I cannot sync songs from iTunes(12.3) to my phone. I tried to copy manually even that didn't work out. They are not copying at all. Even the books from iTunes copied after 2-3 syncs in each sync some books. Seems like a serious issue here.
iOS is 9.0.2(jailbroken)

Someone on here might have a solution. I don't have one. I don't like jailbreaking my devices. But if you do you kinda know what your getting yourself into as somethings may not work correctly after. I used to jailbreak back in the day of the iPhone 3g but stopped doing that because it was not worth the problems it would give me.

I need to know about jailbreak and it's uses so made a move. i should face the issues too which are about to come if i did and yes doing that right now. Good to know that you used to jailbreak back then. Even i like stock ios but due to it's limitations some have to do it. Which iPhone do you have now?

Use Apple File Conduit 2 from Cydia and then use iFunBox on your PC. Or you could use SSH.
My icons are greyed out in Music in iPhone. They are there i can't play them,delete them nothing they are just there. And i tried copying a music file to itunes folder in iphone using ifile. But it didn't appear on the device(in music)

I've had that issue a few years ago. Google it and you'll find plenty of threads about grayed out music.

Wow so that's why I've got a bunch of grayed out music songs. This really sucks as I listen to tons of music. I may have to ditch the jailbreak, thought I just didn't finish syncing. So there's no fix for this?

Not trying to be that guy. I just couldn't remember where I found the solution. I know a restore solves it, but that's out of the question now.
Yup. By Using different version of iTunes? will there be a change maybe ?

You know what guess I did not fully sync my phone because all songs that were grayed out now show up just fine after a full sync. I'm not having this problem my fault.

That is so weird that itunes won't let you sync back your music to your phone. I'm on a jb 9.02 using itunes 12.3 and have zero issues tranferring music from my windows 10 pc to my phone. I've never had an issue and strange reading that many people have had issues.
