I think the bootloader needs to be unlocked first for "fastboot boot twrp.img" to work? Isn't it? If unlocking wasn't necessary, everyone would've just booted recoveries to root their phones. (so that the sdcard doesn't get erased).

I sincerely doubt that the OP has an unlocked bootloader.

Actually I never tried fastboot boot command on a locked bootloader. If it requires an unlocked bootloader and OP has a locked one I have no idea to recover his data.

Please guy ! You're a genius !
I love you !
I just used the reboot comand and my phone goes On !
Now I can back up my files

(Ps : For the people who'll have the same problem, you have to use your charger with you're computer and keep pressing the volume down while putting the charger in the phone to go in boot menu, but be carfully, you can't shutdown after that only solution, remove batery !)

Yes, you can! Just make sure you don't restore the /efs partition which contains the imei and other files which are unique to every device!
