PS Vita Firmware Update 1.65 Released And Detailed

Firmware Update 1.65 has just been released, click to find out the specifications for the new update.......

The 1.65 Firmware Update includes:
  • You can now disable the notification alert messages that indicate when friends sign in, messages are received and other activities. To disable these alerts, got to [Settings] > [Sound & Display] > check/uncheck [Notification Alerts]. Additionally, Notification alerts will now display for five seconds instead of three seconds 
  • ‘After 10 Minutes’ has been added as an option in [Power Save Settings] > [Auto Standby] 
  • An arrow will indicate when new activities are available in LiveArea
  • Caps Lock is now supported by the on-screen keyboard. Simply double-tap the Shift key to enable it

Unfortunately there is no flash support or even basic HTML5 Video support for the browser. Currently nobody really knows why Sony decided to leave out HTML5 Video support for the PS Vita, but it will hopefully be addressed in the next firmware update.

Update: Sony have just removed the update due to a "technical fault" full Playstation Blog statement is below:
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.
