Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.2 or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

I had an Iphone 4 Ios 5.1.1 and I was doing the jealbreak and it was in the back up part which finished and deleted all my images/videos, and said "Service wouldn't start (4234)" what should I do?

Were you using Absinthe? Did you backup before jailbreaking? if not your images/videos may be unrecoverable. Disabling any antivirus/firewall may help.

Thanks, I jail breaked it but my data was unrecoverable. (And I wasn't using Absinthe, I really don't what is Absinthe?)

Now i faced the same problem, and just realized that all my images and songs are gone...

These data are very important to us, can you give us advice on how can I get my data back?

I haven't sync with itune for quite a while so there are no option for that.

I've found RSBxxx and ROCxxx in tmp folder under windows, I used redsn0w on ios5.1.1

your kind help will be very appreciated

Your photos are probably still there. See my comment on this question. As for your music, there may be something similar but I don't know what off the top of my head. I do know this, though:
These data are very important to us is incorrect. Important data is backed up data.

Never mind, thanks for your help anyway, we have to admit that though the data are important to us but we relied too much on the sync to do the job.

But I have just resolved the issue by completing jb using absinthe, and everything came back like magic!
