Did you try resyncing your library after the jb? A quick Google search finds that it's a very easy fix: Music wont play after absinthe jailbreak 5.1.1 - JailbreakQA
Basically, just delete the music from your device and load it back on after the jailbreak. What's happening is that a database is getting corrupted during the jb process, so the Music app can't find the files anymore until you rebuild the library.

I tried the jailbreak before and had the same result. Jailbreaking is not worth the hassle and issues that come up. Apple makes their products a certain way for a reason. Jailbreaking does just what it says, it breaks your phone.

Is it for everyone? No. But if you have a curiosity about computers, art and design, or gadgetry, it opens up a whole new world. And for those that don't find it to their liking, Apple makes it easy to go back to stock; all you need to do is click Restore.

It does not break your phone at all,far from it if anything it lifts the shackles that apple put onto it. Once your used to jb and know what your doing its so good you wouldn't want a iPhone to be without it. And on that,once i bought an iPad i took it out of the box and jb it straight away,why mess around?
As a new jail breaker it can be nerve-racking seeing the black screen and white writing flashing up but its just how it does things,the results are amazing. So so many good tweaks that only improve what is already a top iPhone/iPad.
I can only say go for it,if your unsure get a person who's done it before to do it for you and show you around, ill bet within a month you wouldn't want to be without your jb

I am an android man with my personal phone (LTEVO) but my job has given me a NEW IPAD so i wanted to root/jailbreak my device....... so the noob question is after i jailbreak if something happens at work is it that simple to restore back to default factory settings just by clicking RESTORE...... and lastly the Cydia store/app does it really have all the tweaks and themes in there for the iPad like changing fonts and colors...... THANKS for the help

Yes, restoring is pretty simple. Most of the tweaks and themes are readily available, BUT some of the more advanced (and of questionable legality stuff) has to be manually added on. You can find many MANY toturials and stuff in and around the net.

Simply put, if there was no JailBreak, I wouldn't buy a iPhone. I have been jailbreaking for about a year now and I understand the do's and donts of it. It is very beneficial if done right, but you cannot just go round installing anything you want.

Just to clarify my "breaking the phone" comment, I think that when you are having to constantly restart or respring your phone, that can be considered broke. Not to mention the speed and graphics issues that occur after you jailbreak. So, you may consider it worth it to have a slower phone for more functionality. I; however, consider it broken.

Now, I don't have any issues.
I personally would have given the phone back if I could not have unique email sigs, it was necessary.

Yes, sometimes you have to respring or restart your phone, but that only happens when you change something that needs to load on a reboot or respring - just like you have to reboot your computer sometimes after applying patches or installing software. It surely doesn't mean that it's "broke". It doesn't hurt to reboot your phone every couple of days, even if you're NOT jailbroken, since Apple's code isn't so perfect that it doesn't benefit from a reboot once in a while.
I've been at this for years now, and I've never seen any speed or graphics issues unless I was installing something that didn't belong there to begin with. On the contrary, my phone (with the tweaks I've done) runs much faster than a stock OS.
As some have said earlier in the thread, jailbreaking isn't for everyone. If you don't know how to swim, you shouldn't jump into the deep end. If you decide to, you should wear your water wings or expect to swallow a bit of water before you get the hang of it.
Luckly, it's easy as a button click to start over from scatch anytime you feel like it...
