The policy is generally like this:

Does it Turn on?

Yes

No


If you answered yes its not bricked.


Try plugging it into the pc without the battery and trying to enter download mode.

Also, what rom/kernel are you using?

Did you try entering download mode without the battery?

Also, is your battery fully charged?

Also, you can try the hard reset button on back of the phone tooo..

I wouldnt say your the fist one who has this issue..but to be sure we gotta try a few standard stuff first before assuming anything..

I wouldn't do a IT GOT WET excuse. That's turns into $100 TEP deductible.

When this happened to me, I ended you letting the phone sit and charge then put it in download mode and odin to stock.
