This is to show you how to get Google Play on the Huawei Enjoy 5, which standard Chinese Stock ROM does not have Play store enabled.

Note: when unlocking the phone and installing custom recovery, it might mean that the OTA updates don't work anymore.
Since we have not yet had an update since I installed this, I could not check, but this is what is said in the Huawei unlock site...


Credits: my sincere thanks to andrik22, who guided me through the whole process... :)


Prerequisites:
Huawei Enjoy 5 phone (TIT-AL00)
Huawei Unlock tool (attached)
ADB drivers (attached)
ADB / Fastboot software (attached)
CWM Recovery file (attached)
GAPPS Pico for ARM64, Android 5.1 --> Download from Opengapps.org

Steps to complete:
1. Install ADB Drivers
2. Unzip ADB software in C:\adb
3. Unzip CWM_Recovery.img in C:\adb
4. Copy the GAPPS file into C:\adb

C:\adb should look like this now:


5. Now got to the phone and write down:
Settings -->about phone --> Status--> IMEI 1 + Serial Number


6. Connect phone by USB to computer
7. Enable USB debugging on phone --> slide down the notification area and touch "USB connection options", then on the bottom of the screen enable "USB Debugging"
7a. Copy the GAPPS file from C:\adb to the root of the external SD card on your phone

8. Unzip and open the Unlock tool (you might need to disable the virus checker, as this will be flagged and deleted, at least this was the case with me) --> fill in IMEI 1, get Product ID, write that down.


9. Go to the Huawei site to get your unlock code (log in with Facebook, or Huawei ID, fill in the required information product type = Smartphone, product ID = TIT-AL00, serial number from the phone, IMEI code, Product ID). Your unlock code will be below in Red)


10. Startup command prompt (Windows key + R, type cmd, enter)
11. In command prompt, type "cd \adb" to get to the adb directory
12. In command prompt check if device is recognized (typing "adb devices" in the command prompt should show you this)
13. Now reboot the phone into fastboot by typing "adb reboot bootloader"
14. This should reboot the phone into fastboot mode (black screen, only showing "fastboot>" on the bottom
15. In the command prompt, type "fastboot devices" to see if the device is recognized.
Your screen should look something like this:


The next command will unlock your phone AND make a hard reset... if any data or settings would need to be preserved, please make a backup!
16. Now type in the command prompt:"fastboot oem unlock XXXXX" where XXXX is the unlock code you got from the website
17. Then type in command prompt: "fastboot reboot". After this, your phone will reboot and reset.
18. When Phone is rebooted, make sure USB debugging is on again (same as point 7)
19. Now reboot the phone into fastboot by typing "adb reboot bootloader"
20. This should reboot the phone into fastboot mode (black screen, only showing "fastboot>" on the bottom
21. In the command prompt, type "fastboot devices" to see if the device is recognized.
22. Now we are going to flash CWM Recovery: type in command prompt: "fastboot flash recovery CWM_recovery.img"
23. reboot into recovery by typeing into command prompt: " "fastboot reboot" while holding VOL+ on the phone.
24. When the options screen on the phone appears, press VOL- to select the recovery mode. This will boot into CWM recovery.
25. In CWM recovery, select "install ZIP" and select "From Memory card" and select the Open Gapps file we have copied there in step 7a.
26 When flashing is done, type into the command prompt: "adb reboot" to reboot the phone.

This should reboot the phone. first 5 minutes it might be very slow as it is optimizing (Google) apps, but then Google Play store should be working on your phone!

Attention!
When installing SuperSU you can NOT get ROOT!!!
You will receive a cyclic reboot. And for the restoration of the phone need flash original recovery, and then install the firmware version B128 from the official site (update.zip).


Links for firmware version B128:
TWRP recovery
Original Recovery
Official page TIT-AL00
Firmware version C00B128 from the official site and mirror. Size: 1,2 Gb (The Chinese have made a mistake, inside the archive file located in the upgrade "dlaod" - is wrong, the folder should be called dload.)

Firmware version C00B132 from the official site and mirror. Size: 1,2 Gb

Firmware version C00B135 from the official site and mirror. Size: 1,2 Gb

Firmware from the official site installed only from original recovery, so if you have installed CWM recovery, you must first restore the original as it is written above, and already from it to make a clean install.

Can't open the Huawei Unlock tool...

Thanks for the guide but there's a crucial step that seems not to work: the "Huawei Unlocker.zip" tool only contains an adb.exe, fastboot.exe, and a few non-Windows-executable files (busybox and 2 .dll's) so how do we execute this tool?

8. Unzip and open the Unlock tool (you might need to disable the virus checker, as this will be flagged and deleted, at least this was the case with me) --> fill in IMEI 1, get Product ID, write that down
=> How to "open the Unlock tool"? It seems to be missing from the .zip file... could you re-upload somehow?

Thanks again!

It worked perfectly now. Google Apps are installed. Thanks a lot, guys!

One more gotcha: the Huawei Unlocker.exe didn't work for me when executed directly from the .zip file, even though it's only one file so I expected that to work... Perhaps it self-extracts... Anyway, you need to unpack the .zip file first and then execute the unlocker .exe :)

The same model TIT-AL00 announced to India with the name of Honor Holly 2 Plus.
Review
This means that you can install the firmware, which has services Googe.
Hey Andrik,

do you know where we can download that firmware?
and did you test that already? might be good to have a more westernized ROM available, so also the EMUI badges might work for whatsapp for example... ;)

Manufacturer again changed the method of obtaining the unlock code.
You need to go to the phone account Huawei. For example, Huawei club, HiApp or Huawei Cloud+.
The report said that you did not go to these applications for more than 14 days.
The second option - for unlock to write their e-mail data (down - contact us).

Unfortunately, there is only a version of the installation software VPN, included in the service with Huawei phone with the expectation of 14 days.
I have not tested it should work in theory.
Perhaps you can write in support of Huawei in your country - that they may request an unlock code from colleagues in China.

Hi, I still have not solved my problem, so I have one question.
Will it be possible in the near future root this device?
Or i can trow it in the trash.

Even if it will be able to get root, too, need to unlock the bootloader on it.
You have tried to write an e-mail?

Send an email to [email protected] Email them the following. They usually email you back and tell you to do go online to unlock your bootloader and it should work on the website, or never email you back:

Hello. I keep getting an error when trying to unlock my phone on the unlock page.

Model: TIT-AL00 (Or whatever model you have)
Serial: Put in your phones serial number here. (You get this in About phone, Status)
IMEI: Put in your phones IMEI number here. (You get this in About phone, Status, it's IMEI1)
Product ID: (Go into your phone dialer and dial *#*#1357946#*#* and it will give you your Product ID, or use Huawei Unlocker)
