The key was in the timing, but I did it yesterday for like 3 or 4 minutes and they came out pretty good. So you can tinker with them a few times and see. The steam make the eggs cook better and more uniformly if you boil more than one.
    There are many different methods for boiling eggs.

    I pierce the round end with the tip of a metal roast thermometer, then drop them into already boiling water with the timer set for 14 minutes. When the timer goes off, I immediately immerse them in cold water and bash the pierced end, then peel. If I wanted them so the whites were cooked but the yolks were just starting to cook, that would be 8 minutes, 7 if I want the yolks runny. I have never liked translucent/transparent egg whites, so that's as low as I have gone. And since now I am finding I am sensitive to egg whites, I don't soft boil eggs any more.

    No matter how you cook them, use a timer and a consistent method to get a consistent result.

    To get mine a little soft not runny, I just boil some water first. Then put the eggs in for 10 minutes exactly. Take the pot and run it under card water for 1 minute. Then crack and eat.
