    I System transfered to a 11.2 console. So NNID from system A got wiped. I created a new NNID on that very system (was source). I kept the SD card in it. Upon setup, the system created a new folder structure. Now I moved all the content that was under the old id-structure to the current folder used by the system+NNID. But how can I reclaim those already downloaded games. I installed the tickets using qr codes, but they don't show up. On the system I have moved the NNID to, they all show up.

    Is there a way? Or do I have to delete and dl again?

    There's a way with some movable.sed trickery, but that breaks other things.

    Not without a nand backup. afaik

    In short:
    Each system nand has its own id, i.e. the number in the N 3DS folder. And the contents of the folder [titles, data, saves] are encrypted for use by that nand.

    1 nand = 1 folder id.

    Nnid doesn't matter, it's a random system id that does.

    I think you are misinformed. The folder naming changes every time you do a system format.

    Yea, that's what I'm saying.

    Formatting formats the nand so it has a new id. New id = new folder name

    Edit. probably should have said in the previous post what makes nand 'new'. Namely system format = new random system id and system transfer = transfered system id

    I'm already done reinstalling everything. It's convenient though that you can just queue up all those titles in the eshop and let the system download in sleep mode.

    ID1 ties to movable.sed.

    ID2 ties to SD card or console but can be automatically changed in specific situation.

    Just installing tickets dosent make them appear, your moveable.sed have to match to decrypt the sd. just importing it breaks a bunch o stuff too

    Not to mention that id2 changes at a moments notice when doing a transfer/format, and it saves the renamed copy of id2. You could also restore an older dump tho.


    If what you did was possible, people could sys transfer>copy stuff back and game share all day.
    Wouldn't be one of Nintendo's finer moments.
