Following the Manjaro Linux PS4 v2 revision and recent updates, this weekend PlayStation 4 developer masterzorag announced Steam on PS4Linux running Fedora 28 using Mesa 18.0.1 on Radeon Liverpool hardware 1116A at 4.55 Firmware alongside a demonstration video of Kodi on PS4 Linux. :cool:

As great progress has also been made with Linux on Nintendo Switch, below are some recent Tweets from masterzorag for those interested on the PS4 Linux progress, as follows:

PS4 5.01 Linux Loader (WIP): https://github.com/Vultra/PS4Linux_5.01

From the README.md: PS4 5.01 Linux Loader

A simple payload that let you run Linux on your 5.01 PS4

WORKS! With XVortex *** (When Compatible for 5.01). Made by Vultra

How to build

Use https://github.com/xvortex/ps4-payload-*** to compile it. You also need to compile https://github.com/fail0verflow/ps4-kexec and place kexec.bin & kernel.elf into this folder. Compile kexec with make CFLAG='-DPS4_5_01 -DKASLR -DNO_SYMTAB'. (Note: DPS4_5_01 has not been added to kexec)

How to use

You need a FAT32 formatted (Mac OS) / Windows USB drive plugged in on any PS4's USB port with the following files on the root directory : bzImage and initramfs.cpio.gz. You can download them here.

Then you will need to send the payload (PS4-Linux-Loader-Vultra.bin) to your PS4. For that go to your PS4 web browser, go to 4.55 Exploit and send the payload to your PS4 using netcat or other.

For 4.05:

The driver work, but it's not full driver that can use all the potential of the GPU.
glxgears: 2700fps
Dolphins: less than 1fps
PCSX2: 30-50fps on Kingdom Hearts 2 FM+
Cemu: the game launch but with black screen
Wine Astroneer: 10-15fps
Blender: can't launch without llvm 6.0
