Some Questions About The Roku

I recently got a Roku Stick Model 3600X. I researched a bit and learned it is based off Linux internally.

So I wonder, is it rootable? I’m assuming the Roku uses the same permissions system as any Linux computer or phone. Is there any way to spawn a shell or something?

Nope.  There was a hack years ago, but it was quickly plugged.
