    YES!

    EDIT: Oh, only PS4 FAT models are supported at this point.

    It's a port so it's fair to assume any restrictions that applied to the 4.0x version will also apply to the 4.5x version as well.

    And nowhere it says it supports the Panasonic MN864729 HDMI adapter, and believe me, it doesn't even support all the fat models.

    It's pretty much just for the 1.76 people who updated since they had early fat models.

    Most people can't run this.

    I'm not that smart, so can someone explain to me why would someone want to put linux operating system on a game console? :blink:

    I think the simple answer is: Because they can. =)

    So, now that Linux displays correctly on Slims and Pros does anyone have a img that's compatible? I downloaded a PS4 Fedora img and flashed it to a usb drive but got static fuzz on screen when booting it?
    I think the img must be updated with the new display fix?

    I'm still not able to get this to work :( Is there anyone here with a Slim or Pro willing to see if they can get it to work? Linux is not my thing :P
    Preferably the PS4 Fedora img since it has Dolphin, PCSX and Snes built in ;)

    This is what happens when I try with the new Slim/Pro fix..

    It depends what it's trying to launch, with the 8 penguins at the beginning it looks like the Gentoo image used by Fail0verfl0w, so I would guess it's the old X.org (not Wayland) and it's probably trying to launch the XFCE session.

    You should find some info in /var/log/syslog or /var/log/kern.log, the location of the X logs have changed lately on Debian (they are in the user home dir but there's Wayland and Gnome involved).

    I will take a look if I find time later.

    UPDATE..
    I FINALLY managed to get some sort of Linux distro to run on my CUH-2016A PS4 Slim!
    I got Ubuntu to boot by following this tut ;)

    Of course I'd much prefer to get the Fedora PS4 img working since it has the 3D drivers support from Failoverflow and has PCSX and Dolphin Emulators built in ;)
    I'm guessing the Fedora img needs updating to support the new slim/pro fix??
    Ubuntu runs quite slow on PS4 :P
    But at least I we can confirm Slims can now display Linux correctly!
    Thanks to eeply fro the fix.. https://github.com/eeply/ps4-linux/releases

    UPDATE 2: Found this from Logic Sunrise.. http://www.logic-sunrise.com/news-981270-ps4-manjaro-linux-ps4-v1-disponible.html Apparently this Img has a handful on Emulators built in ;)
    (In going to try to install this img to see if its any better.... Watch this space) :P
