Thread: Waterdamaged iphone5. Completely dead. What should I replace?

    Default Waterdamaged iphone5. Completely dead. What should I replace?
    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.

    Soaked in isopropyl alcohol for a couple hours?..Why?

    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?
