Back when the 188.8.131.52 software update first rolled out to devices, you may recal I discoverd an affectionately named “Not In My House” app added by that update. It appeared as though the NIMH app was a dedicated system app meant to disable 3rd-party apps that Amazon didn’t want installed on Fire TV devices, although, to my knowledge, the app was never activated. Well, it turns out that the 184.108.40.206 software version on the new Amazon Fire TV Stick 2 no longer contains the NIMH system app. The Fire TV Stick 2 still has the separate code that disables FireStarter and Fired TV Launcher, but the newer NIMH blocking utility has been removed.
