Double press the home button till multitasking comes up and hold down the cydia icon till it jiggles and then hit the minus and close it and try again. If that still doesnt work, Reboot and try er again :)

Good Luck! :)

I'm having the same problem, cydia says initializing filesystem when I click on it, but it crashes almost immediately and resprings the springboard.
