If you don’t have the back flat all the way to the edge, you will never get it sharp jig or no jig. You are working on a cheap chisel that may be way out of flat there can be a little hollow behind the edge but the sides and edge have to be flat at a minimum.

Make sure you get that done first.

Never advance to the next grit till you get a burr.

I recommend learning to sharpen freehand right from the start.
