One Click Rooting, Screenshots and Free Wifi Tethering for the Droid

I previously wrote about how to root the Droid, but since then, there have been updates to the Android operating system, which would require you to install updates, which may have caused the Droid to be unrooted or simply a new phone which was not rooted back then.
