How to fix some mysterious problems.

Have iPhone4 with 4.1 JB Limera1n. Works perfect no complaints. Is there any advantage to undoing JB, upgrading to 4.2.1 (do I have to undo the JB?), and then usin GP to JB again? If there are, please elaborate. Thanks in advance.

The only advantages would be airplay and custom boot logos. Those are the main points of the that firmware.

There are minimal benefits to upgrading to 4.2.1...rule of thumb is if you don't need to upgrade don't.

As of now there is better cydia application support for may be favorable to stay at 4.1.
