    So... I formatted my emuNand (w/ NNID linked) with Tiny Format.

    And now I'm trying to use that same ID on another emuNand (to dump some eShop stuff) but it thinks the NNID is still linked to a console that technically doesn't exist.

    Is there a way to fix this? :(

    No, but now I want to use that NNID again and I can't, because Nintendo thinks it's still linked to a console that technically doesn't exist.

    If you want to properly remove it a system format on the system is required. Do you have the system? Back it up if stuffs on there first then restore after

    I lost the backup I made before formatting :c
    So should I try logging in the same console (I was trying with a different one) and see if it works?

    No, the thing is that the console with the NNID technically doesn't exist. I'm trying to use that ID on other console to get the ticket.db and dump my eShop stuff.
