I hope you get lucky. I didn't disassemble mine completely, just the back cover, battery, sim and SD card, but it wasn't a nexus.

More than likely you're out of luck cause you turned it on and even plugged it in directly after. It's likely shorted out now.

It seems like everything but the screen is working. As I said it seems like a resistor blew, couldn't I just replace that little cable?

I had to leave my sons iPod touch in rice for two weeks before it finally fired up and started working as normal (even after I charged it and switched it on as soon as it hit wet)

I thought it was also important that you take out the batteries

Maybe your screen it's dead, you should change it
