I have an alcatel 1b which I am trying to install Magisk and TWRP on (any decent guides on that would be appreciated).
I'm told I first need to unlock the bootloader.

I am on a mac so I have installed ADB via homebrew

If I run
Code:
adb devices
, the device shows up.
I then run
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
and the device boots up into a screen which says "fastboot mode" at the top
I then try
Code:
fastboot oem unlock
and get
Code:
FAILED (remote: 'unknown command')
fastboot: error: Command failed

I tried
Code:
fastboot flashing unlock
and
Code:
fastboot oem unlock-go
and
Code:
fastboot oem get_unlock_code
and get the same response.

I also tried
Code:
ADB fastboot flashing unlock
and got
Code:
ADB: unknown command fastboot

If I enter recovery mode and then select "enter fastboot" I get a different screen with big red text saying "fastbootd" at the top.
If I then try
Code:
fastboot oem unlock
I get
Code:
FAILED (remote: 'Command not supported in default implementation')
fastboot: error: Command failed


Anybody know what I'm doing wrong/what I can do to get past this?

same here its because the bootloader is not unlocked and queries all say it is we need a backup or pull of someones boot.img to make a magisk boot img for our particular phone (seoul tct alcatel 5002s 1b) greatly appreciated if i could get a copy of that
