My advice... get a new iPhone that hasn't taken a bath.

If you can't fix it, but it will run when attached to a power source just get a Mophie Juice Pack Air and use it that way.

I have sevrel iphones even a 3gs 32gb apple unlocked model but i buy phones as a hobby to revive them its a challenge for me better than sitting around doing nothing

But this one has me beat the problem with it is the LTC4088-2 charging/sync chip was what got the water damaged but i would think if this chip was faulty it wouldnt sync or try to charge at all

So im thinking maybe a diode somewhere close to it im just hoping someone has done the same job/fix and knows what to change

Cheers
