Any Devs want a take a shot at this?
I'm willing to test and also buy a device for a dev if we can get a custom recovery and ROM.

Thank you to Goayandi and his post here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/development/mediatek-mt8173-mt8176-development-t3791009
He was working with the Mi Pad 3 which has the same processor.

This should be doable, see also my post here

Unfortunately I don't have a Fire HD 10.

What is the difference between this firmware and the official one on the Amazon page?

How would you install the firmware? What do you use and how do you do it, in other words what are the steps to do an upgrade to the Firmware?
