    Dropped in toilet. I powered it off and placed in rice for two days. Soaked with 99% isopropanol for a couple hours, and waited for it to completely dry. Upon charging I got no logo, no recognition on the computer. It's been a couple weeks, so there is absolutely no moisture in there now.

    I've opened it up and can't see anything wrong, I was optimistically hoping to see a burn mark on some part so I could replace it. What would be the parts that would likely be damaged so I can look into fixing it?

    I need to recover some data on it. It's jailbroken so even if it isn't fully functional I can ssh or usb into it and get what I need if I can get it to be recognized or connect to the internet.

    To get any water residue out. Water shorts circuits and corodes, isopropanol doesn't, so it can flush out the water and can be used to clean circuits.

    I tried that once with my blackberry and I swear the alcohol fried it - I know it's supposed to flush it all out but it did not work for me.
    Question is out of my league but battery maybe?
