You must be aware that Huawei has launched its latest flagship series which is named as the Huawei Mate 30 series. However, there have been reports regarding Huawei’s Mate 30 series being dead on arrival as well. And the reason behind this is the fact that Google does not allow Huawei to run its services on the latest flagship phone.
Now, Google services are not something that you would need in China as Google is already banned in the country. However, Google services are definitely used widely in most parts of the world outside China. Therefore, it is definitely a bummer that you cannot have your favourite Google apps on a smartphone which costs more than $1100.
However, people were finding it too easy to install Google services on their Huawei Mate 30 series phones. And some were even perplexed that how can this happen when Huawei has not installed the necessary APIs to install Google apps. But it turns out that someone installed a backdoor on the Huawei Mate 30 series which meant that you could install the app just by downloading the apk file and installing it.
The app in question, which can also be called a backdoor to install Google services, was LZPlay and it is not known if this was installed by Huawei or third-party developers. The app responsible for this, LZPlay, has now been taken down, following the release of a detailed explanation of the security backdoor used to install Google apps on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro.
As per a report from the researcher who found this backdoor, LZPlay uses some specialized Android permissions found only in Huawei phones, including the permission to install other apps as “system” apps. This was necessary because some Google apps are required to be system apps and the Huawei Mate 30 Pro was not allowed to have the usual “stubs” of Google apps.
