Hello guys . So recently my phone (Xiaomi redmi note 5A Prime) fell into a pool of water . After letting it dry the device could turn on but was completely unresponsive . A day later the device was completely dead . i opened it up and show that the battery was in terrible shape with bumps and cuts all over the place so i decided to remove it (while i was trying to i got a few sparks as well) . That's the story so now i have a completely dead phone without a battery in it and i want to recover my files . There are some things inside that are very important and I need to recover them . When i plug the phone on to my Computer it is not getting recognized , i also tried Yodot Android Recovery with no luck . Is there anything i can do ?

Let it dry completely for awhile and try agan.

If it still doesnt work, your only choice is to send it in for professional data recovery, which isnt cheap.
It is completely dry 100% it's been like a couple of weeks that i've been trying to recover my files so i am pretty sure that it's dry . Now Professional Data Recovery is not available in my area so i will have to go a long distance to find someone to do it and it's going to get even more expensive . I would rather get a new battery and see if it gets recognized but that's my last resort that i would love to not go through

Most phones also require an authorization pop up on the screen to allow file transfers.
If these files really are that important, you should stop attempting to do anything to the device. Any further action simply increases the chance of data loss, assuming any is left there anyway.

You already said the phone was shorting out, a new battery would likely just cause more shorts further damaging the device.

Professional data recovery is the only decent shot you have at this point.

If they arent that important, go ahead and try a new battery.
