No custom ROM even.

Let me clarify:

This "utility" just gives you root access. It does not flash any ROMs or Radios or SPLs or recovery images. It just injects the app that will allow you to flash a new recovery, at your leisure.

Simply put, root access just means the ability to access functions locked out to a normal user access. This includes write abilities of all folders, flashing new partitions, etc etc.

For the sake of now, root access will only be good for you if you are going to flash a new recovery image, so that you can flash a new SPL / RADIO / ROM.
