    Unhappy iPhone 4 not starting unless it's charging after it fell in water.

    My iPhone 4 fell in water a while ago, it didn't stay in too long and I waited for it to dry but now it won't start unless it's on the charger. It's either stuck in booting (apple logo comes up, goes away, comes up, goes away etc.), in recovery mode (usbcable -> itunes) or in DFU mode (black screen). I can't get to the main screen anymore and I tried lots of things (jailbreaking, restoring to official and custom firmwares) but nothing helps. When I try to restore it I get error 1611, doesn't matter if I restore using custom or official firmware.

    What should I do to fix this?!

    Well I think you can fix this by replacing the battery, but I can't guarantee.

    I forgot to tell but I already replaced the battery, could the new battery also be broken?

    Well it's very unlikely but there's a possibility. It could also be a problem on the logic board... You might just send to a repair shop or buy another one, it could turn out very difficult and time consuming to find out the real problem.
