    In short, I dropped my Statosphere in the sink and it's been drying for a few days.

    It's powers on when plugged in and I get a battery screen. If I hit the hold button it will power on to the phone itself, but after doing this it will randomly reboot after about two minutes and repeat the process until I hard reset it.

    On top of the random rebooting issue, it will continue scan media devices and will have no service. I've tried using multiple SD cards (Same issue).

    The phone is rooted (no custom roms, just root access) and has been working a week previously to me getting the phone wet. Any and all help is welcome. Thank you.

    I've always been told putting it in a bag with rice helps draw out all the moisture.

    Yes, I did that to no avail, but what did work was silica packets sealed in the battery and plastic bagged. (Patent Pending, haha)

    what also works well for me is leaving it sitting in the sun with the case as opened as possible (battery cover off, battery out, sim card out, mem card out ect)

    if that doesnt help it then its probably gone unfortunately, not much you can do to fix something once its shorted out.

    When I dropped my X2 in the can, I pulled it out, shook it good, took the back and battery out, and set it on top of my dvr where it got a steady supply of heat. Can't even tell anything happened to it now.
