In part, that’s because Apple locks down their hardware and software, and there are too many apps not in the App Store, such as technical and engineering and financial tools that people want, that Apple did not approve. Lizard Squad has claimed they’ve jail-broken the PlayStation 4 as of early 2015. Supposedly the jail break will get released, utilizing a bug in the FW 2.03. That means that PS4 has notice of what section of code to fix. Lizard Squad did have a prior PS4 jailbreak, that let people run ISO copies of PS4 games without authentication. The new break is supposed to be a chip, that lets you play games without paying, and go online without a PS Plus account. Is it possible you could jailbreak your PS4? Yes. Should I jail break it? Do a search on jail break PS4 and most sites will download malware to your device, while you’re trying to liberate your device.
The few non-malware sites are hacker forums that you should not be on, unless you want the NSA monitoring you. They’re already monitoring everyone.

The PS4 has more advanced hardware and software, including steps to prevent jail-breaking, via the addition of another chip or modified hard drive. So you think I cannot jail break the PlayStation 4. There’s a good chance that whatever software or hardware you get, turns it into a zombie under their control. And you’re at risk of bricking the console by adding hardware to jailbreak it.

In theory, death is a kind of freedom, but I do not think that was your intent. What should I do? Get a Steam compatible Linux version. You’ll have access to Linux tools and emulations to run PS4 games without paying Sony’s fees, and people who will help you out of principle. Otherwise, do not risk the console and your account.
