It should still work if you do it in the right order.

Clone drive
Do upgrade
Realize it was a mistake
Do downgrade
Swap drives

The downgrade wipes the drive but puts the stamp back on the MB that says it's gen3. When you put the cloned drive back in you've got all your recordings and you're still on the gen3.

I doubt making a clone after the upgrade would work. But I think if the clone is from before the upgrade it should work.
