Thank you so much for your help. I did all the items you suggested. The phone Is turning on and asks to select a language and then a country. Then it has a pic of male connecter and itunes telling it to connect to itunes. One other thing. It was dropped in water for a brief second. thanks Maria

To anybody else with the same problem:

I got a phone stuck in a reboot loop. It would get to the Apple logo then restart. I tried putting it in DFU mode to restore in iTunes and it gave me an error 2001 and occasionally and error 2006.

The solution was to change the battery! £5 battery on eBay and now it's working again. Got me an iPhone 4 for a bargain now.

I had the same problem and the replacement of the battery worked it out.

Restore wasn't necessary, just the Update, so I got my phone fully restored with all my apps and data available.

Many thanks for this post & answers!

100% best solution with out battery change!!

It is due to battery, but no need of replacement...

Yes, just ask in any mobile shop to put charge to your battery externally..

Now try inserting battery and restore will be successful!

Enjoyyy!!!

Unplug everything from your computer except got the keyboard, mouse, and Iphone. Restart the computer. If using windows, disable your security software 100%. Try again. If that does not work, try a hard reset as explained here:

1) Turn off the iPhone. Make sure the USB male end of the cable is attached to the system. iTunes should be launched.

2) While holding the home button plug your iPhone in.

3) Follow the on screen instructions to a hard reset. This removes all data from the phone.

4) Try restoring oncemore

I had this problem too. After replacing my battery in my iphone 5s, my phone got stuck in DFU mode. When connecting to iTunes to restore, i got the restore error 2001. After extensive research, i bit the bullet and went to a local shop to have the battery replaced yet again.

The battery replacement worked. Apparently the first battery replacement was faulty. But the second replacement worked. Iphone is back to how it was.
