    I've recently jailbroken my 3GS iPhone with pwnage tool but then in Settings tab on iPhone, I've selected to delete all the data & settings, after that when I start my phone, just pineapple logo comes in the startup but don't move ahead.

    Can't even be detected by macbook air & also can't even go to recovery mode or DFU.

    PLEASE HELP.

    Are you sure you are doing DFU or recovery mode correctly? Follow the instructions in the links in my sig. It is very highly unlikely that your phone is "bricked". That word is very over used.

    so you went to settings, general, reset, erase all content and Settings? That clears the phone, os and all, so you'll have to do a restore through iTunes I think.

    So your title is broken? Are the water sensors pink?

    nope. it was just a spray. the headphone one is white. the bottom is kinda reddish. the apple person decided to change it cuz i only had it for 3 weeks. and they give u a month to return it for full refund

    heres a pic of it

    i just want to remove the jailbreak so it doesn't "void" the warranty

    You already voided your warranty.

    your best bet is to let it sit and dry completely. maybe try putting it in rice over night or some other drying technique. you may have done damage by keeping it on while it was wet. I would let it dry and try it tomorrow.

    maybe wait for the battery to run out then try DFU mode again, can you force a recovery from a backup in itunes?

    You should change your misleading thread title.

    here is a clue...

    while the iphone off...keep pressing the home button and plug the USB cable, the phone should restart in recovery mode.

    good luck
