New software updates have started to make their way out to Fire TV and Fire TV Sticks. Fire TVs are being updated to software version 188.8.131.52_user_516011120 while Fire TV Sticks are receiving software version 184.108.40.206_user_122066120. These new updates are arriving less than a month after the previous software updates. Initial indication is that these updates bring only bug fixes and continued work on the upcoming shopping feature. When the previous updates arrived, we didn’t know at the time that they patched a serious vulnerability in Android, so perhaps these new updates are a continuation of that work. If you’re hoping to root your Fire TV device, you should block these updates for the time being and not upgrade past 220.127.116.11 on Fire TVs and 18.104.22.168 on Fire TV Sticks incase a new rooting method is released using the Stagefright vulnerability. As always, I’ll have an overview of these two updates once I get a chance to examine them closer.
