    I havent been active in the community as of late but there was something i found that i felt was so important i had to come back and write one more tutorial. I found a way that you can run Linux on your PS4.

    Requirements-

    5mins of your time-

    Mouse and keyboard would be recommeded-


    1.Open up your browser on your PS4

    2.go to http://bellard.org/jslinux/

    3.This Linux Distro was built in javascript and was made to run right inside your browser and Since the PS4 Browser suppourts Javascript it will work.

    There you go Linux on the PS4, i know its only through the web browser which is kinda lame :/ But its a start and something we can all tinker around with

    I tested this on my Mac and it works fine I'm beyond positive it will work on the PS4 as well since it only requires javascript which the PS4 browser Suppourts, feel free to test this out and confirm

    As of 8:08 am CST i can now confirm this works

    This is pretty neat, but I think a name change for the title is in order, to prevent confusion.

    But I'll have to try this when I get home, seems like an interesting thing to mess with.

    Thanks for fixing the title i can see how it might have been a little confusing.
