Many changes were made to the theme system in the update between SMF 2 Beta 3.1 and SMF 2 Beta 4.0. Its likely that your custom theme is not compatible with SMF 2 Beta 4.0, so you will have to wait until the theme author updates it.

It will only work with SMF 1.1.6 if the theme author has made it for SMF 1.1.x, if it is a SMF 2 Beta only theme, then it will not work because there are a huge number of theme changes between SMF 1.1.x and SMF 2 Beta. Either way, you should ask the theme author if they are going to make it compatible with SMF 2 Beta 4.0. ;)

Its not an easy or 'official' process. The topic below discusses it:

I would still recomend asking the theme author to update. ;)
