I think I may get a meilong and magnetise it... it looks really fun to me. How hard is it to do? How hard is it to mess up?
Watch TCKyewbs video on how to magnetize a Wuque. That will teach you the technique. If you follow that, you won't mess up.

The only changes to make are to use 4x1 N35s when pairing to edge pieces together and then 4x2 N35 when pairing an edge and a corner.

It's easy to do and very little chance of screwing up if you follow her instructions. The only issue you may have is putting the cube back together. Z3Cubing, however, just did a video on how to assemble big cubes and that will help you if you have trouble.

Yeah, that was the video that inspired me. Are these the correct ones? https://www.speedcube.com.au/collections/magnets/products/4mm-x-2mm-n45-rare-earth-magnets-50pcs

Also do you have to magnetise the very centre parts near the screw, and if you scramble as a 2x2 separates the layers?

First ones, yes. Second ones you will likely find to be too strong since they're 4x1.5mm instead of 4x1mm. Usable - that's what I put in my first one and it was still good - but too strong.

No. Edges and corners only.

how does that work if there's none near the centre? also, I am confused by the whole polarities thing. in tckwebs video, I didn't;'t see anything different.
Thanks

The edges and corners lock the pieces into place - you don't need anything near the center. Just follow tckyewbs video, you'll be OK, trust me :)
