Why Installing Kodi on Roku Stick is Not Possible.
Kodi is officially supported on Windows, Android, Mac OS X, Linux, Ubuntu, and Raspberry Pi. It is officially supported only on these operating systems. But Roku does not use any of these OS. So, right now, there is no way to install it.
Kodi is a native c/c++ application Roku does not support (or rather allow) native C/C++ applications. So, the Team of Kodi can not do anything to make Kodi for Roku. If Roku decides to support c/c++ on their device, then we can see Kodi, but for now, there is no way to install XBMC.
Now you know that we can not install Kodi on Roku, but we can Cast Kodi content to Roku. It will not be as seamless as installing it on Roku, but at least you can stream Kodi content on your Roku.

The software of all Roku models is similar meaning they all are native C/C++ applications. That’s why the Kodi app for Roku is not possible until Roku changes its software.

How to Jailbreak Roku Stick (Can You?)
I have seen many people searching for JailBreak Roku or “How to jailbreak a Roku stick.”. Roku is not based on Android or any other Linux operating system, so you can not Jailbreak it or modify the OS to remove restrictions imposed by Roku. So, If you are searching for terms like “can you jailbreak a Roku,” then the answer is “No, You Can Not.”. If you also searched for this term, then I think you want to stream Pirated Content directly on your Roku. Sadly there is no way to do that directly, but you can install Kodi on a PC or mobile, and then you can cast the screen to Roku Box. You can not directly install Kodi on Roku, but casting the screen can do the work. If you have a TV with two or more HDMI ports, then you can also buy Firestick and put it on a second HDMI Slot.

Why Installing Kodi on Roku is not the best Idea.
Roku is the first Streaming device, and that’s why many people trust and Buy it. Even though it can not run Kodi and other Android apps, it completes the job of entertainment. You can stream pretty much anything on Roku except Torrent. Using is Torrent illegal in many countries like the US and the UK, and if you are from these countries, be careful and use any Good VPN service to protect yourself from the Police.
The best part of Roku is that it contains all the major TV series and movies, and all of them are legal, so no tension of Police while Kodi officially doesn’t support Torrent. Still, Third-party developers make Torrent add-ons, and if you use them, then it can lead you to the Police. So, If you are using Roku, then you are safe.
Other than this, Kodi is not at all stable, many sources on Kodi do not work correctly. You will face many issues and errors while running Kodi, which is annoying while watching movies and TV series. Official apps are very less. Only major apps are supported on Kodi officially.
