Are any of these Android TV dongles "open"?

    I see lots of these dongles around - and they do look interesting - but are any of them "open" or provide regular and free OS upgrades? If not, i'm thinking that in a year or two, this item will just be useless unless there is a community behind it.

    1) The device is not locked down in such a way that prevents you from re-flashing it with your own Android image.
    2) The vendor has an open mind with regards to software modifications, additions to this unit and provides a toolchain to compile your own images, and possibly even use this device for other purposes than it was intended.
