Exclamation [Q] Soft brick first gen

Basically in was trying to install what I thought was a ROM, but was really an updater, and bricked my kindle (it was mislabeled) . TWRP works but i have no ROM/backup (Had no space fora backup on the sdcard at the time, my data part. was huge and I didn't think to a factory reset). Can I copy a ROM to the sdcard through TWRP on a first gen Kindle Fire from my PC (Win 8)?

if you mounted, you can drag and drop or copy and paste.
