ok i recently bricked my sisters iPhone 3gs and had no option but to restore and update ... Now my sister has not backed up in ages!
so all videos and pictures of her newborn daughters are lost! :'(
However I've seen that you can recover lost files ( in the Link Below) the problem is its outdated and i dont think its working for ios 5.0.1
here: HOW TO: iPhone Data Recovery
Or maybe its just me and it still works fine, but i get an error when on the 2nd step (entering the password)
anyways, if anyone can help i'd really appreciate it
PS: im using a Mac How can i recover the un-backed up files???

Umm, sorry, but from what I know and read in many places, it's lost. I've faced a similar problem too, it sucks. -_-

There are two ways to recover data from iPhone:
1."Directly scan and recover data from your iPhone"
a) Select the device to scan
b) Enter the DFU mode and then scan your iPhone 4
c) Preview and recover deleted iPhone photos/videos
2. "scan and extract your iTunes backup file"
a) Choose iTunes backup and scan it
b) Recover deleted iPhone data

iTunes will back up your data automatically when you try to restore and update your 3gs. You can retrieve data lost from iTunes backup files:
1.Configure iTunes so that it does not automatically sync with your iPhone when your phone is connected to your computer
2.Connect your iPhone to the computer.
4.Right-click on your device and press ‘Restore from backup…’
If this didn't work for you, you may try professional iphone data recovery software, this one can directly recover your data from your iphone internal database:

If you have no backup of your phone then there is no way for you to recover the deleted photos, sorry it's gone.

iTunes copies the files to the backup and uses unique file names
Windows XP Directory: C: \Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup\
Windows Vista/7 Directory: CUsers\Username\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
For every device you have, there will be a folder for each that keeps your backup. Just rename the file extensions to .jpg and they'll be the original picture images that you can view on your device. If you have it shown in thumbnails, they should change from the broken/corrupted files to an actual image you can open up. All above job can be finish with the help of iPhone Data Recovery.
