How to fix some mysterious problems.

I jailbroke my IPad Mini Wifi last week and it worked just fine. For more information, it is in IOS 7 and the warranty is over (had it for a year). Anyways, one day I put a wrong URL for sources (I forgot the URL name) and all of a sudden something pop up and says something but I couldn't read it because my Cydia crashed. When I got back in, it said malformed line or something like that on line 2. All my sources were gone and I couldn't get anymore packages. After that, I shut my IPad down and did not use it for 3 days. When I got back in, all my apps and games were gone but my videos and photos were still there. Even my Cydia was still there. Can you tell me how to get them back and do I really have to backup or any easier way? Also need help on removing the malformed line 2. If you need more info, tell me in the comments. Also, I do not have IFile or anything like that. Also my memory for those apps are still taking over. I had 16 gb, now 613 MB. Help too?

Please help

Sounds like you added a piracy source. We don't deal with that here. Cydia usually refuses to add a source url that has an error in it. There is this YouTube video that addresses this problem but you are totally on your own with it:
