Hum. The prerequisite for 3.2.3.2 is new; I flashed an older version of twrp directly from 13.1.0. You can find 3.2.3.2 here (Thor/Apollo). I have not flashed these updates myself and don't have MD5s for validation. Use at your own risk. Once installed you will need to root and re-establish OTA blocking. Make sure WiFi is disabled prior to upgrading. Standard caution: flashing roms (or any other component) is dangerous and can lead to a permanent brick. Make sure you are 100% comfortable with each step before continuing.

Thank you so much, I'd started giving up hope of finding it... Probably improved my XDA search skills a bit

Hey, wanted to update just in case you were curious. Actually made it to CM12 with your help. I love my new tablet, so nice to wave goodbye to the Amazon stuff. I keep eyeballing unlocking my bootloader and installing CM12 but I think I'd better hedge my bets and keep it safe. The bootloader unlock procedure looks pretty intimidating to me. Is there a simple tool out there to do it?

Hey Taylooor, thanks for posting back; glad you made it to CM11 without serious incident. Throw in Xposed framework and a few modules like GravityBox and you have many of the most desirable CM12 features. Not all tweaks work on CM11 as GravityBox and similar tools were designed for AOSP unless otherwise specified.

The bootloader unlock procedure is actually pretty easy (and not especially risky) once you understand the required steps and have assembled all the necessary pieces. Hurdles include deciphering instructions, deciding which approach/tool to use (there are several) and dealing with host driver issues - especially on Windows. Those barriers are slowly flattening as more people share their experiences and problem resolutions. While I don't think there will ever be a 'one click' tool you might benefit by waiting a bit as someone is bound write up a streamlined guide.
