PS4 running Java Homebrew
Developer Zecoxao was able to get running various BD-J homebrew on PS4. Most assumed that it should work but nobody was sure 100%. Yes we can now run some homebrew on PS4 but donâ€™t expect this as a major breakthrough. This was also done on PS3 prior to its first jailbreak.

quote by aries2k via PlayStationHax:I have reached out to the developer of the original PS3 Minimal BDJ SDK to see if he could update it, so that it accommodates the PS4 control pad, also Blu Ray Java and Java in general should be more advanced now than it was back on the PS3 and with more power on the PS4, perhaps we could now implement sound and perhaps have better homebrew.
Here are some facts:
This is NOT a hack.
This is NOT anything major and will not lead to anything major.
This will NOT let you run PS4 â€œbackupsâ€.
This will NOT give you any access to the PS4â€™s OS system files.
This is NOT illegal.
This does NOT void your warranty.
This will NOT let you run PC games on your PS4.
This will ONLY let you run Java software.
We all know that this isnâ€™t any type of break through, it is using a system that is already in place, to run something that we have created ourselves, it runs from disc and does not touch any part of the PS4â€™s operating system, so do not expect anything huge from this.
If anything comes from this and the SDK is updated, do expect some fun homebrew and appâ€™s that we can use on our PS4â€™s.
This method will also work on the PS3 and should work on the Xbox One, not sure about the Wii U, but we wonâ€™t know until it is tested.
