Have you installed a theme from Cydia? A lot of times, developers put wallpapers into the themes and they override your normal wallpaper choices in the Settings app.

If you have a theme, try going to Winterboard > Select Theme and find the line titled something like User Lock Background. Ensure that is checked and is placed above any theme you may have activated. Then, after you respring the iPad, your wallpaper should show through.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.


P.S. And, since you talk about issues with a jail broken iPad, I've taken the liberty of moving your post over to the Hacking section. Thanks for your understanding.
