Blokada 5 - No Always-On-VPN AndroidTV?

Hi there I seem to be having some difficulty getting Blokada 5 to automatically start on boot with my Nvidia Shield (AndroidTV). Blokada 4 worked fine, however not v5.

Within the app settings, if I select ‘Start on Boot’ it just closes the app and doesn’t actually do anything, where as on my Android Phone it takes me to the Always-On-VPN setting within Android.

Is Blokada 5 fully compatible with AndroidTV 9? I did not have any trouble with v4.8.3.

  1. Downloaded from
  2. Nvidia Shield TV running latest Nvidia Firmware (Android 9).

Thanks very much for you time! :slight_smile:

In Blokada 5 Start on Boot takes you to the VPN settings to enable always on vpn. We have had a few reports that this option is missing on smart tv’s so i’m afraid you’ll have to use Blokada 4.x for now.

Thanks for your reply. Yes different experience on AndroidTV compared with mobile Android. Will use v4 until this is resolved.
