    Hi!

    2 months ago I installed on a brand new 3ds xl the a9lh+luma mod, and then system transferred all of my data and accounts from my standard new 3ds to this one. This included my NNID that is tied to my Wii U and Switch too.

    I would like to untie this NNID (my main NNID) to my console and create a new NNID, without losing the installed apps or saves. Of course deleting the NNID is not an option either, since it would cause problems with the wii u and switch.

    Is it possible?

    No, it's not possible. If you unlink your NNID all legit games will be unavailable. If you link a new NNID you can't play with your old legit games but you can make a backup of all your saves and re-inject them after you have installed the games with Freeshop or FBI

    by doing that, can you link your nnid to a new console afterward? (or will it say "nnid already linked to a 3ds"?)

    if yes i dont really get how the Nintendo servers could take into account this manual unlink to make it available again to new 3ds?

    I think it will say that message, but you can ask Nintendo to unlink it, just say it broke or something

    Nah, I doubt Nintendo would ban you from getting your NNID back. You were console banned, that's all. You weren't NNID banned so I don't why they wouldn't unlink it for you, but give it a shot
