It's been a while since I've dabbled in this stuff but I'll try and offer my two cents.

You'll need to be a bit more specific about what you did and what failed. Also whether the device is soft or hard bricked and if you're able to get into recovery mode or download mode. Need that to determine the extent of the damage

1. Have you tried changing the DNS when using eRecovery via WIFI? If not might be worth a shot.

2. For the SD card method just make sure that you're using a FULL ROM and not an upgrade or downgrade version. Those don't always have all the files needed.

3. HISuite Proxy ( Huawei Phones' Updater & Soft-Brick Fixer )
Have a look at this. Might be something you can use. It's a longish thread but seems to be working for some people with soft brick devices. I don't think I need to say use at own risk but just in case, I have never tried it

Have a look at the two pictures here. There are multiple ones for fig-lx1, you'll have to pick the one that matches the best. I just picked a random one. You're looking for a version which says fullota-mf

Seems like Huawei was cleverer than you. Hate the new pones with locked bootloaders etc. They are making it harder to root and have custom ROMS on.
