    As title says, i need to format my 3ds because i need to unlink the nnid from it, if i format the 3ds i will lose the game in my sd (Some legit cia as mh4u are on it) or simply remove the sd before the format will save everything?

    You don't wanna know. :P
    2 questions, as well:

    - Are you formatting system memory on EmuNAND? If you are, you can't take out your SD... sorry.
    - Are you on 2 SD Cards on with the same NNID? I tried formatting system on one of them, and on the other, when I connect with the NNID, it gives out an error. :(

    You can try:

    -On Sysnand-
    Formatting on Sysnand should unlink the emunand and sysnand, removes the NNID also but i think your Savegames for the legit cia┬┤s are gone :(

    Just to be sure, backup your sysnand via Gateway. For safety backup your emunand also.
    Now remove the SD-Card and format the 3DS on Sysnand.
    Insert the SD-Card back and look if your savagames are there and you are unlinked, if not, restore your currently backuped sysnand via gateway to restore your saves also.

    -on Emunand-
