Could someone post a youtube video of the step by step process for root, custom recovery and custom  ...

AFAIK, there is no video specific to Ulefone Metal, you can google yourself and find a number of guides and YouTube videos how to flash a ROM or recovery by SP Tools (for any phone or tablet based on Mediatek chipset), or how to use TWRP (no matter for which phone or tablet), etc.

To save your time, just read carefully an excellent guide about flashing TWRP to Ulefone Metal (installation of drivers, operating SP Flash Tool, links with all resources to download):
http://www.gizbeat.com/10733/ule ... ulefone-metal-root/

It doesn't need to be TWRP recovery from GizBeat, you will flash exactly the same way any other TWRP (like Jonny's, as needed for MAD Nougat). Same procedure (drivers, SP Flash Tool) applies also for flashing all Ulefone ROMs, see the attached screenshot from SP Flash Tools and compare it to the screenshot from GizBeat on flashing the TWRP.

Installation of drivers for Windows 7 should go straightforward (please carefully read GizBeat guide how to disable signatures). Some people might have had problems with installation of drivers to Windows 10, please search trough the Forum and/or google around - this is a generic procedure and the same generic problems and solutions are applicable to all Mediatek based devices. If you need to uninstall a failed driver, use USBDeview from:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html

Whatever you flash (TWRP or for 'upgrading/downgrading' through Ulefone ROMs), you must always select Donload Only mode in the SP Flash Tool. To start flashing, press on Download, and only then connect the switched off phone by USB cable. Disconnect the phone from USB and turn it on only upon the flashing is finished.

You may find some older guides describing that battery must be removed before flashing - forget, this was applicable to the older generations of Mediatek processors (besides, battery is not removable on Ulefone Metal).

Cooked ROMs won't be installed through SP Flash Tool, but through TWRP (which is easier, but you must first flash the TWRP anyway). You can also overwrite TWRP by another recovery (another version of TWRP or for going back to the stock recovery) directly from TWRP (by installing its appropriate ZIP or IMG), or you can also do it via Flashify or Rash applications (root required), as available from Google Play.

For rooting, you must also first flash the TWRP, to install then SuperSU ZIP from TWRP.

There were several threads on this Forum about the installation of TWRP and rooting, see e.g. (but everything is already explained above):
http://forum.ulefone.com/thread-152-1-1.html

URLs to download various ROMs are provided in the first post in this thread. For further hints and useful tools you may need for easier and safer switching through the firmwares, see:

Is it possible to install an official ROM via TWRP? If so, where do we find the ZIP file?

What can we mark to not access the internet in AFWall + in ULEFONE Metal in a way that does not disturb the development of the device?
