I've seen couple of videos with example solves but I just can't understand a thing with the way some guys explain it, ¿Is there something written about it? And also, ¿Is there a topic about this? I've searched for it and found nothing, so just in case...

Thanks
tip always try to use the corners to help orient the centers of the Equator layers if you do not then during the 3x3 stage 2 of the centers will need to switch places

I'm sorry but I didn't understood that. ¿Do you mean to orient or permute the edges while doing the centers?

the corners determent the correct side that the centers should go

What Michael is trying (and failing) to say is that you can use the corners to remind yourself of your cube's colour scheme while doing centres. It's much better to just learn the colour scheme though.

6. Ohh right, now I get it.

Thanks Michael, but I have to agree with WTF2L (lol), it's better to learn the color scheme (which is not difficult at all). I have no problems with that, I was just asking for general tips to do the centers faster

7. Do you do BLD? That should be able to help you at least remember the relative position of centers, if not of the whole cube and from different angles.

8. Does anybody know about helpcube.webs.com 's helplube

9. @Achifaifa : Stefan Pochmann has a great guide to 4x4 centres, and Chris Hardwick has a great guide to pairing edges.
I found them useful, anyways

I'm trying to learn but my memory is horrible. I'll bear that in mind tho, thank you
