Cydelete allows you to delete Cydia? Sounds like it needs a prohibition on that if so. I've got nothing on iOS 7-8 to test that.

Type cydia:// in Safari. What do you see?

Type cydia:// to safari's address bar and press enter. Cydia should then be opened. Then you look for Cydia installer and press Modify -> Reinstall.
