I dont now how i can do post message for all.

so if anybody is interested, visit the site and try the root on your own desire 500. I cannot guarantee it works at all, neither it's safe. but if anybody gonna test (use google translate for the site), please do so and report.
If the thread violates any xda rules, please mods move/delete it or pm me.
Enjoy

OK, seems what i posted didn't work well. BUT, @oblikas seems to have made a kernel that removes system write protection.
[KERNEL][ROOT]KangBang_r1 kernel for Desire 500 * System write protection removed *
HTC Desire 500 - Ultimate thread

i suggest you keep up with his thread, rather than this one. if all is fine, i can re-organize this thread.
Thanks

Not jet. Just read it Shall try this on weekend. But FYI, I do not have "One Sim" version. And looking forward SPSPaWn thread to see does anybody already try it...

At the moment all about he write is for Dual Sim model, but on the Koush site, Desire 500 is not supported ...jet. So. maybe is better to wait little bit more

I would suggest you to unlock your bootloader first,but you will lose your warranty.
Maybe it wont work without unlocking the bootloader.I tried without unlocking the bootloader and it didnt work.
Maybe someone could port cwm for our device.

Yes. I confirm that metod working. I managed to unlock the bootloader (htcdev.com), then to install CWMRecovery and to root the Desire 500 (one sim). It would be the time for opening a topic dedicated to HTC Desire 500...maybe someone is reading this.
