    Can someone please help me to reinstall or clean up cydia?
    I found a installed tweak i dont recognize, and everytime i try to open it, cydia crashes. Even in safemode.
    And every after i used cydia, i get multiple bookmarks on homescreen.

    Make a fresh start using Cydia Impactor.

    And also stay away from shady repos next time ;)

    Follow the instruction in that link. You can restore to 8.4.1 and downgrade back to 8.4 using taig then jailbreak. Very simple. Watch the video in the previous link.

    If you have AppSync installed remove it through Cydia and see if Cydia Impactor appears after the respring.

    1) Does Cydia Impactor show up as installed in Cydia? If not, try to install again.

    If it shows up in Cydia as installed,
    2a) If you have any Terminal app installed, open it and type this command: uicache
    Press enter then wait for the prompt to return. Exit and the icon should appear.

    2b) If you don't have a Terminal app installed go to Cydia and remove Cydia Impactor. Afterwards boot your device into non-substrate mode*. While being in non-substrate mode go to Cydia and re-install Cydia Impactor. Once done reboot your device to get back into normal mode. Cydia Impactor should now be on your homescreen.

    *: to enter non-substrate mode hold power button & home button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. When you see the Apple logo immediately release both buttons and hold the volume up button until your device gets to the lockscreen.
