Unhappy [Q] Lost USB connection after SE bootloader unlock

After searching the forums i still havent found a solution.

The problem is i decided to unlock the bootloader using Sony on my Arc S a day ago.
Now when i connect the USB it will not connect to the MSC or MTP though the computer pings and sony companion comes up but says the usual reboot etc.

I have tried all the different combinations of turning USB debug and other things on and off but to no avail.

Has anyone else had this problems and fixed it?

Try reinstalling PC companion with the option in phone connection.

Factory reset did not work

Any thought on my next options would be appreciated?

Can i still install a different ROM to the memory card? I have no recovery so i dont know if i can do much of anything?

Thanks for any help.

I now have it running after using Wotanserver twice :s

The only problem now is it wont root (Bootloader is still unloacked, did it via Sony)?

I tried Doomlord but it says read only as it tries to do it.

I dont know how to use flashtools as for some reason it wont install on my computer (possible Kasperski stopping this).

How do you reinstall the ADB drivers cos i think that may be the problem.

you can't update via Sony Companion / OTA because you have unlocked bootloader..
