Wiring Extruder Motor to Anet A8

I am installing a Titan Aero to my Anet A8 as an upgrade. My concern is the wiring harness from the Titan Aero to the motherboard. The 4 wires on the old Anet A8 harness were sequenced BLUE-GREEN-RED-BLACK, but the wire harness supplied with my Titan Aero are sequenced BLUE-RED-GREEN-BLACK. Do I need to reverse the green and red wires on the new Titan Aero harness to the extruder ?

Also, the wires from the thermistor are red and black, but the wires from the old Anet A8 are both white. Does the polarity matter from the new Titan Aero thermistor to the motherboard?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

In terms of the motor connections, first keep the orientation you currently have, if the motor is vibrating and not rotating try switching the middle two wires on the board connection side, this should then have the coil pairs connected.

The thermistor cartridge does not have polarity.
