How To Guide Install Google Mobile Services (GMS) on EMUI 11 or Harmony OS 2.0 W/O rolling back to EMUI (updated on May 15 2022)

Search This thread
Hello.
I did your tutorial to the letter and I actually have the play store functional. However, when I launch gmail, it appears an error like: Gmail will not work without google play services, which is not compatible with your device.
Is this normal knowing that youtube, drive, google photos are functional?
Thank you for your reply
try uninstalling gmail, and Google Play Service, then re-install 10.apk
 
Hi guys trying to follow the guide but I am pretty illiterate with this stuff.

With step 8 of the guide, does it matter where I copy the GMS files on my phone? Is it all the files inside the GMS .zip?

I copied all the files in the Zip into internal storage, but during step 10 typing in Cd\111 in the command window just comes up with The system cannot find the path specified.

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks!

(Does anyone know if it's possible to remove some of the default Huawei apps like Huawei video and music etc on Harmony OS? I've looked at guides online but they seem to be EMUI based, would it also work on Harmony OS? I am using the Mate X2. Coincidentally it is also at the command window part with Cd\adb commands that I'm stuck at)
files 01 - 11, you can save them to any folders in you device. 111 folder, copy it to the root directory of you computer C drive. Huawei folder, copy it to the root directory of your device.

not possible to remove built-in huawei apps, unless you are using 3rd party apps to do so, but not recommended.

i will work on an video for the adb commands, stay tuned.

hi, i have p40 pro+ with the latest emui 12 running, i tried this method (even roll back to emui 11 from emui 13) but slways can't proceed on the app with the G icon and chinese pop-up button translated (i use my other phone to let Lens translated it) saying "sorry this device is not compatible" (or something like that, and i search everywhere and i just have a thought that this method only works with devices running harmony os.

likely is due to your device version. Global version may not suitable for this method.

Hello everyone,

after reading many guides I'm getting more and more confused, so I apologize if this has been asked before.

My situation: Huawei P40, C432 hw-eu version, EMUI 11
What I did so far:
1. Downgraded to an old Firmware
2. Used Googlefier
3. Result: Google Playstore works fine
4. Upgraded OTA (in several steps) to current Firmware EMUI 11

However, as far as I understand, after using gogglefier you will not get firebase push notification, right?

So my question is: With the approach described in this thread, will I be able to use google apps _and_ also receive firebase push notifications?

Second question: If yes, should I reset the device to get rid of everything googlefier did, or can I continue from here?

Thanks!

Huawei Mate X2
good morning. unfortunately it didn't work. I will have to reset the phone and restart the installation from the beginning.
Hello
Despite resetting my phone, I redid the manipulation of your tutorial twice and still the same problem. Play store works well except the Gmail app, google news, and contacts no longer sync...
Isn't there a blockage in repeating the manipulation several times in a row?
Thank you again for your help and again hats off for your contribution

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
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
5. Copy the balance files to somewhere in your mobile/tablet device (wherever you like)


Step by Step instructions:

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

2. Go to Settings---About Phone----“Quickly click the Build number at least 7 times (this guide here is using 2.0.0.231 (C00E230R9P3patch03) to activate the “Developer options”

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

7. Swipe down from the top of your screen and change the connection from “Charing via USB” to “Transfer files” mode. Enter the “Connection verification code” that is showing up on Hisuite screen from your phone onto the Hisuite on your computer

8. Copy the GMS files onto your device

9. In your computer, click ”WIN” key,then enter “cmd” to enter “Command Prompt” (skip this if using EMUI 11)

1) Cd\111

2) adb devices

3) adb uninstall com.huawei.localBackup

4) adb install Legacy.apk



11. after finish entering the commands from your computer end, return to your device. Install “Backup & restore” following the instruction from the phone. (skip this if using EMUI 11)

12. Disconnect your cable

13. Go to “Settings & updates” --- “Date & time”. Turn off “Set automatically” and change the date to July 10, 2020

14. Connect your USB-C storage device, wait for 30 seconds then go to “System & updates” ---“Backup & restore”, continue selecting “ALLOW”,then select “External storage”--- “USB storage”,select and restore “the 5:21am, Nov 11, 2019” backup; enter password: “a12345678”

Select “ALLOW” (you will delete this app after you have no issues running Google Suites), then “ACTIVATE”; You will see lots “!”, ignore that and click “开始下载”(start download),it will fail to download anything, ignore it as well.

18. Go to “Settings & updates” --- “Date & time”. Turn on “Set automatically”

19. The first time you click “SIGN IN“” will fail to open and flash exit, it is normal, click “SIGN IN” once again to login to your Google account. Once success, click “ I agree” and “CANCEL” (if you received error message “Sorry… You don’t have a network connection…” then restart your device and try again starting from “谷歌服务助手”,)

Do NOT even try to do anything until you finish this guide). You will find an error message “Authentication is required…”, this is normal. Ignore it.

24. return to home screen and uninstall MicroG

25. Go back to “Files”,Install “08_Google Play Services v19.2.75”

26. return to home screen and click “Pla yStore” (you may receive DF-DFERH-01 error, just click retry). You will hear lots of error notifications, ignore it.

29. Go to “Settings”---“Apps & services”---“Apps”---search keyword “Goo”, click the “4 docks” located at the right top corner”, select “Show system processes”, select “Google Service Framework”

(time sensitive here!!! needs to be quick and do not operate your device rather than following all the steps) click “FORCE STOP” (if it goes blue again, keep forcing it stop until it is grey), then click “Storage”---" CLEAR CACHE” and then “CLEAR DATA”, and then Press the power button---Restart your device right away

30. goto “Play Store”, you may receive DF-DFERH-01 error, this is normal and this is only time message, would not impact future operates

31. goto “DeviceID” check if the GSF number has become Unknown, if so, return to “Playstore” try click retry. If this error repeats, restart your device and wait for at least 2 mins before opening PlayStore again. If the error still shows up, unfortunately you will need to restart this guide again)

32. return to home screen, clear all the running tasks, then goto “DeviceID” and check if you can still have the GSF#

33. Go to“Settings”---“Apps & services”---“Apps”---search “Google Play services”, click “UNINSTALL”, you will be in “device administrator, then click “DEACTIVIATE AND UNINSTALL”

34. Go to “Files” and install “10_Google Play Services v20.12.14”

35. Return to main screen, restart your device and wait for at least 2 mins until the startup is done. If you hear tons of error notifications, then unfortunately you will need to restart this guide again

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

37. install Chrome

38. goto “DeviceID”, click on the “Copy“ icon and copy your GSF#

38. goto “Files” and open the link in chrome, scroll to the bottom, paste the GSF# in the text box and check mark the robot test, then click “register”, then you will see a bunch of number at the bottom, which it means your device has been registered successfully.

37. goto “Play store”, search “Google Play service” and install “Play Services Info“, then open it and click “PlayStore” and open by “Google Playstore”, update the Google Play Service

38. return to home screen and restart your device

39. open “Playstore” and check if everything works fine

All links work for me, I will try this method soon in a Matepad 11

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

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.

Hello guys!
I have a Nova 8i, it was shipped with EMUI 11 - Android 10, I'm stuck at error DF-DFERH-01 in PlayStore, when opening Device ID app, it doesn't show the GSF number, it says is restricted in Android 10.
I can logging into my account but can't pass the PlayStore error, is there any possibility to make it work?
Also, my device model is NEN-LX3 C605 - Build number: 11.0.1.188 (C605E4R1P5)
Thanks in advanced.

On my P50E (Harmony OS 2.0.1.140), Qualcomm 778G, I get stuck at Step 27 because Google Play Services won't Force Stop (button won't grey out no matter how many times I press), and the Uninstall button is unavailable, only a Disable option is present.

Any advice?

Hello, for those who followed all the steps and everything works but still gets tones from the google certification error try this it worked for me on mate 40pro+
Code:
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.

    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
    2
    I was Instaling this on a HarmonyOS 2 Matepad 11 and when I try to do the step 20 the google accunt n the settings app deletes itself with the uninstalled applicaton so I cannot continue. I am basically stuck here please help.
    Ps. When I add the google account there is no "CANCEL" button coming up on the screen returns directly to the googlefier app and the 1st option disappears.
