    launch redsn0w agan and use the "just boot teathered option" to get cydia back up again.
    You'll have to do this everytime you reboot your iPod Touch, as it is a teathered jailbreak.

    Run Redsn0w. Select "Extras", followed by "Select IPSW", and point it to the iOS 5.0 firmware file. then boot tethered following instruction

    If you have installed OpenSHSH, you can SHSH our device and delete the 2 themes. (/var/stash/Themes.xxxx)

    rejailbreak? but with a different tool (if possible)

    If you rejailbreak it re-installs cydia which should fix the issue.
