Do you have mobile terminal installed?
if you do, open it, type su then enter, password is alpine, then type "apt-get remove cydia" (without quotes) once that's finished type "apt-get install cydia" (again without quotes) I had a similar problem & fixed it like that.
Hope this helped. & happy new year btw.

Some reason, it retrieved an incorrect signal from my repo. What youll want to do to fix this, is navigate to /tmp/cydia.log through SSH. Youll want to take a looksie in it with a text editor. Notepad on Windows, TextEdit on Mac. It will have a crash log. It will have a description of the file you need to edit.
Just navigate to the directory it says, change it, and it should work again! DONT RESTORE!!!!!

1. apt-get install com.bigboss.poof
2. apt-get install com.bigboss.bossprefs
4. Launch BossTools and unhide Cydia
Worst case scenario, if nothing works, you can use WinSCP and delete the files located at /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.SpringBoard.plist and the reboot your phone.
If you deleted the cydia application, you can try re-installing cydia using apt-get from an SSH terminal.
1. apt-get remove cydia
2. apt-get install cydia

Lads if you need Cydia and deleted blackra1n, you can run Blackra1n again from a PC, it's not going to remove anything. I've had to do it twice and numerous more times for a friend.

The easiest way to get cydia back is to follow these instructions.
What you need:
Way#1(easiest): iFile, Safari Download Manager
Way#2(kind of easy): iPhoneExplorer(on ur PC)
Way#1:Go to this link on safari. Press open in iFile, press installer from the bottom of thing. Do a full reboot.
Way#2: Step 1: Open up your iPhone’s filesystem on your desktop
Step 2: Navigate to the folder /private/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall (If you don’t have the Cydia or AutoInstall folders, you just need to create them. They are case sensitive.)
Step 3: Drag and drop the cydia_1.0.3366-1_iphoneos-arm.deb file that you downloaded into the AutoInstall folder
Step 4: Do a full reboot of your iPhone
