    I have a question. I have two NNID, I want to merge both into one (so system transfer one NNID console onto the other) since I would like to keep my NNID with my more common known ID. That NNID has only Pokemon X, Y, OR, AS, ACNL & ironfall. My other one has all my games and ironfall as well. I know that transferring from console A to console B merges everything and I just have to redownload the games, but, would anyone happen to know if I make a backup of all my digital games on console B, I can restore them once it's merged with A after they are redownloaded? Or will that not work due to possible checksum thingies? I have most of the games as physical cartridges I could restore to before system transferring but I'm talking more along the lines of my digital only games

    You can't do this. You might want to call Nintendo to see if they can do something. Another option is to pirate the games (not recommended).

    You can merge accounts, I just want to know if I can restore my saved backups after they're merged since they have to be redownloaded

    No. I'm asking if I backup my digital saves with save manager, save them to my desktop, then perform the system transfer and redownload my games; can I put the saves back onto my SD and use save manager to restore the save files

    EDIT: it seems my question is being read wrong.
    I have homebrew, I have save data manager and SDVT. Since the console I want to transfer the NNID name from only has 5 games, and I want to transfer it to my console that is my "main" with over 40+ games, I'm asking if I can back up those saves, then restore them after they are redownloaded after the system transfer

    Yeah then you should be able to restore it. Double check just in case.

    What I mean by double check is see if you can backup your digital save then restore it from the save manager without merging.

    See but that's why I'm asking about it. I read about some digital games having checksums changed or so each time you load it. These games would be erased and I would have to redownload them after the transfer is done, which is why I'm asking if it would be possible to restore after that or if it would become "corrupt" since I would have to redownload possibly changing the checksum or so

    Just saw your edit, I am silently hoping it does work but I guess I don't want to actually test it without some like solid answer lol

    You can do this without homebrew. I just did it. Just contact Nintendo at 1-800-255-3700.
