Recently I got my hands on Xiaomi Mi3 and since then I'm testing the device from all possible aspects. Today while using the device, I found a bug which made all the photos uploaded to Instagram black. I'm not sure if this is a bug in the phone OS or an Instagram bug, whatever. A few minutes of tinkering with device and a little bit of research on forums, finally I found a way to fix this issue. Today I will teach you how to fix it on your device, I feel this method should work on all devices which are showing black photos when uploaded on Instagram. 

I'm going to make this is quick tutorial guide, so instead of going into a long technical theory on why this happens, I will skip this article on the Tutorial part for fixing this issue. Lets begin.
