PlayStation 4: Linux Loader now ported to FW 7.02 thanks to @mircoho
Whenever a new PlayStation 4 firmware gets hacked, Linux Loader usually ends up being ported quite quickly as running Linux distributions can prove quite useful. Thankfully, firmware 7.02 is no exception as @mircoho just updated Linux Loader for this recently hacked firmware.
Linux Loader ported to FW 7.02
Continuing the trend of homebrew, utilities and payloads being updated for FW 7.02, Twitter user @Cedsaill2 reported that Linux Loader was ported to the newly-hacked Firmware 7.02 under 24 hours ago. As per a tweet announcing the release of Linux Loader for FW 7.02, @Cedsaill2 mentions that the individual behind the FW 7.02 port was @mircoho while also providing download links for the payload in .bin format allowing one to run Linux on their hacked PlayStation 4 console. This download link can be found below in the “Conclusion” section.
To demonstrate that Linux is indeed working on PlayStation 4 consoles running FW 7.02, @Cedsaill2 also posted a video on Twitter (below) showing the updated Linux Loader in action seemingly booting the Gentoo Linux distribution. In its current state, Linux on the PlayStation 4 is quite usable with the Gentoo Linux distribution available for the console having support for most important hardware features such as Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPU acceleration and audio on all PlayStation 4 models including the PlayStation 4 Pro with stuff like USB and internal HDD support varying depending on the model.
