Hey everyone

So my friends iphone is in a recovery mode loop. The phone wont turn back on, but once I plug it in to the computer it says connect to itunes. Once I connect it to itunes it detects the iPhone as device in recovery mode, So I went ahead and tried to restore it, but it keeps giving me an error. it says "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (2001)." Does anybody know how I can fix this problem?

My friend said she didnt drop it or spill anything on it, she said she was just texting somebody and then the phone shut off. The only way it comes back on is when I plug it in to the computer and the only thing showing is the connect to itunes screen. Thanks

I haven't seen an error 2001 in a loooong time. The old solution for that would be to make sure your iTunes and Mac OS is updated beyond I think 10.6.X IIRC. Or try using a USB hub to connect your device. And also, try putting the device into DFU mode before restoring.
