    I accidently formated my Sysnand without making a backup of it.
    Now my Gateway entry point of the Blue Card on my N3DS 9.0 is gone.

    How can I enter Gateway without Ocarina of Time and Cubic Ninja to make my Blue Card work as an entry point?

    I searched for it but couldn't find an answer.

    Formatting your sysNAND won't remove the downgraded DS whitelist (aka the "timewarp" or "bluecardfix"), nor the downgraded MSET (if it did, you'd basically have a partial brick since the system settings app is pretty essential), so you should be able to just use your blue card to run the Gateway ROP installer again.

    It might be a contacts issue (i.e. the flashcart might not be making a solid connection with the card slot all the time). DS flashcarts weren't exactly built to be the best quality, unfortunately. You could try one of the various "paper tricks", maybe. I'm sure there are a number of topics on it in the NDS section, but the gist of it is you stick a piece of paper (or thin plastic, from say, an old credit/plastic card) in between the contacts and the plastic shell of the card so it changes how the flashcart makes contact with the 3DS.

    Note that I've never done it myself, so I can't really say if it makes it any better or worse.

    I see you don't need help anymore, but if anyone needs a method for loading the Gateway Launcher without a copy of OOT/CN/Sky3DS:

    Code:
    You need:
    - A 9.0 - 9.2 (n)3ds
    - The latest gateway firmware: https://www.gateway-3ds.com/downloads/
    - The 2.5 HBL boot.3dsx: https://smealum.github.io/ninjhax2/boot.3dsx
    - The latest HBL version of FBI: https://gbatemp.net/threads/release-fbi-open-source-cia-installer.386433/
    - A cia version of FBI (Comes with download above)
    - A cia version of Cubic Ninja from your region (can't provide this, but a certain iso site might be able to)
    - An Internet connection
    - PastaCFW files: http://jheberg.net/captcha/pastacfw-for-ninjhax2-90-92/
    
    1. Copy the boot.3dsx to your micro-sd card root
    2. Copy the "3ds" folder from FBI on to your micro-sd card root.
    3. Copy the PastaCFW folder into the 3ds folder.
    4. Copy the cia files on to your micro-sd card.
    5. Setup Browserhax: https://gbatemp.net/threads/yellows8s-browserhax-thread.398132/
    6. Launch the HBL with browserhax.
    7. Choose the PastaCFW
    8. Once you're back in the menu, immediately start the HBL again
    9. This time, choose FBI.
    10. Use FBI to install the FBI cia
    11. Put the gateway's launcher.dat on your micro-sd card root.
    12. Boot into the Cakes/Pasta CFW.
    13. Start FBI and install Cubic Ninja.
    14. Start CUBIC NINJA, choose "Create", then "QR code", and finally "Scan QR code".
    15. On your PC, go to the GATEWAY ULTRA 3.X/Save Games for New 3DS/Cubic/your_region folder and scan the QR code.

    In the rare instance I actually need to run Gateway anymore, that's pretty much what I do, just use a Cubic Ninja CIA + minipasta. MSET is messy.
