You updated a lot...Reboot your device,and when the Apple Logo shows up hold the Volume+ button.This will put you in Safe Mode and allow you to delete tweaks.

I can already go into cydia and delete tweaks, but which ones do I delete that cause the issue?

once you pirate apps " appsync " is installed, this has long been dead and being hex edited to make it work still, when installed it mods plist files your device relies on. " removing it " don't fix the files it modded. so the issues will remain. in time you will be stuck at the apple logo like everyone else and have to restore. it's you best bet to restore now while 7.0.4 is still signed by apple and stay away from cracked apps and 3rd party repos that host piracy. if you have this appsync installed when apple stop signing 7.0.4 you can blow up and and have to update to 7.1 and lose your jailbreak. GOOD LUCK..

Delete 3G Unrestrictor 5 Cracked. Pirated tweaks can cause loads of problems like the one you see now.

Cracked tweaks will do that.

removing appsync don't fix the files it mods when installed. you must restore in time, you're using a ticking time bomp if you pirate.
