Unhappy No bootloader/fastboot/recovery Htc Desire 516 dual

This phone has never been even mentioned on xda so there is nothing to search for.
Anyways i have gone thru some threads of similar phones and tried some one click root methods. They didnt work.

So i thought i should unlock the bootloader.
Just for the sake of it i tried to boot into recovery and was successful.
Then i started following those htcdev.com instruction which required me to go into the bootloader mode.
But whenever i try doing that it either:
-Remains stuck at htc logo screen (the 1st one and not the bootanimation)
-Boots normally

then i saw that i had to press this button release this after so many seconds and......
so just to be sure that im not making those silly mistakes i tried to go into bootloader thru adb which always remains stuck at the htc splash screen (htc - powered by android).
then i tried to go to recovery but now even that isnt possible.

so in short: i cant get into the bootloader so i cant unlock or root. I cant get into the recovery either. The phone otherwise is working pretty normal. But on trying to get into any modes i remain stuck at the 1st htc screen (and not the bootanimation) and then i have to remove the battery to get it booting normally.

It is HTC Desire 516 Dual sim and is on JB 4.3 (if u needed this)

and finally i got this log from a unlock tool if it makes it easier for you

Remove your battery before trying to boot into fastboot.

If you can't remove your battery, go to Settings->Power options And disable fast boot

Yes fastboot and bootloader are the same
Have you tried booting into bootloader with "adb reboot bootloader"

How do you mean isn't accesible? What do you see when you type those commands? What is the output?

I have this device, and i booted it in fastboot mode successfully. Open ADB and type "adb reboot-bootloader", the phone will reboot and remain stuck in the boot logo (the first). Now open fastboot and type "fastboot devices" and it will be recognized. I can't unlock bootloader, because when i type "fastboot oem get_identifier_token" it remains stuck, and it's so annoying because i want to root this device, can you help me?
