Can someone help me downgrade my Huawei to it's stock version? I'm doing it to unlock the bootloader and flash roms safely or at least in a safe way....

Do you have sd card? If you have download Firmware which suitable for your phone in https://androidhost.ru . Search FIG-LX1 and find your oldest firmware with region code.
- Format your sd card to Ex-fat create a folder and name it "dload"
- In rar archive Software/dload/update_sd.zip file unrar somewhere and is there UPDATE.APP file in update_sd.zip.
- Put UPDATE.APP to your dload folder.
- Shutdown your phone . Press VolUp+VolDown+Power button
installation start automatically and at the end your phone downgraded perfectly :). You can use dc-unlocker and it will read your bootloader unlock code

Didint work for me, tried few SD cards, gazilion different firmwares and 2 bricked phones to revive. Always getting "Update failed" error.

I've succesfully unbricked my phones this way:
1)Download your firmware (region code must match! mine was C432)
2)Unpack your firmware, you'll get new folder with your firmware inside (eg. Huawei P Smart FIG-LX1 Fig-L31 hw eu HLRCF Figo-L31 9.1.0.115(C432E5R1P3T8) Firmware 9.0.0 r3 EMUI9.0.1 05014XMW [androidhost.ru])
3)Format Your SD card (i've used NTFS file system)
4)Open your firmware directory, go to \Software and there you'll find a "dload" folder
5)Copy dload folder to your SD card
6)insert card to your phone, push vol+ vol- and pwrbtn for 10 seconds, relase buttons when huawei logo appears.
Your update will process automatically, it will take a few minutes.

Voila!

Hi, I know that this is an old thread. But I tried t34v2's method, and it kind of worked, it updated the recovery(it looks completely different) but it still will not boot. Is there anything else I could try ?
Thank you for any help.
