Water Damaged, Logic Board Repair - EMI Shield Removal?I have an iPhone 5 that was dropped in the toilet. I disassembled it, scrubbed it with a toothbrush + isopropyl alcohol...
Answer to "battery replacement doesn't work"I had the same problem. the iPhone 5 I am trying to fix was dropped in water. I cleaned the connectors and it would come on only when plugged in but it would just keep flashing apple icon and then turning off and rebooting. I tested a battery in it from a known working iphone 5 and it did the same thing. I am wondering if we would need to replace the battery connector, which would be a pain. unless anyone has a better solution :D
