Salt water damage is the worst and the likely hood of saving the device is almost nil. Still, if you value the data on the device, I would suggest you do the following ASAP if you can't get it to a professional immediately.

  • Open your phone and remove the logic board (follow this guide)
  • Inspect the logic board, especially around the connectors and look for corrosion.
  • Inspect both sides of the board. Unfortunately, 80% of the board is covered in shields. That's usually where the damage is occurring.
  • Put your board in a container with >90% isopropyl alcohol and let it sit for a while.
  • Use a soft brush, like a toothbrush and lightly brush away any corrosion you see.
  • Rinse in alcohol and repeat.
  • Let it air dry for a day.
  • Re-assemble and hope for the best.

You should also replace the battery if it has swollen. Resist the temptation to pop it to let the gas out. A compromised Li-ion battery is a fire hazard. If the device appears to power up but behaves erratically, then use a tool like 3uTools to flash the firmware as it may be corrupted.

A professional repair shop that does water damage repair may be able to recover your phone or the data because they have access to pro-level ultrasonic baths and specialized cleaners as well as the skills to troubleshoot your board. Many shops have a no fix/no fee policy so you don't have to spend money to find out if the phone is fixable or not.

Hey,

Could you give more Information? Sounds like it went completely under water? In that case data recovery is probably the only option. Repair sounds uneconomical. Turn off the device and if possible disconnect the battery. Bring it asap to a repair center that does microsoldering.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Kind regards,

Tom
