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:

From the README.md, to quote: cecps4

Linux scripts used to control PS4 with single keyboard inputs.

The following three files are ran at startup on my Raspberry Pi to control my PS4 via cec commands, using normal keyboard input. "test" must be used as a startup script to run exactly when the devise is turned on. It will only work if it is run at startup. (Or if no other terminals have been opened.)

You will need the following utilities for it to work

Konsole:
Code:
sudo apt-get install konsole
