How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi, Yesterday I've updated about 20 extensions at once via Cydia. Today I noticed some apps couldn't open, they just crashed and shut down instant. And on Instagram I noticed that when I opened a list of followers longer than a few hundred people, it also crashed and shut down, and I needed to reopen the app. When I opened a list of followers from someone else who had only about 100, than there was no problem. So i thought maybe it has something to do with the memory?

Anyways, about an hour ago I opened the program iFile. At first it worked fine, and suddenly it that program crashed also, so I reopened it, but than my whole phone crashed and I got into Safe Mode. Very weird, cause a lot of jailbreak apps like Cydia, and none-jailbreak apps including: Safari, agenda, phone book, imessage, contacts, and other apple apps are gone in Safe mode?! So I can not uninstall any cydia app, or extension update, (not that I know which programs I've been updating at once yesterday).

So here I am, stuck in safe mode, it returns to SM every time when I hit restart, and I can not call, schedule appointments or whatever. Has anyone got a clue what I can do to fix without having to do a hard reset? Oh btw I tried resetting it with holding the home button and lock button at the same time, restarts in SM as well..

Many thanks!!

Try removing some of your tweaks on cydia

I cannot do that because Cydia is gone.

Here's what I can't even recover back to iOS7.0.4 because the Settings app is also gone, and I need to shut off the Search my iPhone function. I even tried restoring it to facroty with the newest iOS 9.1, which I cannot also, it gives an Error.
