Roll A Ball / Roll The Ball PKG, and today PlayStation 4 developer @LightningMods returns with a PS4 4.55 Homebrew W.I.P. (work in progress) package via Twitter for other developers to examine and eventually use as a template to build upon when he releases the requested source code.

Some screenshots are below, and to quote from his Tweet embedded below: Hello im releasing "4.55 Homebrew W.I.P" Not fully done its a W.I.P but here it is.
Also below is a PS4 System RW payload for 4.55 ONLY in the form of FTP+RW.bin, however, it comes with a WARNING to use CAUTION if you decide to give the unsandboxed FTP access and re-mount ALL system partitions as RW payload a try.
It can permanently brick your PS4 so don't use it if you don't know what you're doing and aren't willing to take the risk!
Download: PS4-System-RW-master.zip / GIT
And from the README.md file for those interested: PS4-System-RW
This Payload gives you Unsandboxed FTP Access and re-mount ALL System Partitions as RW (USE CAUTION) on FW 4.55 ONLY!
