Prompt [Q] Trouble with Easy Ace

I've been trying to root my HTC using the Easy Ace Tool found in this thread. The process seems to have been at least partially successful.

Probably irrelevant but here is a little info:
Device is HTC Inspire 4G
Android 2.3.5
Sense 3.0
Build 3.20.502.63 710RD

I selected option 1 in Easy Ace

Code:
1.Root HTC Inspire 4G

   .Unlock Bootloader
   .Flash CWM
   .Install SU
Obtaining the token and unlock code went smoothly. The device rebooted. The process continued with the permanent root and failed.

Code:
Once your device is fully booted, make sure that usb debugging is enabled and ch
arge only set as default

* daemon started successfully *

Make sure that USB debugging is enabled and charge only is set as default

Bootloader after the first part of the process completed. This from a subsequent attempt after the unlock was completed.

I noticed that it said "fre3vo" could not be found. Another thread mentioned that antivirus will sometimes kill the file during the download. I was planing on switching vendors anyway so I uninstalled my antivirus software for the duration. Following a restart, I re-downloaded the tool. I then verified the hash and the presence of "fre3vo" in the tmp folder.

Hash verification.
File verification.

I still encountered the same error. I decided to try option 3.

Code:
  3. Flash CWM Touch Recovery
Despite an error, this seems to have worked.

When I manually reboot the phone into the bootloader and select recovery, it goes into clockwork.

So that's were I'm at. I feel like there is something tiny and stupid I'm overlooking that is causing the root to fail. Any suggestions or help is greatly appreciated. My end goal here is to install ICS 4.0.4.
