data recovery after water damage

i have a iPhone 6 which was water damaged. Im hoping for data recovery, i took all emi shields and cleaned corrosion away. BY using schematic i found the speaker ic was causing problem and removed that, now i have a problem with capacitors around the baseband chip and also 'c1417' which i believe is to do with charging, if i was to remove this to try shorting would it affect the charger port so the phone wouldn't turn on? i have photos for you to see board and damaged components

Please do not shorten out any components. this can make your situation worse. If you know the component is faulty, replace it with a proper one.

Hope this is not one of your customers board, you never try to do something on costumers board.

First practice on dead boards and when you know what you are doing you charge for it.

This forum thread exclusively for iphone data recovery, please check that out before doing something wrong with this board

@soros it would be great if you post a link in front of where you mention the forum thread. The name of the person that started it, may not get the OP going in the right direction. Thanks.

Jojo, if you are going to be doing board level repairs as a business, I think you should be investing some time and effort to understand at least the basics of electronics. Once you understand what a resistor, capacitor or inductor (coil, choke, ferrite bead) does and how they behave, you will know how to test them and whether or not it can be shorted or removed. As I always say, electronics engineers put those specific components there for a reason so ideally you should always be replacing them with similarly spec'd components.

This is a good tutorial on how engineers deliver clean power to IC's. This is very relevant as the majority of the passives on an iDevice logic board are there for this specific reason. There are several articles in the series and they touch on capacitors and ferrite beads (filters). Another good source of materials is ElectronicTutorials. There are also some good youtube channels such as Afrotechmods, AddOhms and of course the EEVBlog.
