Long story short...

Whilst looking on the side of the road for something one of my mates lost..
I saw something that looked like a phone case of some sort so I gave it a nudge
with my foot and flipped it over to find this

I'd most likely be right in saying it's truly rooted beyond repair? :whistle:

Lol at IT Crowd!

Is this a gen 4? Is it a GSM or CDMA model? If its a CDMA, you could fix it up with new parts and sell it to someone who wants to use the Virgin Mobile pre-paid plan.

I fix a few of these a day (see my sig) .

Main pcb looks fine, just needs a new digi/lcd , but if its bee reported lost/stolen by its owner then you have an iPod.

By the way, i "got" your thread title...very good :beer:

Yeah I'm thinking that, But my main concern is that the water damage pads have been tripped..

I'll have to get one of friends room mate to have a look for me, As he works for Apple servicing/repairing them

If your concern is about just the water indicator stickers themselves then ebay sells new stickers. ;)

Wondering if water damage can often progress after the pcb seems dry & functional?
Be interesting just to know what common sources of later water damage are. Corrosion, moisture sensitive parts, damage from live shorts showing up later, contaminate deposits leading to later shorts? I mean some factories wash pcbs in dishwashers with normal water & air dry. No DI water, no oven baking. I know speakers, mics & some buttons shouldn't swim.

Love the glass backs. :D Like there wasn't enough breakable glass in phones already.
