Official user manual from Traveltek here (too large to upload)
Recovery mode was somewhat difficult to figure out. The volume buttons do not move the highlight; instead, slide a finger up/down on the "No command" message to move the highlight down/up. Pressing the power button or touching around the "No command" message will choose the highlighted option. Figuring this out took lots of trial and error.
The bootloader seems to be unlocked by default.
I was able to root the device by using Lannig's "utoo-root-signed.zip" file that can be found here.

Don't forget to thank Lannig. This download was blocked by Google Chrome as a malicious file, but all scans came up negative on the .zip and its contents.

I have not found any custom ROMs written specifically for this tablet.
