Calibre with Modded Kindle Fire

I am running a lightly modified version of Android Jelly Bean on a first gen Kindle Fire. What is the best way to use Calibre with it? When I plug it in, it auto detects it as a Kindle Fire, but this will not allow me to send my epubs over because it says it can't find a suitable format. Is there anyway to force Calibre to see it as a generic Android device instead of a Fire?

You can send any format you want to the Kindle Fire. Go to Preferences - Plugins - Device Interface plugin - Kindle Fire and customize the plugin. Check the epub format then highlight ePub and move it to the top so it is the first choice to be sent to this device.
