Sounds like there's some conflict with either permissions, or the device not finding files it expects to be there. If you have SSH installed, you could try putting the files you removed back on.
I'm sure doing a DFU restore on your device will also remedy the issue - the downside being you'll have to reload your content, themes, etc.*Insert wit here*

You'll still be able to jailbreak, even if you load the latest firmware on since greenpos0n and limera1n have been released. If you're unlocked, however, you should probably stick to the lower firmwares.
SSH lets you connect to your iDevice like an FTP server over WiFi. What this means, basically, is that you can access your iPhone like a hard disc and explore the file-system so you can load a custom theme manually or transfer videos you've downloaded with MxTube to your computer. It's a pretty useful to have and all the tools you need are free.
DFU sounds scary but it's actually really easy and is the most thourough restore method out there. Below I've left some links to everything you need.
