    This is a theoretical question, just so i have a backup.

    If i extract the nnidsave.bin from one 3ds, can i inject that into another 3ds to transfer the NNID, or is there more than that?

    Or is it impossible?

    Thanks!

    The NNID is also linked to a specific console in Nintendo servers, so if you do that the system will trhow you a message that the NNID can"t be used in that system. If you want to transfer a NNID you can only do it trought System Transfer but the other system aren"t goign to be able to use that NNID anymore unless you System Transfer back to the original system but the other system won"t be able to use that NNID again.

    There is absolutely no way of transferring an nnid from one 3ds to another without a system transfer. The only way this could be possible is if somebody dumpedthe bootroms which is still being worked on. Though nnid's are really pointless nowadays anyway. Atleast on 3ds. A nand xorpad can recover all lost data and games if needed, and tikshop can install the tickets to all the eshop games you owned, so you can just re-install them and all dlc from the eshop. The only use recovering an nnid could provide is miiverse, and frankly making another one isnt a big deal.

    Well now saying I forget to note yo ucan also transfer a NNID to another console you own (it needs to be from the same region) if you contact Nintendo.
