    Default [Unexpected Event] Fixing wet damaged iPhone ?

    I have an iPhone that has a pink strip inside the headphones which suggests to me it has dampness related damage.

    The phone is a friends and had a black flashing screen - I tried restoring and it kept failing and finally it does not even turn on anymore.

    Its a write off and I would be tempted to see if I can fix it - but I don't know anything about what would be damaged from the wetness.

    Any advice and experience would be appreciate - it can be a little project for me!
    iPhone US 8GB
    FW 1.0.2--> iUnlock--> iPhoneSIMfree--> 1.1.1 --> 1.1.2--> Soft upgrade 1.1.3 --> 1.1.4 using signal.app
    iPhone UK 16GB
    FW 1.1.3 OOB --> 1.1.4 --> iPlus 1.2 unlocked!

    <----If I helped you out, rep points are always nice (thanks for that idea!)

    its not a little project man its a damn thing opening that phone w/o scratching
    so after that, you have to unsoldered its battery then proceed to clean and dry
    the wet part when things goes cleaned & dried then measure resistance between
    B+ and GND for any leakage during reverse measurement if all ok then solder
    again the Battery 3 wires i think the center one is BSI good luck...

    is it now a little project for you hehehe i dont think so..

    I think opening the iPhone is going to be your only solution. You will have to dry it as quickly as possible to prevent oxidation of the circuit boards, I would tear it apart as much as possible so no humidity remains between the parts, check for visual signs of water damage. Ask your friend what happened exactly to the phone to get a better diagnose (Did it get damp only? Did the phone get submerged?)
    And just like iphot_2k said disconnect the battery first and leave it disconnected until you are sure there's nothing shorting out the phone.
