Smile Newbie with limited knowledge in need of help ..

Teenage son swam with his one month old LG G2. Ouch.

Used reviveaphone liquid as only 12 quid and worth a try. I'm amazed but it actually seems to have worked, except I think in water shorting the phone we've lost the root because on the firmware update screen I get a message "920K 8100 Unrooted" appearing in a rectangular box at bottom of screen.

I'm a little computer savvy but know nothing about mobile roots. I imagine this is the built in Rom that fires everything up which has got corrupted by the water. I realise I might be wasting my time and it may be fried but being only one month old I want to give it a good try before binning it.

I don't want any hacked rom or anything complicated just want original rom restored if possible?

I expect there's a sticky that someone can link me to? I'm not completely sure which model I have but the back is off and maybe there's some identifier in there?

Sorry to sound terribly dim! Any help most gratefully received!

If you do reply can you please bear in mind I know none of the technical terms! Thanks

Okay, so the device is working? Does it boot into a workable mode or are you only getting that box with unrooted text? That doubts like you're in download mode.
Without knowing which variant you have, this is going to be tough. Start with this thread:

That should link you to everything you need to know to get back to stock rom.

This link will take you to a thread which will use a program on Windows to get back to stock rom as well.
