PhilZ Touch recovery v3 for Elephone P8000 + easy ROOT
I am not the author, the author is russian gaz123cvnf. Very thank him for to compile this latest version for us. The only reason why I recorded it here is to help many English speakers who can't access to Russian forum - they don't speak Russian, can not handle the registration. I hope the author will not be angry I  recorded it here. If so, I will delete it. Authors post is here: http://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?s=&showtopic=678045&view=findpost&p=43622671

Other important instructions:

Do not forget erase file recovery-from-boot.p from System folder, otherwise, it restores stock recovery after the restart.

When working with original stock ROM versions "151014" / "151105" (October 14 / November 5), it is recommended to switch point "Advanced Functions" -> "Sdcard target" switch "/ data / media" (without the 0 at the end) and restart recovery. The rest of the folder to "0" can be removed. This should be done only once after installing Philz.

If you want to use external SD card (such as a Backup to it) the first thing you have to do is mount SD card manually. This is done in the "Mounts and Storage" -> "mount / storage / sdcard1". External SD card must mounted with each new start Philz recovery.




※Please make a backup of your device before installing or updating ROM

    Got root very easily from Playstore Supersu apk,but tried Flashift and Rashr ,with no joy,had to use Fastboot to flash.

    After getting the phone last night installed the 11/06 update and had a bootloop,spent hours on Win 10 trying to flash new system,no problem to today on Win 7.

    Great value hardware,rubbish programers.

    For me Flashify works well -> You had to do something wrong.

    I think you forgot this: "Settings/Developer options -> enable "OEM unlocking"

    Backup's are failing 50% of the time. TWRP isn't having an issue, so it is not sdcard related.
