How to Install Linux on your PS4

Written by Tech84 on April 6, 2016

Yes that’s right, you can now install Linux on your PS4.

How to Install Linux on your PS4

First, your PS4 should be running on 1.76 Firmware, as of writing there is still no support for higher firmware (any above 1.76).


  • PS4 with 1.76 Firmware installed
  • USB flash drive
  • USB keyboard
  • Internet connection

What to do:

Note: You will need to get access to the browser from 1.76 without updating your console. How to do so is explained here.

And there you have it, installing Linux on your PS4 is as simple as that. You can use the USB keyboard if you want to do anything with the freshly installed Linux on your PS4.

Now what we are all waiting for is a working CFW for the PS4, and by the look of things, shouldn’t be too far off now.


“Not Enough System Memory” error when trying to launch Linux:

  • Make sure you’re on firmware 1.76.
  • Try rebooting your PS4 and then try again.
