based on Stock kernel amazon 514006420 sources with just the following 2 features added:
  • Overclocked to 1890MHz
  • init.d support (place files in /etc/init.d/ folder)

Since there is no known way to get into recovery with a bad kernel (yet), therefore it flashes only to the recovery partition for your safety. When you are done testing flash rbox's recovery back to the recovery partition.

prerequisites:
rbox's unlocked bootloader
rbox's latest recovery


instructions:
  • in CWM - flash zip
  • advance -> reboot recovery

When you boot into recovery the new kernel will boot, when you boot normally your stock kernel will boot. You will not have recovery until you flash rbox's recovery again.

Flash at your own risk!

Curious, what are the benefits of overclocking the Fire TV?

Well it is called FIRE tv... so you can hope it lives up to it's name and catch on fire... Of course it's partly joking...

The FireTV has a MASSIVE heatsink.

What about the Adreno GPU?
Can you overclock Adreno320 from 400MHz to 450MHz or 500MHz?

Here is an old topic I made which has a directory I found that contains the Adreno clocking files...

I don't really use it that much and it wasn't slow before, so not really but here are my antutu benchmarks with GPU OC to 450, post yours and we can compare:

Can you try out Mupen64Plus AE with those overclocked rates?
You can get a nice dev build in this thread to test (I also have it) that fixes DK64 collisions and stops Banjo-Tooie from crashing.

http://www.paulscode.com/forum/index.php?topic=1797.0

Try running Banjo-Tooie with my "no frameskip" code.
There is now a cheat editor built-in on this dev update,so you can easily add it to the cheat list.

No Frameskip
8007913F 0001

It normally lags quite a bit for me,please tell me how well it runs for you with overclocked CPU and GPU rates.

@jmandawg Hi, If it possible for you to enable the kernel exec (kexec) to allow us run linux kernel and I did asked @rbox to add the kexec support for CMW recovery. I think the kernel with kexec enable so it will allow cmw recovery with kexec enable boot linux kernel. rbox still figure how do it. I couldn't risk overwrite recovery partition with linux kernel due the kernel itself tend over 20mb which is the recovery partition only has 10mb space.

Otherwise I tested benchmark on my AFTV got 29301 score (stock) and am going test this overclock kernel to see how much improvement.

thanks again...


*UPDATED* I ran your overclock kernel, It apparently that benchmark went decreased to 26414 score vs amazon stock 29301. I puzzled. Something is going wrong. Maybe I should reset factory and reinstall fresh rbox's pre-rooted then re-test benchmark stock rbox pre-rooted vs overclock kernel again.

There's a pre built fedora kernel that works already in the fedora thread.. No need for kexec or unlocking either..
