If I want to unjailbreak my iphone 4, can I just install the latest iphone software on it and that will do it?

It is out of warranty and I don't need to take it back to the apple store for anything.

Yep! Why not just enjoy your jailbreak though? :)

My battery doesn't last lately. I've uninstalled everything and it's almost dead by this time of day. I've tried all the stuff to make my battery last and it still doesn't help. I went to a movie for 2 hours today and didn't use my phone and it went from 44%-13% while I was watching it :(

Really? How would u know if it's a bad jailbreak? It has been awhile since I did it. I think I used the green poison one and followed the directions. Maybe my phone is dying? Would that be possible? I've had this phone since the iPhone 4 came out.

Before you do anything else, go to Cydia and install BatteryInfoLite. It's free, and it will give you a picture of your battery's current maximum capacity. Most year old iPhone 4’s aren't experiencing the kind of loss you're seeing, and max capacity should still be relatively near to design capacity.

BatteryDetective (also on Cydia) will give you more specific information about what backgrounded apps are running your battery down. That one's a paid app, but those who have it say it's well worth it.

That really. Greenpois0n was bad (in my opinion) anyway. I always stick with Redsn0w but I'm not sure which version does an untethered 4.2.1 (if any). I tried RC18 yesterday and all I got was a blank Cydia icon that wouldn't open Cydia. I would recommend updating to 4.3.3 and using jailbreakme or Redsn0w but unfortunately with the release of 4.3.4, that is no longer possible for you. :(

Maybe try restoring to 4.2.1 with iTunes (if you have your SHSH saved) and then re-jailbreaking?
