Hi, I was wondering if you can root M8 by just installing the appropriate zip via booted custom recovery or do you need to flash custom recovery for this to work? I was just hoping to keep the phone as stock as possible for a while (getting the phone tomorrow I hope).

Ok to install a supersu zip you got to have a custom recovery. It won't work with stock recovery. After you flashed and updated it, you could flash a stock recovery again and will nevertheless sta rooted.

You might get away with that, yeah.

You might also want to install the kernel module that makes system partition writable.
