I hadn't realized it worked at all because it doesn't work on my SageTV client (PC) nor on Shield TV. In my house it's the exception not the rule.

Android tablet which runs Mini Client?

Can anyone recommend an Android tablet which has the ability to run the Mini Client AND mainstream VPN services? My Amazon tablet does run the Miniclient, but does not have the proper core elements to allow VPN services to be installed and run.

I don’t want to get into rooting a tablet either, for the meantime at least.

The Amazon Fire tablet lacks “tun.ok” drivers, and the Android store drivers available don’t work, so, no VPN with Amazon.

What other Android tablets DO have NATIVE, tun.ko support for VPN services?

I have a 2021 Amazon 10" Fire tablet that works fine with Wireguard.

Have you looked at the Fire Toolbox tool? It it a easy to use GUI that allows you to add/modify the software on the Amazon tablets. It does not require that you root the device either. Using the toolbox, you can easily add the Google services that are missing. If that doesn't fix the missing software itself, I suspect it will allow you to install the missing software at that point.

I've used it on all my Amazon tablets and it is great for removing the "lock screen ads" as well as adding the Google services and removing the unwanted Amazon apps.

thanks everyone, should have been more clear - NOTHING from Amazon.

My main VPN service has requirements which their tablets can't be relied on for.

But thanks, I'll give this a try - getting rid of the lock-screens would be nice though

REMOVING LOCKSCREEN warning: since you removed your lockscreens, have you been chastised, harassed or denied service in anyway from Amazon? That warning Fire Toolbox throws up when you're about to remove the lockscreen seems fairly ominous....

Iíve got one, if need be. The portability of a tablet is my main need, for casting to tv, room by room

Never. I have had 4 Amazon tablets that I have used this toolbox with and never had any issues from Amazon. I still use 2 of the devices regularly - the other two have been turned in to Amazon through their "recycle" program.

I honestly don't recall that "warning", but it very well may be because I simply ignored it and went on about my business. I routinely root my Android phones, etc where these types of warnings are standard but harmless and are only "CYA" in nature. I'd expect the warning while using the toolbox to be similar.
