    i dropped mine in June. I did the rice thing and i guess it worked. I could boot but you couldnt see the screen unless you turned it on/off and it would flash and got dark. after a couple of days i turned it on and left the battery work for couple of min and it came back to life. my best guess would be to give it time..

    Alright update: I put it in rice for around 19 hours. Put the memory card back in and the battery it went into download mode which I thought that was good so then I got into recovery flashed my backup flashed the overclock kernal and it's good to go alright :D I was sick of the optimus slider because of the low internal memory lol
