There's a glitch on Miiverse to post any picture and it's chaos

Not entirely sure if this is thread worthy but it looks like Nintendo's worst nightmare just happened. Don't know the details myself but there's some kind of glitch in Mario & Luigi that is letting people post screenshots of any kind of picture on Miiverse right now and it's a disaster. Only a matter of time before the porn starts showing up.

"This only works without the update for the game. You open another game or application that can be suspended, then you launch Dream Team. Rapidly press the HOME button repeatedly so that you will return to the HOME Menu the second that the 3DS logo is gone. Then rapidly press the HOME button repeatedly again to go back to the game for a second and return to the HOME Menu. ---wait---

This will cause the game to display an image from your previous software (in this case the camera app), or just random colors. This is most likely due to some data from the previous software remaining in the RAM".

Open the camera app, then open the mario and luigi. But press Home really fast so it takes you to the home menu before the game starts. Then do the same, go to the game for a second but press it fast again. IT should show an image of the camera app or colors. Go in, chose the picture come to miiverse. Note, it wont work if you have updated it.

So does this mean Nintendo will remove Miiverse entirely like Swapnote?

I'm still pissed about that, the wounds run deep...

The shackles have been cast off, o my brothers. We can post anything we want.

It's time to finally spread the truth about what really happened to Gunpei Yokoi.

I don't get it. I thought you could always post a screenshot on miiverse?
You should only be able to take screenshots of actual games. Somehow they're able to take screenshots from the internet browser and post them which obviously opens up a giant window of possible abuse.

Swap note situation was a little different...
Well yes it was but the issue I think sprang from people being able to share images of any nature including porn and illegal images. I think we are all of 3 seconds away from that now.

Just from reading posts, it seems like this was already patched a loooong time ago as it only works with the unpatched version of the game. Guess nobody discovered it until now?

They will probably just disable screenshots in this game's community as it seems to be specific to it.

Welp. RIP Dream Team's community.

I assume Nintendo admins are on the case because there's nothing funny or adult on there. Just a few random piccies.

Can't believe you tricked me into looking at the Miiverse.

People only want to be assholes here because Nintendo tries to stop them from being assholes. If they werent so strict no one would even care to go through the effort of posting something controversial.

At least the 'problem' would be tiny.
