    HTC Desire fell in a lake, got wet, now won't fully start

    As my 5 year old started to drown at a public lake I had to rush in the water to grab him, not realizing I had my phone in the pocket, a rooted HTC Desire. Kid was OK after intaking a bit of water but phone didn't flare so well. After letting it dry for several days in a can of rice and baking soda, it flickers whenever I try to start it. But if I connect it to the computer via USB, I get the screen below. I tried a couple of the options but it still won't boot the phone. Seeing how I get this screen to display, it tells me the phone works. But it seems to need some sort of booting procedure. Any ideas?

    Go to XDA Developers they'll know.
    As a US citizen I have the right to criticize my government. My thanks for this is endless in magnitude.

    Fascism is here led by a hypersensitive psychopathic dictator having complete power, obsessively suppressing criticism, regimenting industry & commerce. Emboldening racism & aggressive nationalism.
