Good News for those that having been keeping their PlayStation 4 consoles at a low firmware level, as now its even more simple to get your PS4 up and running a complete Linux setup, thanks to the hard-efforts of D-ecks to put together a nice ‚distro‘ for all to enjoy!
Current version – 0.1.1
Pre-configured linux distro, based on Fedora 23 with kernel patches from Fail0verflow team.
Uses OsirisX’s works (3d acc., steam).
- PS4 with 1.76 FW
- USB flash drive 8GB+
- Any internet connection
- USB keyboard/mouse
- USB hub (optional)
- Download and unpack the image (How to Download Torrents Using uTorrent)
- Use a program that can write dd-images. My choice is rufus.
- Use settings as pictured below
Locate PS4Linux_0.1.1.img and press Start
- Insert prepared usb stick into your ps4 and use Magic DNS (fastest) or any other way to boot linux.
- All done. Password for root and ps4 is 1
- Also, you can boot this distro on PC as any other live usb (F8 when boot logo appears).
- Wifi and BT doesn’t work
- No Sound
- No ethernet
Installing games and programs:
