Well that's disappointing.... People in Europe with P30 pro and P40 pro have started receiving the EMUI 12 beta and they have found it is still Android 10 ! There are a couple of Reddit posts about it.

Many users have expected/are still expecting the EMUI 12 to come with Android 11. However, the Android 11 used by Huawei is AOSP (Android Open Source Project), which does not include GMS, the Android 10 we have now does have GMS. If EMUI 12 came with the AOSP Android 11, the P30 Pro would lose GMS. (Sibce Huawei does not have a license from Google for the Google Mobile Services any more), That would be definitely disappointing for many-many users.​

Oh I see. That's interesting. I didn't know that AOSP Android 11 cannot be released and work with the already licensed GMS services that P30 series have. I mean, I know people who got HarmonyOS on their Chinese P30 models that had Android 10 based - EMUI 11, and they say that GMS are still working fine. So, I find it strange that with the upgrade to AOSP Android 11 the GMS would stop working.

EDIT: I guess if it's true that HarmonyOS is based in Android 10, then it kind of makes sense that GMS still work with that OS, on the phones that had them officially when they were released.

Thanks for the info !

Maybe the EMUI 12 does not contain a script that removes GMS, so you can use the existing one. However this takes no guarantee, so it needs some experiment done by someone else to prove it.

But, no one knows, maybe they will do something unexpected, like putting microG on it, who knows?

Hello,

Unfortunately, the beta testing projects are open in a few select countries in each region. I don't remember exactly now but once I read about the list of European countries which usually participate in the beta projects (Huawei Central). As far as I can remmeber, Germany and Portugal are on the list. Maybe you should try either of these countries.​

    You guys still dont understand that updates are released based on imei batches. Imagine if they would release the update for 10 milion people in the same time , all downloading 4gb in the same time, they would need facebook's servers at least. They are releasing batches for each country/areas in the world to see if there are any issues/reports then they can release it to bigger batches. Its simple: no imei whitelisted by huawei, no update

    All those vpn, hicare and other stuff that everyone is trying is pure bullsh*t.

    Silviu, do you care to post a How to guide on using ADB for Huawei phones? It would really help me a lot in order to safely slim down the number of apps and services preinstalled on my phone.

    Ok, i'm gonna do a miniguide with how to and the apps i removed ;)
