Use i-FunBox to delete the following Cydia App folders:

/var/stash/Applications/Cydia.app /var/stash/Applications.9BdOWM/Cydia.app

Then run loader again.

it looks like you ran a search for "Cydia" on your file system, anyways, the FOLDER you want to remove is /Applications/Cydia.app

if you have iFile and Appinfo, run AppInfo and see information about Cydia application, and then you can open it in iFile, it will open the folder that contains Cydia files, this should confirm the folder i pointed out for you.

Try this to remove and reinstall Cydia, you need to have OpenSSH on your device, SSH to your device and run the following two command lines:

get-app remove cydia

get-app install cydia

Sorry i forgot you still dont have Cydia and so can't get OpenSSH. Anyways, when you browse with iFunBox, what Cydia folders do you get?
