I have iPhone4 and I shut it down by using power off button. Now I can't open the device unless I connect it to iTunes. I don't have backup and I don't want to lose my data and restore to factory setting when I connect to iTunes.

How should I proceed to bring it back up with all my actual data?

You can use TinyUmbrella to force your iPhone out of recovery mode:

Open TinyUmbrella, connect your device and click Exit Recovery.
