Wouldn't work. The OS is device specific for your exact model number, i.e. you need an OS for the 8520, not 8530 or 8500.
You could end up bricking it, but not likely. Probably cause you a lot of grief getting it back and to make it work as you have it - if you actually could get it back.
IMHO, if the device does what you want it to do and isn't broken, there is no need to try to fix it.
