So, I have gotten my self into quite a pickle. My Nintendo account was banned, and after calling they helped me make a new account and transfer all of my purchases over to the new one, and they deleted my old banned one. But now, even though the old one is deleted it’s still linked to the user that has all of my game data on it. I need to find a way to unlink my deleted account so I can link the new one. I am willing to do anything to fix this damn mess, I don’t care if I have to homebrew my switch, I don’t care if I have to find a way to transfer my game data over, I am going to solve this issue no matter what it takes. The image is the error I get when I try to do something online for example open the eshop

you can force unlink a nnid using goldleaf, but the smarter and safer method (since you plan on going online) is to backup all your saves on that profile, then apply them to a different profile. both methods entail risk (using homebrew on a online nand) but save restoring is far less intrusive than force removing a nnid ( which is why its typically only used for offline emunands), and hardly anyone, if anyone has ever gotten banned for simply save restoring (outside of ACNH).

I have acually been active in that thread but multiple people have been telling me to call Nintendo, just go look in the thread
Ayup. The issue is that he wants to recover game saves (possible) and friends (impossible as far as I know) from a deleted account. This is all on a stock switch that’s never been hacked.

if you can figure it out @impeeza ..you da man.

Login to your account on nintendos website and unlink it there. You probably could use linkalho or goldleaf to do it but I'm not sure if it would register on nintendos end of things

Buddy, as far I know you are completely right, recover lost friends no possible and, on a no hacked console you can´t do much.

It’s not gonna work, like I said the account is deleted so it does not exist anymore but brain dead Nintendo thinks it still exists and is linked to my user. I’m really new to this and I haven’t even home brewed my switch so I kinda need stuff dumbed down sorry
