    Nintendo games (Miitomo, Mario Run) crash upon opening if your iPhone is Jailbroken.
    When your phone is jailbroken this is easy to get around, however I decided to remove my jailbreak and update to iOS 10.
    Despite restoring and backing up my Nintendo apps now crash when opening as if they think the phone is still Jailbroken.
    Nintendo apps are the only apps that give me this issue, so unless they flagged my UDID or something, I'm not sure if there's a fix for this.
    Not sure why restoring from factory settings won't fix the issue.

    Use iTunes to back up before doing the restoration.

    Have this problem to and the problems with the backup, which saves some jailbreak data.
    Restoring as a new device will fix this, but don't know what to do about it otherwise.

    Jailbreaking probably leaves trails in your phone. Unless we get the source code of the Nintendo games, we'll never know how they detect jailbroken devices.

    I heard some people saying they have the same issue when playing Pokemon Go.
    I havent jailbroken in a while, so I can't help you there. But indeed your Nintendo account must have been linked with your iPhone while jailbroken and now it doesnt match what they are launched. You could try restoring and not using your backup to see if works, altho I am sure thats not the solution you want.
