    why are they making an update out of this...? it sounds like something a guy with notepad could implement in 10minutes... unless there are hidden updates like HBL fix or something, this is pointless beyond belief... yeah that not having after 10minutes sure improves my experience with! i don't want to be a troll... but come on

    I don't think you understand how updates work and why you're complaining about them improving your gaming experience even more is really beyond me. It's an update that adds a few convenient changes, it's not like it takes away your first born son.

    be nice if they at bare minimum added the ability to download while in standby mode. so I would have to have something running to finish a download when I'm not using it

    First hold the power button for 30 seconds if that doesn't work, hold R, power and the PS button to go into recovery mode and try rebuilding database (it won't delete any files)

    here goes best things in life are free...
    anyways you were saying?
    also without openCMA, yes sony is forcing you to update.

    i am not using HBL, but any word if they patched it or not? anyways i am fine with 1.6 or w/e i am on now, so not updating anytime soon unless it doesn't hinder my vita's homebrew capabilities in any way. man i am horny for some emulators on that gorgeous 5" screen and that sweet sweet hardware.

    I agree. A few bug fixes are not worth the possible loss of a future exploit.
    (edit: I know it's a lot of Ifs, but still...)
