You can install cydia without loader by using the latest redsn0w for your OS (0.9.6rc8 for windows and 0.9.7b6 for Mac). When using redsn0w uncheck all of the boxes except for install cydia.

Once redsn0w is finished you should have cydia available.

Does it appear under spotlight?

If not, you'll need to either install Cydia using redsn0w, or else restore and re-jailbreak with greenpois0n.
