    I’m about to hack my newly acquired New 2DS XL which will join my Pokémon N3DS and Super Famicom N3DS XL as my third hacked unit.

    Anyways, my question is this:

    I was able to buy Sudoku on my source 3DS. I don’t have a Nintendo Network ID on either of my hacked units. Didn’t need one to buy the game. There’s a point in the guide where you either have to do a transfer back after a week, Call Nintendo, or delete your NNID. My question is that since I don’t have one, can I just skip that part or would I absolutely need a NNID for a System Transfer?

    The guide said that you need it, so you need it.

    You don't need it. If neither system has an NNID, you can still transfer.

    One is for 'new' consoles, the other for 'old' consoles. The N2DSXL is a 'new' console. If you read the guide it should tell you what to be using.

    If you want to transfer your purchased content back you would need to wait a week, calling Nintendo to transfer your NNID is just a method to move your purchased content back without waiting a week, but when you don't have a NNID you lose that option since the content is only tied to the console, and not to an account.

    weird, I backuped my sysnand with LUMA3DS on my new 2DS XL and I've got the following file NEG42091462_sysnand_000.bin instead of a file name as mentionned in the tuto : <serialnumber>_nandmin_###.bin
    normal ?

    So, I'd be good then? Since I don't care about having the game back

    Yeah, it doesn't really matter.
