You are correct, it's a first generation Fire, so I think that means ADB is enabled by default. I will now follow the steps to root the original KF & see how that goes. At least now I know which sub-forum to look in for help.
Btw, I actually found confirmation over at Amazon's Kindle Fire forum - "Kindle Fire - Which do I have?" One of the answers gave this very helpful info:
Kindle Fire HD 8.9" Version: 8.x.x
Kindle Fire HD 7" Version: 7.x.x
Kindle Fire (2nd Generation) Version: 10.x.x
Kindle Fire (1st Generation) Version: 6.x.x
Kindle Paperwhite Version: 5.x.x
Kindle Version: 4.x.x
Kindle Touch 5.x.x
Kindle Keyboard Version: 3.x
Kindle (2nd Generation) and Kindle DX Version: 2.x
Kindle (1st Generation) Version: 1.x
