After several weeks of waiting Huawei has finally deigned to distribute several test units of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro to several of the most important technology media in the country. The question about the compatibility of the terminal with Google Services is sown. We will can install applications like Google Play, WhatsApp or Google Maps and, in short, applications that depend on the Google API in the new member of the Mate family?
The answer is that s, although the process to reach it is quite arduous. We have had the opportunity to test the terminal in hand and this time we will show you how to proceed step by step with the installation of Google Serviceswithout resorting toroot.
What do I need to install Google Services on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro
The previous steps to install Google Services are simple, although somewhat complicated. Since we will use an external application, the first thing we will have to do is enable external source installation permissions through the Security section in Settings.
Next we will need to have an external memory to download the necessary installation files, which it can be a USB stick or a memory card.
Now we will only have to download the files from the following link provided by the EloyGomezTV YouTube channel. It is advisable to download these same files through a computer and then transfer them to external memory, but not before unzipping the ZIP file of the original download.
With everything ready, we'll just have to connect memory to Huawei Mate 30 or Mate 30 Pro and proceed with the steps that we will detail below.
Steps to install Google applications on the Huawei Mate 30 and 30 Pro
Once we have connected the memory card or the USB skewer via phone adapter, the next step is to access its content through the Huawei file browser and open filecom.lzplay.helper.apk that we can find in the folder NEEDED within GAPPS.
Make a backup copy of the LZPlay application
After installing the APK file on the phone the next step we will have to perform is based on make a backup copy of the application that contains the APK in question in the external memory. As simple as going to the Backup and restore section in System Settings and updates.
Before proceeding with the copy of the data it is very important select external storage (memory card or USB) when EMUI asks us about the destination of the restoration.
Next we will uncheck the System Settings option and we will press on the option of Applications and data to select next the application with Chinese characters that we have just installed. After this click on Backup and indicate the following text string when the assistant requires a password to tape the data:
Replace the files in the backup with those in the folder REQUIRED
If everything has gone smoothly, we will most likely find a folder with the name of Huawei inside the external storage. Inside this folder we will find another folder with the name of Backup which we will have to access to replace some of the files that are inside.
Going back to the GAPPS folder that we have downloaded, we will access the folder NECESSARY, where we will select the following files to copy:
Finally we will paste and replace both records in the following location inside the folder Huawei / Backup:
- Huawei Mate 30 Pro (character string) / backupFiles1 / folder-with-the-date-of-the-copy /
Restore the backup on the Huawei Mate 30
The next logical step is to restore the backup in the internal memory of the mobile. How? Performing the reverse process through the Backup and restore settings.
To do this, we will restore the copy we just made by accessing the aforementioned section again by entering the password indicated in the previous step (a12345678). Of course, the fate of the restoration must be performed in the internal memory from the external memory.
And install Google Services manually
We have everything ready to install Google Services on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. To do this, we will open the LZPlay application that will be displayed with Chinese characters on the Android Desktop.
Before clicking on the button of the installation button, prior acceptance of the terms and conditions of use, we will have to return to the contents of the GAPPS folder hosted in the external memory; more specifically to the EMUI 9.1.1 Google Pack folder.
Within this folder we can see several executable files. Before proceeding with its installation we will return to the LZPlay application and now we will accept the installation of Google Services.
Again we will have to go to the folder EMUI 9.1.1 Google Pack and install all services in the order in which they are displayed, that is, first the first application, second the second and so on until the last service. And that's it, we will have all the Google Services available to us.
The Play Store closes when I install an application, what do I do?
When downloading and installing applications from the Play Store it is very likely that the store suffers forced closures. Fortunately, the installation process will be maintained and the applications will be installed with total normality in the telephone.
Otherwise it is recommended start the download again by opening the application in question. We can also delete the data from the Play Store through the Applications section in Settings. In the Storage option we can delete both the cache and the application data, something that should solve, to a greater or lesser extent, the problem of downloads from the Play Store, in the absence of a simpler solution.
