Ok, I have an interesting, unusual problem. I went to answer my phone when it decided to crash and return to safe mode. Since then when I lock/unlock my phone the audio comes from the speaker at the top, and there's an option when I'm listening to music/YouTube to play from the speaker on top, and the speaker on bottom. I've tried a respring, turning my phone all the way off and back on, and it still won't fix itself. Any ideas?

Speaker on top? Do you mean the headset (handset? ... the part you hold to your ear)? What does the audio output option say specifically in the Music/Youtube apps?

Yes, the headset. The options in the apps are [iPhone Speaker] and [iPhone]. Speaker is the normal speaker for ringtones/music, and [iPhone] is the headset speaker.

Haven't installed anything in about a week. I did forget to mention that I had the standard Apple earbuds in when I went to answer the call.
On a side note, I dunno what happened, but it seems to have fixed itself.

That would make sense for the call to go through the earbuds when you answer call.

Ok, I figured out the problem. It was a Cydia app, but one that I used so infrequently I hadn't noticed. When I turn on the Hands Free tweak for Siri, the audio gets a little wonky. But when it's turned off, it goes back to normal.
