How to fix some mysterious problems.

I was installing what cydia called important updates. There were alot of tweaks and apps it was updating. It was like 18 MB. Then I respang. The spining cirlce stayed spining for a long time. Then i ended up in modile substrate disabled mode. Cydia isn't working now. And most other apps crash. But i still have wifi and chrome works. What should i do? Is there anyway to get out of this besides restoring? I have a iPod touch 5G running iOS 6.1

go into cydia and remove tweaks one at a time. sometimes its just one tweak that makes the whole thing crash.
