    Hi, I was wondering how to relink my NNID if I were to format and restore my NAND? I have an unlinked emuNAND set up, and my NNID is connected to sysNAND. I would like to be able to access the eshop on sysNAND (9.0) and keep my emuNAND offline. In the process of unlinking my emuNAND, I must have broken my NNID :(

    So to fix this, would I format -> relink NNID to empty new sysNAND -> restore old NAND

    or

    format-> restore old NAND-> link NNID in settings? Or any other way?

    If you know how to fix error 022-2634 on sysnand any other way (after researching here to no avail I called Nintendo, who told me all I can do is format my 3ds), I'd love to hear it. I'll probably be doing the format in about an hour otherwise. ugh I feel like an idiot for messing this up and I'm freaking scared to rewrite the sysNAND.

    I went ahead and took out my sd card, formatted, linked NNID, and restored NAND. It worked! My saves seem to be still there and I can access eshop on sysNAND!

    Manually fixed error 022-2634

    Edit: Just adding this in case people find this by searching. I had to go into the eshop page for one of my games, scroll to the bottom, and use the "repair software" feature to get the games I had previously downloaded to show up (instead of having to redownload all my digital games).

    How did you link an NNID on your outdated sysnand? I thought Nintendo checked for the latest Nver now whenever signing in, so that you had to be on 10.2 or 10.3 to do anything involving NNIDs.

    I was just about to ask in the forum if it was possible to recover the NintendoID by restoring the NAND backup to the outdated sysNAND. So, should I understand tis post as a yes? Can you walk through the steps? It seems my BF already formatted sysNAND in order to unlink the NANDs...

    How did you manually fix the error 022-2634? I can't get passed it whatsoever and I have my NNID setup in emuNAND. I tried booting it with Hans in CakesFW and rxTools.
