I have had my samsung s3 mini since the beginning of the year, a couple of months ago if fell from my pocket into the toilet. I immediately picked it up took the battery, sim card out and placed it in a bowl of rice for a day or two. It worked fine and has been up until last night, when it all the icons decided not to work. I cant ring, message, receive calls or anything, I can unlock it using my pattern, and swipe across the screens, but not access any of the features, nor settings. When i try and do a hard reset? holding volume down key, home and power, then clicking power up key, the android fella appears and it says Downloading...Do not turn off target!!! but doesnt appear to do anything,
Any advice?
TIA x

you need to press and hold volume up button + home key + and power key to enter recovery mode then clear cache and factory reset.
Pressing and holding the volume down key + home key + power button allow you to enter into download mode you cannot hard reset your phone on download mode
