    Hi, in a last ditch effort to recover my NNID, I'm curious if there is a way to recover a nnid password the eshop uses to automatically log in? Thanks in advance

    I don't know, but I'd like to know the answer too just out of curiosity.
    There's about a 50/50 chance that it's possible with CFW. It depends on whether they store the password or just use a login token. Normally auto-login ("Keep me logged in", "Remember me" and that sort of thing) only stores a login token these days as it's far more secure. But Nintendo are not known for being very good with security, so you may be in luck.
    Have you tried calling them? I hear their support is pretty good and as long as you know some of the personal details of the account so they can identify you, they could probably help you get the password reset.

    Thanks for the reply. I am currently on the newest luma with b9s and that would be great if it wasnt stored as a ticket. I thought about giving them a call but unfortunatly all I have is the current info stored on the 3ds and no way to access the email associated with the nnid. I will give it a try though.
