To quote: PS4 - The State of Things Part II: Environment Analysis

Sadly there's no blueprint of the PS4's filesystem as far as I know, so how would we know where we want to go?

We need to collect as many information about the filesystem and it's environment as possible to even be able to determine our possible research targets and vulnerabilities.

For any PlayStation platform there are 3 good and legit ways to go for:

Way 1: Open Source Software & Open Documentation

Any Open Source Software used on the PlayStation4 is listed at [Register or Login to view links].
A quick look through them reveals that many licenses force SONY to distribute copies of the used software which for the PS4 are:

To quote: PS4 - The State of Things Part I: TitleID's

Yeah I'm still here! A lot of information was collected, analyzed and misused in the past months. I want to share an overview with you and I'll start with "Part I: TitleID's".

This post is not entirely about the PS4, it will include some information about the PSV as well.

Why are we interested in TitleID's?

Both the PS4 and the PSV use the known system of TitleID's to identify games and apps. Most of them are visible to you via either the Livearea on PSV or the menu of the PS4.

19w ago - Following up on Sony's official announcement and recent hints of PS4 System Software Update 2.00, today PlayStation 4 hacker nas stated the upcoming PS4 Firmware 2.00 Update will fix a potentially useful Webkit bug for developers although it's not related to the recent Nintendo Wii U Browser Exploit.

Below are the details, to quote: PS4 FW 2.00 will fix Webkit Bug

The upcoming firmware update for PS4 will fix a "useful" bug in Sony's browser. Useful as in "useful for people who have some x64 reversing skills".

Muchas gracias to Proxima

Yes, its not related to the bug used to exploit the Wii U.

Finally, from Zecoxao: my best guess will be that everyone will be looking for said bug now, seeing as they can downgrade if they have the dump from previous firmwares.
