How to remove preloaded applications in nokia asha 501 dual sim?is there any update for that?
There won't be any update for that, although a lot of applications are preinstalled upon the memory card.
Happy to have helped forum in a small way with a Support Ratio = 37.0

I have tried one method by Re-installing same apps but it won't solve the issue atleast in Asha 501 where it checks previous installments.
I also need these unnecessary apps uninstalled and on the web most methods are for previous Asha series phones that may not work with new software platform fo Asha 501.
You can also check Nokia Developer bugs for Asha 501 Dual SIM and post this issue for them to help out. A lot of good bugs reported here.
I find the ROM method has been pointed here a lot of times but due to forum restrictions no one detailed it step-by-step.
Any one kind enough please let me know the steps (but in "detailed notes" since no knowledge about these techno stuff) to remove these apps via ROM and extracting them from the memory

AbhayK, the Nokia Developer section is about supporting developers, not end-users. Furthermore there, the bug-reporting section is unmonitored since Q3/2012. Unfortuantely, the steps for Series 40 might not work with the new Asha software platform. Looking at the Nokia 501 emulator, which exposures its file structure because it is an emulator, it looks very similar to Series 40. We have to wait and see.

urprising that bug-reporting section is inactive
Developers can buy tickets which work for bug-reporting as well. Furthermore, reporting this does not help because Nokia should be aware of this issue since the year 2007. Back then, Nokia started to include 3rd party app which cannot be uninstalled. Samsung even does such things in Android. Not sure what or who forces our manufactures to such crazy things. From my point of view this behaviour is insane. If they have not learned till today, they have their reasons.
I just unboxed my Asha 501 and this is a huge disappointment. I can't clean my own home screen from garbage like the demo version of Assassin's Creed? Seriously?
I'm on the verge of returning the device, which otherwise is perfect for me.
