I like to use repurpose my old Amazon Fire TV stick, by installing WireGuard on it so I can access my media at home (I have a Wireguard server running on my firewall).

For this I would need to do 2 stings:

  1. Install WireGuard (which is not available in the Amazon App store)
  2. Install the config file for my wireguard connection so it can be imported.

--> you will need to have ADB installed on your computer (excellent guide).

 

Install the Wireguard APK

- Enable Developer options on the FireTV.

Got to Settings -> My FireTV -> Developer Options and enable (ON) ADB debugging and Apps from unknown sources.

- Download the Wireguard APK from F-Droid (optional: follow the link on the WireGuard homepage)

- Determine IP address of your FireTV (About -> Network)

- Install the APK

Open Terminal or a DOS box (depending what OS you're running)

adb connect <ipFireTV>:5555
adb install </path/to/the/wireguard.apk>

 

Push the config file

Next, Wireguard expects a config file, which needs to be pushed as well.
Adb helps with this as well;

adb push <wireguard.apk> /sdcard/

After transfer, you can find the file with Wireguard.
