Door number 1... fine tuning.

After you tune your guitar up. You lock the bridge. That act of locking will pull the strings out of tune (either sharp or flat). The fine tuners are there to bring the locked strings back into tune.

Also over a long period of time, your stings will move out of tune slightly due to various factors such as environment, temperature, settling of strings etc etc. The fine tuners allow you to make minute adjustments without unlocking the locking nuts (which will affect the tuning even more).

s'ok...

there is a lot of misinformation out there on the interwebz...

you'll need The Tool to adjust the intonation on a Flyod Rose (not sure if it'll work on a licensed tho). I'm not sure how the screw driver method works tho.
