    Default Is there a jailbreak for the Roku like Apple TV?

    Is there any software that can jailbreak the Roku? Would be nice if there was at least a built-in browser or something.

    As far as i know, there is no unofficial software for the Roku.

    Thus a jailbreak doesnt make sense.

    There isn't a jailbreak for the Roku, but there are a couple of things you can do to hack the device a bit.

    Playon.tv - There's a one time subscription cost for playon but it really opens the doors for content availability and usability of the Roku.

    You can also set your Roku to stream media from your computer by setting up a webserver. Instructions here: Hack Your Streaming Set-Top Box | TechHive

    As suggested, there's PlayOn, ($) and free scripts and plugins for it, as well as PLEX (free). There is also a free channel from PlayOn called "My Media" that lets you serve media from your computer. All require you to run server software on a computer on your network. There are also some apps for android and i-devices that let you control your Roku over your network.

    But a direct hack to run a different OS, or a web browser, NO.

    I use both PlayOn (worth every penny for Hulu free and YouTube alone!) and Plex, as well as a number of "private" channels for my Roku.

    Here's a blog post on the subject:

    Default Problem with PlayOn subscription

    I signed up for the lifetime PlayOn subscription but now it's asking for my provider login for most of the channels and the ones it doesn't I could have gotten on the Roku without PlayOn. What am I missing here? That doesn't help me "cut the chord" with satellite or cable.

    It's asking for a pay tv login. Yours, or perhaps you have a friend, if you get my drift? There are also plugins for various channels, too. Check here: http://playonscripts.com/

    The Jailbreak would not be possible, so don't expect much for it.

    There is no software for Jail Break Roku as of now. There are some videos on Youtube but all those are just a video explaining stupid things. Technically, there is no way to jailbreak Roku.

    Cool Kodi on roku

    Currently, most people trust Roku, and it gains ultimate popular among the people who love to stream latest movies and TV shows without any cost. Roku doesn’t run Kodi and some other Android apps but still it remains the best option for entertainment because it fulfills needs and requirements of the people. Except for torrent, you will get all the contents on Roku because it is illegal in UK and US. In that situation, you can use torrent with any VPN Service.
