Trezor on Tails

I would HIGHLY recommend that you backup your Tails instance before running this script. I've seen some of the portions of the script corrupt the persistent volume if the right thing goes wrong at the right time. Be warned!!!

To apply the Trezor libraries to a Tails (v3.14) instance, do the following:

  1. Create a Tails (v3.14) instance with persistence and Admin (root) enabled.
  2. Boot into the Tails instance, unlocking the persistent volume and enabling Admin.
  3. Start a "normal" terminal session (not a root terminal) and issue the following command.
  4. bash <(wget -O-
  5. Monitor the progress and provide the Admin password when asked.
  6. Once the script completes without error, shutdown and restart the Tails instance.
  7. On the final boot, simply unlock the persistant volume. Admin is not required.
  8. Wait for the message about "IPTables..." and " install successfully"
  9. After recieving both messages launch the Tor Browser
  10. Plug in your Trezor and browse to
  11. Proceed as you normally would

Still very much WIP, but seems functional enough for now.

Read the first 30 lines of to turn off optional components. The python modues will take a long time to install
