Well my ipod touch was dropped into my pool by accident. I took it out as soon as it fell out and I dried it as best as I could and it works to a degree. For example it won't play music but I can take a picture with it or go online with it. I charged it then shut it off and put it in a bag of rice. Do you still think I should do what your video says or take it to a repair shop or do you think it won't work because it was on for a while with the water still in it? Thank you for any feedback.
