I've done both, but never had to take the master cylinder off... don't have my '07 any more, but there is a way to get your 17mm socket in there.
The video seems OK for Gen3.. but...
A little change of mindset also...... no need to remove the top shock bolt at all, but take your socket off it, which will allow the head to slip by ABS stuff if oriented accordingly. You only need to push the bolt out from the left side enough to disengage the shock... side benefit, you don't lose the spacer/bushing.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
