Progress: I somehow made the phone boot a bit, then it showed a /!\ sign and the phone lying beneath

I owe you both a cookie - I got it started... the screen is a bit waterdamaged but that should go away (I forgot it in my pants, got a trip to the washing machine, therefor not working),

Thanks :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy:

I'm glad it's working but you should make sure it's 100% dry, this is what you do

remove the back cover, batter, sim and SD cards, get a container and fill it with uncooked rice, and yes leave your phone in there for 48hrs that will dry your phone, change the rice after a day

Delicious cookie! :smileywink: Glad that your phone is back to life ....

You may follow Uli's advice on the method to dry your phone, actually that should have been done from the start.

Anyway .... good luck.
