You are wrong. This procedure reflash the firmware, but if your phone is already with the latest version, for you this will looks like full reset.

Have you ever tried any guide to recover your phone from getting water? If not, go for it. I suggest you using recover mode at first, as it has response on the screen. Turn on your phone, and when it shows Apple logo, release power button then long press the home button. If it works it will show "Connect to iTunse".
