How to fix some mysterious problems.

(5c iOS 8.4) I jailbroke my phone with Taig and when I turned it back on and opened cydia, it said preparing filesystem. I think I left the app or my phone synced with iTunes and then I restarted when I opened my phone again, all my apps had no icons (completely blank screen), and I could only open apps with siri and the search feature, anything I can do to fix it?

You'll have to restore and re-jailbreak, there is no other fix. Something went wrong during cydia's stashing (moving system files around) process. It's far less likely to happen if you start out with a freshly restored device.
