Well, that statement is factually incorrect. First, take out SD card, then clear data for smart actions in system settings>apps>all. Then run the exploit, #3 in the RAZR utility. Upon the first reboot, If you hold down pwr, vol up, vol down at the same time, then select BP only. Finally, continue to follow the steps listed in the exploit. You will be rooted.
So, in summary:
The Droid RAZR Utility's root exploit WILL work if you "BP only" in the middle of the first boot. This is the fastest way to root your phone after the NEW 98.72.165 update.
