    I have a Wii u with cfw and plan to give it to my nephew. but I just remembered it is linked to my nnid is there a way I can unlink my nnid without risking a console brick and add his nnid instead whilst keeping the cfw and games on the system?

    The only way i think you can unlink the nnid from the console is formatting it.

    I'm unaware of any tools that will remove your NNID without formatting the system. Unless I'm wrong, you have two options:
    • Leave the NNID and the games.
    • Remove the NNID and the games.
    You could remove the NNID and reinstall the important games.

    Oh ok thank you so that would mean I would have to format then use his nnid and get the guy who put the few on my Wii u to do it again with my nephews nnid attached.

    If I did that would I have to go through the tedious process of reinstalling all the games again? or would they work from the usb hdd they are already installed to?

    You would have to reinstall the games.

    Just thought would it brick the Wii u if I was to just do a system wipe since it is currently on cfw with the coldboot or would it be ok?

    You should uninstall CBHC before doing a system format.
