I was referring to the fact that Google services are not working on this phone.
In other words, you can't install Google services, Google Play, Google account, you can't log in to your gmail account, etc.
I installed MicroG to be able to use YouTube vanced with login. YouTube vanced goes smoothly.

I guess the signature spoofing is the issue on non-rooted devices with Microg. I cannot test this for now since i don't have any rooted ones: exactly!
We need a way to unlock bootloader, then root and then we can finally spoof the sign of firmware with another one from a smartphone Google Certified. And done!
Only microg is not a good solution, for example push notifications from Skype and Threema don't work cause the sign of firmware is not patched so our phones are still seen like Not Certified by Google!

We need unlock and root this our beautiful huawei.

I am also using microG. I installed Services Core, Services Framework Proxy and FakeStore. I couldn't add my Account as expected but I have Google device registration=On, Cloud Messageing=On and Google SafetyNet=On. Most gapps dependant applications seem to work except for just a few that require Google Play Store to be installed. So not being able to add my Account to microG doesn't seem to be much of a problem for me right now.

P.S.
For YouTube I use Vanced Manager where the adding the account is fine.

I'm pretty certain that there won't ever be any way to Unlock the Bootloader of our Mate 40.

I would like to start a new thread and discuss technical details of getting some of the GMS functionality for EMUI 11 devices with example of Mate 40 Pro.
I have installed the standard MicroG services and with the latest version Firebase notifications seem to work for the most of the application I use.
There is still a problem with login when using the standard MicroG GMS Core Service as it seems Google banned specific Huawei devices from logging in.
There is a fork/workaround/patch created by EloYGomeZ for the older version (I think it is even used by Googlefier) which allows log in but this version of the Core Service does not cover notifications.
Then there is another fork created by a different user jcchikikomori. So I took his version and created signed APK for my own testing. Both notification and login seem to work but the apps do not recognize the Google account. It is visible under the accounts and I can select sync options.

https://github.com/jcchikikomori/GmsCoreHuawei

Happy to discuss further with anybody who has additional ideas clues. Would be happy if jcchikikomori and @eloygomez could join the discussion here.

The final issue I am having is described here:
https://github.com/jcchikikomori/GmsCoreHuawei/issues/5
Is there any advantage over the standard microG with the one where you can login into your Google account? Is there any app that recognizes the Google account?
