    I didn't see the warning in Chevy's 5.2 announcement about potential issues with upgrading to 5.2 from 5.1 using SPR. Well, it's for real.

    What can I do? Do I need to wipe and install 5.2 fresh? Can I somehow get clockworks over SPR and install from that?

    The install using SPR will not work - I would suggest re-installing the last ROM that installed correctly with SPR - then (if you have Rom Manager) flash CWR over top ...

    Agree! I would restore the last good backup you have then follow Chevy's instructions for an update.

    Let us know how you resolve, please

    One other thing you should be able to do, to get it booted - however, the issue is that other pieces of the install did not happen that should have - however, this should get it booted at least:

    1. Reboot to recovery
    2. Mount system partition
    3. Using ADB, enter this in terminal:

    ln -sf /system/lib/libaudiopolicy_dsp.so /system/lib/libaudiopolicy.so

    Now reboot

    Having just completed this path, what worked for me:

    Download the latest RZRecovery (I believe the link is now on the 5.2 announcement)
    Plug the phone into the USB
    Boot into SPRecovery
    Select mount options, Enable USB Mass Storage
    On your computer, copy the RZRecovery zip to the now-mounted SD Card (as update.zip)
    Back on the phone, disable USB Storage
    Do the install, Allow update.zip installation, install /sdcard/update.zip (deprecated)
    Reboot into recovery, and now you're running RZRecovery.

    Redo the install of your 5.2 zip, and all should be fine.

    Good luck!

    I put 5.1 back on. Then downloaded ROM Manager, flashed Clockwork and then flashed 5.2. So far everything looks like it's working just fine.

    As an aside, do people normally download ROM updates through ROM Manager and if so is there a way to do it quickly? I cancelled after it was 5% done after about 5 minutes and just did it manually.

    RM can only point to one path - whereas here I can post up mirrors - likely the path it pointed to (my ftp site) was being overrun! :icon_eek:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! Ohh well finally time to move on from SPR. So the easiest way is to use Rom Manager and flash CWR? Or should I say which recover do you recommend?

    Both CWR (yes, flash from RM) and RZR are good. I have not had a single recovery issue yet with RZR (make SURE you use the latest version 2.0.3)

    Using RM I had it get stuck twice and had to do a battery pull and wipe after each one. After second wipe it loaded and booted up just fine.

    I like RZR-2.0.3 ... it seems to work for me and I like the ability to charge while in recovery and it can use an overclocked kernel.

    It is also very SPR like as it was based on the SPR code initially.

    I still get stuck on M even with RZR 2.0.3 should I try another kernal aside from the one from your rom?

    How long are you 'stuck'? Base kernel should work just fine. I assume you also wiped 3 times to be sure?

    I too had that same issues, even after flashing RZR 2.0.3. Couldn't even get a backup to flash properly. Wiping ALL 3 times did the trick! The first wipe I did in RZR recovery locked up while wiping the cache, but eventually finished. I believe this is why SS5.2 didn't install correctly the first time. So I wiped 3 times, installed again, booted perfectly!

    for wiping, do the "wipe all" function on RZR? (sorry I'm new to RZR)
