    Rezound unlocked rooted S-ON

    River dunked and bricked?

    New to the forum but not to technology. I had a Rezound. Great phone. Loved it. Did a lot of research and chose it over the Razr, and Nexus back in November. It was the right choice. Look at the resale values of those 3 phones today. Anyway, I was kayaking down the river (and I had everything in a water-tight bag) when I spied a mature bald eagle in a tree right next to the bank. I paddled up river (huff, huff, huff, huff) and positioned my kayak against a log next to the bank. Grab my phone out of the bag, and as I was about to snap the picture, the current flipped my kayak over. I couldn't see it, but I was positioned against a smaller branch that was at a 45degree angle against the log. The kayak went down. I went down. The phone went down. It was only for a about 3 seconds, but I have been unsuccessful at getting the Rezound back to life. Here's where I am at:

    The phone was Unlocked, rooted, S-ON, running Scott's CleanRom 4.5. with the Gingerbread patch applied. Amon Ra 3.13.

    I took out the battery, SIM, and SD card and let it dry (used the bag-of-rice trick also). I even pulled the red cover off (voided any warranty which I'm sure I didn't qualify for at this point anyway). Have let it dry for 6 days. It will boot to the second HTC white screen and then reboot. I can get it into the bootloader and use fastboot to flash image files, etc... I have tried unlocking/relocking, flashing various images to boot/system/recovery. But I cannot boot into recovery to flash the ROM. Every time I choose "Recovery" the phone reboots.

    Also, at this point, I'm not sure if the USB is charging the battery even though I have access via the SDK/fastboot from the PC. I do have the SD card available to me, but using the PH***.zip file doesn't seem to help. I've become rather adept at using the "fastboot" command. Can't use the "ADB command, I imagine that is due to the fact that I can't boot the phone all the way up into debugging mode.

    Now, I still have some confusion regarding version numbers of the boot.img, ROM, system.img, recovery images, etc... So, maybe there's still hope, but my hopes are not high. Right now using a S3 with a few days left on my 14 day return period. Not sure if I want to stick with it or get a replacement Rezound.

    Here's what info I can get from the bootloader(HBOOT) and fastboot:

    Friendly Bump

    I know I could probably attach this thread to one of the "flashing/custom ROM" threads, but I don't want to hijack another thread, and my problem isn't really about flashing, but more about is there something I can do via software to fix my Rezound which is suffering from maybe a hardware problem (It got wet).

    Sorry for the late reply but try running a stock RUU(you can probably still get them from scottsroms.com)
    Helpful Rezound Links:
    Guide to Unlocking, Rooting, ROM'ing, and FAQ

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    If you don't understand something, ask questions.
    Please follow the posting guidelines.

    An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

    Tried flashing Vigor_Stock_Doedexed_3.14.605.5.zip by copying it as PH98IMG.zip to my SD card. It seemed to flash okay. But my phone still only boots to the second HTC white screen and then reboots.

    I can boot into fastboot and flash individual partitions.
    I can boot into bootloader. But as soon as I choose 'recovery' my phone reboots.
    I tried reflashing recovery-ra-vigor-3.14-gnm.img to the 'recovery' partition, but no luck.

    I will try an older stock ROM as I thought 2.01.605.11 was the latest, not 3.14.605.5.

    Should I be locked or unlocked? Should I be using rooted or non-rooted ROMs?

    Is there a way to repartition the internal storage or to at least verify/check it?

    Well, I think I made some progress. I locked the bootloader, then placed the RUU_Vigor_3.14.605.10_PH98IMG.zip on the external SD card as PH98IMG.ZIP and booted into bootloader. The flash seemed to do its thing, it unzipped and went through a list of unzipping/writing to different areas of the internal structure. It did 5 of them and then rebooted and did all of them. Each one said "OK" on it. It asked to hold the power button reboot which I did, and it does the same thing. Just boots into the second HTC white screen and then reboots. I may trying pulling the boot.img out of that file and flashing it separately. Still can't get into recovery.
