52w ago - After being inactive for a while since my previous release because I had a problem, finally I finished to create and fix my personal tools for PS3 PKG / SPKG for CFW 3.55 / 4.XX complete with source code.
This tools are based on failoverflow's tools, but with support for spkg files on CFW 4.XX, for for example, install a PUP directly from XMB or avoid to do a downgrade to 3.55 to install it.
A spkg file contains header/metadata for that pkg who has his name, PS3 on +3.56 checks his header/metadata for matching, if not fails and can't install. On FW 3.55 and below is not necessary that spkg files.
Thanks to Team failoverflow for the initial tools
Thanks to Abkarino
Thanks to Rogero, samkorg and santi1403 for test the tools

One question - I am on 3.55 MFW using the firmware builder app - can I just use the KMEAW install or is it safest to do a full reinstall of 3.55 first (installeed the MFW early on when the FW were getting developed and never had any probs so never changed).
Following up on my first release of spoofer PKG tools, I upgraded them to one PKG for each CFW for enable or disable Spoof (both functions in one) and with a GUI for enabling spoof (if something is wrong it will restore your PS3 files preventing a RSOD on the PlayStation 3).
Spoofer Tool for PC is updated too, the actual version is 5.0, now tools spoofer_pup.exe, spoofer_pup_repack.exe, spoofer.exe and a new one, spoofer_pkg.exe, are all in one, a new spoofer.exe tool upgraded
PS3 Spoofer Tools v5.0
Now you can choose version and image version to spoof and build a PKG with it to install in your PS3, is upgraded and fixed like other tools (keys.exe and extractor.exe).
The new options in spoofer.exe are:
help: Show info screen
files: Spoof single files (use extractor.exe or copy your dev_flash files in Spoofed folder) *
pkg: Spoof your files and build a PKG
pup_files: Extract PUP files and spoof *
pup_rebuild: Extract files, spoof and re-build PUP file spoofed
*: You must copy manually to your PS3 with this option
For example, if you want spoof with version 4.50 and image version 88888 and build a PKG (Remember navigate to folder in Cygwin console):
./spoofer.exe -pkg 04.5000 88888
Now you will see a PKG file named Spoofer Enabler & Disabler.pkg with your files spoofed
This enable (9.99) or disable spoof for your CFW, simply install *ONLY THE PKG FOR YOUR CFW* (CFW Kmeaw = PKG for Kmeaw) and run it in XMB, you will see the menu, first if you wish to continue choose "Yes" or if you wish exit to XMB choose "No".
If you continue program will ask you if you want enable spoof, and for disable in this screen choose "No" and you will be able to disable spoof. At the moment of enabling spoof, it will create a backup of your dev_flash files to restore and prevent RSOD
