Open Terminal.

Locate your usb disk by size. It should be /dev/diskX

In this case X = 1

Type:
Code:
sudo dd if=path/to/PS4Linux_0.1.1.img of=/dev/rdiskX bs=1m
Enter your password and wait for some time.

LINUX

Download and unpack the image.

Open Terminal.

Locate your usb disk using lsblk or Disks. It should be /dev/sdX

Type:
Code:
sudo dd if=path/to/PS4Linux_0.1.1.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1m
Enter your password and wait for some time.

NEXT STEP

Insert prepared usb stick into your ps4 and use Magic DNS (fastest) or any other way to boot linux.

All done. Password for root and ps4 is 1

Also, you can boot this distro on PC as any other live usb (F8 when boot logo appears).

Known problems:
  • Wifi and BT doesn't work
  • No Sound
  • No ethernet

About the root user

The user account named "root" is a special user in UNIX-style operating systems that has read and write privileges to all areas of the file system.

Because the root user has special privileges in OS X, it might be useful for specific administration or troubleshooting tasks, but it's not intended for routine use. If used without caution, the root user can make changes that can only be fixed by reinstalling OS X. Consider using an alternative such as the sudo command instead of enabling the root user. If you do enable the root user, disable it again after completing your task.

The root user doesn't appear in Users & Groups, Users, or Accounts preferences.

Important: If you are not familiar with the meaning of "root user," read this entire article to learn important information before using the root user. You must have an administrator account and password to complete the steps below.
  • Only the owner of a computer or its designated administrator(s) should have an administrator account or the root password.
  • Any user with an administrator account can become the root user or reset the root password.
  • A root password should be difficult to guess, containing both numbers and letters within the first eight characters.
  • A root user has the ability to access other users' files on the computer.
  • The root user has the ability to relocate or remove required system files and to introduce new files in locations that are protected from other users.
