If there is no cydia then you should restore and rejailbreak.

under apps you should see com.saurik.cydia, and under root directory/applications.. you can look under the other directories for anything that say's cydia... those are the 2 that I deleted then installer let me install cydia again. i made sure ipod didn't go in standby then it's been working great since....
