Default Can't use Play Store and install CWM Recovery

Hi guys!
So, today i unlocked the bootloader, but after that the Play Store stopped working.
The phone tells me that Google Play Services have stopped working, and can't do nothing.
In some cases the error doesn't show up, and the Play Store tells me that my phone is not connected to internet (wich is not true)
I have rooted the phone too, how can i solve this problem?

Another problem that i have is that actually i can't install CWM recovery.
The installer doesn't detect my phone, which is kinda strange, since the phone was detected by the "bootloader unlocker".
So, how can i install this recovery?

PS: I have installed drivers via flashtool and i have the latest stock rom.
PPS: I have an XPERIA SOLA.

For install cwm you need to enable usb debugging in settings/developer options

And for play store you may try go to settings/apps/all and clear chache and data

Hi and thanks for the reply!
I already enabled usb debug but unfortunately it doesn't work.
I tried to clear play store cache and data too, but it doesn't work as well

EDIT: Ok so... i flashed completely the stock firmware because i had some problems... the bootloader remains unlocked?
I have to root the phone again now right?
Mnm... i need some guides to know how to root "well" the phone and install the cwm recovery...

Try rooting via Flashtool
If needed you could install a stock fw image/backup with it.

The bootloader remains unlocked untill you relock the bootloader so you don't have to worry about it........
yes, you have to root and install CWM again.....
the simple way for that is flashing a pre-rooted CWM installed kernal right away... that will save a lot of your workload...
You can find the kernals in the sola development section
