You can use redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 to install Cydia, when you're presented with check boxes make sure you only select the "Install Cydia" box and nothing else.

First, try rebooting your iPhone by holding down the sleep button until you get the red "Slide to power off" screen. Power off, wait ten seconds, then press the sleep button to start up again.

If your Cydia icon isn't back after you finish starting up, follow the steps here:
