I attribute the change in Boba's character to be the result of facing death, then being "reborn" as part of a tribal social unit. In the flashbacks as a child, he would see Jango flying off, then later on filling his shoes (and costume) living a life on anger and brutality to others. He realizes his life before was empty, and learned from the Sand people he could be happy in a society with mutual earned trust and respect.
I think that is/was the intention, however they really didn't show it
well. This is a case where trying to do flashback jump cuts spliced in
just doesn't work well for evolving the character... would have been
better to just make the first 2-3 episodes serialized from coming out of
the sarlac (sp) pit, through to the destruction of the sand people tribe
he was with. Maybe intersperse that with flashbacks to his brutality
Then make the following 3-4 episodes in the "current" timeline of the inter-series setting. Also the mod-kids gang was just horrible... and
the final battle was too constrained.
