iPhone 5 boot loop

I have an Iphone 5 that had minor water damage. But was all cleaned out and was working great.

Then a few week later it was bent (as seen in picture) when plugging it in the apple logo appears for about 4 seconds then the phone shuts of are repeats the process. Then I tried to put the phone into recovery mode to update or restore to phone and i got the error code 21. So I opened it up to find a broken component on the board (as seen in the picture). And i need to know if it is replaceable and what it is.

In the picture, are you talking about that piece near the bottom middle of the board w/ a white circle? If so, that's an inductor. These are specs for it 2.2UH-20%-1.45A-125MOHM if you can find one.

How did you clean it out? And did you remove the shields too to check for any damage?

Try a new battery that has a charge first.

I have this same problem . The Apple logo appears for 10 seconds. I replaced the battery and the same thing happens. I do not think I had any water damage but it is possible. Any thoughts, anyone?
