    In my house.
    First of all, I know this is about rooting, and specific to the Dream, but I am posting it here instead because of my concern for it as a general Android _security_ issue.

    I have recently been seeing a post in the comments sections of many blogs and on twitter about this great, new, "easy" way to root a Dream. The link goes to a site with a photo of a dream and tells you to just follow the steps. The post is as follows:

    Now, the reason I am suspicious is because every time I have seen this posted, it is almost always exactly the same, verbatim, but is always posted by a different "person".

    I have received this "comment" repeatedly at my own blog, where it has been submitted to many different posts. In each case I have deleted it.

    The nature of the post, the text always being the same, but by different "people" makes it look like spam, so I am concerned about the actual content of that site.

    Has anyone else looked at this? Can we confirm if it is real, or a scam?
