I was able to do this. I let the phone dry out after a full trip through the washing machine. At first, the phone didn't work at all, then gradually started working a little. The batter was completely dead. Most functionality came back once I replaced it (put in a Maxx battery while I was at it; note to persons who do this: get a new loud speaker in addition to the kit as the old one wont come out of the old housing without damaging it and I had to do this - I recommend this for water damage repair as well as you get the benefit of a bigger battery and new water damage detection stickers). The sensor bar (home buttons etc) didn't seem to work right; the menu button kept pressing itself (guessing there was a little water left in there), but this eventually righted itself (it took like 2 months). The vibrator didn't work very well (I haven't replaced this yet as the replacements are hard to find), but it worked a little (you could hear it trying to vibrate). Both cameras, and the flash were non-functional. I have since replaced them and they now work again. You may also want to get a new "1080p" sticker bard as you will likely break it in dis-assembly and you may want to get a couple water damage stickers if you wanna make it look pristine. So, summary: you will need this guide, a front and back camera, a razr maxx upgrade kit, a loud speaker,a flash module, a "1080p" sticker, at least 1 water detection sticker, a vibrator motor, an "iphone repair kit" or a lot of small hex tools and 2 spudgers and a lot of patience and time. Repair beginning to end took about 2 hours just from begin careful and patient and having tiny parts. If you have or can get an esd bracelet, I recommend that too. Totally fixable though, if you are careful.

I recommend using crystal cat litter as a desiccant to dry everything out while you have it disassembled. Just wrap the parts in some thin cloth & bury it in (unused) crystal cat litter. It is basically the same thing that comes in those little "Do not eat" bags packed with all electronics.

Hey mark, I would like to answer in your post. There are several ways through which you can repair water damage. the best one is hiring a professional water damage repair service.

It is quite easy to fix water damage; it comes down to one or two things. Call a plumber or do-it-yourself. There are several companies which provide water and fire damage repair services. I would like to share some very good options with you.
