Huawei Tips And Tricks


Fix The Notification Problem On Huawei P40

The trade war between the United States and China has been a real headache for tech companies. Of all the cases, the most relevant is Google’s veto of Huawei and the impossibility of using its services on the Chinese manufacturer’s devices.

For months there have been multiple solutions to install them, but in general, they maintain a problem: the notifications of many apps do not load. However, We dedicated ourselves to testing different methods and came up with a near-perfect one. We show guide you on how to fix the notification problem on the Huawei P40 and other Honor and Huawei phones without Google services.

Why can’t you see the app notifications on your Huawei or Honor?

Step by step to solve the notification error on the Huawei P40

The method to return the notifications to all the applications of your Huawei is to use IceBox, an app that freezes the Google services framework. When you do this, Google services fail the SafetyNet check, but the notifications work again.

A disadvantage? IceBox disables the Play Store while it is active, but you can always deactivate it and have it again. With this clear, we begin:

Step 1:

Step 2:

  • Install IceBox on your mobile. You can do it directly from the Play Store or using the APK included in the ZIP from step one.

Step 3:

  • Uninstall the “G”, “Google Accounts” and Device Info applications.

Step 4:

Step 5:

  • Activate the Developer Options on your Huawei. To do this you must go to the settings of your smartphone, then to “About phone” and press 5 times on the compilation number, or until it says “You are already a developer”.

Step 6:

  • Enable USB debugging. In the settings menu go to “System and updates”, then to “Developer options” and look for the corresponding option.

Step 7:

  • Connect your mobile to the computer through the USB port.

Step 8:

  • Press “Transfer files” in the floating window that appears on your Huawei.

Step 9:

  • HiSuite should run on your PC and code should appear on your mobile, it is to accept USB debugging. Check “Always allow on this computer“, confirm and move on.


HiSuite will notify you that it will be installed on your mobile. Just close the window on both your computer and your mobile and that’s it.

Disable the Google Services Framework On Huawei And Get The Notifications From Your Apps Again:

Disable the Google Services Framework On HuaweiStep 10:

  • Launch IceBox on your mobile.

Step 11:

  • Press a couple of times on the icon with the yellow arrow to move forward within the app and then select “Simple ADB” from the list. A tutorial may open, if it does, just ignore it and voila.

Step 12:

  • Run Minimal ADB on your computer.

Step 13:

  • Type in command console: ADB shell

sh /sdcard/Android/data/com.catchingnow.icebox/files/start.sh

Step 14:

  • Press the enter key and if all goes well the message “Success” should appear on the screen.

Step 15:

  • IceBox will restart, double click on the arrow again and select “Simple ADB”.

Step 16:

  • Press “Apps” in IceBox.

Step 17:

  • In the window that opened, go to “System” and press “Got it” so that the system apps can be seen.

Step 18:

  • In the list, find the “Google Services Framework” and select it. You can help yourself with the search bar.

Step 19:

  • Press “Freeze” and then restart the mobile.


Your mobile should have active notifications again.

As you will see, the process is easy to follow, but it is not perfect. From now on you will be able to access the Play Store app, but you will not be able to do anything within it. 

The reason? 

By having the framework of the service frozen, the app does not connect with the Google server, so you will not be able to install or update anything.

To fix it, you can install Aurora Store by downloading its APK from its official page and use it as your app store. You can also install any other alternative app store on your Huawei.

But wait, there is more and you can have almost everything working without a problem.

How To Have Notifications From Apps And The PlayStore on Huawei At The Same Time:

you can still have notifications and the Play Store enabled at the same time on your Huawei. How did we do it? Please read carefully.

Enable the Google services framework from the settings menu of your Huawei, not from IceBox. To do it:

Step 1:

  • Open the “Settings” menu of your device.

Step 2:

  • Go to “Applications” and again to “Applications”.

Step 3:

  • Activates the display of system applications.

Step 4:

  • Search for “Google Services Framework

Step 5:

  • Enter and press “Enable”.

Doing so will give you a notification that your device is not certified. It’s a persistent notification, so the best thing to do is swipe left on it, hit the gear icon, and disable it.

From now on, the Play Store, the notifications, and all the apps should work for you without any major problem, but it is still not perfect. Why do we say it? Because there are some details :

  • Google Play still does not work, this has no solution at the moment, although other payment apps that use NFC will work.
  • The Android Wear app doesn’t work either, and at the moment we don’t have a solution. Consequently, you won’t be able to pay with your watch using Google Pay either.
  • Gmail notifications may not work either, but you can fix it. If they don’t, you can uninstall the app and use another email manager like Outlook that you can upload your Google accounts too.
  • The Google Maps compass may not work either, but you can also fix it. The GPS location and others will be fine, but you will not be able to see which direction you are going, but don’t worry, there is a solution: Uninstall Google Maps and reinstall it and with that, the compass should work.

That’s all for today, we hope we have helped you with the notifications and that now you can fully enjoy your Huawei. By the way, if you know a better solution to all this, you can gladly leave it in the comment box and we will review it.

EMUI 10.1 has several new features for devices that are privileged to receive it, including the three new fingerprint animations for the on-screen fingerprint scanner.

The new fingerprint animations are inspired by the elements of earth, fire, and water. The animation effects look immersive and improve user experience.

EMUI 10.1 tip: How to change the fingerprint animation 1

Three new fingerprint animations

The feature is currently being launched for Huawei P30, Mate 30, and Mate 20. On the other hand, it is already available in the Huawei P40, Huawei P30 Pro New Edition, Nova 7 Pro, Honor 30 series, and more.

How to change the fingerprint animation:

  1. settings
  2. Biometrics and password
  3. Fingerprint ID
  4. Fingerprint animation
  5. Select an animation.

Although we do not know exactly the source of this bug, we know that it has a resolution in most cases. What we have to do is just clear our phone’s cache.

Cause of Wi-Fi issue

Although we do not know exactly the source of this bug, we know that it has a resolution in most cases. What we have to do is just clear our phone’s cache. The cache is temporary files that accumulate and in this case, are causing problems and difficulties in accessing Wi-Fi networks.

You may also want to know:

How to clear the cache on your Huawei smartphone?

In order to get around the situation, it is sufficient to make a general cleaning of the mobile phone using the side keys.

General cache clearing through the side keys:
a – Turn off the equipment and then press the Volume + and On / Off buttons simultaneously, until a Menu appears with a black background (or white depends on the EMUI version);
b – Go to the “Wipe cache partition” option, select the same;
c – Now select the option “Reboot System Now”.

We believe that through these steps they will be able to solve the problem, however, if the anomaly persists or if there is something else that is not working at full, you should contact the Huawei Support – Customer Care Portugal

If you experience a similar situation, here is the procedure for cleaning your device’s cache, which should solve this and other problems that may arise in your Huawei devices.

I emphasize that as long as you choose the Wipe Cache option and ONLY the Wipe Cache option, your data is safe and you will not lose anything.

The distant year of 2018 was the year of the GDPR and the topic of data protection comes up more and more when it comes to the Internet. If you want to keep your private information private, you can spend money on applications or cloud services – or you can use the private space function on your devices HUAWEI.

What PrivateSpace is and what it can do is what we will detail in this article.

What is a private space?

The Private Space feature was used for the first time with Android 8 / EMUI 8 and presented a way to expand the smartphone with a second independent environment. Basically we have a second smartphone inside our smartphone. Seems confused? It really isn’t.

Whoever deals with the IT world more often already knows the terms of virtual environments or Docker Containers. Both technologies have the same goal. They offer the possibility to run different operating systems or applications in isolated areas on a computer.

That’s how PrivateSpace works. A new isolated environment is created on the existing smartphone so that the user has a second independent Android system on the same smartphone.

Is it a completely isolated system? Not quite – some settings and areas are shared. These include:

  • WiFi connections
  • Bluetooth
  • Phone (calls, call history)
  • SMS

But enough “theory” – let’s get to practical experience.

Enable PrivateSpace

First of all, not all devices support private space. There is no official list provided by HUAWEI, but it is present at least in the latest generation devices. Our test showed that not all Lite models currently offer this functionality.

Under Settings -> Privacy -> Private Space they can activate the feature. Before you start, you must have a server on how you want to access private space. A separate PIN is required, using a different fingerprint is optional.

Huawei PrivateSpace - The safe of phones with EMUI 1

After setting the PIN or fingerprint, PrivateSpace is created in seconds and the user has direct access to the new interface. The first impression is that they redefined the phone, as it looks as if it came from the factory.

private space takes nothing out of main memory (MainSpace) – neither applications nor configurations!

Huawei PrivateSpace - The safe of phones with EMUI 3

That’s exactly how it should be. However, it looks like another phone at first, because the settings are different. In my case, gesture control is disabled, the keyboard is not configured as before and I noticed many other details.

MainSpace? As we have two systems with PrivateSpace, the main system is called MainSpace and the second newly created system is called private space. One can simply say data storage A and B.

Application scenarios

In my testing phase, I was able to take a look and find out who the role might be really interesting.

First, it is a classic example of business people who want to use the smartphone for professional and private use, instead of using two different devices. The advantages are clear: through PrivateSpace, the user separates their two worlds perfectly and can separate business data from private data. In addition, the dual sim option on HUAWEI also helps to put the project into practice.

When in the business area, private space allows you to protect your contacts and business emails in an isolated environment, phone histories or SMS messages cannot be isolated.

private space would be a good solution to separate hobbies or leisure activities from the normal environment on your phone.

If you want to go a step further and hide the second system completely, you can configure it in the settings (in PrivateSpace). Subsequently, only the person who knows the PIN or who registered the fingerprint can access and have access to private space.

In this way, parents can provide their children with an environment that contains only applications suitable for children.

If you just want to try something in a kind of sandbox (test environment), you will certainly like the PrivateSpace function.


Is private space a future-proof resource? Who can do that?

private space was created as part of and based on Android Enterprise for business people, but anyone with some creativity can benefit from this function. I have already given several examples and there will still be many scenarios that justify a private space.

Technically everything works very stably, it is clear that the change between spaces takes a few seconds. A point that can certainly be optimized in the future.

Another point is the transfer of data between the respective spaces.

For reasons of data and battery protection, parallel operation of both spaces is not possible. This means that there is no possibility to receive real-time notifications from both systems at the same time.
Certainly, there will be people who want exactly this “hang up” function.

There is an important function that is rarely used, but that I personally taste much. Since private space is not linked to the smartphone, it is possible to move it to other smartphones. This saves a new configuration.

In summary, I can say that I am now using the resource to create material for the blog or to test various AndroidGeek applications by isolating my personal data.

The system is not perfect. Some things can be optimized – for example, the parallel operation of the two systems.

What is your opinion about PrivateSpace?

Improve The Sound Quality Huawei phone

Improve the sound quality on your Huawei phone by enabling this feature. Huawei mobile phones integrate various technologies aimed at improving the user experience.

Sometimes these functions are not as visible as they should be and go unnoticed by many users. One of these is Huawei Histen, which allows you to improve the sound of the Chinese company’s mobile phones.

Many users download third-party applications when they don’t like the sound quality of their phones and want to improve it. Keep in mind that no software works wonders and, of course, we must use decent headphones.

Improve the sound quality on your Huawei phone by enabling this feature

There are options designed to improve the sound of the speakers, but when we wear headphones we want the highest quality.

Some Huawei phones have Huawei Histen technology, which can be activated by the audio options and which allows us to improve the sound quality on your Huawei phone.

How to activate Huawei Histen

This option is enabled differently on EMUI  than in previous versions. Previously it was inside the Sounds tab, but in the new version, we will have to enter Huawei Histen’s Settings / Sounds and Vibrations / Sound Effects. If this option is not displayed on your Huawei mobile phone, it means that it does not support this technology.

Four options available

Once inside we will see several audio options that we can activate to start this function.

  • Automatic: automatically detects the type of audio we are listening to automatically optimize the sound.
  • 3D Audio: Manage to simulate the depth of field of 3D sound to offer an immersive experience. It is the best option when watching movies on mobile.
  • Natural: Get the most natural sound in any situation, giving priority to the pure parameters of the original audio.
  • Standard: saves energy to extend playing time.

Improve the sound quality on your Huawei phone, the type of headphones

This is another of Huawei Histen’s options. It is a submenu focused on further improving the sound quality. To do this, we will provide information to the device on the type of headphones we wear. In this sense, we will be able to select both headphones of all types, such as in-ear, earplug, or headband.

Finally, a selection of Huawei headphones is included to be able to select in case we use one of their models. The more precise we are in this regard, the better the rendering of this technology that can improve the sound quality on your Huawei mobile phone.

speed up Huawei phone

You know you can speed up your Huawei / Honor phone. Although Huawei / Honor phones work very well, they are basically Android, and due to the multiple customizations, our phone may start to go slow.

Here’s why I wrote this article on how to make a Huawei Honor cell phone faster. The radical solution would be to restore our phone to factory settings, but in doing so we would lose all the files if you did not perform a backup first.

How to speed up Huawei phone

In this article, we show you a very simple trick to implement, which must be done through the developer options. More than once we have explained what developer options are and what they are for. In summary, these are advanced settings hidden in the smartphone menu and which, when unlocked,  allow us to change some parameters of our devices.

From the  Android development options  you can change the speed of animations and transitions, making the phone faster. First of all,  you have to activate them, which is easier than you think. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the settings and look for “About phone”  (the name may vary depending on the device used).
  2. Go to  “Software information”  and find  “Build number”.
  3. Tap on “Build number” 7 times. If you’ve done everything right you will see a message telling you that you are a developer.
  4. Go back to the Settings menu and you will see at the bottom, the development or developer options.
  5. Enter the Developer Options tab, then go to the Animation Level section and edit the following :
  • Window animation scale: 0.5X
  • Transition animation scale: 0.5X
  • Animator duration scale: 0.5X

This way you will notice that everything you do on your mobile, like opening apps, windows, accesses, etc., works much faster than before. What you have done is nothing else to reduce the speed of these animations or disable them directly. It’s less attractive, less pleasant, but it’s a good way to reduce the feeling of delay on the phone. So simple!

This is the best way to speed up Huawei / Honor’s phone, if you see that you don’t like it, you can always go back and put these configurations back in place.

Backup Huawei Y5P

How do you say? Does your Huawei Y5P no longer start and the screen remains black? Then this is the article that is right for you. The causes of what you have found could be innumerable but, despite this, we will still try to find a solution.

Huawei Y5P Does Not Turn on: How To Solve The Problem

First of all, if I wanted to know what to do if Huawei Y5P does not start, it would be essential to understand if the behavior was found following a fall, an impact (perhaps accidental), or a dive or contact with water or liquids.

If this were the case we would be faced with a hardware problem and, unfortunately, the only viable solution would be to contact an official Huawei service center or a specialized laboratory capable of solving the anomaly found.

If none of this had happened, it is likely that the reason why Huawei Y5P remains with a black screen and does not turn on again, perhaps following an update, is simply software. In this case, make yourself comfortable and proceed with reading the article.

Huawei Y5P is dead and won’t turn on again

As mentioned at the beginning of the guide, the reasons why Huawei Y5P no longer turns on may be different. Fortunately, they are often easily resolved in very few steps, and therefore in a short time, which do not require any specific knowledge.

Press the power button correctly

It is probably not your case but better to be sure. In fact, it happened that more users complained that their phone seemed dead when instead they pressed the power button incorrectly. So be sure to press the button correctly.

It might seem like nonsense, but trust me it isn’t. There are several cases in which people are unable to turn on the smartphone, perhaps because of the haste because of the apparent problem of Huawei Y5P because they hit the power button incorrectly.

Try a forced restart

Do you want to know why Huawei Y5P has shut down and won’t start anymore? Good question, let’s find out together! It may happen that the screen of Huawei Y5P remains black for several reasons, sometimes even following a software update.

In these cases, a forced restart is sufficient. To force Huawei Y5P to restart, you must simultaneously press the volume down and power button for 10-15 seconds, until you see the phone logo appear on the screen. At this point you can release the keys.

We do not exclude that the sequence to do the forced restart of Huawei Y5P can be updated. If the previous one has not had the right effect, try to repeat it, this time pressing only the power button or the power button together with volume up.

If the same behavior occurs again we recommend you reset Huawei Y5P so as to have a clean and error-free software base. Don’t forget to make a full backup first to avoid losing important data and photos.

Do a long charge

Did the previous solutions fail and does your Huawei Y5P look dead? So what to do when Huawei Y5P still does not turn on? The problem could concern the battery, perhaps almost exhausted, which begins to show the first signs of failure.

Try connecting the phone to the charger (preferably with a powerful one like the iPad) for a long time and check if the status LEDs show signs of life. It cannot be excluded that the battery has gone life, which is why it needs a prolonged charge.


Here we are at the end of our guide, in which we showed you all the methods and solutions to solve the problem of Huawei Y5P that no longer turns on. We hope that the article has been to your liking but above all, it has been helpful.
