What are the chances of getting an Android TV ROM put on the FireTV? Is the partial bootloader unlock that's out there enough to do this?

I'm curious what would happen if the Android TV Launcher was sideloaded on the FireTV? I doubt it would be that easy, but I know it's been possible to get Google Play Store working and linked to your account and the ability to show all apps.

Maybe someone with a little more knowledge can expand on this and what else would have to be packaged together for the TV Launcher to work properly.

My guess is it won't work because it requires lollipop stuff. I am currently working on a lollipop build. I have some time off work so maybe I'll be able to make some progress on it.

Give it a few weeks, I'm sure the AFTV will be updated to Kitkat at least.

I highly doubt that. The kernel that Amazon is using does not have a kitkat branch. Plus they really have no reason to do that.
