TWRP for the HTC Desire 500
As far as I know, it only works for one sim (z4u), but it might as well work for dual sim (z4dug)
People reported it to work on dual sim.

I don't know, because nobody tested it, and I only have one SIM. But I'm quite sure it works, and if it doesn't, nothing could go wrong.

Edit: The software version doesn't matter, if it works for 1.20 it will work for all versions.

I can confirm that it's working on dual SIM device. Until now I have any issues. I have 1.13.401.2 software version.

1. Download the kernel and superuser zip, and save them on you sdcard
2. Mount /system. (under Mount)
3. Flash the kernel (under Install)
4. Flash the superuser (same)

Wait. I have an issue... It restarts my phone during making of backup. I tried to make a backup of boot, data, android_secure and system partitions. It made backup of boot, data, android_secure and their md5 checksums, but after, during making of backup system partition, the phone restarts and boot to system.

Same problem here, plus I can't use the mount device option, I can select the partitions but then I don't have any button to do it !!!
