Well clearly if it's truly incompatible FTP won't help other than to get an unusable file onto the machine.
I am not sure how well the TGTRLS parameters line up between SAVRST vs SAV* but I'd expect them to be the same.
If a save file supported by the old release can be created and used then SAVRST ought to work.
