As per thread title we are able to root our GioneeP5W and Install Philz Recovery which is CWM Based.

Recovery : Philz CWM-based Recovery v6.0.5.1

Few things to be noted here :
- This guide is only meant for GioneeP5W
- The zip contain GioneeP5W firmware files
- Flashing on another device may cause Bootloop or Hardbrick

About :
This is the Philz Recovery CWM Based Developed by Havotek. The original recovery is in *.bin format unpacking such type of format is a bit tedious task. So i some how able to extract recovery from my device(Without Root) in *.img format. The recovery you are going to use in your Gionee P5W is edited by me and is Sp flash tool flashable due to image extention. If you want to flash *.bin format files into your device use Mircale Toolbox. This recovery is modified and after flashing it with Sp Flash tool you have to Root your device in a single instance (after flashing recovery, reboot into recovery and Install This new recovery root your device and does not interfere with System Security against Root. This means after Rooting, device still thinks that it is Unrooted and Secure. System doesn't warn you against root and doesn't provide an OTA Update repair. It doesn't break normal OTA Update functionality. In System Manager app you can see their is no RED Tringale icon which holds "Rooted" Text inside it. For more info check Screencaptures, attached below.
