I'm not sure what else to suggest. That sequence has been around for years, and should work on every single roku device. They definitely haven't removed or changed it. I've never seen it not work. Make sure you're at the home screen, and make sure you're hitting the buttons fast enough. If you go too slow, then it won't work.

@JoeMz, sorry, you've been blacklisted.  The app you tried to sideload most likely violated Roku's TOS.  I know of no way to remote the lock.
