DONATE TO ME
Exclamation Just want to share.

Today, i dropped my XPERIA X10 Mini Pro in the pool and the LEDs were changing color, very strange situation haha. was a time when the LED was red and began to fade away, I remembered the eye of the Terminator robot.

So, i followed a tip, removed the battery, dried with a hairdryer, but the screen started to turn white, the camera was also white, I was making things worse. then I remembered another way to recover it. I dipped the phone in uncooked rice, so that moisture is absorbed, and after eight hours, the phone booted successfully and I'm installing it now gingerbread on it.

Here is a tip for someone to help if something like this happens. On contact with water, immediately remove the battery, dry the smartphone, deep it in uncooked rice and leave it for at least 24 hours to dry thoroughly and avoid damage. I left only for 8 hours because I had quite dried with a hairdryer, but this is a very risky technique as it can damage the display and other sensitive internal components.

But that's just the plug, the phone must be disassembled in order to take the battery out!
