Hi @crotoc

I have a Chinese Mate 30 Pro 5G with Google Services running nice. The issue is, I am not getting push notifications for anything. Is there a method other than hibernating the Google Services Framework with Icebox, and that may have notifications?

Not that I have come accross... And if you hibernate you will lose some other stuff such as Google location services.

Yes I know. The Play Store and Google location services are lost. So I would like to know if there is any method to get the push notifications without having to hibernate the services framework. Is there nothing currently alternative?

As I say I haven't found anything, I don't think it's possible it's one or the other it seems.

And if the issue of the failure at the notifications push is the "Google Services Framework" file, which must be hibernated ... Could some component of that file be modified to get the notifications without losing the Play Store or the services location?

I'm sure it could be patched but not something I know how to do. You would need to stop it doing its checkin but keep the service running somehow. You have given me a couple of ideas however. 😁😁

Iam on a P40 Pro with EMUI 11 and i am considering to freeze my GSF..

Just a few questions first...

Do system need to be clean (fresh from a reset) or can one do it with all the app that i have installed?

When i got my p40 pro i used phone clone and was trying to manage without google and quite a few of my apps did complian that they need Google play services to function properly...how will they be affected by having the GSF frozen?
Will to problems come backor will they be fine?

Really would like to get push-notifications working but maybe not to the cost of having many apps not working...

1 for frozen no need reset
2 your current applications will work normally even except maybe some application that requires a rental (for me everything is fine)

Thanks for clearing that up 👍

Another question that came to mind is that according to guide to freeze GSF you should remove your Google account...
Is it then possible to add it back to the phone when icebox is installed and GSF is frozen?

on the guide you must not remove your google account but just the G application and the account app it does not delete the installed account so it will just freeze the GFS
attention you will not be able to unfreeze if you do so you will get error messages so it will have to be frozen again

Thanks for all the help. Gsf in now frozen and push notifications work great (some of my apps needed to be reinstalled for it to work)
My Gmail app notifying me i a sec. after a new mail is recived..
Ill even got the Google app installed again and it seems to work normal..(just use it as default search app in nova luncher).
This must be the best way to get a desent working Google installation on this phone. 👍

I do however have a little problem with Aurora store..
Sometimes when i want to install an app and hit the download button it starts queue the download and after about a sec just stop (download button appears again). Only way to fix this seems to be to force stop + clear cach and data. After that it will download 1-2 apps and then its back to square one again..
Is this a known bug or do i need to change some settings?

After installing gs via googlefier, services were working great. With icebox notifications as well.
After going through the various updates (to 11.0.0.176) I unfroze to get back to gstore.
Once I do that I get pop-ups :"This device isn't Play Protect certified : Google apps and services can't run on this device".
gstore is working regardless of the error messages.
Re-froze and everything back to normal.
The only workaround I found was Aurora.
Is that just me ? / is there a better solution ?

That's as good as it gets... Freeze gsf and everything works bar the play store. Unfreeze to do updates or installs if you don't wanna use aurora then have to freeze again.

    Working Push Notifications

    Here is a Guide how Push Notification are Working on a P40 Pro!

    First you have to decide what is more important to you, either Push Notification or the PlayStore.
    Both together do not work at the Moment.

    I myself live without the PlayStore and use the AuroraStore instead.

    So here is everything I did to make the Push Notifications work:

    The requirement for Push Notification to work, is a Working PlayStore without Error Pop-ups.
    If you have that, then you can skip this step.

    Step 1:
    For Install Google Play Services I used this video and the files attached (I tried several files/video/tutorials, but this one worked every time):
    The video is in spanish? but it doesn’t matter, just follow the shown steps.
    Video Tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_5ZKHvCyS8
    Files from the Video: https://mega.nz/file/6dwiUSpI#SZeYsm6BQHJqrxga4bPXtJJhqUzAVS73Ux_a8xXyYqc

    Getting Push Notificaion to work:
    Step 2:
    All required files are in the zip.
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/12dcTEoSDwsZJk1Dero4rKnoPbZokGUpB/view?usp=sharing

    1. If everything went well, there are no errors and the market is working. Download Ice Box (developed by Ruoxin He) from the PlayStore. (Or use the one inside the Zip)
    2. Delete the Applications "G", Google Accounts, Device Info.
    3. Install Minimal ADB on PC
    4. HiSuit must be installed on the PC. You can download it from the official site. https://consumer.huawei.com/en/support/hisuite/
    5. Launch IceBox
    6. Click 2 times on the arrow in the lower right corner
    7. In the proposed list, select line 3 "Simple ADB"
    8. We connect the Phone to the PC where Minimal ADB and HiSuit are already installed.
    9. Choose "data transfer" on the Popup on your Phone.
    10. Go Settings - About the phone - click on the build number 5 times - see the message You have become a developer.
    11. Next we go settings - System and updates - For developers, search for "USB Debugging" and turn it on. ATTENTION! Hisuit started on the computer and a code appears on the phone, just minimize the window that opens.
    12. On your Phone allow the debugging connection in the popup window.
    13. Launch IceBox again.
    14. Launch Minimal ADB on the PC.
    15. At the command prompt, enter: adb shell sh /sdcard/Android/data/com.catchingnow.icebox/files/start.sh
    Press Enter. "Success" should appear, if not, then you did something wrong.
    16. In IceBox, double-click on the arrow, then select line 3 "Simple ADB"
    17. Click "GOT IT", then go to the SYSTEM tab on top. On the Pop up a warning click "GOT IT". Then tap in the right upper corner on the Search Icon. Search for "FRAME". Select the Google Services Framework, click Frost in the menu below. Close the application, reboot the device.
    18. After the restart install the AuroraStore.apk oder download it from the official site: https://auroraoss.com/
    19. Launch AuroraStore and at startup, be sure to select an anonymous account!
    20. Search for "Push Notification Tester" and install it.
    21. Launch "Push Notification Tester" and press on Start. It should look like this:
    22. If "Register for Push Notification" has a red X, then go into Settings -> Apps -> Search for "google" -> Show System Apps -> Select "Google Service Framework" and hit "Activate".
    23. Launch "Push Notification Tester" again and press on Start. If it looks like the picture above, then repeat Step 13. - 18.

    24. After restart Launch "Push Notification Tester" and press on Start it should still look like the picture above.

    Congratulations you have working Push Notifications.
    If you open now the PlayStore , you will get a connection error.
    The error will remain as long as "Google Service Framework" is frozen by IceBox.

    As mentioned at the beginning. Only the Playstore or the Push Notification can work. Not both together!


    Thanks for reading. Hope i could help someone.

    Seems like some have got it working, see here:

    I wrote that. It was to disable the notification nags you get when you get GMS working - it is not in relation to receiving notifications from apps. I will look into this today though.

    Well, aside from installing some apps that might be stealing your credit card details and username/passwords for other apps there is nothing else really ...

    I was too tempted to buy the P40 pro after previously owning the P30 pro, but the lack of google services made me change my mind. It's a brilliant phone, sadly.

    if you really thinking about seucirty or privacy you wont be using google at all that just doesnt mix. im sure google knows more about you than your parents at the moment.
    2nd are you not using 2fa for your bank or your accounts? im sure even somebody tries to login your account with 2fa enabled they have like 0.1% they can access it and make payments for you.

    Hi everyone.

    I'm writing this for everyone having problems with notification from some apps.

    Right now I not receive notification from:
    1. Twitter - not at all. And I can't go into setting for Push notifications
    2. Gmail - that's funny. I receive one notification a day around 8-9PM.
    3. Youtube - no notifications
    4. LinkedIn - no notfications

    And some specific apps for my country like: Inpost and OLX.

    Share what's your experience with that. Maybe we will find solution.

    is autosync issue the source ?

    Hi guys

    Also installed GMS on my p40 Pro using this method : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYOU_YxrHhc

    Everything worked fine, no error notifications (Google Sign in or Play Store), then did my Phone Clone to restore all my apps from former phone. And then few hours later, sign in and Play Store notifications erros went back. Eveything works fine on my phone except some notifications. Also I didn't deactivate error notification from google as they are poping up only few times a day (2/3 times).

    But I'm not receiving notfication from Gmail or Youtub, also Discord and reddit.
    Also for Whatsapp, if app is not opened in background I may not receive notifications.
    EDIT : forgot to mention that notifications from Google Agenda works at least

    Except that all is great !

    Then I also noticed that on Settings > Users & accounts > Google, there is an issue with auto sync of all services, but when you trigger it manually for all services, then it triggers all Gmail notifications you missed out for example. But still no notifications for others apps mentioned above.
    So I was thinking I could add a 3rd party app to force sync, and actually someone posted a solution to that on the forum (https://forum.xda-developers.com/huawei-p40-pro/help/huawei-p40-pro-gms-poor-google-account-t4086183) but finally it doesn't work for me and it doesn' trigger Gmail notifications as I thought it would be...so i'm stuck here at the moment and I'm impatient to find a complete fix for that or a new 100% perfect method to install GMS.

    Cheers
