    OK, on the 5x5 i have seen 2 major Parity cases that i can not seem to figure out there's:

    2 1
    1 2
    1 2

    and

    1
    1 flipped
    1

    I have seen dozens of algorithms for these. which one would you consider the easiest to learn? I already know how to solve a 4x4, 3x3, and 2x2 cubes

    Pick whichever one you like most and can do fastest/most comfortably.

    For the first one, I put it on the U layer and do a y rotation to set it up, then do: l' U2 l' U2 F2 l' F2 r U2 r' U2 l2

    I haven't tried many other algs, but I really like that one and don't feel like I'd need to switch it for any reason. For the second case, I actually don't even know an alg for it since I do AVG edges. If I get something like that, it is ALWAYS taken care of before I get to the end. I should probably learn an alg for it just incase because I do sometimes get it when I do 7x7 edges. Oh well.

    Edit- I didn't even realize that alg I posted was on the bigcubes page, it would've saved me some time to just copy it. I forget where I learned it but it wasn't there.

    I only know the single wing swap, double flipped midges, and the case thats set up by:

    u L' U' L F' L F L' u' (don't know name)

    and I still get pretty good times.

    I do the last 4 edges in such a way that it is EXTREMELY rare I get a case other than single swap, the alg described one, or a 3-cycle.
