But it needs some testing and tuning.

Some details:
  • Completely configuration-free, you only need burn it as usual live usb image
  • Works on PC (boot as live usb) and PS4
  • LXDE desktop (windows-user-friendly)
  • Installed steam
  • Installed some emulators
  • Requires USB 2.0 8gb+ flash drive
And it works ONLY on 1.76 FW
Is anybody want test it?

Post your request here and I'll send you torrent and instructions (how to burn it on usb-stick).
Video will be uploaded tomorrow and public release will be in next few days (after some testing).

I think not enough free space to start steam.

You can extend free space if your pendrive is over 8GB. Open terminal (lxterminal), type sudo gparted, select your pendrive, in should be /dev/sdc. Then select second partition - sdc2 and resize it to unallocated space.

Can you elaborate on this,I'm not good at memorizing commands so I don't know which commands to use to resize my partition..
