    I’ve got a Switch which Nintendo have banned. I’m wanting to sell the console however I don’t want my account on there showing that I’ve previously had my NIntendo ID linked to it. Is there a way or any tools to remove this?

    I gues on earth.
    if you are going to sell it, you are going to do a factory reset. That will remove it for sure.

    devmenu has a accounts tab. You can use it to delete the account. However if im not mistaken this would be the same thing as going into user settings and going to the very bottom and hitting delete user. That should delete all user data, including your nintendo account.

    The option right above that is unlink nintendo account as well, which may be what you are looking for.

    Just to note (from my experience) unlink wont work unless you are on an up to date firmware, if you are on a lower firmware (like me being on 3.0.2) it will ask you to update before you can proceed.

    Unfortunately when you need to do a factory reset you need to have access to the internet. It must authenticate to Nintendo servers first and then it allows you to unlink the account.

    I will take a look at this shortly and see what I can do

    Your switch is console banned and you're trying to sell it? I hope the buyer is aware of it.

    Yes. Recovery mode doesn’t allow you to factory reset unfortunately

    I tell a lie. I've just re-checked. I've managed to set it back to factory defaults removing the user from the Switch! - Kubas - thanks. I wasn't doubting you. I merely read about it. Close Thread!

    Hi Canna,

    No I am not scamming anyone. I've put it up in the following link.

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/nintendo-switch-for-sale.514248/

    Reason for selling is I quite like Online play and I wasn't aware it was even being used on the internet. - oh and just noticed your signature. Sounds to me like your trying to Scam people via PayPal ;)

    Having that apostrophe in "a lot" is triggering my ocd and making me twitch out.

    If you sell it hacked, you can probably ask more then $300 (and warn the buyer that it is banned).

    You should tell that to yourself in the fist place!
    So entitled when serving and so stingy when served... talk about double standards.

    Hi again, I made this thread as I had an issue and I’ve managed to resolve it thanks to members here.

    Canna - I know this forum is full of people expressing their own opinions and i take yours onboard, However telling me that i possibly might be scamming people could also be seen as a bit misleading which I don’t want anyone to think that of me. I’ve been completely honest with my post.

    Also to come on GBAtemp (which is free) and then add in your signature to earn profit from users. That’s what’s wrong. I’m not in charge of or have any power to this forum but I would have removed that.

    Anyway no beef

    Im not saying you are but if your selling a banned console on here then please just make them aware of the ban,

    As for the signature its a donation, yes its free on here and im not demanding if someone finds information usefull some like to say oh here look take this 1 dollar this 1 pound you helped me out..

    Like you ever told a begger not to sit there with a cup on the street..

    Anyway lets leave it there
