How to fix some mysterious problems.

I had a 3.1 jailbroken by limera1n. Today I upgraded to 4.2.1 and jailbroke immediately. While jailbreaking the text was shown, but after rebooting I couldn't find loader icon. (Windows 7)
Is any advice?

Reboot and it should be there. Happened to me the first time and rebooting worked for me.
