I would repeat the update process and use the startup assistant to reset the unit to factory defaults. Once done, go through the startup wizard. Verify your ESC connection with the 3Digi was not disturbed.

I had a similar problem with servos after initial setup. Just had to "restart" the 3Digi to get it working. There are some setup changes that require reboot in order to take / activate.

Redoing throttle endpoints between tx and esc then between tx-esc-fbl might help. Esc's won't arm if they aren't seeing 0 throttle. Imagine that's what's happening if there weren't​ any issues with the update

(Edit)
Glanced over the first post but now see that you tried that already. Oops lol

Well turns out I had to remove software and reinstall. And until i sorted out the channel mapping that the esc came right.
But still strange though I can no longer power the 3digi through the usb since updating anymore. Only through powering up the heli which is a pain.
