    So, apparently the Save Manager can export save data from an app called Nintendo Network ID Settings.
    I was wondering if this could intentionally be abused, say someone were to be dumb enough to make a dump and actually distribute it.

    If someone were to get their hands on it and restore it on their 3DS would there be any possibility in someone robbing their NNID?

    I ask this because, if it's in any way possible people should be careful about it.

    Backup your nnid settings, I will test it out for you ;)

    But seriously I wouldn't mess with anything NNID. Im pretty sure they check every byte of it.

    It seems the 3ds checks the NNID against their records when you connect. But the way the NNID is implemented currently it only has negative consequences for owners. This is why I hate when Nintendo reps always say to make a NNID. Of course there are positives that come with it so only use a NNID if its absolutely neccessary.

    The save is stored in the nand, which save_manager/svdt cannot access.
