I would say restore fresh then rejailbreak. It just eliminates any possibilities of issues.

What if everything is work fine no problems should one still rejailbreak? I meant well I just got everything loaded back on my iphone....

I think better to rejailbreak to fix any issues

Thanks Pietergoed. Do you or anyone know what the differences between beta 2 and 4 even are? Does it fix the battery fast drain? :) Thanks and appreciate that info on 4 going over 2 fine. :)

I just now ran GP beta 4 right over the top of my beta 2 JB and it did its exploit on the screen and all was well on my spring board. All icons, cydia and all were in there folders I put them in prior to the jb.
So going over tops of a 2 to a 4 is doable and appears to have went flawlessly. :)

Good Luck :)
