How "Hackable" is Flipnote Studio 3d?

    I'm no hacker, and someone is probably gonna say everything I say in this post is impossible after the first few minutes of this being up, but Flipnote Studio just really seems "hackable" to me.

    I can think of two logical ways FS 3d might be used as an exploit (if it's possible)

    1. A primary exploit using the Nintendo DSI library that might/would be triggered by either changing the system's DNS before loading it, or by searching a special hacked Flipnote Studio ID. (Sort of like browserhax)

    2. A secondary exploit where an already hacked 3ds wirelessly transfers a hacked flipnote file that when opened on the second 3ds, would open the Homebrew Launcher.

    These might be complete bs, but these seem possible to me, and I don't think a FS 3d exploit has been made yet. How ridiculous is this?

    A lot. cause first, to expoit something, you need to make the 3ds crash. if the app ever made the 3ds crash, it MAY be possible to hack it.

    These sound plausible, however you won't know unless you try it. I assume you have no knowledge of exploits so these probably won't happen.

    No. Don't tell people this. Seriously. This is the sort of thinking that gets others to think "I got it to crash, it can be exploited", when in 98 percent of cases, it's not possible.

    1: If it uses DSi functionality then this would solely lie in TWL, which wouldn't give us a primary exploit.

    2: I imagine that there are sanitization checks in place, but then we'd need a malformed note to test this.
