    I just went out and picked myself up one of them new 2dsxl's and i was following the 3dsguide page and doing everything as instructed and got to the part where ive to do the transfer process.

    but as i was starting i realised ive never used a Nintendo id before and the Source old2DS i got which i installed CFW on it originally has someone elses Nintendo id on it :/

    so im stuck now as i dont know how to remove there ID

    is it safe to Format sytem memory while CFW is installed if so will i loose my CFW what do i need to do in order to put my own Nintendo id( which i do have BTW) onto my Source 2DS so i can start the 3DS guide again from scratch.

    Cheers guys any help is much appreciated.

    Format the source console and buy the game again and inject the save etc. You won't lose CFW.

    You'll need to follow https://3ds.guide/finalizing-setup again except probably not the part about moving boot.firm to CTR-NAND as that will stay.
