    So, i've been wondering about something and i present it here.

    As we know, we can install (or inject) .tik files to ticket.db, these tickets doesn't affect the NNID, but makes possible to download games directly from eshop... But what happens if a 3ds console with no NNID associated is, after install tickets, associated with a newly created NNID?.

    Here is what i'm testing, as when the NNID for 3ds was given, all titles and downloads from the console were given to this NNID.

    If this experiment was made before me, please share your results, i'm right now doing the crazyness of installing every ticket available for the 3ds since i last downloaded the files, but if i'm proved wrong then that's where the experiment ends.

    Of course i'm aware that the association with the console is server sided, but what would happen if you do a NNID and it inherits the tickets installed in the console?.

    Share your thoughts.

    EDIT: i think i'm in the wrong side, please move the theme if any mod looks at it. as this isn't relevant to flashcards nor CFW.

    I tried it. Installed two tik (good tiks, download worked perfect), then I tied in an NNID. Then I made a system transfer to a non-hacked N3DS (including the NNID), and I couldn't re-download any of the stuff within the tickets. So, no, it didn't work.

    I did it last week. So, can't share any screenshoot as I didn't plan to document the expriment. However, I was under the assumption it wouldn't work, for I tried the same with some Legit CIAs in the past, thinking they would link to the NNID, but they didn't.

    It seems actual "Legit" pre-installed games have something else that indeed ties them to an NNID once registered.

    i was actually, just finishing this experiment, i'll share my results anyway here. The fastest thing you could have done was to check the programs you could redownload from the options instead of transfering the system. i'll edit here when i check.

    Although. What would be the point? So, if they appear in the "redownloadable" list, that means they are really "linked" to the NNID?

    Yes, if by any reason the programs apear in the redownloadable list from the eshop then the games are linked to the NNID by some sort of reason, as the console has an NNID tied and new content was added to the list without a proof that it was bought. Anyways, i finished making an NNID for the Emunand i made, no ticket was tied to the fresh NNID i made as a dummy, the experiment is finished and there is no point in having this thread go any further on the topic.

    This thread can be Erased/Closed at will as it no longer serves any purpose

    So weird question is there a tool to remove specific tickets from the db? For example say I had installed a legit CIA but then I wanted to actually obtain is legit film the eshop how would I do this?

    Use the title id to find the ticket and delete it with FBIv2
