possible to root Amazon Fire HD 10 5th gen running Fire OS

I've come across this device and figure it'd make a very nice information display. But after searching this forum and reading tons of posts I am uncertain whether or not it's possible to root this device, root this OS version, or (if needed in order to root) downgrade this OS version. Most success stories here appear to refer to the Fire HD 7 5th gen, I think.

I've disabled wifi on the device so that it can't install any more system updates. Has anyone tried KingRoot with this one? Their support list doesn't mention Amazon devices. I suppose I could just try it and hope nothing gets bricked. I'm happy to try other methods if they'll work.
