    Apologies if this has been asked a million times. I have read several threads on this and I am still unclear. Possibly because some of them have old info.

    Here is what Step 2 of Section VI currently says:


    My main question:

    Is one of the two 3DSs going to permanently lose its ability to have a NNID?


    My plan:

    I want the NNID back on 3ds #1 so that in 2 weeks I can do this again, using 3ds #1 and another 11.1 3ds. So in 1 week, after doing the full A9LH guide on 3ds #2, I am going to do "System Transfer from 3DS #2 back to 3DS #1".

    But, again, my question is. After doing that will 3DS #2 lose the ability to have a NNID ever again? Or, after doing that, do I simply just format 3DS #2 and then someone can put a new NNID on it just fine.

    You can still link another NNID to the 2nd 3ds after you transfer you original NNID back to the 1st 3ds.

    Okay so (in 1 week after I transfer back to 3ds #1) I format 3ds #2, and then after that someone can create a new NNID on 3ds #2 just like normal?

    And, just to be clear, the answer to my main question is therefore "no"?

    Yes, someone can still create a new NNID on the 2nd 3ds like normal.

    Yes the answer is No.

    Sorry guys need some clarification.

    3DS #1 = hacked
    3DS #2 = normal

    #1 Do fieldrunners save injection etc -> system transfer to #2 -> proceed to downgrade/install cfw on #2 -> 1 week later system transfer #2 back to #1

    Now #1 has it's original NNID & #2 can create it's own NNID?

    Correct, as long as both consoles are old or both new (can't system transfer from new to old).
