    Hey guys I have a really stupid NNID that is linked to my Wii U (I didn't confirm the e-mail, so it's not fully done). Let's just say that it is a really blatant, immature drug reference. I REALLY don't want family to see this, lol. I tried to contact Nintendo, but they pretty much gave me the finger. There isn`t a way to get rid of this NNID without wiping the wii u clean, sadly.

    Can I backup my save files through Saviine, wipe my wii u clean, then re-inject the save states back into my wii u? I have lots of progress on Bayo 1 + 2, Mario 3d world, Wind Waker, etc. I`d rather not lose it, so any help would be appreciated!

    Currently on 5.5.1. I want to do this before Nintendo releases an update, so if anyone could help me it would be appreciated!

    Thank-you :grog::grog:

    You can use saviine but why not just change the nnid confirm email? Also any downloaded games will be lost

    Why not create a second account, then delete the first one?

    It's not the e-mail that's bad, it's the name. I tried to remove it with no success. I have no downloadable games, just precious save data.

    Save data is tied to an account, so creating another one will not work. I just don't know if the saviine injects from this account will work if I re-inject them after wiping the wii u.

    I believe people were sharing Super Mario Maker levels across consoles/NNIDs by extracting and injecting saves?

    Hmm OK. This looks good, I will try to see it works. I'll try tomorrow after there's time. I will report back to tell the tale! Hopefully it goes OK:yayu::yayu: I am not sure if mario, bayo, or wind waker use mii related data... I never did any online play, so maybe I'm safe. We'll see! Thanks guys :grog:

    OK, so I did it last night, and it worked perfectly! I backed up the saves, wiped the console clean, and restored the saves without any problems! Thank-you guys! Nintendo really needs to pull themselves together. It was only because of these hombrews that I was able to restore all of my progress! :wub::wub::yayu::yayu:
