iPhone X occasionally reboot and overheating - Water Damaged
I’m currently working on a Iphone X, which has been a victim of water damage (Not salt water) some time ago. The phone shows unnatural behaviour such as randomly shutting off, attempting to reboot, however ends up boot looping. If you leave the phone for some time after the boot loop, it will turn on normally. Quite frequently, when playing games or doing anything that requires more ‘power’ from the cpu, the phone will become decently hot in the area of the motherboard. Can mostly be felt on the back glass of the Iphone. Sometimes I could go about 2 days, without having any problem with the phone. I would just like to point out that the battery hasn’t been replaced after the water damage situation.
Upon inspection of the device, is has got some severe rust near charging port, taptic engine and loudspeaker. There has also formed water crystal within the original OLED display. Besides that nothing really stands out.
Usage wise the phone is capable of all the usual tasks, such as wifi, bluetooth, 3d touch, play sounds, front and rear facing cameras, FaceID, buzz and much more.
The thing I have been wonder about, is if all these affected components could cause a short or if the main motherboard itself, has been damaged from the water. Before beginning to take the motherboard apart, I see someones expertise and advice, to maybe resolve the issue and pin point the problem.
I have provided images and videos below, to get a better understand of the defekt and how the phone currently operates upon startup. Thanks in advance for your help!

Ist dies eine gute Frage?
