As far as I recall, the fastboot executable has been moved from /tools to /platform-tools

I did everything and it worked fine so far but now I'm encountering a problem.
When I enter adb devices, daemon starts but my device is not shown. I've aleady searched for a solution but couldn't find anything helpful.
Would be great if someone could help me. Thanks in advance.
Try enabling USB debugging on your phone at Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging. There should be a checkmark beside USB debugging. See if "adb devices" now works.

The guide is for setting up the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) on one's computer. :) It is most useful to those who develop Android apps. It is also useful to non-developers of apps, especially the tools called adb and fastboot.
Before getting ICS on my Sensation XE, I've always wondered how ICS looked and felt like. I installed the SDK and ran an Android Virtual Device through the emulator. T'was uber cool. But, now I have ICS on my Sensation XE.
