Thanks I'll try that.
I'm downloading the files right now.
Hope it will work.
I'll keep you updated, thank you very much for your help.

edit: I have copied the dload folder with rollback to a sd card and I have pressed volume up + down + power on the turned off phone.
Now it is blocked to blue screen Honor. What do I have to do?

Thanks
Try wiping data again.

Notes: I've heard reports that flashing stock recovery and stock boot.img from fastboot(instead of twrp) help to have a higher chance of getting past erecovery. Let me know if it helps.
.......
Yes it help me. When i flashed the boot and recovery img via TWRP the phone want boot to system, it boot only on erecovery. When i flashed the boot and recovery img via fastboot the phone boot normaly.

Thanks brother... got sorted out by flashing firmware downloaded from http://consumer.huawei.com/pk/support/mobile-phones/honor8-pk-sup.htm . The firmware available is marshmallow (emui 4.1). Now my bootlocker is locked, unrooted and my device as fresh as new.
I downloaded 1.67gb file from the above mentioned post ,extracted, placed on my sdcard in "dload" folder. booted up with vol up+vol down + power combo. get me into the update mode.
Thanks to @adriansticoid and @Dimontiman for the support...:good::good::good:

NOTE: MY DEVICE IS FRD-L09 (middle east version) hope it helps to others with the same...:):):)

    First thing: before using this How-to guide. *I am not responsible for any data lost,bricked phones,or anything related to your Honor 8*

    I am writing this from my own experience updating. Your mileage may vary.

    Notes: I've heard reports that flashing stock recovery and stock boot.img from fastboot(instead of twrp) help to have a higher chance of getting past erecovery. Let me know if it helps.

    To follow this guide you should be rooted,TWRP installed and using the B360 version while having the OTA available for B385 for FRD-L04.


    Ok, lets get started.

    Code:
    Step 1:
    Make backups. I made backups with HiSuite and within TWRP. Just in case.

    Code:
    Step 2:
    Reboot into Recovery. I used TWRP v3.1.0-3 for steps outlined.
    [URL="https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0uzUjmZ9bI6eVBlWm1ZSE56Yzg"]Download for TWRP IMG[/URL]

    Code:
    Step 3:
    You will need to [I]Unroot[/I]. Whatever method you want to use, do it,
    but, I used the UnSU zip by Osmosis
    [URL="https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0uzUjmZ9bI6SXlmenpVM3Z4b0E"]Link for .zip[/URL]
    Flash this .zip. Do not Reboot.

    Code:
    Step 4:
    We need to flash the stock boot.img and the stock recovery.img. (This likely needs to be done in 
    Fastboot versus recovery)
    [URL="https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0zE1Kk8sIB6MDF6SmEyaXYzVTg"]Stock Recovery.img[/URL]
    [URL="https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0zE1Kk8sIB6NlIzOWJkQ1Z1OHc"]Stock Boot.img[/URL]
    
    Now, Move these somewhere on your 
    phone (internal storage/SDcard) and go to Install from TWRP. (Many people 
    report success doing this step in Fastboot)
    Locate files, Probably have to switch to Images. 
    Flash boot.img to [I]Boot[/I] and recovery.img to [I]Recovery[/I]

    Code:
    Step 5:
    Shutdown phone from TWRP. Make sure when you turn your phone 
    back on, don't have it connected to USB.

    Code:
    Step 6:
    
    Power up phone

    Code:
    Step 7:
    
    You should be able to boot like normal to your previous phone configuration, 
    except now you have stock boot and stock recovery 
    and should be able to receive/install OTA.
    
    NOTE: If you have issues with booting and it will only boot to 
    eRecovery, try hitting[I][B]Shutdown[/B][/I] and performing 
    a cold boot. If that still doesn't workthen you will have to run 
    through the prompts and recovery B360.That's why we have
    backups as step 1

    Code:
    Step 8:
    Once phone is booted, go to Settings-> System Update -> 
    Perform the update to OTA B385 like normal

    Code:
    Step 9:
    We just need to get into fastboot mode now and flash TWRP 
    like we have done on B360 and previous.
    Connect phone with USB debugging enabled and open cmd prompt.

    to make sure device is connected
    Code:
    [I]adb devices[/I]

    open directory you need
    Code:
    [I]cd c:\whatever the path you saved the TWRP.img[/I]
    Reboot phone to bootloader
    Code:
    [I]adb reboot bootloader[/I]
    Flash TWRP
    Code:
    [I]fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.1.0-3-frd.img[/I]
    Code:
    [I]fastboot reboot[/I]


    Code:
    Step 10: 
    After phone reboots. We need to get into the TWRP recovery we just flashed.
    Whatever method you want to use. I just shutdown and used
    power up+power button.

    Code:
    Step 11:
    we need to flash Magisk to get root.[URL="https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0uzUjmZ9bI6WFMwTUIwd21rX2s"]Magisk[/URL]
    Place .zip on phone Sdcard or internal
    in TWRP -> install -> locate Magisk flashable zip
    [I]flash and reboot[/I]


    I think that covers it. You should be updated to the latest B385 OTA and have Magisk root.

    Sorry if this was long.


    A ton of credit to @Telperion for helping and access to the correct files to get this completed

    I know u can't successfully install ota update while rooted/custom recovery, but will the update still arrive via ota if rooted, or will it not even show up till phone is unrooted? Reason I ask is because the vast majority seems to have already received this update, where as I have been waiting and waiting... Wondered if maybe it wasn't showing up yet because I wasn't unrooted and/or not running stock recovery/boot
    Yes. 3 days ago I was still with B360 and SuperSU and my phone was notifying me of a B385 update. Until I came along to this guide. Now I'm in B385 and Magisk.

    What is wrong with you?

    This guide also works with L09

    Just follow the steps, as you didnt want to listen to my Advice

    You better leave your phone unrooted and use stock emui if you are not able and willing to read

    Sorry for that but ao you will have less problems

    If you root your phone you should also reed what to to to unroot it the same for twrp, if you are not willing to search the infos than better let it run stock emui
    Calm down man. Maybe he is new to the steps and don't wanna break his phone. :)

    Turn off device

    Press volume down and power until fastboot mode opens

    Now you can flash through cmd



    ---_----------_


    If this also dont works you have to do a rollback with rollback package and b131 Firmware

    Follow my guide:

    Download rollback package from huawei honor site and b131 firmware
    Extract the files and you will get a dload folder with update.app inside


    Copy the dload folder to sd card and press volume up + down + power on a turned off device

    Don't forget to delete the dload folder after the first step and after you finished


    Do this first with rollback package and then repeat this with b131 Firmware
