I think that is the "prep" ptf, not the actual TR 4. Keep in mind a initial PTF is issued that gets the system ready for the next TR prior to the TR coming out. Based on the IBM web site for TRs only three has actually been released as of now. Pete acually pointed this out in his original post.

Has anyone else applied this? After applying it to my test LPAR it still
shows Technology Refresh at Level 3. It is permanently applied so my
assumption (bad word I know) was that WRKPTFGRP would show TR @ level 4?

Read the cover letter on MF99004 carefully:

It supersedes 738 MF PTFs (Possibly a record!)
A SAVSYS is requested (I would say REQUIRED) before applying this
It requires ALL MF PTFs be permanently applied prior to itself
being applied.
It also must be permanently applied.
If you are upgrading from an image catalog this PTF must be on the
image catalog.
It may change sysval QPRCMLTTSK or processor multitasking mode.

group PTF hasn't been updated yet, MF99004 is out there. We were working
on a problem after a recent IBM I 7.1 upgrade, and IBM has recommended us
to install the PTF. Just remember that this is a delayed PTF, and might
be pulled in when ordering a PTF if it is in the dependency list.
