[Q] Thrown in water now does not boot properly, ideas?
had a 32A magic, on which I installed CM 6.1. In my hands the poor device lived and prospered. Then I decided to give it to my daughter and hell broke loose.
She handed it to me, and it couldn't get into recovery. I tried and tried to avail. THEN she told me that it has slipped from her hands and fell in water (!)
The mobile probably got fried, but I've left it to dry out. Then I tried to boot into recovery and it worked. I could also start the phone but this worked intermittedly: while at some times I saw the "HTC Magic" text at boot, folllowed by the CM splash animation, followed by a normal entry to Android, at other times it got stuck at the initial "HTC Magic" screen for ever.... Now it gets stuck at "HTC Magic" does not proceed with boot
I tried wiping everything (factory,cache, dalvik), reinstalling CM & gapps. Nothing. I tried installing yoshi ginger. Same result...
Obviously this is not fully bricked, but may as well be damaged beyond repair. Any advice from the knowledgeable lads here?
