It should 'just work' - there are no other changes

Thank you for reply but doesn't see/use the 512 as far as i can see cat /proc /meminfo returns 187292 kb same as on old 256 pi.
cant find where to change usage to see if gpu is using it but will keep plugging /googling/reading until i find something.
Any way to see if it really came with the 512?
unless,it only has info from the old unit stored on SD card i put in new one?
CLI and I are not friends but i will try anything,why i enjoy your tutorials and kits.
