Following his recent Gentoo PS4 and Ubuntu PS4 Beta Builds, today @cedsaill4 shared on Twitter a PS505_normal.bin 5.05 Loader Payload by @mircohoooo (aka Mircoho on Twitter) for installing Linux on the internal PS4 hard disk drive (HDD) alongside a demonstration video from IT Mania below! šŸ§

Download: LinuxLoader505internalhdd.zip (9.63 MB - PS4 5.05 Internal Linux Loader) / PS4 Playground 5.05 Linux

From the video's description, roughly translated:

:alert: ATTENTION: Everything you do, you do at your own peril and risk! :alert:

Works on FAT models and maybe Slim! (according to KiiWii on 10xx/11xx models only)

You can install either PSXITArch Linux v2 or another distribution (for example: Fedora 29 or Gentoo).

Installation order:
  • Create the boot folder and get / user / system / boot.
  • Copy initramfs and bzimage from the attached archive into this folder.
  • Create the linux folder and get user / system / linux and copy the Linux distribution image that you like.
  • Rename it to linux.tar.xz
  • Load the console and enter the command:
    Code:
    install-hdd.sh
  • After installation, enter:
    Code:
    start-psxitarch.sh
  • I had to reboot .. Done!
Thanks to Mircoho for this method.

For those using the PS4 Playground 5.05 Linux exploits.

I had troubles with booting back into Linux after installing succesfully to my HDD. the Linux Loader only gave me out of memory exceptions and the Install Linux on Internal HDD gave my kernel panic's.

But if I run it like this I seem to boot every time on first try:
1) Clean browser cashe and cookies
2) Run Linux Loader, get a out of memory exception, close the tab
3) Run Install Linux on Internal HDD
4) ...
5) Done :)

My model number: CUH-1004A
