From @SpecterDev also comes an update to Specter's Development Blog entitled [PS4] Root + Shell Invokation on PS4 4.0? Not so fast with a summary below on the PS4 4.0 Kernel Exploit / Jailbreak claims, to quote:
"He's made a few other kind of wild claims as well, such as the PS4 runs on PPC assembly. This is not correct, the PS3 ran on PPC as it used the CELL processor, however we know that the PS4 runs on Intel x86_64 assembly, you can see this when you dump modules from memory and look at them in IDA, as the instruction sizes are not even fixed (in PPC, instructions are all fixed to four bytes (so a NOP would be 0x60000000), where in Intel x86/x86_64 is variable instruction sizes (a NOP would be 0x90)).
Claims like this, especially to this degree, should be taken with a grain of salt if no tangible code is provided to give reproducible results, especially from someone that doesn't have much credibility in the scene. So those who are on 3.55 firmwares or lower, no, do not update until reproducible results are produced from an actual testable release."

And finally here's a bit of old PS4 SDK stuff that leaked some time ago from Robert Sebo (FB Removed - SCEDevNetwork on Twitter) for those who haven't grabbed it yet:
