You can not unlock the bootloader,but you can root with towelroot or Stumproot.
You can Flash this Recovery

This Recovery works,but you can not save a Backup to External SD,only Internal Memory and Restore not working for me.

Almost there, Yes that is correct and after rooting your device install the recovery linked By letschky above so you can flash the rom
