very unlikely this works, some “state” in settings databases could be incompatible and bar you from a successful boot. Then there’s the “rollback protection”. You’d need to backup your userdata and reflash.

How can I make a backup copy?

that is very much do-it-yourself, as in copy images via usb cable or if you have them uploaded to or any other webstorage that works too. You’ll need to reinstall apps etc
