I can confirm that mine is unbranded factory unlocked and i flashed the Android 4.4.3 Retail EU to 'return it to stock'. But i only flashed the /system partition. And mine remained unbranded.

Code:
mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.0
mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.1
mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.2
mfastboot flash system system.img_sparsechunk.3
So if it is indeed a Tesco version, it may be in another file. Perhaps the boot.img... cant see anything else that would cause it?? Can anyone shed some light.

The other option, as suggested, is that flashing this firmware does not remove Tesco, and it remains that way.
Sony Ericsson K300i --> Sony Ericsson w910i --> Samsung Omnia II GT-I8000 -> SGS1 I9000 --> HTC One X --> SGS4 i9505 --> Motorola G XT1032 --> Motorola G 4G XT1039

Any chance of a screeny of the 4.4.4 flash from the firmware team (on a Tesco handset)?

Mine has updated OTA now and I'd like to compare again.

Thanks.

Thanks for that info. Wonder if anyone would like to be the guinea pig and flash all the partitions so we can find out which one it is

Still no update for the retail u.s.
The only good thing I find is a new kernel is coming.
That and the xt1042( us cellular CDMA?).
Looks like I'll be unifying the gsm.

Would be good to know whether people coming from a factory unlocked phone end up with a tescogb customisation by flashing the ROM by firmware-team.
Just to clarify, while the images are provided by firmware-team - they originate from Motorola's servers. Following established tradition on Moto G, there should be a Retail EU firmware image and a TESCO branded-one.

Upon further inspection I suspect fsg.mbn is the culprit. With the original Moto G, fsg.mbn only contained the customisation for the ROM which was released. With the Moto G 4G, fsg.mbn detects which customisation it should use. If we could unpack it and manually flash the retail (emea) fsg.img, then the customisations should be removed.

Interesting stuff. I'll look into it asap.

EDIT: The fsg.mbn included in 4.4.3 Retail US for Moto G non-LTE also contains similar code. This may not be the reason branding is retained. Also I was under the impression the fsg partition only acted as a backup location for radio firmware. In theory someone (with branding other than Tesco) could dump their fsg partition as fsg.img and you could flash it. I doubt that is the reason branding is retained however.

If anyone wants to try the following prior to flashing: (if it works at all, but could result in lost IMEI - unknown outcome)
Fastboot erase fsg

I'm looking for the below f/w to enable me to 'stockify' a rooted moto g 4g on Tesco. Don't think it's available though?

Tried erasing fsg and reflashing fsg.mbn, but customisations remain. Really appreciate you looking into it though, thanks

I currently have the MOTO G 4G on a canadian carrier Rogers and its also XT1040 with this version on it Android 4.4.3 KXB21.14-L1.23-4
DO you have a link for it? or would you recommend flashing the US version which seems to be closer to my version when looking at the numbers,
