If you've synced your iPhone with iTunes before the jailbreak, it's not a problem. You can use an iphone backup extractor to get back all your contents, including contacts, photos, videos, SMS, notes, call history, etc. But one thing you should keep in mind is that not to sync your iPhone with iTunes after you lost all the contents, or your previous data will be overwritten and you won't ever get it back. With this in mind, let's check detailed steps below together.
