Have you tried update you phone via eRecovery?
in two days i could not enter erecovery, only last night i don't know how i was updating on the net on erecovery but it didn't work. I think the problem is that the phone is branded tim italia and I try to fleshare rom stock eu. maybe i should try to remove the branding first?

you can try it if you still have TWRP installed. I just don't know if this will work on a bricked phone (if it's really bricked).

Try the following:
A. Download oeminfo.img
https://mega.nz/file/U4kjnaYR#RNj3zCLOGFoIO60XbVGBUeiES-pL6iUA1XwRbF4Zo7s
and copy it to SD Card
B. Download HuRUpdater.zip
http://www.mediafire.com/file/r14sor2g4cbugzw/HuRUpdater_0.4.zip
C. Download 3 .zip files
https://mega.nz/file/U4FinbjT#kDz1El-q-a8D1SrSHsuxxc_rbHInv9csS_44UBNf6hM
https://mega.nz/file/hsUCCBAD#hkmbxrADhkIO7TH-kc0uCVAChKmRc5v8FjZ3cXBrwuo
https://mega.nz/file/Esd2iLbI#ohL04KwVpMX5-c27stk4vvmsMph_GAgbc1aHCLx-hyo
D. Create a new folder , put the ANE-LX1C432 firmware (3 files) and HuRUpdater-0.4.zip at that folder. Copy this new folder to the SD card.
E. Install this TWRP
https://mega.nz/#!Fgd0xa4R!1o5ejzDnkLJLG2tAZG-STtlJ4nnNCHfwwZdOlmOkrVw
F. In TWRP flash oeminfo.img , go back in TWRP's menu and flash .zip folder with HuRupdater (tap hurupdater.zip ). Follow instruction on the screen.
G. In TWRP reboot to Recovery and perform factory reset. The process will lock you BL again.

DO YOU KNOW THAT IN THE MEAN TIME I WAS WAITING FOR YOUR ANSWER I HAVE DEADIZED THE MOBILE PHONE USING A GUIDE ON THE INTERNET AND CHANGING THE LOCATION I BELIEVE I HAVE SUCCESSFUL TO REMOVE TIM / ITALIA BECAUSE HUAWEI APPEARS NOW. I MADE A SWIPE FROM TWRP AND ALWAYS APPEARS MOUNT PRODUCT.

You want to install .img file, so select "Install image", and mark "oeminfo" .
So Alf, the procedure did not work 100%, it gave me an error, but it made me enter erecovery where I launched the recovery on the net. now i have the emui 8 to update and everything seems to work. thank you
and remember, anything can be done.
now it's updating to emui 9 but i want a google-only system that works 100% as having a google account i don't like double apps like the huawei and google store, or huawei and google gallery.
what stock rom google or pixel do you recommend that have VoLTE nfc and mobile network signal lines working?

ragazzi, oggi ho aggiornato alla nuova versione per Android 12, quando provo a connettere un dispositivo in bluetooth non si accoppia, non sono esploso.

Mod translation via GT: guys, today i updated to the new version for android 12, when i try to connect a device in bluetooth it doesn't pair, i didn't explode.

Known issue on [A12] GSI ROMs on Kirin-devices.
Alf, the solutions are there, I don't understand why they make Roma just to say that they have made them. I hate adding apps that I no longer need like Magisk or edxposed. that it is also difficult to find the solution to your problem, you have no support and you do not find adequate guides. I am back to android 11 and when they have a rom that I can use as a daily device that can do everything I will mount it on.

compra snapdragon e tutte le rom funzioneranno :) ...

Cosa intendi per "guida adeguata"?🤔
ok prenderò in considerazione Snapdragon, se lo dici ci credo. per quanto riguarda le guide credo di aver capito che l'installazione di Magisk su Kirin può rendere PE+ completo, in quanto ho bisogno di NFC Bluetooth e segnale di rete funzionante. Non trovo guide che mi aiutano a risolvere.

ok i will consider Snapdragon, if you say so i believe it. as for the guides I think I understand that installing Magisk on Kirin can make PE + complete, as I need NFC Bluetooth and working network signal. I don't find guides to help me solve

On PE+ (11) work everything, without Magisk.

Solve what?
then I have two p20 lite, in the SIM sign I have PE + 12, I only installed the firmware and Bluetooth NFC does not work. In the dual SIM I have PE + 11, here the Bluetooth works but strangely not with the car, I have no NFC and for the signal icon I downloaded an app, even here I only flashed the Rom. In both I have not installed Magisk and various because I have not found guides that explain to me how to solve. sorry but being Italian I have difficulty in searching, various translations and so on. however I always thank you for letting me recover a device in the past.

    Oright, I'm back in the game.

    Thank you -Alf-, LR7875 and MrPipa

    I too didn't manage to make the dload method work.
    So I also followed Alf's suggestion to use Huawei Update Extractor.

    Here is a recap for other noobs like me:

    My device is:
    Huawei P20 lite
    Build: ANE-LX1 9.1.0.381 (C432E7R1P7)
    vendorcountry: hw/eu

    1. Download huawei update extractor here:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3966156
    (from this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/...updated-v0-9-9-5-open-source-library.2433454/)

    2. Download Stock ROM from here: https://androidhost.ru/1O2r
    (Thanks to -Alf-)

    3. In windows, unzip HuaweiUpdateExtractor_0.9.9.5.zip

    4. Unzip "Huawei P20 Lite ( Nova 3e )... .zip"

    5. Unzip the update_sd.zip file contained in the folder path /Huawei P20 Lite ( Nova 3e ).../Software/dload/update_sd

    5. Launch HuaweiUpdateExtractor.exe

    6. Go in the tab settings and uncheck all boxes

    7. Back to the first tab, leave the drop down field to "unknown ..."

    8. Click on the 3 dots on the right side and select the file UPDATE.APP in the newly unzipped folder update_sd

    9. HuaweiUpdateExtractor will show all the .img files contained in the UPDATE.APP file

    10. Extract all to a folder (i.e. update-imgs) with right click on any img file and select extract all

    11. Put the device in fastboot mode and start flashing .img files (see below)
    (from this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/huawei-p20-lite-bricked.3798842/)

    Plug in usb cable into the pc and the device, boot the device into fastboot by pressing and holding Volume Down and power buttons, hold it until it boot into fastboot
    Android icon with 2 red lines under it: bootloader unlock and FRP unlock

    Then open a terminal or command line in the folder containing all the images i.e. update-imgs
    and use these commands:
    Code:
    fastboot flash cust CUST.img
    fastboot flash kernel KERNEL.img
    fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk RECOVERY_RAMDIS.img
    fastboot flash recovery_vbmeta RECOVERY_VBMETA.img
    fastboot flash recovery_vendor RECOVERY_VENDOR.img
    fastboot flash system SYSTEM.img
    fastboot flash vbmeta VBMETA.img


    I'm not sure if they are all necessary but I tried a few of them (system, recovery_ramdis, ramdisk)
    and it didn't seem to work.

    Only after doing the rest of them, it worked.
    Meaning the device could boot into stock rom.

    12. Reboot the device after the last command with:
    Code:
    fastboot reboot

    Now back to normal.


    After that I got LineageOS 16 on the device with these steps:

    1. Download a TWRP, I used this one: https://mega.nz/#!Fgd0xa4R!1o5ejzDnkLJLG2tAZG-STtlJ4nnNCHfwwZdOlmOkrVw
    (Thanks to -Alf-, from this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/recommended-and-tested-twrp-recovery.4199099/)

    2. Downlaod LineageOS 16 from here: https://lineageosroms.com/anne/

    3. Copy the LineageOS 16 image to device's SD card.

    4. Connect the device to a pc via USB cable, put the device in fastboot mode (Volume DOWN + Power buttons until the android icon appears)
    then use this command line from the folder containing the TWRP image file (i.e. TWRP-oreo-smart.img):
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk TWRP-oreo-smart.img
    and reboot with:
    Code:
    fastboot reboot

    5. To get into TWRP, unplug the USB cable and go into recovery mode by pressing and holding Volume UP + Power buttons until Huawei logo appears.

    6. In TWRP:
    (Again thanks -Alf-, from this thread: https://forum.xda-developers.com/t/rom-official-anne-9-lineageos-16-0.4151163/page-3#post-83601729)

    6.a: go to Wipe > Format data, go back to TWRP's main menu
    6.b: Wipe > Advanced Wipe > Wipe Dalvik, Cache, Data, System, Internal storage > Swipe to wipe and go back to the TWRP's main menu
    6.c: Install > navigate to LineageOS 16's .img file and swipe to install LineageOS
    6.d: Back to TWRP's main menu, select Reboot > Reboot recovery > perform factory reset
    That part didn't work for me, it kept booting into TWRP.
    So I had to get into eRecovery from TWRP, I unplugged the USB cable.
    And then pressed Volume UP + Power buttons until the phone rebooted and the Huawei logo appeared.
    At the Huawei logo, I released the buttons and the device booted into eRecovery.
    Then I could do a factory reset by following the onscreen instructions.

    Done, the device reboots and after the Huawei logo appears the LineageOS animation.

    Enjoy and again thank you -Alf-, LR7875 and MrPipa


    Edit: Added flashing CUST.img as per -Alf- suggestion
    Edit: Added remove the USB cable to boot into eRecovery

    Hello there,

    I managed to unlock the bootloader and the FRP for the Huawei P20 Lite ANE-LX1 (which was on emui 9)
    Then I flashed Twrp-3.5.2_9-0.
    It worked fine for a while. But when I tired "Wipe data", it got stuck with "Formating f2fs, Done" for 1hour.
    So I rebooted the device with volume down + power.
    When I try to get back in TWRP, it's getting stuck at the logo and there is also no access to eRecovry, it says "booting now" undefinitely.
    And of course no access to the stock rom which says the same thing "booting now" undefinitely.
    I also tried fastboot erase system.
    I still have acces to the fastboot mode with bootloader unlock + FRP unlock.

    Is there a way to unbrick the device?

    Let me know if you need any additional info.
    Thank you in advance.

    Those links are for nova 3e, does it work also for ANE-LX1?
    I'm not an idiot bro ....

    Got it!
    I found an old message by @-Alf- where he suggested to use Huawei Update Extractor to extract system, kernel and recovery_ramdisk images from the stock service ROM and flash them manually with fastboot. This works! Or at least the stock rom and erecovery seems to boot fine.

    Thank you both @-Alf- and @LR7875 ! These forums can be confusing, I'm used to Nexus 6P where there is plenty ROMs available and no issues with TWRP etc. 😄 I will now go for my second attempt to get LOS 18 to work (with magisk 😏)

    Btw the build number is ANE-LX1 9.1.0.381(C432E7R1P7) (hw/eu edition, same as OP)

    Super, congrats!

    P.S.: if I may add something - often it is important to flash CUST.img partition.
