Just wanted to chime in and say that it worked fine for me on the second try. I did it two days ago and couldn't be happier. There have been zero hiccups. The guys that figure this stuff out are pure geniuses. If my palms weren't so sweaty when I did it I might have been able to do a video of the procedure. It's all about making sure that you get a good contact when using the wire (I used a paperclip and electrical tape because it was very stable).
Good luck to all that haven't tried this yet. You can do it!
Update: I should also mention that when I did the procedure I was running MeanROM 4.2, using Windows 7 and I do have HTC Sync and iTunes installed. After failing the first time I right-clicked and closed HTC Sync. I don't know if it was that or the timing but all was good the second time around. The point here is that I didn't do any extra work of uninstalling software on my computer or installing a different ROM on my phone.
