Firstly we recommend that you connect a keyboard/mouse set to your Fire TV using the USB port at the back. This will make typing and navigating on Fire TV a lot easier. If you don’t already have a wireless keyboard/mouse set, I recommend either Mele F10-PRO or iPazzPort Wireless Keyboard and Touchpad with IR Remote Control. These TV box remotes allow you to control your device with minimum effort.
To begin you first need to set up the development environment where you can connect to your Fire TV and install apps on it (often referred to as “sideload”). Fire TV’s operating system, Fire OS, is based on Android which is fairly easy to work with if you’re familiar with Android. On this page you will find information on how to set up a development environment for Fire TV, how to connect, and how to install apps on it.
Before you can install VPN on Fire TV, you first need to “root” or jailbreak it. To learn how to root your Fire TV, follow the instructions here. Next install/sideload “Busybox” application. Don’t forget to disable the “Fire TV updater” at the end of the “rooting” procedure.
You can’t use VPN on Fire TV out of the box because it doesn’t have the library files that support VPN functionality; to add VPN support to your Fire TV we’ll next install two apps: OpenVPN Installer and OpenVPN Settings. OpenVPN Installer adds the necessary VPN binary files to your Fire TV, and OpenVPN Settings makes configuring your VPN easier.
Go to APK Downloader website to find and download the following apps: “de.schaeuffelhut.android.openvpn.installer”, and “de.schaeuffelhut.android.openvpn”. Make sure you remember where the files are saved!
Alternatively, you can install the above apps directly from Google play onto your Fire TV. Simply login to Google play search for and install “OpenVPN Installer”, and “OpenVPN Settings”. By default, Fire TV doesn’t support Google play, so you need to manually install and enable it.
On Fire TV, go to Settings ➡ Applications ➡ Manage All Installed Applications; scroll down to find “OpenVPN Installer” and launch it. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the OpenVPN binary files.
With the OpenVPN binary files successfully installed, we’ll next configure our VPN using the following steps:
