    not that simple. every stupid article I’ve read says the same thing yet I keep coming up with the same error. version downgraded for primary…gpt and version downgraded for boot. I can never get the boot to pass. I am using XT1032_FALCON-TELUS-CA_5.0.2_LXB22.46-32_31_cid14_CFC_1FF.xml I have android 5.1 which was rooted a while back (I unlocked the bootloader) but I unrooted, never flashed any other roms was still stock, but now it won’t let me relock the bootloader so I am trying to take it back to stock so that I can relock the bootloader and get regular updates.
