Answer to "iPhone X restarting with apple logo after water got inside"So here’s what I figured out: 1 - the volume buttons are not shorted, just the sleep button is. Since the sleep button is shorted, iOS didn’t know how to respond to the volume button being pressed (probably thought I was trying to hard reset, ergo did not change volume like it normally would) 2 - The iPhone will boot and function normally when the quad flash/sleep button connector is unplugged. They are both on the same circuit. What I think happened was the water that was inside the rear camera also got into the flash module. Since the flash and sleep button are on the same circuit, and the phone functions normally without the circuit attached, I think this module might be shot. So I will just replace it for $20 and see if it works. Bootstrap method ftw!
Answer to "iPhone X restarting with apple logo after water got inside"Had this happen to my X by simply cleaning it with a wet towel for less than a minute or so. Did not even get submerged or anything. Everything is working fine, but my volume buttons and sleep/wake are being shorted somehow. No water marks in screen or cameras (although it initially had moisture in all 3 cameras, it’s all gone now). I opened up the phone, but couldn’t see any signs of moisture in the main part of the case, so I focused on the button switches themselves I used a syringe to drop little droplets of isopropyl into the volume buttons and sleep/wake button while pressing them in and out. It is currently under a blow dryer with medium heat. Will update when I take it off…
