Hello there, how are you? Hope everything's okay.
In this post you're going to find how to convert your No-brand PRA-LX1 to a PRA-AL00 (It is the same Hardware, just chinese ) and also I hope i can help someone, since there's already a guide in how to install Oreo on this device.
So, if you are asking...Yes, you can use my guide for installing Oreo

The only Requisite you have to satisfy is to be on the latest Dual Sim firmware (I started from the B196 No-Brand) or else you're gonna encount some installation error and/or IMEI UNKNOWN

With Oreo the situation changes: the Update changes again from Single Sim to Dual Sim thanks to
the OEMInfo inside the Update. So it's better to start from a Dual Sim device before the update,or for this reason there could be the problems mentioned above.

Anyway, it's actually pretty simple.

1) You need to download this file (It's the OEMInfo Chinese Firmware)
2) Reboot in the TWRP, if you haven't already, and Install my OEMInfo by selecting the install image option in Install menu
3) Reboot into eRecovery and restore the chinese system by connecting to your wifi first)
4) After that, reboot to your recovery and make a wipe data/cache
5) Unlock your bootloader after that (You know how to do it, right?)
6) Done! You are on the Nougat chinese version of Honor 8 Lite phone! Crazy right?

You can then follow the guide for installing Oreo (in this subsection of the forum), but i link it for you: There

And then... I dunno, Have fun!

Edit: Before you update to Oreo, you need to update the chinese firmware to version B220 (Just download it after you converted your PRA, it should appear in updates or Update it manually by downloading it here)

Nice! Just one doubt: when you say "restore my OEMinfo", you mean using TWRP's Restore option, or rather doing "Install Image" -> Oeminfo file, at oeminfo partition?

Thanks!

Mmm... You probably came from a Single Sim device.
Don't worry, Just install Oreo and everything should be fine, I had the same problem

You have unknown Imei? What happened?
Anyway, you can't do pretty much nothing without unlocking your bootloader,since you need the Recovery without no fw checking for installing a different firmware with different code in a completely different Phone (we are always talking about different devices with the same Hardware)

You could try using DC-Unlocker,but you gonna need money for that,and I'm not even sure If it works since I never used it myself,so...
Just try obtaining yourself a Bootloader key and unlock yours. Let me know if you need any assistance

I solved by installing Oreo, you should try it too!
