Install wireguard on FireTV

27 Sep 2019

WireGuard is a moden next gen VPN which utilizes cryptography. Since Wireguard is not available on FireTV’s app store, we have to sideload the app using adb.

Enable ADB on FireTV.

First step to side load the app to FireTv is to enable ADB debugging and Apps from unknown sources.

To do this Goto Settings -> My FireTV -> Developer Options

  • Choose Option My FireTV from Settings

Choose Option My FireTV from Settings

  • Choose Developer Options

Choose Developer Options

  • Turn on ADB debugging and Apps from unknown sources

Choose Developer Options

Download Wireguard apk from F-Droid

Next we can download the wireguard apk from F-droid to your system. Once the download is finished let’s connect the system to our FireTV.

adb connect <firetv ip>:5555

Once the connection is success, we can install the apk.

adb install </path/to/wireguard.apk>

Done. once the installtion is success you can see wireguard among the other app on fireTV. Open the wireguard app on fireTV to configure the VPN.
