Title:

Water Damage | No Display | Stuck in Recovery Mode

Text:

Hi Guys,  I have a friend who drowned her iphone 6S! Not certain how long it was under but here are the conditions:

- No display

- The device is still recognized by iTunes

- Stuck in DFU mode.

I've tried the usual power and home button combinations but iTunes still prompting me to restore. I've also tried 'tiny umbrella' to attempt kicking it out of DFU but no luck there.

Is there any way to get it out of DFU so I can perhaps save the photos?

Would appreciate your input.
