Yes, adb shell works.

> No way to plug USB keyboard?

A keyboard would not help, you can't focus the area I need with the arrows.
You need a mouse. It is also impossible to connect a Bluetooth mouse on the
Fire TV stick (only on the regular Fire TV [1]).

This is their smartphone app, it does not give you better control of the
UI, it is just a virtual remote.

So I guess the correct intent would be
com.wireguard.android.action.SET_TUNNEL_UP, but I guess I need to provide
the name of the interface as a payload? Thanks for the pointer, I'll dig in
the code to see how the payload needs to be provided.
