It's been that way since you restored it 2 days ago?
Did you restore an iTunes backup?

Did you try typing before you restored the icloud backup? If not, redsn0w re-restore again and see if the problem exists before you restore your backup.

Something is wonky in your iCloud backup then, apparently. Looks like you'll have to setup as a new device and start over.

I guess you are using the correct redsn0w version for your firmware (an untethered one). Sometimes tethered jailbreaks let you open Safari, but you won't be able to do anything with it. Have you tried starting your device tethered?
