For some new users don't know how to flash ROM, This tutorial shows the whole process.
At first you need download two files to a new folder and remember the location, extract them. Then follow the part 1 to install the driver.

Driver download: https://mega.co.nz/#!55BQkKiR!OPBrnj7SXxsUbuchAjV8orT9SMAOMpbDesYTMO2DDHY
Flashtool download:https://mega.nz/#!ixdnhDLK!oOaAsJrcvJI0vH3fTsUOYjtDxQ_HT61E-_iuo6fTuKk                                                                                                     

Video tutorial:

PART 1

Method A
1. Install driver
    a.  Download the drive .  Save the file and remeber the position.
    b.  Unzip the file and open it.
    c.  Double click to open the file.
    d.  Right click "DriverInstall", choose "Run as Administrator". The device will install automatically.     
Method B
1. Open My Computer, right click on the blank area, open the properties and click on the device manager to open the device manager interface.
2. Take the phone’s battery out to make sure the power is off. Then connect it to your PC.
Tips: for some model with built-in battery, there is no need to take out the battery just need to make sure that the phone is power off.

You can see the sign devicedriver software is installing at the bottom right corner.

Hi, I have the same problem like JohnOReilly. Since the last OTA Update my p8000 ist trapped in a bootloop. If I conect the phone to PC I hear a "connected-sound" and it appears for 3 seconds in the device manager, than I hear a disconnected sound and it's gone. What can I do?

When I click onto "Driver download: https://mega.co.nz/#!55BQkKiR!OPBrnj7SXxsUbuchAjV8orT9SMAOMpbDesYTMO2DDHY", Mega asks for an encryption key to enter. Can you fix this, please?

Now it says: PMT changed for the ROM; it must be downloaded.

Select "Firmware Upgrade" instead of "Download Only" this time. Do full backup first because this will format your phone.

Figured it out. I preinstalled the driver using dpinst.exe.
After that, the VCOM Port only was visible in device manager as hidden (view->enable hidden devices)
It was bothered by the fact that the COM port is not visible, only for like 5 seconds after plugin.

When I click download and insert battery nothing happens

You click Download then connect it to PC without a battery. You instert battery back when flashing process is done.

Good tutorial.  Thank you.

A few little points.

1) Make sure phone is OFF.

2) If phone doesn't start to download then remove battery and replace it back in.

3) Make sure phone is fully charged.

Great tutorial but some remarks however (correct me if I am wrong).

At the end of step 4 you push download. Then it should be (this way I installed my custom recovery):
Pull the battery out of the Elephone and connect the Elephone thru USB cable (so without battery).
You will hear in Windows that the Elephone is attached and when the drivers are properly installed (see first steps) you will see the progressbar works and SPFT installs the ROM. When its finished the green Download OK appears. Then disconnect the phone from USB and put in the battery again to startup the phone.
