Use simply Redsn0w to Install Cydia again in ypour device...connect your device run redsn0w select Install Cydia and untick anyother option and Go You're done.. reboot your iPhone!!

That is, if you have a mac. I believe there is no redsn0w for windows.

If you are on windows, you either have to try sn0wbreeze, or just restore your phone and JB again using greenpoison and hope it works.

There is a redsn0w for Windows. I used it before GP, for tethered jb. Later versions are also ported to Windows. Maybe you're thinking of pwnagetool, which is Mac-only.

Use redsn0w, as per this post:

It will still be untethered, all it does is install cydia correctly. Get your firmware here:

Here's the fix (I have had this problem before): SSH into your iphone and delete, and install the latest version of cydia.

What is ssh if i may ask?

SSH is "Secure SHell," a way to remotely connect to your device and browse it's file system and execute commands. You install OpenSSH in cydia to enable it on your device, and use a client such as WinSCP (Windows) or Terminal (Mac) to connect.
