This didnt work for me on my fire stick , first hurdle was it said it was incompatible with my system but I downloaded it from the link at bottom of page,
It does say its connected but my ip doesnt change ,so I tried changing dns servers to that of pia but still not working,
I use a dd-wrt router with openvpn installed but just wanted to try this out
I'm actually using Fire OS 5.0.3 (532008220)
thought that might be the problem
you right, that is the problem, that os on that hardware does not have vpn files. Since there is no software root for a firetvstick I'll just assume The OP did not do the hardware root to put them their. Perhaps using a router with a vpn built in will solve the problem. Otherwise look here if and when your device gets rooted.
Yes, an android phone is not a ftvstick or box. Putting a vpn in the ftv line of products is not what amazon wants to do from a business model as they have arrangements to only send content to geographic regions they have licenses to distribute such content to. Natively running the vpn client on the device without root is most likely not going to happen and don't hold your breath for an update to allow it. I have been known to be wrong before, but I'm willing to place a pretty solid bet on this one. cheers.
