    Re: icloud photo restore i had the exact same problem so tried this tip and it worked like a charm got every photo back.
    1) Restore from icloud back up from scratch
    2) dont open anything or touch anything let the back up keep restoring
    3) KEEP THE PHONE AWAKE turn off autolock if you need to but do not let it sleep.
    4) DO NOT open the photo app til the restore is done.

    That worked for me. Kept the phone awake and ignored it and i got all photos back as normal on iphone 4, updating to ios 5.1.1,
