PS4 Filesystem Root dump released, confirmed to be from a Devkit unit on a beta firmware
Zecoxao released a link of what seems to be a dump of the Filesystem off a Devkit PS4 unit. The release is a link to a file hosted on MEGA, sent via pastebin, that Zecoxao released on Twitter. It does not get any more meta than that, and it is unclear if the pastebin/MEGA links are from Zecoxao himself.
The files appear to be legit and match the screenshot that was posted yesterday on PlaystationHax. It could be an elaborate hoax but this is unlikely: several people have now implicitly confirmed this is real, including Mathieulh, one of the most prominent hackers of the PSP/PS3 scene.
@zecoxao isn’t that the dump I have sent you ages ago? With Orbisys and all?

This is apparently a dump from the filesystem of a PS4 devkit running on firmware 0.8.2, and is several months old. It appears that one reason to release this now is because the files are “100% useless”, according to Zecoxao. Earlier this week, Zecoxao had linked these files with the PS4 on Linux upcoming announce from Fail0verflow, but it’s becoming unclear to me how the two things are connected.
