Cannot connect to PC nor WiFi

Hello!

I know there have been a few number of people with an identical problem posting here, but I couldn't find a solution yet and so I'd like to ask if anyone can help in any way.

My Sony (bought in Japan) was rooted (also with the Japanese flavour root), but I had some problems installing kindle due to lack of space. I figured I had to do all the partitioning thing, so I just gave it up at some point and, dunno what I was thinking, decided to install the restore-set 1.0.04.12210 by porkupan, if I remember correctly. After resetting, it opens normally, but now it can't connect to the PC (the Data Transfer Mode button never shows up) and sometimes it charges, sometimes it doesn't. It usually always charges if I use the wall socket, but anyway I never had any issue with the USB before (exact some one) and think the problem it's in the device itself.

It also can't scan any open WiFi network, so Wifi is also out. I suppose the only way to access the device is through the SD card; I've tried the rescue pack; restore pack and others, but it will only let me update with the 1.0.04 one. Nothing really changes.
If it helps any, the script log on the SD card says:

Spoiler:

Obviously I'm not an expert and probably shouldn't have started this all playing thing but, if possible and someone is willing to help, I would just like to revert it to the original state so I can connect through USB and all.
Another thing is that when I check device information, the firmware version still states 3.0.01.03190.
Thank you!

Not much time has passed, but bumping this!

I contacted the Sony support center and, as expected, they also told me to try the reset button, to format the memory, etc. All of those I've already tried (quite a few times too), so can only send the device for repairs... Except that for the mentioned price I could go ahead and buy myself 2 new devices instead^^;;

Does anyone have any good idea?
If not, that's what I will really end up doing... =(
