Hello, i just bought a Acekard 2 (dsi (XL) & 3ds Compatibble) for my dsi xl and a R4 Wifi for my ndsl and the seller told me to watch out for the timebomb, i don't really know what he ment by that, is the fashcard going to destory itself and can't use it no more, or it will block the acces to the console? so i want to know if those cards have a timebomb on it, if so how do i stop it? and can i use my acekard on the new 3ds?

Timebomb in the context of flashcarts refers to the kernel software stopping working after a certain date. No hardware damage to the cart and/or the console. Please don't take bomb literally. It is a logical bomb. "If date > x then don't load games anymore." See this thread.

Acekard 2i (AKAIO Wood based software) has no timebomb. Don't know about the other one. Bypassing the timebomb see the above thread as well.
=========

AceKard 2i will only work on very low firmware versions of the 3DS unless you have installed custom firmware to disable the whitelist check. Since the other cart does not even mention DSi or 3DS it is not likely to work on unmodified 3DS consoles and might require special loaders.

Edit:
I see you cross-posted in another section. Please don't do that. It is confusing.

and if the ds stops working i can get it fix by just changing the date?

The DS itself will not stop working in any way. The flashcart kernel will not load any games and might show an error message.
See the thread above for more information how to deal with the timebomb
