SilentDragon Android

MyHushTeam's Twitter follow on Twitter follow on Mastodon MyHushTeam's Reddit

SilentDragon Android is an Android frontend for the desktop SilentDragon or SilentDragonLite that lets you send and receive shielded payments from your mobile phone. We are currently working on implementing Lite Wallet and HushChat functionality on Android, so follow us on our Twitter or Mastodon to stay updated. After this functionality is implemented, we are planning on making an F-Droid release.


The minimum supported Android version is 4.4.x KitKat. There are two ways to install:

  1. Via the Google Play Store.
  2. Direct APK install available at the Releases page. You will need to allow Install from untrusted sources on your Android phone in order to install from this source.

Running SilentDragon

In order to let your Android phone connect to your desktop, you need to run the desktop SilentDragon, and sync fully. This is not a full node on your Android (your poor battery!). It's a remote control for your full node.

Thankfully this should only take a short time with a fast internet connection! As the Hush network grows, it will take longer. As of Sept 2019, the blockchain is about 900MB on disk.

After your node is synced, go to Apps -> Connect Mobile App to view the connection QR Code, which you can scan from the Android App.


You can file issues in the issues tab.

We appreciate them! Please follow the Github issue template, when reasonable.

Compiling from source

You can also compile and run from source.

On OS X:

brew doctor
brew install ant
brew install maven
brew install gradle
brew cask install android-sdk
brew cask install android-ndk

touch ~/.android/repositories.cfg
sdkmanager --update
sdkmanager "platform-tools" "platforms;android-28"
gradle build

On Debian-based systems:

apt-get install -y android-sdk gradle
touch ~/.android/repositories.cfg
sdkmanager --update
sdkmanager "platform-tools" "platforms;android-28"
gradle build

Make sure you have Gradle 5.4.x or higher, 5.4.1 is known to work:

./gradlew wrapper --gradle-version=5.4.1

Or you can use Android Studio on Linux, OS X, or Windows:

Make sure to install ndkVersion 21.1.6352462.
Clone the repository and open the project in Android Studio.
Android Studio will automatically run the initial build process.
Click the Run button to launch the app after the build process is complete.

Release Build Process

The first time you create a release build you'll need to create a keystore file and prepare a properties file. The release keystore is used for app signing and a properties file is used to store sensitive information about the keystore. These files should not be committed to git. Once you have both of these files you can create a release build for the Google Play Store. For further information, click here.
