Nope again.  They've always released the open source pieces they modified
for busybox, etc. but not their proprietary code and their SDK is being
released so you can add new content to their box, not open sourcing it so
you can hack it up to run something else.  What it may offer is a way for
MythTV to stream content to the Roku like Netflix does making it a possible
frontend but not one that runs Myth per se.
