    This iPhone has only been used as an iPod Touch since I've long upgraded. It's been sitting around for a while, the battery had completely drained, and now it won't work at all. It's continually in DFU mode with the error code 2001, which I looked up on Apple.com and it's pretty ambiguous. Nothing I do can get this phone to restore itself. It's never been jailbroken or anything either.

    Any help?

    Google would have brought you something like this:

    Error 2001
    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.

    Le sigh.

    I've tried restoring the iPhone on two different macs both running Lion. If it were as simple as updating the OS or finding an answer on Google, I wouldnt be posting here. Looking for users with expertise, not google skills.
