If your adjustment of the limits can be plausibly described as "messing around", then you really should just try again.
messing around in the sense that i'm a complete noob but following the Park Tools video.

to me, it appears the cage is angled correctly and at the right height (do my photos shed any light on this?).

i am thinking it MUST be the limits. the limit screw closest to the frame seems to be quite loose in that it appears less "screwed in" than the other. if i am understanding the Sora instruction manual correctly, the screw closest to the frame is the L and the screw closest to the crank is the H: https://si.shimano.com/pdfs/dm/DM-RBFD001-01-ENG.pdf

i turned both of these a bit. maybe 1 or 1.5 full rotations. strangely it certainly looks like the space between the the chain and the cage is more than 1mm even after a rotation. is it possible a few more rotations are needed?

ultimately, at this point, the chain still falls off towards the crank/pedal side and i'm still having occasional difficulty shifting from the large to small chainring.
