If it worked the first time then yes you will always get it.

Earlier versions of GP didn't install the "animate" file to everyone that prevented the skull from appearing on some devices.

Do you want the skull or not? you can also change it, just search in the Cydia repos for Boot Logo and you will find many that require JB by GP, anyone of these will work with your GP JBed device.

Also with the boot logo addon you can select the normal apple logo

If you want to get rid of it altogether, just go into the filesystem using tool/app of your choice to /usr/bin and delete/back up the 'animate' file you find there.
