We wish Roku allowed us to do that! The normal rooting that can be done with the Android and Linux Operating Systems is not possible with Roku, because Roku operates on a separate operating system called Roku OS.
So, instead of answering the question “How to jailbreak Roku and activate Kodi?”, we’re going to answer the question of how to watch Kodi on Roku. Kodi is an open source home theatre application developed to make your experience with the TV a better one too. They provide wallpapers, storage space for your movies, music, photos and albums and they provide a few titles and songs to stream and choose from. While Kodi, the open source content management software is by default not available on Roku, you can watch it by some other means as well.
