How to install Google services on Huawei with Gbox

Use Google Services (GMS) on your device Huawei? Gbox is the way!

The functioning of the app is very similar to the old Gspace, which is an emulator space for GMS.

There are, however, some big news: Gbox is completely free, it is free of any advertising, loading times are much faster, the battery drain is reduced, we also receive notifications and we can have all the links of the apps we have installed even outside of Gbox! AND our privacy is safe, it is stated that no data is collected!

How to install Google services on Huawei ?

Gbox allows us to log in to the Play Store and use a large part of the Google suite without particular problems: we access a Maps, Drive, Gmail, Chrome with our user without too many complications, thanks also to the customized apps developed by the Gbox development team, but above all it gives us the possibility of finding those apps that just don't want to know how to work without GMS. It's not completely bug-free and not all applications work yet, but it's a significant step forward: just think that the Poste Italiane apps work correctly!

Pre-Installation Requirement

In order to correctly install Gbox, first of all you need to do a little check on yours smartphone.

Let's download the AIDA64 app from Appgallery (LINK), open the app, press "Processor" and read what is reported under "Set of instructions":

  • If you find the writing 64-bit ARMv8-A, then we can install the 64bit version;
  • If you find the writing 64-bit ARMv8-A (32-bit mode) you will need to install the 32bit version.

GBOX installation

  • Disable Appgallery automatic updates: This is to prevent Gbox from automatically updating to later versions which, currently, have some problems.
  • Download the version of Gbox that fits your device
    • 64-bit version: LINK (version 1.3.27 – 64 bit)
    • 32-bit version: LINK (version 1.3.27 – 32 bit)
  • Open Gbox and grant the permissions it asks for.
  • On the Gbox home page, hold down the PlayStore icon and choose the "Create Shortcut" item: you will then have the direct link to the PlayStore in your home (a link that will remain until you choose to uninstall Gbox).
  • Now open the PlayStore, log in with your Google account (you will receive an email with the access notification).

By accessing the PlayStore, you can download applications: the advice is to use only those apps that actually don't work without google services.

After installation, Gbox will always ask you if you want to create a link to the app in the home of your device.
