We extend our recent work and study implications of the standard model with four generations (SM4) for rare B and K decays. We again take seriously the several 2-3σ anomalies seen in B, Bs decays and interpret them in the context of this simple extension of the SM. SM4 is also of course of considerable interest for its potential relevance to dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking and to baryogenesis. Using experimental information from processes such as B→Xsγ, Bd and Bs mixings, indirect CP-violation from KL→ππ etc. along with oblique corrections, we constrain the relevant parameter space of the SM4, and find mt′ of about 400-600 GeV with a mixing angle |Vt′b*Vt ′s| in the range of about 0.05-1.4×10-2 and with an appreciable CP-odd associated phase, are favored by the current data. Given the unique role of the CP asymmetry in Bs→ψ due to its gold-plated nature, correlation of that with many other interesting observables, including the semileptonic asymmetry (ASL) are studied in SM4. We also identify several processes, such as B→Xsνν̄, KL→π0νν̄ etc., that are significantly different in SM4 from the SM. Experimentally the very distinctive process Bs→μ+μ- is also discussed; the branching ratio can be larger or smaller than in SM, (3.2→4.2)×10-9, by a factor of O(3)
