Thank you for your quick response.

I already paste this file PG58IMG.zip on the sd sard root folder. the android-info.txt inside that zip is modified with a value I get from CID getter. below is the CID and MID of my sensation xe phone

modelid: PG5813001
cidnum: HTC_044

can you help me to create the correct android-info.txt? it seems that some syntax is missing or with spaces.

Thank you very much in advance.....

If it fails , then may be the HTC new driver causing the issue. I had no pain to setup adb on win7 32bit /64 bit and Ubuntu 10.10 / 11.04 /11.10 32bit .
Some guys got problem with new HTC driver. Try to use the old driver available on XDA.

This didn't work either but I managed to get a connection when I changed the connection type from charge only to htc sync and back =)

But now I've tried installing about 5 different ICS roms but I always end up in a bootloop. I already did a data and cache wipe but it didn't change anything :/


EDIT:
Nevermind, it seems that there was a Problem with the Firmware version. After installing it again, everything went fine and I got my Sensation with Android 4.0 Sensless =)
Thx Musarraf172

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.

When should you flash the Kernel?
When you are changing ROMs, should you always flash the kernel separately. If I have understood correctly, CWM does not flash the kernel.. right?
