TunSafe is unfortunately still closed-souce (AFAIK), and the wireguard developers have already expressed negative opinions against it [2], so I would rather use the official app instead. I am reporting here so that people interested in doing the same thing find this thread and know what has been attempted.

I guess it allows also a full shell... adb shell ?
No way to plug USB keyboard?
