Please would someone let me know which version of the Giiker Cube comes with this, is it the i3 or i3s?


I have three versions of Giiker Cubes. Based on the serial numbers that pop-up when connecting the cubes through the free Giiker App as well as through Rubiked, I get the following info (followed by their numeral numbers):-

1. Gi (Came with the Rubiked) - Rubiked was recently purchased through the Café's Buy-n-Sell'.
2. GiC (This is the older Version) - Purchased from China.
3, GiS (This is the Newer version) - Purchased from China.

All the above three cubes get connected with the free Giiker App as well as the Rubiked App. Thus IMO all the above versions of the Giiker Cubes are fully compatible with the above two Apps mentioned.

Hope this helps.

Great analysis! One can only complete the following:
Everybody who owns any Giiker Cube can try the app! Download it for free from your app store, connect and try. You will only see a message through the image as long as you have not entered the activation code.

Perfect! Smile

IMO any version of Giiker cube should work without an hitch with the Rubiked App.

When my son purchased Rubiked for me, I faced a typical problem with regard to the Activation Code. The activation code would no longer work. So my son contacted the creator through eMail explaining the situation. The creator promptly replied giving reasons for the Activation Code becoming invalid. The creator promptly reset the code and the App activated. I must say customer service is topnotch - prompt, efficient and effective.

I am presently playing with the Rubiked App. I have found the App do its job efficiently - No problems at all. So far I have found the App's features to be good, useful and practical for a real world performance.

Hope the creator is able to add a couple of extra features (as requested by the members on this thread) when releasing the next App update. That will make the Rubiked App a very versatile and much more in demand.

I think the app is great and total worth the price. The spectator's reactions are phenomenal.

What if I renew my phone? Can I use the Activation Code with the new phone again or do I have to buy a new one?

Base on my experience, you don't have to buy a new activation code. The activation code will remain the same. The code once activated on the cellphone belongs to that particular device. When you change the phone/device all you need to do is to contact the creator and they will reset the same code gain which can then be used to activate on the new phone. They have good customer service and are prompt in responding to your queries.

I had to wait very long for a very short reply and when they finally wrote me back, saying they "really wanted to help me", I wrote my problems and concerns but I never heard back from them... so I didn't have the best customer service experience with Gentlemen's Magic.


I really think it's weird that the picture you email to the spectator keeps changing, A VERY BIG FLAW, and this makes the e-mail function (and the resin I bought this effect) useless for me.



--> All alarm bells will ring Smile Smile when a spectator opens his or her email again later and find out that the picture is changed to a solved cube Smile



Again, I hope they will fix it fast and also add a 'Printing function' or even better an 'Automatic printing function'!


Best Wishes! Smile

About to buy a Giiker cube, and intend to replace the stickers that have the charging holes. Any suggestions (link?) as to where to purchase, and what color stickers (I assume that there are two) have the holes - so that I can just replace those...

Thanks!

A bit of an advice before you go shopping for the Giiker Cube. Different versions of the Giiker Cubes are available starting from say $30 to $55 (shipped from China/ Hong Kong). You can see a long list of Giiker Cubes here - https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R4......_sacat=0

However please avoid the "Xiaomi Giiker M3 Magnetic Cube". This is not an electronic cube. Thus it will not work for our purpose.

Any version of the Giiker Cube will work (based on my own experience with three different versions of the Giiker) with the Rubiked App. However you will have to replace all the stickers as the color of the Chinese Giiker Cubes (BTW all Giiker Cubes are made in China Smile) are quite different than as seen on a normal Rubik's cube. Hence you will need to purchase a set of extra stickers as well.

The Giiker i3S is the latest version priced at around $50 - https://www.ebay.com/itm/Update-Versio-G......qKFdGXWf

Alternately you may like to purchase the cube directly from the Creator of Rubiked. They cost $50 or so.

Hope this helps.

With a piece of tape you can lift all 9 for one side from the paper and put 9 stickers (one complete side) back on you cube at once Smile

Downloaded on my Pixel 2 (Android) the free Super Cube app while I'm waiting for my Rubiked app to arrive. Easily paired the app with my phone, and can use it, but I cannot exit the app without turning off the phone and restarting it. Anyone else have this problem?
