I've got a ipad2 (wifi only,16GB) with 5.0.1 and jailbreak with absinthe 0.4 version,everything work well on the iPad .
after this,I've tried to put cydia.deb in the right ***/cydia/autoinstall folder ,restart the device for many times,but this did't work.
I also try to put the entire cydia.app folder in the /application , after that ,the cydia icon was back,but it just went down when I click the cydia icon,someone told me to set language to English ,which did't work;copy keyboard folder to the right place to overwrite the original folder,that fails too.
When I connect the device to my pc,the iTools and PP assistant (software like the iTools )they told me this ipad2 was already jailbreaken,but without cydia,this isn't perfect.As I did't have the shsh for iOS 5.0.1,only 5.1 and 5.1.1,it seems impossible to restore this device,then jailbreak again.even worse,absinthe can't re-jailbreak because it's jailbreaken,and redsn0w stuck at step which you turn on the VPN ,nothing happen.
SO,is there any way to fix or reinstall the cydia?
JailbreakQA has a very important "No piracy" rule, as noted on the "Ask a question" page. We can't help support people who use tools for getting paid products for free.
I am curious though - why did you ignore the warning that popped up when you uninstalled Cydia? Did it not make sense, or did you simply want to uninstall Cydia? Anyway, if reinstalling Cydia using the AutoInstall method isn't working, something deeper might be going wrong. You might want to just restore the device and wait for a new jailbreak to be released, and then be more careful next time (including not installing piracy tools and not uninstalling Cydia).
