Have the ignition key in POS II when jump starting the battery or when disconnecting/reconnecting the battery.

Try first cycling the key fob, close/open the doors a few times.
May also try disconnecting the car battery overnight

You might try using the slim key to lock and unlock the car 3 or more times too...this reset things on the older model cars so don't know if it will on our cars or not but it's worth a try. Typically immobilizer issues have to do with lack of power somewhere- either in the fob battery or the main battery in the car itself.

I'd check all the various fuses first. I'm not sure where they all are on the C30. Be sure to check the ones on the CEM somewhere up underneath the dash. I'm not sure those are shown in the owners manual. They might be. Disconnect the battery before pulling random fuses to look at them or you'll likely get into even more trouble.
