    I'll have to get sbsettings and try it. Does sbsettings have a option to enter safe mode?

    Yes after it's installed open it up. Bottom right hit the power button and click safe mode.

    I have same issue ... iPhone 5 JB
    if u power down phone normally then power on phone with start button ... as soon as u see apple icon, press and hold up volume button.
    That will load your phone without running any tweak extensions ... like safe mode
    I did this and tried to share webpage and issue was still present ... so i know it wasnt any tweaks.
    I also could not get my weather to work on iphone, even after loading all the updates in cydia.
    My friend also had the same two issues .... he re-jailbroke his device with the latest version of evasi0n and all is working for him

    So it looks like i will be going the same route...
    That issue must be caused by a jailbreak ... i used the first JB tool released ...

    And has the issue remained fixed? I ask because I have the same issue -- and I want to know if it's worth starting over, and restoring my iPhone and rejailbreaking for!

    Thanks for any information.

    I tried everything (removing all suspected tweaks) and nothing worked. Restoring (now that 6.1.3 is out and the signing window on 6.1.2 has closed) isn't an option and even if it were, I'd be concerned the issue would come back, since we don't know the cause.

    In any case, I just managed to fix it.

    Go to Cydia and install Flex (if you don't already have it, it's worth it. Powerful, extensive utility for tweaking ALL sorts of things.)

    Go into Flex, and under Springboard, install "Fullscreen Apps (iPhone 5.)" Then be sure to tap the checkmark to enable it... and reboot.

    Now test by going to Photos, sharing a picture via email... you'll see the keyboard is no longer positioned in the middle of the screen! Huzzah!

    You can fix this by installing Screen Extender and then checking MailCompositionService and SocialUIService
