    So I enabled iCloud Photo Library and it deleted all the pictures that I had on photo stream.

    Now the only pictures that are available are the pictures that I've taken after I installed IOS 8

    Anyone else experience this? How I can recover the pictures from photo stream on the iPhone again?

    Did it actually delete photos from the photo stream or just turn off the photo stream? If you turn on IPL then I believe that it will turn off photo stream. However, if you disable IPL then you should be able to re-enable photo stream and my guess would be that your pictures should still be there.

    Keep in mind that photo stream was never meant to be permanent storage for your photos. They are deleted automatically after 30 days anyway. Additionally, it can only hold 1000 pictures, so if you have more than 1000 pictures the older ones will be deleted as you take more.

    I had the problem of only pictures taken after enabling iCloud Photo Library being uploaded, and I deleted and disabled iCloud Photo Library. Then I restored to insure I had all my pictures back. I don't think that will help you with your Photo Stream problem, though.

    The other problem I have is that 1gb of iCloud storage is gone and I can't find a way to get it back now. I deleted every picture in iCloud Photo Library and it still didn't give the space back.

    iCloud Photo Library will be the next Antennagate if they can't figure this out. There's only 2 weeks until it's public. I can't wait to be complaining about this in GM so nobody can spew that "it's a beta" garbage.

    They need to do another CloudKit wipe to fix the storage problem.
