After yanking Vita firmware update v.1.65 a couple of hours after launch due to an unspecified "technical fault," Sony has rushed out the improved v.1.66. It contains the same inconsequentially minor improvements as its predecessor, and can be downloaded either directly from the Vita settings menu or via PC/PS3 content manager.
