    First of all, yes i already read this: https://github.com/Plailect/Guide/wiki/DSiWare-Downgrade

    So, i got a o3ds non xl, running rednand with luma, due to having only a 2gb sd card and cant dump the nand lol so ill stick with renand and later ill switch to arm9lhx, my friends its running a o3ds on version 11, and im about to make the DSi Downgrade, now here are my questions:

    The O3DS With Rednand has the NNID #1, With No Games at all, so im about to transfer it to the second o3ds running the firmware 11, once this its done im downgrading it, and formatting it.

    Is there a problem if im running a Rednand, instead of the normal Emunand or Arm9lhx? don't quite think so, but is better to ask.

    Can i normally link again my NNID account and redownload field runners normally?
    i have been reading comments on people that have issue slinking their NNID after the system transfer.

    Once i complete the softmod, and if possible download the game again, i have to wait a week to use the same account to perform another system transfer, right?

    Can i use the same account? or do i need to buy the game again using another NNID?

    Thats about it!

    I can only answer question one, but its ok if your using rednand. It is advised you use a9lh, as you will be needing to use godmode9, which if you do anything wrong in, you have a chance to brick. A9lh is just advised, as you can recover from a brick. But as long as you have a way to access godmode9 and are REALLY careful, you can get away with not using a9lh

    The only way to relink the NNID on device #1 is either:
    1) Wait 1 week and then system transfer from device #2 (which should have a9lh installed already if you completed the guide) back to device #1.

    2) email or call Nintendo and make up some sob story about why you need to relink your NNID

    Remember that system-formatting device #2 only unlinks the device from your NNID locally, but not on Nintendo's server side.

    So you'll technically only need to buy the dsiware game once, but you'd have to do one of the two methods above to get it back on device #1.

    Probably not my place to ask but just important to share. Why shouldn't one just use nand back up? Most people would think to do that but would that be a problem?

    Using a NAND backup is the standard way to revert the system after a DSiWare Transfer.

    AFTER you get a9lh running on sys #2, dump the NNIDSAVE.bin, and zero it out using a hex editor.
    Inject it to sys #2, then log in to the eShop on sys #2.


    Then you can just use the NAND backup on sys #1 and everything will be normal.

    Yeah i asked cause i felt it need to be mentioned since i bet many people thought to do that after seeing each transfer is limited to once per week. But I guess it would be a safer way to prevent any serious problems since is not as easy as system transfer. But i doubt anyone would wanna wait a week to do that so is a matter of preference.

    According to that guy. Yes. If you know what to do about it. :P

    Personally i never used the dsiware downgrade, even though i have the option for it. I have 2 other 3ds systems with a9lh already and is not a priority to me. Since I need more SD cards anyway.
