    Someone loves linux in a big way, heres more Linux News:

    It is still a 'work-in-progress' project, so don't rush and update from v4.55 firmware just yet, as payloads, and exploit hosts need updating, but scene developer @C0rpVultra says its occurring and has launched his WIP GITHub page, and is busy putting together the final bytes.
    hackinformer said:
    It’s just a matter of time and being patient for things to happen on FW 5.01 as plenty of developers told us to stay on that FW if we cared about homebrew. Well, hopefully, today we’ll be able to finally run Linux on FW 5.01 with a little bit of compiling thanks to Vultra.

    PS4 5.01 Linux Loader
    A simple payload that let you run Linux on your 5.01 PS4
    WORKS! With XVortex SDK (When Compatible for 5.01 ). Made by Vultra

    Linux released for the Nintendo Switch, here the details:

    There is ton of info regarding getting Linux up and running on your Switch since the big explosion of frozen rocket payloads for Nintendo Switch, but its filled with complex setup, different distros, patches needed, and still missing info, but GBATemp'er @natinusala has assembled what he calls Painless Linux, so those that want to be on leading edge of Switch payload development can check it out:
    Grab it while it's hot: https://github.com/natinusala/painless-linux Everything is explained in the README of the repository.

    Now you can boot Linux from any system (Windows, Mac OS, Linux or Android), without any extra work :

    1. Download the disk image
    2. Burn it on your SD card using Etcher or dd
    3. Clone or download the repository and use the provided scripts (for Android you need to copy 2 files)

    The system is an improved version of @00Cancer's GNOME Arch Linux image :

    • sudo
    • chromium browser
    • scripts to manage GPU clock profiles (courtesy of @Gigaa)
    • SSH server enabled by default
    • automatic root filesystem expand to fit your SD card

    I will try to keep it updated, with incremental updates, if applicable. I will also keep this post minimal, as everything is already in the README.

    Have fun with your almost functional Linux!

    Now its not perfect, no Linux is YET on the Switch, there is still 'battery discharge issues', 'WiFi issues', 'LCD burn-in problems', and various other smaller issues, so as the tutorial author above suggests you must read the README before trying it out, and accept the risks, and understand the issues, and be patience for updates by the teams involved to finish making this less-painless Linux.

    Its always great to see homebrew being released on consoles and especially if you dont have to rip them to bits, heres the release notes:

    RetroGamer is back with yet another one of his great emulator packages this time for the PS4 consoles!
    Hi guys, following my last update regarding the topic of a GameBoy Emulator for PS4 here is an early PS4 GBEmu Beta. Still many things to fix. Even the sound is ok under Windows Unity Editor, it does not work well in PS4. It looks to be a problem of frequencies.

    Here is the PKG for downloading. I've included just one ROM which is Super Mario Land 2. Some more GB / GBC ROMs can be found courtesy of SCORPION1399 below:

    Download: ED1685-NPXX51385_00-0000000000000000-A0100-V0100.pkg (58.8 MB) / GAMEBOY_1483_ROMS.rar (170.2 MB) / GBC_1005_ROMS.rar (GameBoy Color ROMs Pack - 462.8 MB)

    There are 2 main things still under development:

    1. First one is File Manager integration to load ROMS. This is easy to do using the File Manager you could see some days ago. To complete this task it would be great some of you could do a big package of all ROMS as he can and make me available for download it. I will add it to the compilation.
    2. Second one will be fix the sound issue.

    Hope you enjoy.

    Nice to see the PSVita get new releases, heres the release notes:

    Recently, there been alot of talk about using the 'Unity' game development engine, and now developers @SilicaAndPina have put together some handy UnityTools to make it easier to get your games up and running on your hacked/modded PlayStation Vita.
    Arguments:

    • -i Input DIR
    • -o output DIR
    • -f Fix the "Unsafe homebrew" bug (that prevents the game from launching if unsafe homebrew is enabled)
    • -u Remove the "trial version" watermark caused by development license in the bottom right corner
    • -r Remove unused files from your build
    • -p Pack to "PC HOSTED" builds to .VPK
    • -d Remove input directory after packing into .vpk

    Also, after building a "PC HOSTED" application with UNITY. you can just drag n drop the folder onto the application and it will run: -f -u -r -p -d on it.

    New for PS4:

    Soon, hopefully we will see nice PSXITARCH for v5.01, but for now the nice scene folks over at PS3ITA have assembled, basically the best 'Linux Distro' you can run on your exploitable v4.05 or v4.55 PS4 consoles, so good it runs Kodi, RetroArch and More!
    UPDATE of 05/05/18: Fixed the name “Arch Linux”, added English translation (thanks to “AdZx”) and a trick to improve the FPS in some games and emulators.

    Psxitarch is a linux distribution for PS4 based on Arch Linux, developed to be light, with low resource usage and easy to install.

    It includes the graphics drivers (radeon drm, radeonsi) needed to use 3D hardware video acceleration, kernel 4.14.14, support for * bluetooth, * wi-fi, ethernet and USB sound cards.

    INSTALLED APPLICATIONS

    • Window manager: jwm
    • Terminals: lxterminal, xterm
    • Web Browser: midori
    • Network Manager: wicd
    • File manager: pcmanfm
    • Emulators/Games: steam, retroarch (MULTI EMU), mupen64plus (N64), snes9x (SNES), epsxe (PSX), ppsspp (PSP)
    • Utilities: playonlinux (Gui for wine), leafpad (Text editor), htop (System monitor), xreader (PDF viewer), xarchiver (Archive manager), blueman (Bluetooth manager)
    • Multimedia: gpicview (Img viewer), xnoise (Audio/video player)
    • Other..

    NOTES ON APPLICATIONS

    If you have installed a new program and want to make it show up in the main menu go in Jwm Config and select Updates Menu

    If you want to start Steam use the voice Steam (Native), only if a game does not work use Steam (Runtime).

    In Retroarch you will find only a few preinstalled cores (mame, genesis, turbograf and nes), you can install others by starting a retroarch and going to Online Updater and download cores. Some cores may require bios to function properly, copy them into /home/psxita/.config/retroarch/bios.

    For those who ask, we have not included dolphin-emu in the distro because the recent versions in the repo and git do not work properly on PS4. We have compiled an old version and it seems to work with a simple “workaround” (you have to start dolphin together with glxgears), if you are desperate we can let you have it.

    Kodi, has not been included in the distro for reasons of space, but you can easily install it and it should work without any modification.

    IMPROVES FPS STABILITY IN SOME GAMES/EMULATORS

    Open a terminal, write in fglxgears leave the program run, start the game/emulator you want play.

    AUDIO

    Audio via HDMI is not working but there are various ways to get around this

    • Use a USB sound card (found at a euro on ebay)
    • Streaming via bluetooth (if working) audio (you can use bluetooth speakers or headphones)
    • Use the Dualshock 4 (or the Nacon Revolution) connected via USB with a pair of headphones

    *WIFI/BLUETOOTH

    The wifi or/and the bluetooth may not work on some PS4 or be unstable, the reason is not yet clear (does not seem to depend on the model of PS4)

    COMPATIBLE PS4 MODELS

    Psxitarch supports all PS4 models except PS4 PRO.
    On PS4 PRO the 3D hardware acceleration does not work, you will be relegated to that software, the reason you can find it here:
    http://www.ps3ita.it/forum/post43087.html#p43087

    INSTALLATION:

    Requirements:

    • A USB device (3.0 recommended) formatted in FAT32 of a size no less than 12GB
    • Hub usb (optional)
    • Keyboard
    • Mouse
    • The payload to start linux: Download per fw 4.55Download per fw 4.05
    • The bzImage (kernel): Download md5: 85d3a15a22380591f5519122f436c7ba
    • The initramfs: Download md5: a3e4d2e6a15fea750ed4e8cccacfa112
    • The psxitarch.tar.xz file (the distro): Download md5: 26bae18ccc2e2173109a7fd954657c08

    IMPORTANT!!
    The USB device that you will use will be completely formatted, all the data will be deleted!!

    1. Copy the initramfs, the bzImage and the psxitarch.tar.xz file to the root of the USB device
    2. Connect the USB device to the PS4, if you have connected other USB devices disconnect them (you must have only one USB device connected)
    3. Start the exploit
    4. Start the payload
    5. Wait a few seconds, the screen should go black and then the rescueshell screen will appear
    6. Connect the keyboard, write: exec install-psxitarch.sh (the keyboard layout is set to US, to write the dash you have to use the key ')
    7. Wait until the distro is installed (you should see a long list of files that are copied to the USB), the installation time varies from USB to USB (if you are crazy enough to install the distro on USB 2.0 it should take about 25 minutes)
    8. After the installation the distro should start by itself and show you the login screen, if it doesnt start, write exec start-psxitarch.sh (from the next restart the distro should start alone, you will not have to write anything)
    9. On the login screen, enter your username psxita and password changeit
    10. Enjoy

    THANKS!

    Heres a nice release for the PS4:

    Logically, all PS4 firmware 4.05 / 4.55 (FAT / SLIM / PRO) should now be able to launch and use Manjaro Linux, which I pre-configured by default.
    I have also opened a wiki page on which everyone can refer as PS4 specific documentation, and contribute to it. I also uploaded multiple videos to give you a small preview of the rendering.

    And to be clear, the progress made by the latest patches of the team Psxita are very large, but we are still far from exploiting the full potential of the console on the side of the GPU, there is still work, but, it is already a good start, the homebrew scene now fully open to the PS4 as it now becomes possible to use and play most emulators without the PS2 emulator built into OrbitOS.

    Similarly, we can enjoy wine for some PC games, and Steam under Linux & Windows (via wine, always). It is up to everyone to bring what he can to advance the scene on this point. As some had asked me, I also preinstalled RetroArch, with multiple emulator hearts ... You should have something to do!

    I also split in two the file to restore, on one side the fat partition containing the last Eeply kernel and the initramfs which boots on Manjaro, on the other the ext4 system partition. I made this decision so that everyone can adapt the distribution to his situation, and maybe a developer will eventually find a way to boot Linux from the PS4 without having to go through a Payload.

    In the videos, the OS may seem a bit slow, but in reality it's because it starts from an external hard drive, I strongly advise you to use a SSD + SATA adapter => USB 3.0 to take full advantage of Linux on your console.
