PS4 Linux. Steam + Emulators + office out of the box

Post by D-ecks » Tue Jul 05, 2016 6:34 pm

Current version - 0.1.1

Pre-configured linux distro, based on Fedora 23 with kernel patches from Fail0verflow team.
Uses OsirisX's works (3d acc., steam).

Requirements:
  • PS4 with 1.76 FW
  • USB flash drive 8GB+
  • Any internet connection
  • USB keyboard/mouse
  • USB hub (optional)
Instructions:
WINDOWS

Download and unpack the image (How to Download Torrents Using uTorrent)

Use a program that can write dd-images. My choice is rufus.

Use settings as pictured below
Image

Locate PS4Linux_0.1.1.img and press Start


OS X
Download and unpack the image

Open Terminal

Type diskutil list

Locate your usb disk by size
It's should be /dev/diskX
Image
In this case X = 1

Type sudo dd if=path/to/PS4Linux_0.1.1.img of=/dev/rdiskX bs=1m

Enter your password and wait for some time.


LINUX
Download and unpack the image
Open Terminal

Locate your usb disk using lsblk or Disks
It's should be /dev/sdX

Type sudo dd if=path/to/PS4Linux_0.1.1.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1m

Enter your password and wait for some time.


NEXT STEP
Insert prepared usb stick into your ps4 and use Magic DNS (fastest) or any other way to boot linux.
All done. Password for root and ps4 is 1
Also, you can boot this distro on PC as any other live usb (F8 when boot logo appears).

Known problems:
Wifi and BT doesn't work (experimental solution look for wifi/bt kernel module)
No Sound
Ethernet works only in 1GBit mode

Installing games and programs:
Boot prepared usb stick as any other Linux LiveUSB on your PC
Configure Internet connection
Update Steam
Download and install anything you want (even wine)

Thanks for doing this. However, is anyone getting an invalid CRC error?

CRC error means zip-archive is not completely downloaded

CRC errors.. I've already tried downloading the file multiple times, and on multiple computers.

Screenshot2: https://gyazo.com/d45381ceead723a03c0466d77bbd1699

I figured it out.

Use winrar and open the file by double clicking on it.
Right click the img file and extract it to...
In the options that come up make sure you check this checkbox.

Everything should work as normal after that.
Ethernet seems to be working for me - I'm using a D-link gigabit switch and gigabit ethernet cable.
