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 Developer Options
- Turn on ADB debugging and Apps from unknown sources
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.
