confirmed to work on the Chinese versions / the Mate 40 RS Porsche which is a china exclusive device as well. It's possible it could work on International models but I do not have one to test so that will be up to you here. Nonetheless let's begin the tutorial shall we?

Make sure there are no google apps installed prior to this tutorial. This is crucial! This includes Chrome.


Google won't let me share a link to the google apps so look up John Wang on youtube and you should be able to find the GMS install with his download link on the video.




Next: extract the Huawei.zip file in step 1 folder to the root of your internal storage it should ask you to merge with an existing folder please do so. If it does not, just proceed to copy it to the root of the internal storage.

You will then need to go into your system settings, and change your date& Time to say June 1st of 2020, a necessary step to get the LZ Play app (The Blue G) working again.

Once this is done, go to your settings on your Huawei device, where the search bar is, type Backup and select the second option Backup & Restore.
Tap the 3 dots at the top right corner of the screen and select Restore from Internal Storage.
From here, you should have one backup option to select from December 6, 2019 1:09 PM.
Enter the password a12345678

Next, open the LZ Play app installed now from the backup, activate it as administrator, allow anything it asks, and then press the blue button to get it working, leave it run in the background so do not close it.

Now at this point, please set your system date and time back to Set Automatically again.

Next, restart your phone.

Go to your file browser on your Huawei phone, the yellow folder, and install Micro G app in the step 2 folder.

Now, go to your settings, Users& Accounts
Then Add Account
Then Google
Then Sign In (if it closes out do it again)
At this point type in your google account information username and password.

Click on I agree when you get to the end part of adding your google account.

Now install the Google apps under Step 3

Install 3.apk first which is Google Play Store
Install Google Service Framework 7.apk
Install Google Account Manager 6.apk
Open Google Play Store
Uninstall Micro G
Install Google Play Services apk 3.apk
Close out of Google Play Store, re open, and keep hitting retry until the play store loads up. If it does not load up after significant amount of retries, simply reboot device and open Google Play Store again and hit refresh until it loads.

We are almost done! Now we are going to fix the Google Play Protect Not Certified Error next :)
Put your device into Airplane mode so no data is being used during this step otherwise it won't work!
Open Apps under your settings, and tap the 3 dots, show system processes.
Type Google
Open Google Service Framework, select storage, clear data, then go back one and force stop it
Open Google Play Store, force stop.
Open Google Play Services, just clear cache (NOT DATA)
Restart Phone
Go back to settings and Apps, tap the 3 dots, show system processes.
Type Google
Select Google Play Services. Clear cache. Then Clear All Data under Manage Storage Force stop it.
Restart Phone once more.
Turn off Airplane Mode. / Turn your internet back on
Open Google Play Store and you should be all set, no Not Google Play Certified Error or anything bad. You should be able to use Gmail, Youtube etc. You may not be able to use Google Pay as I have not tested it but believe it does not work.




Any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out.!

Thanks for the guide, I have an international version of the mate 40 which I want to try this with.

When following another guide, I uninstalled the backup app to install another version but it fails and says 'you already have a newer version of this app'. When going to my apps, there's no backup app installed and nothing comes up in HiSearch. When I go to backup and restore in settings, the screen is blank.

I've tried installing other versions of the backup app from my mate 20 but it comes up with the same version message.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

I have downloaded a copy of the downloads from another site.
I have an international version of the Mate 40 Pro (NOH-NX9)
I tried the steps above, some are a bit different like Back/Restore option. I have copied the backup file to the repository on an external USB drive where usually restore files are backed up and its showing when I try to restore it.
It does restore LZ Play app (The Blue G) , but does not load when executing saying (This device is not currently supported).. of course in Chinese language. From there I can't go any further.

I'd love to try an international version, but the file is no longer available: "We're sorry. You can't access this item because it is in violation of our Terms of Service."

Google doesn't like our attempts, please use some independent sharing space.

I have the same phone and the same issues. Would be really hulpfull if there was a fix. I tried all the guides (also the one above) and I'm always stuck on the "blue G" application that won't run properly...

Wow really google is saying my upload violates terms and conditions? Lame. I know it works for sure on Chinese variants I don't have an International one to test on. Makes me wonder if Huawei is purposely leaving this exploit open on the Chinese models?

At least for me, I didn't have to switch to a different backup app, I just used the one that came with my phone and it worked.

Seems google won't let me upload it for some reason again. Look up John Wang Huawei on youtube, his download should still work.

Same thing, My international version NOH-NX9 is also stuck by the LZPLAY not supporting the device.

中国版都可以使用 国际版不能用 我用的是国际版我的显示“谷歌服务助手不支持” 我朋友的是中国版本 他们的都可以!这是因为华为面对美国的制裁!不想让国际版的手机有不安全因素 所以国际版没有了BUG!中国版有 因为在中国使用 没人关注中国国内
The Chinese version can be used. The international version cannot be used. I am using the international version. My display is "Google Service Assistant does not support". My friend’s is the Chinese version. They are all available! This is because Huawei faces US sanctions! I don’t want the international version of the mobile phone to be insecure, so the international version has no BUG! There is a Chinese version because it is used in China and no one pays attention to in China phone.

Thx for the info, Huawei really need to prioritise fetching localised Apps (Bank App, Credit card App etc.) to feed App Gallery. I'm holding my trigger of Mate40 Pro until the availability of localised Apps or when GMS side loadable.

you're welcome !Yes! This is
because Huawei cannot use GMS because of US sanctions! So huawei developed himself HMS, so huawei loyal users will feel very bad! sort time no app to use !This requires a process and more developers join Harmony2.0! There are more mobile apps if the ecology is improved! Don't worry, I believe it will be soon!

As of the latest EMUI it is now impossible to use this method. I'm not sure if it still works prior to the recent firmware update but it completely broke google services for me. So looks like aurora and Amazon app store for me again ugh lol

For international version please try Duel Space as it do not need LZplay

    I have microg on my mate 40 Pro, gspace not working after a while, the account got logout... Not sure is microg issue or what.
    The best way is to wait for a new method for Mate 40 Pro and all Huawei devices based in EMUI 11 like the old LZPLAY method launched last december, 2019.

    Today Huawei released Gspace App on its App Gallery to solve this issue
    I'm installing it now and I'll keep you all updated.

    Me too on my Mate 30 Pro 5G. It's good but the best method was last December 2019 based on LZPLAY. I miss
