i hope someone maybe able to help me out, I'm trying to help out a friend who was dumb enough to swim with his iPhone 3G for a good 5 minutes until he realized the iphone in his pocket.
I think I cleaned everything up pretty good, no more residue and looks new. I put everything back together, it booted up after about 10 mins of charging.
I got recovery mode, tried iTunes restore and got 1604 error.
if i put the phone in DFU mode, I will get 28 error.
When restoring in DFU mode, the phone will get to the point where Apple logo with a loading bar shows up, but it fails 5 seconds after.
I did a iRecovery -S and got the following.... maybe the phone is really damaged and useless?

Yes it either needs logic board or battery battery is cheap but logic board is nearly half the price of a 3g on eBay
