How to fix some mysterious problems.

Ok this is what happened. I tried to download polus from cydia, the my device resprang then it kept looping with the apple logo so i held down power and home button till it did it again and held down + power button and my device (iphone 5c jailbroken with pangu) turned on and all of my stuff from cydia was gone. Then i searched google for a solution and it said remove substrate then remove cydia installation or something like that. But when i removed substrate my device rebooted on its own and cydia is gone but my ifile app is stile there and when i tried to rejailbreak my phone it says it's already jailbroken. Please help me please someone!! How can i fix this and either get cydia back or remove my jailbreak and rejailbreak it. HELP MEEE!!!

Restore in iTunes ("Restore [device]" button) and re-jailbreak.

Click "backup" in your device summary in iTunes, then restore and then click "restore from backup" which will get your stuff back.

Are you positive about that @tony99?

It will get everything back except music and movies.

After you restore, it will say "would you like to set up as new or restore to a previous backup?" click "restore from the backup"
