Most Wireguard tutorials on the internet only give you the choice of hosting a server in a Linux environment. However, it is very possible to setup a windows server.
After searching for a tutorial to no avail, I spent a couple days to figure out the best way to do it and how to automate the process. Ideally you would still want to in an Linux environment, but if you have a use case for a windows server like me, you would appreciate just how flexible Wireguard is!
- Latest Wireguard Windows Client installed (Download here from official site)
- Setup firewall rules (just as you would for a Linux server setup: open and forward ports 51820, configure ddns etc)
Using Wireguard on Windows as server is not officially supported. Use at your own risk.
In my past experience of assembling over 15 systems or so for friends and family I have seen some mind blowing bugs and error codes. I’ve also heard some pretty weird anecdotes about how computer will only post if you perform certain rituals. However, this particular issue I’ve encountered with M.2 NVME drives with this particular motherboard blows all those stories out of the park.
Due to popular demand I have created a flashable zip from the official firmware released on 2016 July 12th (Version MM 30G)
The tutorial will walk you through the steps on how to properly root and install TWRP custom recovery on your Canadian Telus/Koodo LG G3 D852 (Also works for Bell/Rogers variants).
The common way to install TWRP on G3 is first to root the device and then use Autorec to install TWRP. This method is quick and dirty, but it can lead to problematic kernels which can break many functions (such as camera/phone not shutting down without battery pull) on your phone. This is why I strongly advise against using Autorec especially if you have the Telus/Koodo version of G3.
I will first explain the process behind rooting/bumping your phone, and why Autorec can cause potential problems. I will then walk you through the process of doing it properly.
