No, of course not.
It's another firmware version and you will brick your device...

There's a small chance that could work but only and if new update is affecting some "unimportant" files.

That's not case here and I wouldn't recommend something like that...

Or I missed something and there is 761 kernel (stripped ftf)!?
Anyway - you have to have prerooted firmware, you can't do that with stock ftf...
