    I have an 11.5 n3DS XL and I noticed that almost all of my apps were suddenly gone. I had recently used the eShop and set up a new NNID to use there. All of my games were gone and there were only non-legit (FBI, Luma Updater, etc) applications left. I installed the Miitopia demo and then deleted my NNID and tried to go into the eShop, then set things up, then went to the home menu, and then I saw my Miitopia demo disappeared at that moment. What is happening? Will I be able to get everything back or am I screwed?

    Any game/application tied to an NNID will be removed when the associated NNID is removed from the system.

    I checked data management and they show up but grayed out with x’s over the icons. Is there a way to get these back?

    Install TikDevil or TikShop and run one of them. The tickets were deleted when you removed the NNID they were associated with.

    I also recommend installing TikSweep. It'll remove any and all unused tickets.

    What if I install the tickets when I have no NNID? Will they still get deleted?

    Run tiksweep, then tikshop. If that doesn't work, manually restoring each CIA won't take up any extra storage and you'll still have your saves.

    Saves are wiped when you reinstall the CIAs.
    Also, wrong way around. It's tikShop then tikSweep.

    No, I meant tiksweep first to get rid of any corrupted tickets or anything along those lines, then tikshop.

    Running it afterwards will do that anyway, but the point of running it afterwards is to get rid of unused tickets.

    If you keep having this issue, it could be a fake SD card, in which case it would be a good idea to run h2testw:

    But you don't need to do that yet, as it takes a while to run.
