The simplified "updates" sequence (the distribution of the 'update.zip' files) works on single, specific branches of the firmware,
but you can switch firmware branch by re-flashing the device (and you of course have to match correct firmware and device - the firmware is re-compiled for each different device).
Check the page at Booxtor's shop site: you see that you have both the "update files" and the "MFG bundles".

Of course, especially for reverting, to flash different firmware branches you must have the images. The only ones I know are Booxtor's but there could be more.
