    So i just got a second handed wiiu and its linked to a nnid account. I want to use my own account but i have to format the system in order to activate my nnid.l but this system has wii hombrew channel installed on it. So if i format the system will it delete wii hombrew channel too?

    Doing a format in Wii U mode will format the vWii as well (which removes HBC but CIOSes will stay). If you don't have an exploit game, create a new profile and link your NNID then delete the old user
