if you want to completely remove the jailbreak you would have to restore it through iTunes

If those icons are missing, try looking in a folder called "Utilities" on your springboard. If you came from a new reinstall of your iOS it will automatically put those icons into that folder that it creates. IF they still arent there, reboot your phone by holding down the power button until you see the "slide to power off". After it shuts down, hold the power button for like 2-3 seconds and it will reboot. See if they are there then.

IF not, try to do a full restore of your iOS 4.2.1 and those apps should still be put in the "utilities" folder by default.
I wouldn't have suggested this other than I know compass goes into that folder.

And the green skelton is normal for your Greenpois0n jailbreak. BUT to completely remove your jailbreak, just restore with 4.2.1 and its gone just as mdelaossa said. :)

Good Luck!

When I first Jailbroke my iphone about three hours ago and installed Cydia, I had the same issue. I simply restored my phone from iTunes......Once that was done iTunes asked if I wanted to use my Backed-Up info and put it on my newly restored phone......I said no, and began the jailbreaking process again. It worked like a charm. Once I had Jailbroken and ran Cydia, I used my back-up info and put it back on my phone. It works fine now.

sooo.....

  1. Restore iPhone from iTunes
  2. Do not sync to previous back-up
  3. Run the JailBreak and allow time for it to install properly (don't go pressing buttons)
  4. At restart, run "Loader" and install "Cydia"
  5. Once done, on top left corner button (options I believe), press and remove "Loader"
  6. Let the iPhone reboot
  7. Once done with all that, restore to your previous back up.
  8. Enjoy.

Here is a easy fix

  • Get iFunBox-Win or iPhone Explorer-Mac (Free iPhone file browser)
  • Connect you iPod and start iFunBox
  • Browse to the folder /var/mobile/Library/Caches/
  • Rename the file com.apple.mobile.installation.plist to com.apple.mobile.installation.plist.bak
  • Reboot your iPod and hope Loader will now appear.

Have you tried opening "Loader" and installing "Cydia" the rebooting your device after? This happened to me but got fixed after installing Cydia.
