    Have you gone to Settings>General>Restrictions? If you do, and installing and deleting apps are turned off, your AppStore icon will not show on the home screen.

    Do you have any folders containing multiple apps, on your home screen? If so, maybe it's hiding in one of them.

    Not sure whether this is safe on a jailbroken iPad, but Settings/Reset/Reset Home Screen Layout usually brings apps out of hiding. Better check first with someone who knows about hacking. Wouldn't want to see Cydia disappear.

    Are you still jail broken? Could you have used a Cydia tweak to hide those icons? Something like SBSettings, Poof or Springtomize 2 will allow you to hide icons.
