Cydia substrate is installed when a package is installed that requires it (most tweaks)

We need more info.

What sources/repos do you have ?

What tweaks are. Installed if any ?

What happens when you try installing a tweak ? Do you get an error message ? If so what ?

Please answer all above questions

This is my first jailbreaking for this iphone5 Still got none sources/repo yet No tweaks. Now when i try to add a source, it just come out blank. This is because i accidentally force removed cydia substrate. Then i try to rejailbreak but it just wont appear. After that i tried to restore n jailbreak again, same thing. The cydia substrate wont appear anymore

slow down there....

removing substrate (forced or not) will not do this. You could not have restored and tried to re jailbreak or you would be on 8.4.1

Curia and Cydia Substrate are two different things. If you uninstalled Cydia, please follow the advice in our FAQ entry entitled 'How do I install Cydia after uninstalling it?'. If you uninstalled Cydia Substrate, use of Cydia Impactor (see link above) followed by rejailbreaking may help.
