To install TWRP

Your PC must have ADB & fastboot installed and configured. For quick installation try 15 Second ADB installer http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=48915118#post48915118
Now connect your device to your PC and goto twrp folder and press and hold shift then right click on white space and "Open command window here".
Now type following commands at command prompt.

"adb reboot bootloader" - to boot your device into bootloader.
after booting into bootloader type "fastboot flash recovery twrp-2.8.x.x-xxx.img" - this will flash TWRP recovery on your Gionee Elife E8.
"fastboot reboot" - to reboot your device.
After reboot type "adb reboot recovery" - to boot into recovery mode.

To root the device

Put Super Su in the root of your internal storage.
In TWRP from your device install/flash UPDATE-SuperSU-vX.XX.zip

Congratualtions, you have successfully rooted your device and installed TWRP.
