    I've recently had the update nag on my 4.5 3DS XL but I've also have a NNID linked to my 3DS, I remember reading somewhere that this will mean the 3DS needs to connect online once formatted and I don't want to run the risk of it updating my firmware in the process. If this is the case is there a work around? thanks

    You should mention that all your eshop games are gone, along with the save files. And you can't download again cause you need to update to access the eshop.
