How to fix some mysterious problems.

My Cydia screen turned black and I cannot view it in order to remove conflicting or offending tweak. I have already tried all the usual such as bypassing mobile substrate but the screen remains black with icons at the bottom. After switching all the sections at the bottom the screen remains black which makes it impossible to view or change anything. It seems my only choice is to restore my iPad 2. My first question is " is there an outside chance that i can re-jailbreak my iPad 2 while it's already jailbroken in order to possibly " fix " this black screen issue. My second question is " do I need to restore from the last cloud back up before jailbreaking in order to un-jailbreak it then re-jailbreak it if just simply attempting to jailbreak it while jailbroken won't work or do I need to completely restore to factory and reload from the cloud?

It seems to me you may have damaged it beyond repair. Your only option would be to restore. You CAN re-restore to iOS 5.1.1 only if you have both 4XX SHSH and the 5.1.1 SHSH.
