I've restrung mine and it broke after the 10th solve. (not saying anything against his tutorial)
Why are these guys spamming a "cubing" website, if you want to sell a car, go do it somewhere else.
The same goes to WoW gold ads.

I guess EastSheen, Meffert's and VCubes aren't speedsolving either?:p
[sarcasm]*Sigh* Good point. I guess we're just going to need to close off half the threads in here; after all, joy cubes, Edison cubes, online simulators, tutorials on how to solve anything are also not Rubik's-related.[/sarcasm]

Seriously, 'tho, those are discussed because Rubik's has created a version of their puzzles (or provided inspiration for them). And they're still used to solve speedily, so they can stay.

Can someone help me un-string my magic? One string popped out and I realize to restring it, I have to un-string it and re-string it.

Gently and patiently twist one tile at a time until you get them to come loose, starting with a tile where the string came loose. You should be able to get them free without really knowing what you're doing, if you do this a while. It shouldn't require a lot of force, just twisting in various directions until they come loose.

After a couple of restringing attempts, you will eventually get where you can restring without taking it apart. But for a first try, I think it makes sense to take the whole thing apart. That way you'll understand how it's put together better.

i took apart everything. But when i try to re-string it, the pictures comes out of the plastic tile, or one of the plastic tile falls off.
my strings are too tight to re-string also.

Taping the strings while putting them on may help. Or just do the things I do - be very patient. I started re-stringing my first magic on Friday and it took me 4 hours from Friday through Sunday. I just stringed one today and it was a piece of cake.

And about your strings being too tight, that doesn't make sense. If they were originally on the magic, then it should work. Perhaps you aren't strong enough then. :D
