I successed update to HarmonyOS by changing the region into China in AppGallery, MyHuawei, and Languange Region.
I don't even clear cache them.
Do you have the global version? I have the global. I changed it in china 1 week ago,all in china except the smartphone language and until yet,nothing... :/
I'm from greece..maybe it isn't available in greece?! i don't know :/

Thx for message. It looks like some Indonesia region again ;-) Hope that they let us do the same sometimes. For EU users it probably doesn't work and we have to wait or flash ROM with another region.

What is the point to update to harmony if you can't install gms anyway, plus for eu phones i think you will lose some lte bends. I have mate 40 rs chinese Chinese and in some countries lte reception is worse, anyone successful instead gms?

I had harmony os for a day on p50 pro. A friend of mine installed me via otg. Good software but with some problems. Worst colours on display, lower sound on YouTube, calling, etc than emui and also I got some disconnects with my Bluetooth. On camera is lower on sharpness so for all of those, it was enough to return back to emui

Could your friend share the HOS installation method? Or maybe he has a distribution to install? What region are you in? For which region is your firmware released (C....)? I will be grateful for the answers!

Nahh he is far Away now. I'm at Greece. He added harmony os for jad-lx9 . Im sure that he changed region first. At otg had only the dload faulder. Then he typed a code in my screen with # and then he chose install. That's it installation finished completely and successfully

Sadly. Maybe there is an opportunity to contact him so that he describes in detail the procedure and where he got the firmware file?

My phone is P50 Pro, JAD-LX9 and EMUI is 12+. I just change the My Huawei App region to Hong Kong, then go to Service-Update, and update to Harmony OS 2.01. It works and installation very smooth. Now I am running HOS 2.0.1, all the installed apps so far so good.

Yes, very simple and straight forward. No need VPN, pull out simcard, turn off location, download firmware, or whatsoever.

1. Set region in system language & region to China. No need to change language.
2. Set country/region in App Gallery to China. Update app.
3. Set country/region in My Huawei to China. Update app.
4. Force stop both apps, and clear cache and clear data.
5. Restart phone.
6. Open both apps and make sure is set to China country/region.
7. Clear cache in My Huawei app before Tap the red button🔺🔴,
8. Tap blue "try it now" button in Chinese. It will go to system update page and automatically check for update. If no harmony os update available, try check for update every 24 hours is enough.
9. If I in Malaysia can updated, I believe everyone can update to the Harmony os using this method.
10. Don't change the country/region yet. Patience to check update and clear in app My Huawei cache every 24 hours 😁 no need to check every minute 🤪
Hi !

I have tried all these steps but no result. Also, In MY Huawei app, there is no red button. Instead of that, there is an HMOS icon to direct to download page which there is a blue button. My P50 Pro is JAD-LX9 Turkey device.

@wakleman hello neighbour! hailing from SG here.

thanks for your detailed steps listed in post #51, I waited for approx 6hours before I gotten the prompt to update to HarmonyOS.

Now it's just waiting for a way to load native GMS on this baby!

What is your device model exactly? Which country I mean ? and what was the previous EMUI version?

    bro...
    1. You CAN install native GMS on the Huawei P50 Pro on HarmonyOS. We just did it and it works perfectly. No Sandbox.
    2. You CAN'T Loose LTE Bands because of a different rom. This is just not true.

    bro, please tell me how to install native GMS on Huawei P50 Pro running Harmony OS? Mine is P50 Pro running Harmony OS 2.01. Currently I am using GSpace. Thanks.
    Bro. Try it with this video:

    And tell me if it worked. For us, it did work with some small adjustments. I'll try to publish a little guide in the next days.

    Edit: Guide is published. Unfortunately it seems to work only with the China Version of the p50 pro

    Found a way to update. Please follow the below tutorial.
    1. Download the folder https://mega.nz/folder/hMI1CQ7B#2oIjaFuEIKaxdu2h6--nqA (Mirrors are highly appreciated, so download and upload for others).
    2. Place this folder in a USB drive.
    3. Use an OTG cable to connect the USB drive to the P50 Pro.
    4. Dial *#*#2846579#*#* from the dial pad.
    5. Select option 4, and then option 1, press ok. The phone will restart and the upgrade will start.
    CAUTION
    ******** This process will wipe all the data.
    ******** I am not responsible for any bricks.

    Important Points
    If you have trouble downloading the whole folder from mega, download the files individually and place on the USB drive. Make sure the folder structure is same on the USB drive as in the download link.

    If you face error when copying files to USB drive, check the file system. Change the file system to either NTFS or exFAT.
