  1. So, there’s no modification being done to the Roku at all. KODI is being downloaded and controlled by another device (laptop, phone, tablet, etc), and being “beamed” to the Roku. Many TVs don’t even need the Roku for this. The Roku is being used for its intended purpose (though I can’t say the same for the device being used to send the signal). Why bother calling it “jailbreaking”?

    • Because users search “jailbreaking” but are looking for the solution we mentioned. In order to get to the users we need to use the keywords they are searching for.
