    Hey guys. So here's the story. Last week my iPhone 2G was in my backpack and water spilled in there and the phone would was off. I did the rice technique to dry it and it seems to work because the phone is working now except it's stuck in a recovery mode loop. Every few minutes it will shut off and go into the recovery mode screen and then over and over until the battery dies out. I have tried to restore it directly on iTunes except I get an "error 14," which will not allow me to restore. I have tried TinyUmbrella and Recboot and can't seem to get it to work. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Yes, you cant fix water/hardware damage with software.
    Its probably shorted out.
