Pixel 4a Fastboot loop / Water damage
I recently had some water damage on my phone, turned it off and dried it out. The battery swelled so I bought a new one to replace it. After swapping the battery and trying to clean what I could on the PCB with 99% alcohol, it was stuck in a reboot loop whenever the battery was connected. The screen turns on and says its in fastboot mode, 'device is locked, boot slot: a, enter reason: combo key'. But then it quickly turns off, and repeats, with none of the buttons I press actually doing anything. (It will continue to reboot without me pressing anything).. And plugging it in does nothing, I don't think it stays on long enough for even my PC to recognize it.
I assumed maybe the buttons got damaged, and are being constantly activated.. Anyone think there would be a chance to get data off this at some point? The idea that it turns on at all and has some info to display makes me think it might be somewhat salvageable..
