    alright so this is in regards to a friends ipod.. i am trying to fix it for them

    the story::: the ipod was droppd in the tub a few months ago, it was only in water for a few seconds, then the ipod was crasehd, everything was restored and it works but stil has a few problems if im wondering could be fixed

    1. The Power button dosent work
    it only turns on by holding the Power and Menu button for 30-60 seconds and if i plug it in the computer
    i was wondering if there was a way to set the ipod so it turns on using only the menu button
    i think there is hope for this...

    2. It says "No Wifi"
    i think this is screwed up, but i was wondering if there is anyway to reset Wifi or to activate it or hack it so it works

    Thank You

    did you put in in a bowl with rice and silica?

    if you didnt, your friend has 2 options.

    1. YOu got a new brick, you can use it to build a house

    2. Send it to an Apple Store, and pay, paaayy!!

    the reason it says no wifi is because the wifi chip got destroyed.. hell never use wifi or bluetooth now.. because im pretty sure its the same chip? or they are located in the same place... so yeah.. and about changing the home button.. i wouldnt think so... how would you close apps?

    idk, i just figured there was a way to fix that problem becuz the power button works, but it just dosent work to turn the ipod on , it works to do other things like locking the screen
