1. ## How to fix Maru 4x4 misalignment permanently?

I have a maru 4x4 and it has been misaligning every single solve, and more then once during a solve(4 or 5 times). I know how to fix the problem on the spot but I was wondering does anybody know a way or mod to fix it permanently so I don't have to deal with it every time I turn the inner layers of the cube.

2. This happens when maru's get old i would buy a new 4x4 if so i would recommend shengshou

Here's an example:
1:12.63 min, 1:25.09 min, 1:37.01 min, 1:20.69 min, 1:43.21 min are reported as 1:27.60 min average, yet (72.63s + 85.09s + 97.01s + 80.69s + 103.21s)/5 = 87.726s, or 1:27.73 min. (If rounding up applies. If not, 1:27.72 min.). I double-checked to make sure I wasn't doing my math wrong..
Explain, please?
Averages generally exclude the best and worst time and take the mean of the remaining 3 times (for an average of 5). The mean time would be what you calculated, not the average.

So for your example the average time excludes the best and worst (72.63s and 103.21s) and the mean of the remaining 3 is: (85.09 + 97.01 + 80.69)/3=87.60s=1:27.60

Also when doing larger averages I believe additional times are excluded (for average of 50 I believe best/worst 3 times are excluded, for average of 100 best/worst 5 times are excluded etc.)

4. is it possible to use the ps3 move camera to record video onto the ps3 and then post the video on youtube? I know that i can video chat with my ps3, but i want to also record.

5. ## Help with Maru 4x4.

Anyone know how to get super glue off of a core of a maru 4x4 I accidently glued one of the centers and it wont turn.

6. i'm training fridrich method,with 4LLL.
current maximum result is 53 secs.
i wonder how can i decrease that time to 40 seconds
i spend about 13-16 seconds on cross,30-45 seconds on f2l and about 12-16 seconds on 4LLL
= )
also i want to know,if there are cases on orienting edges in last layer,when none of the cases given in instructions of 4LLL are present = )

You need to practise your cross and f2l.

After that you are sub-40 or somthing it can be good to start learning full PLL.

yeah,i'm planning to learn ful PLL
You need to practise your cross and f2l.
and what would be a good result for me on cross and f2l ?
(considering my time....)
{just to know,where i reached my limit and i gotta concentrate on full pll,etc....}

5 seconds cross is very easy if you learn how to do that good. If you aren't doing cross on bottom I recommend you to do.
Get down f2l to 20-25 will come with some practise so keep practising

Definitely cross, then F2L.
