Before it when in the wash it was already stuck in a boot loop. The battery was dead when it when into the wash and I let it dry out in a bag of rice in front of a little heater. About a week later i tried to restore it but I got an error in iTunes when it was at waiting for ipod (I think it has been over a year now. It may have been 1600 something) it would also die as soon as you unplugged it. Any way I gave up for awhile and tried again a couple months later and my computer won't recognize it. I can get to recovery mode if I'm plugged in to the wall though. From what I read I think it is the battery. I have cleaned the lightning connecter and no luck. Thanks
