Okay, so I attempted this. My phone is opened right now as I speak. I held the tool, got a white screen, but the screen was on for 2 seconds, and then it booted into 4.4.2. I used the 4.1.2 i605.img file provided by the Original Poster of this thread.
Is it somehow possible that the bootloader was pre-unlocked from the i605.img and boots the 4.4.2 rom because it's not checking the signature? Or did it just fail and nothing has changed? I couldn't see any text, but then I couldn't see the screen all that well at the angle I was doing this at. I'd like to know what you think before i reassemble this phone.
I could reassemble and try to flash a recovery. If it boots custom recovery then I suppose i'm on a 4.1.2 bootloader. If not then I suppose it failed. Would like to know what you think of the white screen for 2 seconds. Do I need to try and keep the white screen on longer? I'm wondering if maybe the white screen was on from shorting but then slipped and it didn't finish? I have no idea.

Okay, I reassembled. Booted into 4.4.2. Flashed recovery. Then tried to boot into recovery. Got Verizon unauthorized error. Figured maybe signature problem Attempted to odin to 4.1.2. Same error. so I guess this method did not work on a 4.4.2 device. Only choice now is to odin back to 4.4.2.
