Universal 1-Click Root
There have been a large number of rooting applications lately. One of the most recent ones is pointed out by XDA member ctbear. In the discussion thread, he posts an app that is used to root many of the most current Android devices, including but not limited to: Droid X, Nexus One, Milestone, and many more. The dev also provides a list of the devices that this tool is not compatible with, so make sure that your device falls under the right list or you may end up damaging your device.

Seems to support 1-click unroot as well…I haven’t tried it though
All credits go to the developer!
You can find more information in the application thread.
