No, if you're on 4.2.1 just run it over the top for untether, then open loader.app and select to remove it as there is no need to install Cydia again.

I have jb'ed successfully per your instructions, although I see no loader.app. Cydia works just fine. The only thing "buggy" so far is the carrier name is gone. Is the missing loader.app a problem?

No, coz you would of only deleted it anyway, the elusive loader.app showing has been hit & miss for alot of people this last few days. Don't why your carrier name is gone, try reboot or resetting network settings.

I suggest you do just to make the process safer and smoother. You don't have to but I suggest you do.
