    Follow the instructions in the sticky, after rooting, bout flashing 1.5.2, just be sure to change your entry to 1.6.2 and you should be all set. I flashed it last night.

    well, since I didn't get an answer on XDA, I'll ask here.

    What's the big difference between this and 1.5.2? Besides the disgusting carebears lol

    Only thing I read is some bug fixes. I haven't looked too much into it though.

    - Added power off menu item
    - New unyaffs binary patched by Koushik Dutta and Packetlss to fix the "losing root"-issue and incorrect file-time after a Nandroid restore
    - New dump_image binary (by Brainaid) patched by Packetlss to fix the "bad blocks"- Nandroid restore issue.
    (This will not fix old corrupted Nandroid backups! Please make new backups!!)
    - New mkyaffs2image binary
    - New flash_image binary
    - Updated busybox to v1.5.3
    - Nandroid menu options will NOT backup or restore recovery, cache, misc, splash1+2 (to avoid issues)
    - Fixed wipe option not wiping when ext was not present
    - Created carebear versions after the idea of packetlss
    - Switched the Nexus logo to a Green Carebear with Nexus One logo (Thanks Montalbert!)




    and you dont have to get a care bear version he has a normal green one with htc logo ;)

    visually? no. I have no idea if it makes much of a difference or not. I'm sure it does, or they wouldn't have bothered to put it out there.

    By what 702droid posted, it basically fixes some errors in the 1.5.2 version, or at least optimizes what's already there (I think? lol)

    re-read the instructions. It's not a flashable update, you've got to push it via adb:

    Copy recovery-RA-heroc-v1.6.2.img to the root of your sdcard
    Boot into your current custom recovery (boot while holding HOME)
    Connect your Hero via usb to your pc/mac/...
    Open a cmd prompt and enter:
    cd c:\android-sdk-windows\tools (assuming that's where you've got it saved)
    adb shell
    #mount -a
    #flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-heroc-v1.6.2.img

    my bad i should have been more clear im not tryin to flash the file i mean flashing it through adb but after those commands it doesent say anything and when i reboot it it goes to 1.5.2 again. would it matter if 1.5.2 was still on the root of my sd card along with 1.6.2? (i just never got rid of it after i rooted)

    I had some problems getting the 1.6.2 recovery as well, what I ended up doing was going through the whole root process and recovery installation process over again (using 1.6.2 instead of the 1.5.2 the instructions calls for) even though I was already rooted and I got the 1.6.2 installed.

    Well I can tell you that it does not unroot your phone doing it again, as I just did it on Monday :)

    I was getting a "mounting dev block mmcblk0p2 on system sd failed no such file or directory" error when I ran the 'mount -a' command in adb (to install the new recovery) which is why I decided to go through the whole root process again. which happened to work

    Good luck

    make sure you're typing the name of the img right. I saw a lot of people typing 1.5.2 instead of 1.6.2. And since you've still got 1.5.2 on your card, that wouldn't cause an error, it'd just push 1.5.2 on again.

    You can delete those recovery images your card when you're done installing them, just for future reference :p

    if your just updating it get a teminal emulator from the marketa nd flash it directly from the phone itself

    Open the Terminal program and type the following (with hitting enter at the end of each line):
    su
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-heroc-v1.6.2.img​

    I can't seem to get the free terminal emulator app on the market to give me a keyboard. Anyone else experience this problem?
