How to fix some mysterious problems.

I attempted to jailbreak an iPad 1 running iOS 5.1.1 with redsn0w 0.9.12b2. Everything went well until I opened Cydia. After preparing the filesystem, the iPad rebooted and most (not all) of my stock apps were gone along with Cydia. For some reason Youtube, Videos, and Newsstand still exist.

Restoring from a backup didn't work. I found several similar topics after Googling for a bit but none of the answers worked. How do I get the apps back?
