iPhone 4 (jailbroken) won't do anything after getting wet

It was in an Otterbox, one of the ones that has clasps and fully encases the phone, I put it in rice for an hour and it worked, but had a little bit of water behind the screen. Then, when I opened iFile, it just froze. I locked the phone, and now I can't do anything. I put it back in rice overnight, but still won't work. The screen does not appear to be on, but it does make a noise when I plug it in, and iTunes recognizes it, but I can't press trust this computer, because the screen isn't on. Nothing is working. Oh sweet mother of god, help.

Power button is broken, has been for a while. I tried the kitchen counter trick, didn't work.

To properly dry out the phone you will need to tear it apart . Rice is for cooking and lunch it only works on tv not in real life. Heres a teardown guild to help

iPhone 4 Teardown

Clean ever connection with a soft toothbrush. As well clean the logic board use a 99% isopropal alcohol for all cleaning. now is the time to start drying out the phone. Set the screen in a desiccant or silica gel leave it in for several day moving it from time to time to get the max effect from the desiccant . use a blow dryer on a low heat setting to dry the rest of the phone. replace the battery with a new one consider the old ones done. Clean again with isopropal alcohol let dry and when you think everything is clean and dry reassemble the phone (make sure to clean the contacts on the screen after removing from the desiccant). Once you've reassembled the phone its time to power it on. Hold your breath and hope for the best.
