    You can try the solution I posted in this thread but you may not be having the same issue so it may not work

    (I posted the wrong link, fixed now)

    edit: now that I see it happened after trying to do 3 updates at once, I think it actually is the same problem I had.

    What happens if you open mobile terminal or ssh and type the command "dpkg -l" (without the quotes)?

    I had cydia crash on installation of a ringtone and I had to restore. Sane deal as you, cydia would crash on startup. Restore is the option I know.

    I'm in the same boat as the OP, and decided to restore back to normal settings. Yeah, Cydia wouldn't stay open that long and *POOF* it wouldn't give any type of warning just go back to my homescreen without an explanation prompt. After about 20 times, I decided to wait for something a bit more stable....:mad::mad::mad:

    I just got lucky and figured it out when I had the same problem. I was wondering if you had seen my link yesterday since we posted at nearly the same time. Glad it helped.

    Fixed Fixed!!!

    Looked everywhere for the answer to the cydia crash bug, and sorted it myself

    it appears to be half installed packaged causing the problem

    so ssh into the phone

    dpkg -C should tell you what's not installed fully, and in my case it was


    Code:
    The following packages have been unpacked but not yet configured.
    They must be configured using dpkg --configure or the configure
    menu option in dselect for them to work:
     mobilesubstrate      powerful code insertion platform
     preferenceloader     load preferences in style
     libhide              Library to hide icons. If you are a developer wanting to
     pincrush             optimize PNGs just like Apple does
    so a simple dpkg --configure [package name] fixes it, in my case.

    Code:
    dpkg --configure mobilesubstrate  
        
    dpkg --configure preferenceloader     
    
    dpkg --configure libhide              
    
    and
    
    dpkg --configure pincrush    
    simples
