PSN+ Minis works fine for me. Just look them up on Download list in Store on Vita - this has been definitely fixed.

I updated to 1.66 to add my plus minis but it isn't working for me. I can't download them on the vita and I can't add them from the PS3 through content manager. hmmm

Has anyone has any issues with their Vita running on FW 1.66? Upon playing Uncharted: Golden Abyss for maybe 10 or 12 min my Vita shut completely off. It was already fully charged too.

some are saying the update fixes the problem with PS+ minis not loading on vita.

I like this bit "For any customers who may have already downloaded the firmware, they can continue as normal." then why was it pulled?

Indeed not for EU yet ... the funniest part is that even if you have Japanese Vita but logged into EU / UK account it will not update ... unless indeed you want to tinker with redirection.
