I tryed to boot CWM recovery for moto G (from this thread) but it didn't boot.
I have an european XT1032 (italian version), there are any fix for this device?

I tested the recovery with the following command:
For the 4.3 version
Code:
fastboot boot CWM43.img
For the 4.4 version
Code:
fastboot boot CWM44.img
but the device prompt the motorola screen and then reboot without boot the custom recovery.

1) is your bootloader unlocked?
2) are you on a stock JB or KK rom?
3) Do you have the same issue with TWRP?

Yes I unlocked the bootloader. I'm on Stock KitKat (4.4.2) and I have the same issue if I try to boot TWRP. I also tried to flash it on device but the issue remains.

Read the OP from the site where you downloaded CWM carefully again and compare it to that what you have quoted here.

With fastboot boot you are trying to flash cwm (recovery) as a kernel
And even then something is missing in your syntax (flash).

For flashing Kernel use:
Quote:

fastboot flash boot filename.img

For flashing CWM use:
Quote:

fastboot flash recovery filename.img

By the way, here is a good fastboot HowTo.

Sorry i don't understand you. You flashed the recovery already? But you want to test it before you flash? Now what?

What did you do exactly?

I think you messed up something while doing this thats why i am suggesting you to go back to Stock first.

Just flash it by typing "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" and then restart bootloader and press volume down, and then volume up. You should boot into recovery.

Before write this post i already tried flash and then boot the custom recovery, but it doesnt boot.
So i restored the stock recovery,and now i want to test recovery (on the fly) without flash it.

You have to flash it. You can not use it "on the fly" to test it.
