    The best way to put music into the stock music player on the iPad is to use iTunes, even for a jail broken iPad. That's because the iPad makes its own database for the music - it's not a simple, straight transfer.

    However, I understand that there is a tweak called Pwntunes (on Cydia) that might help, however. It's on sale now, $6.99 (USD) and it allows for a free trial so you can if it will suit your purposes. I've never used it, but maybe it's worth taking a look at it?

    Once you installed PWNtunes, you should register it first, it should be in the settings somewhere.
    Then once you registered it. There will be a folder that is made located in var/mobile/media/my music directory. You can go to this directory using the free app iFile from Cydia. Make "My Music" your bookmark on iFile. From then on, you can use tweaks like Safari Downloader or Enabler or whatever tweaks that can download and ask it to download into your folder. Once it downloads. Go to Pwntunes settings and click sync on. Click home button then go to Music folder, it should start loading the songs up from the Music app. The format title won't be as perfect though. Make sure you edit what you can from iFile under it's source.

    As an alternative to iTunes, I recommend using copytransmanager. It copies music from your pc to your iDevices much like iTunes. It can even create playlists.

    Just do a google search for copytransmanager, download it to your pc (it's free btw), and just run the executable file.
    To copy music from your pc to your iDevice:
    - First of all, iTunes needs to be installed or copytransmanager wont recognize your device.
    - Then open the copytransmanager, plug your iDevice, create a new playlist (optional), drag and drop you mp3 files, and click update at the top.

    Dont forget to click the update button or your iDevice wont save all your music and you have to copy it all over again.

    Hope this helps
