Apparently (according to Wololo's blog comments) they pulled the update for some reason.

Apparently the update has been released.


No update in U.S. yet I just checked.

Hm? I downloaded it last night before I went to bed. By trying to put some music on it using Content Manager.


I just tried to do an update through the system settings and it said it was up to date?

Strange. Well I'm positive I have the latest one, since I have the feature described in the first post. I suppose you should just wait for it to realize there's a update.

(Or what Xist said.)
