Overviews

I am Microsoft Apps developer and owned 2 units of Nokia Lumia 635 512MB Windows 10 Mobile smartphone. Both
devices get upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile AU for years. The final edition Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update reached end of service after the release of build 15254.603 on January 14, 2020. So, i decided to take a look to get both devices upgrades to Windows 10 Mobile Fall Creators Update build 15254.603. and that is a successful and extremes performances and no issues and no overheats with some right configurations settings after several trial and errors. Remember that, do it at your own risks and you know what's you are doing one. But, it's not too complicated for you to follow-up.

What's happened if thing went wrong? Simply, using WindowsDeviceRecoveryTool to restores your Windows 10 Mobile. you can download over Softpedia. Install the WindowsDeviceRecoveryTool, connect your Windows 10 Mobile phone to computer via a USB cable, execute the tool and follow the on-screen instruction and done.

Few apps you have to get it, and download.

  1. Interop Store. download via Microsoft Store here,

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/interop-tools-st...

  2. InteropToolsApp, this the one worked on Lumia 635. Download at https://www.dropbox.com/s/y54v4urefiqw1gv/InteropTools%20Releases.zip?dl=0 Here

get both and install the Interop Store first follow by the InteropTools, only InteropTools is older versions.If the Interop Store work for you, you can skip the InteropTools.

To install Interop tool [ 2nd option ] after you install Interop Store, you can using the Windows Device Portal, check this out How-To https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/debug-test-perf/device-portal

In this tutorial. Your devices have to have the minimum 512MB memory and I am upgrades from Lumia 635 512MB Windows 10 Mobile AU. and minimum 2GB above free space, so the faster method is reset the device to free the storage room. and a cooling solutions for your devices, because along the way on upgrading the device going to heating up and causes many unexpected errors, what's i discovered

Always pick the devices specification's close to your devices. I feels the Model Name was the key for the customized profiles configuration for the devices, means better don't set Lumia 635 as Lumia 950, too far away from the hardware specifications and performance. In this case, i choose to Lumia 650 RM-1152. I tell why later on.

Skip Ahead

if you having issues Store failed to updates system apps, just reset the devices, applied the settings and let Store updates all the apps. When all apps updated finished. You can uninstall those apps you don't want or some apps taking too much space, and reinstall apps to SDcard.

Remember, New apps will save to : This Device . to avoid apps installations issues.

Restart device everyday or when the system not working smoothly. In-case Soft Reset the Lumia devices, repeat it 3 times after the Nokia logo.

Charging the battery before dropped to below 60%. Avoid full cycle from zero to 100 percent and overnight charging. Instead, top-up your phone more regularly with partial charges. Ending a charge at 80-90 percent is better for the battery than topping all the way up to 100 percent. For fast charging just putting device into airplane mode.
