Backup & Restore firmware

Hi all, I have a strange question: Is it possible to backup the firmware on one lumia 620 and then use it to flash another? Here's the scenario in question:

While awaiting the amber update, I managed to download and install the Nokia Software Updater for Retail (version 3.0.8) and successfully updated my handset to firmware revision 10.30.6407.1308.004. Problem is that before doing this, I had no operator loading screen and the handset functioned a bit faster in my opinion. Now I'd like to go back to the prior version by backing up the firmware of another 620 and restoring to my device. I purchased two Lumia 620s (from Digicel my network operator) and the other handset uses firmware revision 1030.6407.1308.0002 (so essentially I just want to back up the 0002 firmware and flash it back to my device with the 0004 firmware). Is it possible and if so which software will I require? :)

Only the firmware revision 1030.6407.1308.0004 is available (which I currently have and for some reason I incorrectly listed as 10.30.6407.1308.004 before, my apologies). I'm trying to go back to the 0002 version. However, the Nokia Software Updater for Retail is only listing the 0004 version as available (unless I am doing something wrong). I did notice that there is a login option to the Firmware Repository for Care (in the Server configuration tab of the program) but it requires a username and password. I'm wondering if I can sign up for credentials somewhere on Nokia (wishful thinking I know, but I may actually pay for the privilege once it is legal). Just my opinion, but owners of handsets should at least have access to current and previous firmware revisions of their particular models when connecting to the Nokia Software Updater for Retail.

Shouldn't the Digicel firmware also be available at the Nokia servers?

You can try flashing that.
