1. Superuser
Grant and manage Superuser rights for your phone. This app requires that you already have root, or a custom recovery image to work. Note: App and binary will have different versions. The app is updated more often than the binary is. Install fixed for CM6 Stable If install fails, check http://bit.ly/su2xx for a solution

2. SetCPU for Root Users
SetCPU changes the CPU settings (capable of overclock and underclock) on a rooted Motorola Droid, Nexus One, G1, Magic, or one of many other devices to improve performance or save battery. Have an Evo/Incredible/Desire/Slide with a stock kernel? Press Menu > Disable Perflock. Galaxy S devices: use conservative scaling.

3. Root Explorer (File Manager)
Root Explorer is the ultimate file manager for root users. Access the whole of android's file system (including the elusive data folder!). SQLite database viewer, Text Editor, create/extract zips, multi-select, execute scripts, search, remount, permissions, bookmarks, email, thumbnails, APK binary XML viewer.

4. Apk Uploader for root
Easily backup and restore your apps using your personal FTP server directly from your phone. Requires a rooted phone with busybox. Works with Android 2.2 (Froyo). Fixed Background Transfer not correctly killing itself.

5. Titanium Backup ★ root

7. Remote Wipe for root users
Remotely wipe by SMS message all your data (factory reset) and all files saved on the SD card. Useful if you lose your device and have sensitive info on it. When configuring answer "Always allow" to the Superuser req, or a wipe request will ask for permission again. *IF YOU WANT TO TRY IT MAKE A BACKUP FIRST (OF SD TOO)*

8. Terminal Emulator
This is the Term app written by Google. This application allows you to pull up the Linux command line on your phone. The source can be found in the Android git tree. Please see source.android.com for more information.

Download Terminal Emulator, type the command su
If you got permission denied, that means your Android is not rooted.

How could you include Barnacle instead of "Wireless Tether for Root Users"? That's a miss, IMO.

Your list needs work. No drocap, shootme, busybox, adfree, Titanium Backup or ROM manager.
