You now have a working custom recovery up and running on your Elephone P7000 and you can reboot into the same using a root-requiring app like Quick Boot that lets you get into various modes on your phone using single-tap options.
Now that your phone is rooted and also have a custom recovery, you can load it up with your favourite custom ROMs, custom kernels, custom files, and root-requiring apps. While you may just be getting started out with these things, a little help should take you far away in the customization world and our guide on what you can do with a rooted phone helps you with exactly that.
Go ahead, read the guide, and see what you can do with your phone. Usually, it is flashing a custom ROM to bring in more customization options on your phone, flashing a custom kernel to improve the performance of the phone, and making full backups of the phone to be restored at a later time when things are not working well on your phone.
