Ok, so after some hit and trials, I was able to root the new htc desire 501 dual sim and i am sharing the infromation about doing the same here.


Note:Unlocking bootloader is necessary to root this particular phone.If you are unwiling/incapable of unlocking your bootloader then please look elsewhere.
Also, before beginning make sure that you have all the adb and fastboot drivers installed for your device.

The fun part:
Unlock your bootloader:
1. Goto http://www.htcdev.com/ and register yourself
2.Click 'unlock bootloader' on the home page>get started.
3.Choose 'htc desire*' from the drop down list.
4.Follow the steps.

After the unlocking is done , download the vroot application from http://www.mgyun.com/en/getvroot and root your device.
Sweet!

I did everything as was mentioned and tried to unlock bootloader of my Htc desire 501, but at very last step of copying the token and hit submit button, it showed the error.. "token length is too small", i guessed token length was invalid. I copied the whole of token length as said from start of token to its end, but was in vain. In snapshots oh htcdev, it showed token with info as well as bootloader column. But in my case it showed only bootloader token. Help me short this out, there is error in my token length, how can i fix that, please help me. Or do u have unlock.bin file? Will that work for me? It it can help me out can you upload that file. Please help me to short this error.
