Jessica, here is what I have about that error Error 2001 from here

The Mac OS X kernel extension "IOUSBFamily" that was bundled with late 2008 / early 2009 MacBooks, as well as the 10.5.6 update, has a bug where it fails to properly recognize an iDevice in DFU Mode. It can be resolved by updating to 10.5.7 (or later), or using a USB hub.

Little bit more of a discussion on here I hope it helps.

Of course, you also followed our guide about liquid immersion ;-) Good Luck to you....

Thanks... I did follow that but I just don't know what to try any more.... maybe its time to buy a new phone.

Jessica,

No way:-) keep on trying as they said in the discussion. I think you are runnig more into the kernel issue than anything else...
