    A friend of mine is buying the Galaxy style new3ds which, after some research, will most likely come on 11.1. Following the Plailect guide, can I backup and format the modded o3DS and make a dummy account to use? And after the transfer, recover my old account?
    Thanks

    No matter what, the nnid is transferred in the process. Every single nnid that has been assigned to that 3ds will be transferred server side, so even if you back it up, there is absolutely no way of getting it back, besides calling nintendo, which in most cases onlh temporarily gives you your account back so you can redownload your games. Miiverse is the only thing really effected by this though with tikshop being a thing

    You can also wait 7 days and then get your account back, using the transfer again, but this time from your friend's 3ds as the Source, and yours as the Target.

    I don't think you can transfer from a n3ds to an o3ds.

    I have done the DSiWare downgrade four times now, and all I really do is when I finish setting up both 3ds's, I use tiny format to wipe the 3ds's. Then I can just go into settings and link my NNID back to the appropriate 3ds. I have had no problems doing it this way if it helps.
