If the only trigger for this event is water exposure, flashing nothing will help. If baseband and imei showed null only after this event, well that's that.
The only way of getting a phone operational after swimming (which is not always successful...
1) remove battery immediately. Do NOT power on
2) submerge immediately in a bag of uncooked rice (48-72hr minimum)
Any powering up before the end of the 48-72 hours will render this "trick" useless. Any heat will too.
Rice absorbs moisture. Heat evaporates water. Rice draws it out. Steam spreads it. Also, powering up causes heat.
Water is very corrosive so once components are identified as not working, chances are, they'll never work again. Even the rice trick, you need to be extremely lucky for it to work

Don't beg for thanks. The "Thanks" feature exists so that important threads are not cluttered with pointless "thanks" posts. Receiving thanks is not an achievement, nor should it be your goal.
