    My iTOuch got a little water. I dried it for 3 days and hardware seems to be working fine.
    Software crashed because of unexpected battery failure(cuz of water)

    Now the thing won't go past the apple logo.
    Tried recovery but gets stuck on the loading bar(wont move at all)
    Running Win7 3.1.3 itouch jailbroken with spirit

    What to do? Can't load, can't recover

    How did you have your iPod attached to you if you were naked skinny dipping? Or did you just forget you had it in your hand and jumped in?

    Anyway, one of the worst things you can do with a water damaged iPod is turn it on. It will short out the circuits and damage it more. Keep it in a bowl of rice for a week and then turn it on.

    You should have immediately taken it and put it in a bag of rice (off, of course) and let it dried for ~1 week.

    Well it got VERY LITTLE water on it. So Like I said the hardware seems working fine. It just that It won't go past the apple logo and won't completely recover. Like I said hardware seems working fine. My phone also got the same amount of water on it and it's working FINE>

    Evidently the hardware isn't working fine if it doesn't work. My suggestion, more rice.
