So I just spent 5...yes 5 hours tring to root my HTC desire 601. After many img files that failed and lastly a CWM for a 4,2,2....i was told (somewhere mixed in google and my open tabs) that I need it for 4.2.2 .... I finally got the phone to boot up in a LOOKS LIKE I DID THE RIGHT STEPS menu "philz_touch_6.12.8-zara.img" but it gave me Status 7...hence the question which CWM do i need.

It's a HTC Desire 601. And.Ver.4.4.2

so far the only thing that has worked for me is using this method...(well obviously it didnt work but i saw progress)

A few things to be ready with before you go ahead and root your device:

Download and install HTC Drivers
Unlock your device bootloader by visiting the official HTCDev site
Download Minimal ADB and Fastboot. Install it on your PC
Download CWM Recovery Image. Place the philz_touch_6.12.8-zara.img file in the Minimal ADB and Fastboot folder in your Program Files directory
Download SuperSU zip and transfer it to the external SD card on your phone

On your PC, launch Minimal ADB and Fastboot
Connect the phone to PC via USB data cable
Type in the following command to flash CWM recovery on your phonefastboot flash recovery philz_touch_6.12.8-zara.img
Once done, disconnect the phone and power it off
Now reboot to bootloader mode again by pressing Volume Down + Power

You should now boot into CWM Recovery
Select Install Zip, and on the next screen Choose Zip
Select the CWM-SuperSU-v0.98.zip file that you had transferred earlier to your external SD card

Wait till CWM flashes the SuperSU zip
