You can grab the 97MB update for your PSVita right now


Update: Sony has confirmed that the update has been taken down temporarily due to a technical fault, and issued the following statement :

PS Vita system software update 1.65 has been taken down temporarily due to a technical fault.
For any customers who may have already downloaded the firmware, they can continue as normal.
We will notify you once the latest system software update is available to download again.


Update: Sony issued another statement detailing the technical fault behind taking down the update :
We identified a symptom that users can not play adhoc play in PSP titles if they download the system software,
so we have taken down the system software temporarily. The system software will be available to download again soon.

- 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.

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

Dude i'm pretty sure these updates are optional (well to those who has OpenCMA) but yea its not like Sony is forcing you to update.

I tryed to conect my system with my pc and I got the update notice, so, I'm updating right now


i read sony removed it because of a Technical fault my best guess there was a way to exploit the vita with a bug so they fixed it

I bet that is not the case, Its more like system stability stuff

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)

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.
