Vita Firmware v.1.66 Available Now, Replaces "Faulty" 1.65

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.


UPDATE: Sony has detailed some new features for v.1.66, which we've listed below.

  • The [System Music] setting in Settings > [Sound & Display] now affects BGM in PS Store, near and Sign-Up screens as well as the Home menu.
  • When searching for location data, users now have the option to 'Retry' and 'Cancel' when a failure occurs.
  • A progress bar is introduced for application installation.
  • A direct link to PlayStation Store is made available for new applications that users may discover on near.
  • Users can now update data at any time within near, provided they are within the same location.
  • The display time of notification alerts has been reduced from 5 seconds to 3 seconds.
  • Functional improvements have been made in the following games and applications: Unit 13, Gravity Daze, near.

Finally, I've been waiting for Caps Lock! Lol! I guess the System music setting is a decent feature, but I'm still waiting for browse and play, along with PSClassics...

Thanks for the update! X)
