Reboot the device and try again.

You could try to re-run the jailbreak, but I won't pretent to know the consequences of that. The easy way out would be to restore and rejailbreak, which is almost guaranteed to work. Or, you coulc try to install Cydia manually. I'd reccommend restoring and just starting fresh, though.

I had the same issue I think its a bug in the Evasi0n 1.3 only thing you can do is a full restore, then re jailbreak. if you re run the JB it will say something like its already partially tethered and to go to cydia which of course you cant
