    Original question: No

    Factory reset is also not the only way to remove a NNID, it just happens to be the only official one

    The cfw will stay but every app like FBI and Anemone will be lost, so you'll have to download Luma (boot.firm) and Homebrew Launcher (boot.3dsx) and complete this after formatting: https://3ds.hacks.guide/finalizing-setup
