I ordered a Matepad11 last night not knowing about the Google stuff. Would this work if I did everything on the guide or should I return it? I don't want to use any device without Google services. I don't know about model number but I'm pretty sure it's not going be Chinese, as I am in Europe. I googled what the #ModelNumber would be in my country but there is no result, and I am not planning on opening the cargo box in case I need to return it. What should I do? I read some people here saying they'll try it on Matepad 11 but they didn't update.

The more I research more impossible it seems. I'll just return it and get my money back.

Thanks OP for the great tutorial. A friend of mine recently received 2pcs of the Honor 20 Pro HJC-LX9 on Magic UI 4.0 and I spent the whole day trying to install GMS on the devices. So far, GMS is up and running even though I have not reregistered the GSF ID on Chrome.

Any risk in running an update from .113 to .130?

I am trying to install on my P50 Pro International version with HarmonyOS 2.0.
I am stuck when trying to open Purple G app saying that device is not supported, is it because of the international version? even though i had HarmonyOS 2.0 installed on my P50 Pro.

Anyone has the same issue?

Hello guys, bought new MATE XS 2 and successfully installed GMS on it and working perfect here.

Do we have a solution to update Google Play Services always to the latest released version ?

You can find the video instructions in the following:

Video of successfully installed Google apps:


*** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
Do NOT give up if your first attempt fails. Factory reset is recommended if failure happens, try again and I am sure you can get it done by following this guide, however you will need to make sure you follow all the steps one by one, and do NOT try jumping. Even the button of "OK" , "Open", "Done" or selecting app from Muti Task Manager instead of re-enter apps from the Home screen at different timing or sequence may impact the result.


This method has been tested on the following devices (model# ending with ANxxx or ALxxx after "-") running on Harmony OS 2.0:

Mate X Series: X2
Mate 40 Series: 40 / 40 Pro / 40 Pro+
Mate 30 Series: 30 4G / 30 5G / 30 Pro 4G / 30 Pro 5G,
P40 Series: P40 / 4G / Pro / Pro+
Mate Pad Series:Pro WIFI / Pro 5G

Note: international versions may not compatible

In this video, I am showing you how to Install Google Mobile Services (GMS) directly on Huawei Harmony OS 2.0 without rolling back your devices to EMUI 11 / 10 or even earlier. (this video is using Mate X2 as an example).



Preparation:

1. Download the ZIP file (if the links are no longer working, let me know)
or

2. Extract “GMS_2022-05.zip”
3. Copy foler "111" onto your computer C drive root directory
4. Copy "huawei" folder onto your mobile/tablet device root directory

Step by Step instructions:

1. Backup your data then Factory Reset your device (phone/tablet), ensuring it is in a clean condition

3. Go to “System & updates”, and turn off the ”App Guard” (skip this if using EMUI 11)

4. Return to Settings, at the top search section, enter keyword “HDB”, select and turn on “Allow connection via HDB”

5. Go to “Settings & updates” --- “Developer options”, turn on “USB debugging”

6. Use your cable to connect your device with computer

2) adb devices

3) adb uninstall com.huawei.localBackup

36. Open “Play Store”, check if it is working fine. If so, congrats but not done yet we need to move onto the final steps to ensure your device can pass the Google certify checks in the near future, so then you can feel free to update Google Play or other google related apps

Great Thanks @ThatsYisy, A perfect guide and works like a charm. I have the greatest appreciation for your work. I have Mate x2 and it works flawlessly. The device gets registered. All success. 1 or 2 points if you can guide me :
1. My google contacts don't sync with the device.. is it normal.
2. When I register 2nd Gmail address which has 2 step verification does gets registered after verification but it give lots of notifications which does not go even after completing all steps. Without this email which is a Gmail commercial address i.e @jsbutran.com, all steps work perfectly. Am I doing something wrong?

Anyways great appreciation for your work.
I have the same issue with a Gmail commercial address. Any solution?

Dear creator,
First of all, thank you for great job and my best wishes!
Have few questions about the procedure and few common questions.
About procedure:
- chapter 8 - which exact files from GMS folder and where we should copy to our device? To which device (USB storrage or phone)?
- chapter 14 - how will this backup “the 5:21am, Nov 11, 2019” will appear on our empty USB storrage device. I did all steps before 14, and had a message that i don't have any reserv copies.

Common questions:
1. I updated my HW p40 to 12 EMUI version. Is this method is also alive for 12 EMUI?
2. If i will have success and will install Google Services, will i see my HW P40 in the list of devices in google account as i can see all my phone, TV for now?
3. If i will roll back to EMUI 11 to install Google services on HW p40, will have success, and after that will update the phone to EMUI 11, will these google services be alive after update?

For now i have Huawei p40 updated to EMUI 12. I didn't have success and downgraiding to EMUI 11 to try from the beginning. Thats why have all these questions.

Thank you in advance.

Vasyl.

your procedure question: you can download and extract the file from the link provided, then you would need to copy the "huawei" folder to the root directory of your external storage

you common questions:
1. EMUI 12 is not tested, you may want to roll back to EMUI 11 or upgrade that to HarmonyOS before attempting to use this method, please note that if your device is global version device, this method may not work for you
2. yes
3. you can update your phone normally unless there is major change from Google

this method would not brick your phone, feel free to work on it.

1) global version may not work
2) make sure you have downgrade "Backup/Restore" to V11, and make sure you are not clicking update again once you open "Backup/Restore" before restoring the backup file

Had the same situation on EMUI 11.0.0.246 and stucked on step 16 with the same picture.
Now rolled back to EMUI 11.0.0.151 using HiSuite Proxy as it was not possible to roll back with just HiSuite.
Will try again now, hope will pass step 16 and Google Service Assistant will now work.
Just have two more questions:
1. On the step 38 you said: "goto “Files” and open the link in chrome...". Please, explaine which link we should open with Chrome. If i will just go to "files" i will see all my files in root directory, no link. Which link we should open, from which file?
2. During all process, as i understood, to prevert automatic update, it is better to turn off automatic update of system in "System & Updates". Do we also need to turn off wifi and disconnect the phone from internet till some step? If yes, on which step we should turn on Wifi again? On which sptep we can turn on automatic updates again?

even the latest EMUI 11 should work, no need to roll back further. If your device is global version, does not matter EMUI or Harmony, this method would not work.

the link is https://www.google.com/android/uncertified/

after you finish installing GMS, your device should be able to use automatically update with no issues, no need to turn it off.

    Hi,
    This is a very nice article, congratulations !
    However, I would need an extra help, I am blocked at step 10, indeed, when I am typing Cd\111 and then click on "enter" computer says that "Le chemin d'accès spécifié est introuvable" (the specified path way was not found), any suggestion ?
    The easiest way is to go to the destinated folder (111) and hold shift and right click. Then click on "open PowerShell/CMD here"

    If it opens PowerShell, simply type "CMD" and hit enter and you're in CMD
    Then you can proceed with uninstalling the backup app
