4.2- in settings> sytem> about. check your device info, in case appears the original targetting info restart your device normally.

this update helps your device work even much better.
9-done.

This is a open source project, so feel free to change it by your own .
What this app contains for starter developers ?
This source code is a real simple code to see how SplitView , RelativePanel , VisualStateManager works , but it's really basic and easy to understood .

Test for 512 MB devices :
guys with 512MB of devices test this :
http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3844546&d=1471383596
first check Backup , Then Tap on Allow Update(for 512MB Ram)
Thanks all guys who find trick for 512 devices and I will add their names soon in thread .

What are the files uploaded ?
DHTUpgradeAdvisor_1.1.4.0_arm_Debug.rar : it contains the appx file and you must be able to deploy it with Developer Mode enabled via file manager .
Dependencies.zip: this contains ARM dependency packages needed for app . (if you weren't able to deploy this app using file manager use device portal to deploy using appx file and these dependencies .
Source.rar : surely it's the source code of my app .
Technical Information about source :
Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 , Universal Windows SDK 10586 (v1.4)

[Q]Old you mean even with 512mb RAM?
[A]I mean Unsupported Phones .
for now 512MB RAM Phones no but work on 1GB ram devices .
I still don't know why getting builds doesn't work on 512 MB rams , but I'm doing research for it .



Guys with 512MB Ram devices test this :

One more thing, which are the "old Lumias" that benefit from this app? The reason I'm asking is because when this thread Redstonebuild 14267& higher for old lumias was started, Lumia 735 was one of the unsupported phones. Now, I got 10.0.14393.5 with Windows Insider in the Release Preview ring.

As I said this app makes it easier to get updated. You can use registry editors freely to modify keys by your own but in this way you will save your Phone targeting info to restore and change your phone identity easier .

Don't get me wrong, it's a great app and we thank you for it. I just wanted to make things clear. For my phone, Lumia 735, no registry edit was necessary yesterday to get to redstone. However, I'm sure your app will be very helpful in the future for other updates Microsoft might consider my phone is not fit.

I think Lumia 735 is a supported phone to get Redstone. That's why no registry editing is necessary to get RS. This app is for those Lumia's (Like Lumia 1020, 920, 925...) which are not supported to for Redstone update officially.

Seriously, if you don't know how the 512MB block works, don't even bother. I took a quick look at the source and it's clear that you've just built a tool which automates some registry editing without having any knowledge of how the actual update gets picked up or how updating a phone even works. There is a lot of redundant code in there.

    How did you do that ? using upgrade advisor app ?
    Yep, uninstall Extras&Info from storage manager and if you're insider, un-enroll your device and stay on production-TH2, Then use DHTUpgradeAdvisor, backup your DeviceTargetingInfo and hit the button "allow update".

    Install upgrade advisor from store and check for update via upadv. Wait a few hours and make somes reboots, then check for update via settings app.

    Done.
