Full Linux-on-PS4 hits Github

Full Linux-on-PS4 hits Github


Ever since fail0verflow first told Chaos Computer Club Sony PS4 machines could be persuaded to run Linux, a fair amount of work has gone into replicating his demonstration.
The problem for other PS4 hackers: to avoid take-downs and other sueballs from Sony, fail0verflow published only a Linux-to-PS4 port, leaving the rest of the world to discover the specific exploit used.
That unleashed a widespread effort, not only to find the best exploit, but to turn it into something stable.
According to this piece at Wololo.net, Githubber kR105 has laid hands on the grail.
The information comes with no warranty from The Register, because Vulture South doesn’t have a spare PS4 with firmware version 1.76 handy to experiment on.
However, this, Wololo writes, is not a demonstration video, it’s a “fully operational dlclose exploit” (referring to the Webkit exploit widely believed to lie behind fail0ver’s original disclosure).
