israel, the very first thing you want to do is to not try to restart the phone. This may further damage your phone. You also do not want to try to charge it any further. The next thing to do is to clean it. Disassemble your phone using these guides. Once it is disassembled, you do need to clean it properly. You will need high grade isopropyl alcohol and a soft brush. Use this guide to see how to clean it. Even so it was written for a 3G all the points are still pertinent to your phone. While you are cleaning it, check for any broken, missing or burned looking components. When it is properly cleaned, replace the battery. All these steps are to avoid delayed failure caused by corrosion. Once all this is done, reassemble your phone and reevaluate. It is possible that your symptoms are related to corrosion. Hope this helps, good luck.

Hate to burst your bubble but rice is not the way to go nice to eat tho.

The phone needa opened up and washed with ISO alcohol then left to dry and reassembled I would purchase a new battery and this can cause a infinite apple logo..

In future don't use rice if you don't want you device destroyed
