Wow, alot, right? (just kidding)
o`-_____________How To_______[HOW]______-`o
First of all, there are TWO ways of doing this. One way is with an Action Replay DS.
That will give you a bigger debug screen. There is another way without an AR DS. This
doesn't have much on the screen. (Please read the next section for more things on the
Debug Mode.) I am not responsible for anything that happens. I never get damage to my game, I like doing it over and over and over, and nothing has happened.
2a. With Action Replay DS [AR]
Power on your DS and put in New SMB at the AR screen. Pick alot of codes (alot)
so it could freeze the game. If you would like to know the codes I selected, here they are: 

Must be On
99 coins
Freeze Time
Infinite Lives
Always Big Mario
Luigi's Voice
Big Jumps
Open All Worlds
   -Start Each Level as Big Mario
Always Have Item Codes:
   -Press R or L Button to Cycle Through Power-Ups

Load up NSMB and go into the Minigame Section and pick
a minigame to play. Touch the score board as if you want to play. The game will freeze with a white screen. Then, press a combination of buttons:
Hold L+R+A+LEFT let go, hold B+DOWN let go, hold START+SELECT let go. The debug screen
should come up if done correctly.
2b. Without Action Replay DS [NO]
Power on the DS and go into the game. At the screen where to pick Game, Minigames, or options, take out the Game Card and press the SAME combination. A smaller version of the
Debug Screen should appear.
o`-_____________Purposes and Other Things_______[PUR]______-`o
There are actually no purposes for this glitch, just for programmers to see stuff in the game. And, no, you cannot change options like in the Super Smash Bros. Melee for the NGC. This is a just for fun glitch and you cannot return to the game once you have done this. (That doesn't mean it will stick to the screen forever!) Now, what I am told is that Nintendo released newer versions of NSMB that cleared out the Debug Mode, but I do not know if this is true. I am not talking about Mario Kart DS, by the way.
