    Isn't it the same just like the 2 x 2? I use the same algorithms and it works :)

    I really want to learn this and I prefer written tutorials,but this is 4 years old.I'm sure a lot of stuff wud have been updated and advanced methods must have come,so is this tutorial really worth reading now in May 2011? Or this method is still decently fast.

    I still solve this way. I can get sub-7 times fairly regularly with it, and the primary reason I'm still slow is because I'm slow at wings; my centers are much faster than my wings.

    The improvement that goes beyond this is simply to go straight for BH centers. That's superior - it will cut off a move or two per pair, on average. But it's a pretty minor difference.

    This tutorial isn't outdated at all.

    Commutators are not outdated. And they never will be.

    I suggest you rephrase your requests in the future. You will get little help if you sound like a lazy a$$. What will become of you when youtube is gone? Seriously.
