    Default [Water Damage] OV stuck at LG screen on startup

    My phone has served me well for 11 months, but yesterday it suffered some mild water exposure. It was still on, so I wiped it off and everything. The touchscreen worked and all my apps work. I did not get a chance to test the speakers before I realized the buttons at the bottom weren't responding so I rebooted the phone. A terrible mistake, because I've essentially bricked my damn phone.

    All it does now is load to the LG screen and then stays there until the battery dies. I've turned it on an off at least a billion times, I've charged it, and have left it in a bag of rice for about 8 hours. Now I know what you're thinking, it's my fault for turning on a water damaged phone, but I figured the phone was fine because like I said, apps were working, memory intact and touch screen responsive. The only problem was the buttons, and I could live without those.

    The good news is I haven't put it in any alcohol or any other liquid. I've just charged it for a few minutes, restarted it a few times and bagged in it rice for a few hours. If I plug the phone in without booting it it will go to the charging screen, but if I press power again it goes to the LG screen and stays there.

    When I boot into recover it goes to the black screen. Emrgency Mode works. I feel that my phone is still in there somewhere, I just need to find a way to force it to boot past the LG screen. Any tips?

    The best you can do is pull the battery and throw it in rice for a few DAYS then try again

    Is that really my best option? I mean after charging it a lot I would figure it's fried.

    That's weird, I've been trying to "gently" break my phone for awhile now, I've thrown it at the wall, i've dropped it from 11 feet up, and i've put it in a cup of water with the battery still in it. I can't seem to break it.
