    i've played around with multiple roms back and forth and never had any issues. but recently i flashed back to ultimate droid 3.3.1 and in the past i've had no issues with any rom honestly but tonight my phone landed in water for the first time but only a tiny little ammount of it. i tried it off and the touch screen started acting up so i shut it down and rebooted. it worked for a short while then the volume button refused to respond. so i tried to reboot and its now stuck on the M logo. i tried going into recovery mode and it got into it once but froze and i had to pull the battery. now i can't get into clockwork mod recovery or anything. its just staying on the M logo. is there anything i can do to repair my phone? i've had it for a little over a year now and i could upgrade to the D-3 but i dont have the money for it just yet and i dont know if i can wait a whole week to get the money for it....

    stick it in rice (go buy some if you need to) for atleast 24 hours, don't try to turn it back on again until it sits in the rice.

    Rice helps soak up moisture in the phone. Its a very common practice. I would take your battery out and try using the rice. It might help. Also try to leave the phone off for 24 hours or so. It can damage it permanently if you try and power up a wet device.

    Flash an sbf after you let it dry and then root it again. If you sbf back to 2.0.1 the rooting process is very straightforward. Its as easy as dropping an update.zip file on your sdcard and flashing it in stock recovery.

    pull the battery and as you put it back in hold down the x key on the physical keyboard. Power back on while still holding x if it doesn't power up when putting the battery back in.

    To flash an sbf, you don't need to boot the phone up, all you need to do is boot into bootloader to flash it. Wait out the 24hrs or however long for it to dry and then flash an sbf, then wipe data/factory reset (in stock recovery), then boot the phone up normally and re-root.

    ah thanks guys really for all the help
    i might still upgrade to the droid 3 anyway later in the week but until then the d-1 will have to hold out when i finally re-root lol.

    any word on when the d-3 will be rootable though?
