If you're referring to my blog post at thomasaka.com that you linked to below, it is not fake at all. Nor does it destroy anything. It simply puts all the instructions and files from THIS SITE in 1 place to make it easier and faster to fix. I posted it so I could find it easily in the future (which I've done multiple times) and so others wouldn't have to spend as much time as I did searching for the solution.
If you (or anyone else) had a problem with it please let me know and I'll see if I posted something wrong. As far as I know it's all correct as I've used it several times myself. Please also note I've not tried that fix on the most recent version of Ubuntu so it's possible that it doesn't work for it.
