PS4 Playground 4.05 Port and the initial announcement of PS4 Linux on 4.05 this past New Year's Eve alongside a PS4 Linux on Slim 4.05 OFW guide, today PlayStation 4 scene developer @Markus95 shared a guide and video demo of PS4 Linux Fedora on 4.05 Firmware with Steam and an emulators pack for those interested!
To quote from his blog article on Logic-Sunrise.com, roughly translated: PS4 Linux Fedora + Steam + Emulator Pack for 4.05
Thanks to @valentinbreiz who has released all the necessary tools to boot a Linux distribution on our PS4 4.05.
After several days of tests and a lot of galleys, I finally managed to run Fedora on my PS4 in 4.05.
Why did you choose Fedora and not another, all because this distro is compiled with some rather interesting surprises. Indeed, it already includes the 3D drivers of the team Failoverflow, a pack of functional emulators (Snes9x, PCSXR, and Dolphin) but also and especially Steam (PS4 DS4 Controller on Steam Tutorial).
You can play some retro games but also some games Steam (provided you have an account for the latter). It is possible to add other emulators or software (Paintown for example works ^^) and even your own ROMs.
Only one small problem, you will not have its unfortunately, but for a start it is already really excellent.
Fedora on PS4 4.05
Start by creating your bootable USB key with rufus respecting these settings:
- The Linux 4.05 payload HERE
- Rufus HERE
- Fedora Fail0verflow HERE
- USB key 8GB minimum
- USB keyboard / mouse
- USB hub (optional but practical)
Thanks a lot to Jad67Tony who helped me a lot with this USB key problem ^^
- Select the image of Fedora just download
- Then click on Start
- Once done, run the IDC kernel exploit on your PS4
- Plug your Bootable USB key into the rightmost port of your PS4
- Inject the linux payload 4.05 with NetCat mistletoe or other.
- Wait ... If you have a freeze or nothing that happens on the screen, changed usb key, I had to do 3 different keys to find one that works
