Mining on a ... PS4?

Hi guys,

just for the heck of it, has there been any talk about mining on consoles? I have a PS4 sitting around doing nothing.

Can you run linux on it?

You could run Linux on the PS3 when it first launched. But later they removed that feature with a firmware update. As far as I know nobody has been able to remove the hypervisor on a PS4 to install another OS.

It has a radeon with 1100 cores. You should expect half of the performance of an RX470(with 2048 cores) , of course if you can install linux(which shouldn't be a problem) and if you can find linux drivers for the gpu(I have some doubts here).
