OS 10.5 has broken my Roku Ultra again!!

Ok, so my Roku Ultra updated a couple of weeks back to OS 10.5 and that's when the problems started. Eventually when I ran software update I was able to downgrade to 10.0 and all was working well again and I had my Roku Ultra back and functioning. 

A few days later and the unit auto-updated to 10.5 again and the thing is useless. Apps will take forever to load, may or may not play videos and if it gets confused enough the entire unit will just lock up and become unresponsive. 

How can I go back to OS 10 and disable any auto updates? My unit has now more or less become useless in it's current state. If I manage to get one app going the minute I try to go back to home and another app it just freaks out. The channel selected is no longer highlighted as well.
