Bootloader locked. So, almost impossible to change to global firmware. (also too big difference by price between Chinese and Global version). So, they will do there best to not allow to put Global on Chinese.

True. In fact I wouldn't even try flashing the Global ROM (when it's available) on a Chinese variant, it would more than likely result in a bricked phone. And unbricking Honor/Huawei devices is a real nightmare.

Hey guys I managed to get it to work on my Magic 3 pro plus. The guy below on Facebook did it for me, he charges $50 but it is now working perfectly. Everything works except for Google drive, but you can get Google drive to work with gspace. My Magic 3 Pro plus is finally not a brick anymore

Any idea why Google Drive doesn't work?

I also managed to get it work through this guy. The only issue I am facing is the Contact Syn which is not working

Hi friends!!! Same with me. That man really made excellent job! My Pro Plus now working perfectly (in my case GDrive working!). He spend around 3 hours (i am in China now and he need to work with VPN - sometimes it is too slow and we need to start again from 0).

So, he very professional in this questions and very nice men. Highly recommended ! 50$ by paypal - in my mind for this job ok.
(as i understood in this week already 7 phones done by him. He have a lot of videos on YouTube about GMS - just put 'renz dagz tv' in search on YouTube).

    I did a factory reset and followed the steps from the start.
    The same issue (can't install 08.GMS) happens here, I'm looking into this.
    I'll inform you if there's any progress.
    Magic UI version may be affecting...

    I followed all the steps but faced the following: (Magic 3 pro plus - Chinese variant

    - Couldn't remove Google Play Services as there was no "Uninstall" button, instead there was "disable". So, I used adb to remove it. Did the restart but couldn't reinstall file no. 8 (google play services ) as it gives me an error message that it needs a shared library. didn't find any solution to this. If anyone who can help regarding this
    - install old GMS again,
    - uninstall old GMS using adb,
    - try installing new GMS (No. 08)
    - if you can't install new GMS (saying "need a shared library" or "newer version is already installed"), restart your device,
    - try installing new GMS (No. 08)

    You may have to do it several times.

    As written in the article I referred to, this method is not stable.
    When I have spare time, will do a factory reset, and retry installing GMS.

    Still no hope. Now stuck with not being able to install either old GMS or the new one. Did that several times and I ended in with the same senario. will keep trying

    screenshots please.
    i've tried everything i could, every single instruction i found online. nothing worked.
    steps, links to the APKs here will be extremely welcome.

    otherwise your post is more of boasting than helping the community.

    nothing personal!
    Which screenshot do you want?
    I'm very new to this community, I'm not familiar with the rules in this community yet.
    If my post sounded like a boast, it is not what I intended.

    This method worked for me:

    if you can't uninstall Google Play Services, try uninstalling via adb:

    Code:
    adb shell pm uninstall --user 0 com.google.android.gms

    you may be required to restart your device after executing the command above if you can't install another Google Play Services.

    Hi, I managed to install GMS on my Magic3 Pro+ (Chinese variant).
    Since Magic UI is very similar to EMUI, LZplay method still works.
    Notifications via FCM also work. After successful installation of GMS, I disabled GSF to achieve it.

    I don't have the device yet, but I will order it. It's cheaper in Asia, so I don't want to spend the 1500 euros. Unfortunately, I don't know the Magic UI. what about the bootloader?

    Huawei closed the boot loader program in 2018. Now I wonder what about Honor and the bootloader? But I think it will be possible soon .. to install GMS. I can only recommend the APP "Gspace" for the transition.

    it almost feels like GMS Nativ has been installed. At huawei it took a while to find a solution, but I think we will get a comparable goggle for Honor with Android 11 at some point. But of course it depends on whether enough people want to buy the device.

    Unfortunately I couldn't see in the developer options whether the bootloader can be unlocked or not ???? But I can at least say one thing about Huawei, all devices that received Harmony directly, i.e. never had an EMUI. there is no installation of GMS at the moment. But with Harmony the problem is that it is basically still Android 10 and not 11. So the GSF cannot be used
