Looks like the video guide I used was mislabeled and I was performing a wifi credential reset, which explains quite a bit.
Again - I have no idea what account the thing is registered to. I have requested a transfer multiple times, and it does not come into any of my emails. I do not know if I mistyped the email when i first registered, or if it bugged out, but I have no access to or even know what account it is registered to.
Have you got CLI installed?
This might make re-claiming your device to a known account easier (and you don’t need to know before hand to which it currently is claimed, but you should get a notification mail to the previous owner account - unless you had a typo and this is in fact a nirvana account).
