you've asked two questions in less than 5 minutes, but haven't mentioned what device it is or what iOS version it's on.

It's probably some pirated tweak then. Remove those or restore and rejailbreak.

When cydia warns you about a repo In future don't add it. Devices work better when there's no piracy instslled.

As said already. Restore rejailbreak and stay away from piracy.

Try buying tweaks and apps this supports developers and gives them a reason to create more great things for the community.

If users constantly steal their work there's no incentive for them.
