Did you try putting it in DFU mode?

  • Plug your device into your computer
  • Turn off the device by holding the Sleep/Wake or Power button and swiping it off
  • Hold the power button for 3 seconds
  • Begin holding the Home button without releasing the Sleep/Power button for 10 seconds
  • Release the power button and continue holding the home button until you get a popup from iTunesthat your device is recognized as being in recovery mode.

Welcome to iPhoneForums, benrab17!

Error 2001 points to a problem with the USB connection.

If you haven't done this yet:
Try different cables to connect your iPhone to the computer, use a different USB port, connect your device to a different computer.

Hope that helps.

I did see a lot of people seem to be having this error the fixes I read said that you need a new battery. Google error 2001 and battery. Maybe that is your problem?

It's possible that there's a fault in the docking connector. If you have an Apple Store nearby, make a Genius Bar appointment and have a diagnostic check done.
