comment Trying to root my Sony Xperia Miro, “command not found”?
@ItzikSamara probably not, as orlando states all the command returns is fastboot: command not found. Orlando: Are you sure you're in the directory where the fastboot executable resides in? If so, your "current directory" might simply not be in your $PATH. Try ./fastboot devices instead (i.e. pre-fixing the fastboot command with ./ to tell the system to look for it in the current directory).

Are you talking about icons on your homescreen? If so, what launcher/homescreen app are you using?

Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! We will need much more information to give good recommendations here. Please edit your question and include at least which CM packages you've used (and their download source). Are you sure you picked the right ones for your device? Have you wiped at least cache and Dalvik (otherwise instability or boot-loops are quite common)? Can you still boot into recovery?

comment adb sideload does not transfer data
That does nothing but restarting the ADB daemon to listen on the USB port – which it does by default. So what trick is it supposed to do?

It could also be the data of some app which is in the way, if it's a "core app" needed to run the system, so a factory-reset might be required. Of course, you could also boot into recovery and try deleting the app directories below /data/data one by one (i.e. delete one, reboot to see if the problem is gone, if not repeat with the next) to avoid a complete reset – which can be compared to the "delete data" button in "manage applications". The corresponding apps would re-create their directories then.

Not that I can answer your question – but for those who could, a few more details will be helpful: What firmware upgrade where you performing (from which version to what other)? Where did you obtain the update file from? How did you apply the update? What kind of connection is no longer working (Kies, MTP, other)? Please, edit your question and provide those details. It will significantly improve your chances for (good) answers.

As you've used the boot-loop tag: Have you checked with its tag-wiki? Do the pointers help you with your case? If that didn't solve the issue: What have you tried, and where are you stuck? If you've solved the issue: Be welcome to answer your own question to share your solution and experience. Thanks!

Are you sure you've got a network connection? To me that sounds as if your device is not "fully connected". Try going to the settings page (Settings→WiFi) and check the details for your AP. Does it show "connected", or something else (like a repeating "obtaining IP address")? Maybe your router is blocking the device (e.g. MAC filter).
