I accidentally deleted some important video files on my iPhone 4S before I synced, so I can't back it up and restore my video's. Is there any software available that can potentially help recover my lost video's? I managed to convert my iPhone into an external harddrive, and I scanned it using some free software, and it could not find any of the lost files I am looking for. I am not really knowledgable about modding or jailbreaking, so if anybody could help me figure out a solution involving one of these methods, it would truly help. I am operating on Windows by the way.
The files were deleted earlier today, by the way. They are just some video files that were on my camera roll. I truly hope there is a way to restore them.. Seeing as how none of the software I downloaded works, what other alternatives are there that I can try? I heard there is a method that involves jailbreaking your iPhone and creating a raw image drive onto your computer, but I am not sure if that is possible to do on Windows... any idea?

there "MAY" be available softwares that can do it for you, but it is expensive.
you can also try the thread you posted, it seems some people had success with that on a 4s with some minor modifications
you can also try: photorec and iphone
I think the first link is better

It does look like there are some success there in that thread. Never tried it though, seems a but complicated. I would give it a go, if you've got nothing to lose. If you mess up you can always restore.

Is there anyway you can walk me through that tutorial? I've never modded before or used anything like this before so that's why it appears very daunting...

Unfortunately, as I've mentioned I've never done anything of this sort either. I'm afraid I'd be just as lost as you. The best I can suggest is to read through it all, if there is anything you aren't quite understanding I may be able to help you define. I wouldn't know where tI start either though, to be honest.
Here's how to SSH into your iPhone with WinSCP. I think you can use iFunBox too but usually with file modding I use WinSCP or Cyberduck.

You'll also want to download mobileterminal onto your device. Go to Cydia and search mobileterminal and download it.
Proceed to follow the instruction given by the thread.

Do not worry about that, it is simple and easy to recover the deleted iPhone videos.
And then here is a guide for you to learn how to do that in detail.

If you synced with iTunes after you took the video and before deleting it, there is software available to extract the video from your computer.
Or you can use a third-party tool to directly scan and recover iPhone 4s video if deleted.
