I flashed boot loader of umts Moto G on my umtsds Moto G when I converted it to GPE rom, and after that phone's boot loader got updated when I flashed 4.4.4 OTA.
Since then my phone is recognized as XT1032

Now, for some warranty reasons, I want my phone to be seen as XT1033, but I can't flash any umtsds boot.img on my phone because you can't downgrade bootloader on Moto G.

So... I was just wondering if it is possible to skip the stupid version check by flashing boot.img via custom recovery?

I donīt get it. Are you trying to flash the kernel or bootloader? Boot.img is the kernel and can be flashed through fastboot (given you have the correct kernel modules in /system).
Motoboot.img is the bootloader as far as i know...

I am not able to flash both actually. But I thought that boot.img is the bootloader.
