    Isn't 540 unsupported? If yes, before we start this, please remember that unsupported device use Creators Update "at your own risk." For me, that means that unsupported device performance will only get worse and worse as both Creator Update and Apps made for CU pull away. So, you want to do that? If not go to Anniversary Update and enjoy it's updates.

    If you still want CU on an unsupported device, first go to Fast Ring until you install 15063.2 or 15063.138. Then switch to Release Preview ring, and you might get 15063.251. Going forward from there, you might get updates which may or may not be stable.

    And remember, when you change Rings, it can take hours or days for updates to appear.

    Good luck with whatever you choose.

    Please read this article :

    You can now get the Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update on your unsupported phone

    By Rich Woods @@TheRichWoods · Apr 27, 2017

    excerpt:
    It turned out that your phone had to first be on build 15063 before getting updates for 15063 in the ring, which means that you must first upgrade your handset via the Slow or Fast ring, and then switch it to Release Preview.

    I updated my unsupported 535DS yesterday.First Slow Insider and got 15063.2 and then 15063.138.
    Then I switched to Release Preview and got the 15063.251.
    Updates went on one after another.
    Entire process was quite smooth and quick.
    No problems so far.
    All the best !

    Hi there just returned from a 10 day vacation and within that period I have been able to upgrade my Lumia 735 and Lumia 1520 to the Creators Update.

    Getting there wasn't as straightforward as I'd hoped.

    For an upsupported phone to get the Creators Update follow the steps below.
    1. Enroll in the Insider Slow Ring
    2. Download 15063.2 in the Slow Ring
    3. Download 15063.138 in the Slow Ring
    4. Switch to Release Preview Ring
    5. Download 15063.251
    6. Stay in the Release Preview Ring to get future cumulative updates.

    So far my impressions are is that it's not much different from the Anniversary update, like many others have said.

    After been in the Creators Update for about 5 days now here's some of my findings.

    On both Lumia 735 and 1520 upon initial launch of Microsoft EDGE, the keyboard wouldn't pop up when attempting to type on login screens or search bars. Succeeding launches of EDGE do not show this symptom and keyboard pops up successfully every time.

    The official Facebook app on my Lumia 735 I must say is much stabler, I don't recall it crashing yet on the Creators Update, it's still slow launch though.

    On my Lumia 1520 the camera app flashes a black screen for 1 second after launch and then it works after.

    That's what I noticed so far. Very minor update indeed.
