I thought I'd give it a go to see if I'm lucky . . .
The evidence suggests you weren't.
I can think of two things you could do. One is trying to flash the mobo back to its original BIOS. However, even if this worked you would still be left with the problem of a CPU which is not suitable for this mobo. The other is to write this mobo off to experience and buy one that is compatible with your Ryzen CPU.
Personally, if the manufacturers say that a given mobo and CPU are incompatible I would be inclined to take the statement at face value.

The PC came on, so I flashed the BIOS via USB,
Well if the pc booted in order for you to flash the bios, then you most likely should not have flashed to the bridge bios before checking out what version you had to start with. I suspect now you probably need to use a Bristol Ridge cpu in order to get it to boot up and then finish updating to the newest bios (P4.60 or P4.70), because you now have that bridge bios (3.40) which is not compatible with the Raven Ridge cpu.
AMD does provide a "boot kit" for you, find out here:
Edit: This board does support the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Raven Ridge cpu, starting with bios versions 4.40 and up
Your board is probably o.k., its just that you installed an older bios that you can not use with the newer cpu
