Yep, straight over the top, if you are lucky enough to get appear on your homescreen afterwards, sods law you don't need it lol, so just open it and remove it via a button in the top left corner (I think...trying to remember)

Can you clarify? I have an untethered Jailbroke Ipad running OS 3.2.2 and wish to upgrade to 4.2.1 and re-jailbreak or keep my existing jailbreak. I can understand how to jailbreak a new non-jailbreak apple device, but have not been able to find much info on upgrading the OS on existing Jailbroken Ipads.
