    Yes, if you install CAB-updates without microsoft.devicelayout_qc8916.mainos.spkr.cab, you can upgrade to the CU.

    Sorry to ask so many questions.... I just want be clear on the process

    So I MUST to reset back to wp8.1 first? Right now rhe phone is on 14393 or something.

    Installing the cab mean just open the link the your text file on the phone and run the cab file individually somehow?

    Then I just goto phone update and update the phone?

    Thanks @kovalDN, when I get the phone from my mom in law I look forward to try... maybe it's still a good phone to buy if I can get for cheap, Anniversary update is still ok enough for my parents!! But would like to see how feature 2 is on it!

    Thank you kovalDN.

    After downloading the posted CAB file links, reading the guide you pointed out to anthonyng and resetting my phone back to Windows Phone 8.1 (via WDRT), I was successful in updating my BLU Win HD LTE (X150Q) to the latest version of Creators Update that is currently being offered now.

    I do have a question though.

    How do you update BLU Win HD LTE (X150Q) to the latest Fall Creators Update? No matter what branch I'm in (Release Preview, Slow, Fast) when I join Windows Insider, it keeps telling me I have the latest version installed. Creators Update is the latest version I can get OTA. Any ideas?

    Masking through the registry under other device capable of updating the FCU.

    Phone runs about the same (performance and battery wise) as Anniversary Update. As far as app compatibility goes when it comes to running feature2 on this phone, can't say for sure how well the remaining apps that are still available in the store will run.

    * Microsoft own apps seems to run fine.

    * Netflix app still doesn't work after updating to feature2. Hangs at the Netflix screen.

    * Microsoft Store runs a little sluggish. Fluent design (transparency effect) is now enabled. Probably explains why it's a little sluggish now.

    If you do plan on upgrading to feature2, make sure you set the 'Size of text, apps, and items on this display' to 150% under display setting before applying the registry trick that kovalDN provided. After rebooting the phone, the display is going to look weird. You will still be able to navigate your way through in order to update your phone.

    Once the phone has been updated to feature2, reset the phone. Everything will return to normal, including any registry changes that was made in order to get feature2 update.
