After that im no mora able to enter into bootloader or recorvery. Is there a chance to save the phone with a stock Firm. ? Or any other ideas ?
First of all, how did you try to root? What version TWRP? What version SuperSU? The most common reason for bootloop/no boot after trying to root is outdated version of TWRP and/or outdated SuperSU. In which case, using the correct versions actually fixes the problem in most cases. So you jumped the gun a bit by wiping all those things.
You realize you wiped the OS by wiping system? So of course the phone can't boot to OS now, as there is nothing there to boot.
What is the current state of the device? Does the screen come on at all? If so, you should be able to get into bootloader. Nothing you described should prevent you from getting into bootloader. If it's truly bootlooping (rebooting over and over again) simply holding vol down on the next boot "cycle" should hopefully get you into bootloader. But if the phone is simply "stuck" on the HTC logo screen, you will need to do the following:
1) Hold Power + Vol up until the screen goes dark to reboot (may need to hold buttons for a minute or more)
2) The moment the screen goes dark, let go of the button, and only
hold vol down. Don't let go, until you see the bootloader screen.
3) If you don't access bootloader, and just get stuck again, you simply got the timing wrong. You either started pressing vol down too late, or let go too early. Simply repeat steps 1 and 2 above, until you get it right.
From bootloader, see if you can get into recovery. Since you wiped system, you'll need to put a new ROM on the phone, or restore a TWRP backup. Alternately, RUU back to stock if your version has an RUU.

I've helped a lot of folks return to stock with RUUs and otherwise, and I can't for the life of me figure out what this guide is trying to accomplish. It has a lot of extra steps, whose purpose I don't understand.
If you have the T-Mobile RUU, you should just be able to run the exe format from a PC. Alternately, if you have an SD card; now that you have the rom.zip, you can rename to 0P6BIMG.zip, put it on the SD, insert in phone and reboot to bootloader, and it will install automatically.
You can also flash the rom.zip with htc_fastboot (the "generic" fastboot tool can't handle the large file size) in RUU mode, but it's a few more hoops to jump through. But I can post those steps, if you don't have a PC or SD card to do either of the other 2 methods above.
