Ran over DashDaq

Unreal, It must have fell out of my sweater pocket yesterday afternoon when I was shoveling driveway and didnt realize it. I got home today from work and backed into driveway, left to get groceries came home and saw it under the dually track upside down.
I picked it outa the snow, no cracks or damage to outer case but its been out in the -28c weather for 24 hrs and then ran over....

Its in a bag of rice as we speak...

Hey Id wait a long time to try and power it up.. I'm not sure how wet it got, but seeing how it had no power it will not shock it self, until you power it up..

I washed an Iphone in the wash.. It was in water for a couple hours, I did the rice trick and let it sit out for about 3 weeks.. But that was sitting in water. This only worked, because that day the phone died on me and had no power. Phone had nothing wrong with it at all! Screen is perfect.

But if the running it over did damage then its done.. But if it's water damage you might save it. Just a thought wait a while to turn it on.

Maybe the water damaged is limited because of the below freezing temp.

My Ipod sure doesnt like the cold!

I was outa of town the last couple days (work) so I couldnt get on here to update.
I wasnt concerned so much about water damage as I blew all the snow outa the nooks and crannys before it melted.
I plugged it in before I went to bed that night and......

It works!!
Whewwww!
