    I still prefer 500,000 times the Ps4 jailbreak it:)

    Seems like the scene always waits for ofw to hit 3.xx to ensure that the console survives until a kernel exploit hack is presented to the masses. Exciting times! Now I just hope that once the scene gets a good understanding of the PS4’s internal workings, the kernel exploits can generate cfw for consoles > 1.76 ofw.

    This would be the best thing ever. If we can run linux on ps4, that would be sick, plsss do it

    This is more or less useless as far as breaking the retail PS4 goes. It has almost nothing in common. Plus its missing most of the remotely interesting files. The only fun thing was the (partial?)copy of MSDOS 😛

    So pretty much: Move along – nothing to see here.

    Based on what I know of Sony’s development process (from PS2 and PS3 leaks), the only way this is real is if it came from a PS4 Q&A Unit. PS4 Devkits likely boot straight into the GameOS with a debug daemon accessible over network, just like PS3 Test & QA Units do, so there is no need for GRUB boot unless they’ve made a drastic change to their development workflow. Long story short, it’s probably just a stock FreeBSD install dumped and modified to mimic CTurt’s filesystem dump.

    all elf files are encrypted of course
