    Hi I was thinking about getting cfw with dsiware but what does this sentence means "the NNID on the 3DS that has CFW will be stuck on the 3DS that is getting CFW until you system transfer back OR you call nintendo to do it"
    Thanks

    If you have an NNID, it will be transferred to the receiving system. To get it back on the source system, you either must do another system transfer, or call Nintendo so they can transfer it back.

    You would have to transfer the NNID to the receiving system to a 3rd system, to transfer back after the system is hacked.

    I believe it's worth it to ditch your NNID for CFW, just be sure to give your friend his NNID back after the week transfer period passed :P

    Or can I create a new NNID on my system then or do I have to keep his

    He won't have any. Also both NNIDs will be stuck together, so only one of you can get your NNID back. You'll also lose any data and save games you have (as you will need to format your console).
