Exclamation MOTO G: Help for going back and changing firmware from XT1032 to XT1033

Hey nerds,

Could you please help with step by step guide on how to go back and change my UK firmware XT 1032 (for MOTO G) to the normal XT1033 firmware.

I changed my MOTO G XT1033 to XT1032 as was given proper instructions on the web however when I tried searching for instructions going back to XT1033 I didn't find any proper instructions. Please help. I'm kinda in a hurry as I want to sell this phone and need both the sims card tray working.

PS: I have already downloaded the firmware "fastboot_falcon_asia_ds_user_4.3_14.10.0Q3.X-84-7-LCG-4_4_release-keys-cid7-AsiaRetail_03.tar" and per instructions found in the net I got this message

Waiting for fastboot enumeration...

Fastboot device is ready!!

Flashing GPT and bootloader images...

Executing ".\Windows\fastboot.exe flash partition
target max-sparse-size: 256MB
sending 'partition' (32 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.032s]
writing 'partition'...
(bootloader) Preflash validation failed
FAILED (remote failure)
finished. total time: 0.456s
.\Windows\fastboot.exe flash partition gpt.bin failed!!

And over the phone this is the message:

Fastboot Reason: UTAG "flashfail" configured as fastboot USB connected
cmd: getvar:max-sparse-size
cmd: download:00008000
cmd: flashartition
version downgraded for primary_gpt

Please help. I'm really desperate.
Will keep a lookout for your reply.

You are flashing 4.3 firmware on 4.4, downgrading doesn't work and might even brick your boot loader!

Try this firmware (it has different flashing instructions)
