Here is the first custom recovery for the HTC Desire C. You need to have adb configured for this to work.
Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */

Connect your phone to your PC using a USB Cable, then open up a command prompt. Type the following command:

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
This should have rebooted your device into the bootloader, if it didn't then you may not have the right drivers

Then to flash the recovery type:

Code:
fastboot flash recovery [B]recovery-name[/B].img

Bugs
Reboots after 10 minutes

DOWNLOAD

Clockwork Mod Superuser for those who want to root
DOWNLOAD
Choose 'Install zip from SD card'

After you have installed the recovery try my ROM :) http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=29256441

Update is now up, hopefully it fixes the mount issues .. can't test as I don't have device. Please give feedback ..

Installs, and boots into recovery alright, you can move up and down the options using the volume buttons but cannot actually select an option, pressing any of the three buttons on the bottom does nothing as does pressing the power, but great start.

Hope you manage to get hold of one to aid in your development.

EDIT.
power button now seems to select.
When moving up and down with vol + - it popped up saying "back menu button enabled" and now can select with power button.

Can someone post a Nandroid backup or flashable zip of the North American version of the phones OS. I deleted a few too many apks and there are no roms yet to flash to fix the issues ive created.

Ahhh yes.. if you move up or down using the volume buttons around 8 to 10 times it'll come up with the notice "back menu button enabled" at the bottom of the screen and you can then use the power to select.

Not quite what you were after, but I've just tried this rom that might fix things for you, it is chinese but you can select english as a language on install, it's pre-rooted and streamlined and I would say it is feeling a touch smoother moving through the screens and selecting stuff don't seem as laggy as when I first had the phone, might be worth a try.

click on the filename, and then the T with the symbol after it.

Will upload my ROM based on EU RUU in about an hour , no major tweaks just yet, but some bloatware removed and zipalign and deodex complete.

Cudos

Cudos to the developer. Just bought one and was dissapointed to see CMR not readily available. Cant help much as I am ultra noob when it comes to android and this is my main professional set so I wont/cant tamper with it to death or beta test (cant afford a whipeout atm), yet if you still need a file or something (and provide thorough instructions as to how-to), buzz. Hope you nail it soon.

HTC Desire C, unbranded, bought in Greece
Unblocked, S-on, rooted
Android 4.0.3
HTC Sense 4.0
HTC SDK 4.21
HTC Extension 403_1_GA_9
