Galactic black hole transients show many interesting phenomena during outburst decays. We present simultaneous X-ray (RXTE, Swift, and INTEGRAL), and optical/near-infrared (O/NIR) observations (SMARTS), of the X-ray transient, XTE J1752-223 during its outburst decay in 2010. The multi- wavelength observations of 150 days in 2010 cover the transition from soft to hard spectral state. The evolution of ATCA/VLBI radio observations are shown to confirm the compact jet appearance. The source shows flares in O/NIR during changes in X-ray and radio properties. One of those flares is bright and long, and starts about 20 days after the transition in timing. Other, smaller flares occur along with the transition in timing and increase in power-law flux, and also right after the detection of the core with VLBI. Furthermore, using the simultaneous broadband X-ray spectra including IN- TEGRAL, we found that a high energy cut-off is necessary with a folding energy at around 250 keV around the time that the compact jet is forming. The broad band spectrum can also be fitted equally well with a Comptonization model. In addition, using photoelectric absorption edges in the XMM– Newton RGS X-ray spectra and the extinction of red clump giants in the direction of the source, we found a lower limit on the distance of > 5 kpc.
