    Just wanted to know what method you use for solving a 4x4 blindfolded.

    I use comm centers, r2 edges and OP corners.

    Memo: Letters for centers and edges, tapping/letters for corners

    BTW, letters include audio loop and stuff like that.

    Comms for centers, not very optimal comms for corners and a modification of r2 for edges with evading long algos for inner slices.
    Memo: letter images for centers and edges, letter audio for corners.

    U2 for centers, r2 for edges, OP for corners.
    Centers and edges are memorized with letters (mix of images and audio), corners are memorized visually.
    But I'm slow at 4BLD and have only had two successes before. I've attempted <10 times.

    Commutators for centers with setup moves and floating buffer, BH wings with fixed buffer, BH corners with fixed buffer.
    Memo: All is memorized with letter pairs; centers and wings are stored with 3 letter pair images per location; corners are done with audio loop. A 4x4x4 BLD typically fits in 7 memory locations for me.

    And it takes me 5 just for a 3x3... :(

    Although I have not solved the 4x4 blindfold yet, my method is mostly 3 cycles. I would first do OP corners then AUF to adjust so the edges are in the correct place after. I would then do 3 cycle on the edges then undo the AUF. Finally I finish the centres with 3 cycles.

    Corner memo: Auditory loop single syllable words (prepared list)
    center and wing memo: letter pair images placed in a journey location

    Solving: BH
    -edit- after reading Mike's post if I'm being more specific then I use floating buffer for solving corners and wings, and fixed buffer for solving centers (occasionally I'll use floating buffer on centers, but not often)

    Visual Corners, Letter pairs --> Images for centres and wings. Quite challenging for me!

    I use comms for centres and some wings and some corners, otherwise r2 and OP :(.

    For 4BLD I first memo centers with letters, building sentences with them, then wings with the same system, than corners visual.
    Solving: First corners with OP/BH, Centers with comms, Wings with advanced r2.

    Memo: centers - edges - corners all with letter-pair words made into one long story
    Execution: centers (comm, fixed buffer)- edges (r2) - corners (OP)
     
  11. Memo(in this order): Centers- Sentence, Edges- Sentence, Corners- Auditory
    Solving (In this order): Corners- 3style (mostly speed optimal), Centers- 3style (Still getting used to rUl style comms), Edges- 3style(mostly speed optimal)
     
  12. Memo: Centres then wings using images/locations (4 letters per image, 2 per location) with ocassional visual, then corners with audio loop.
    Solve: Corners (minus parity it I have it) -> centres -> wings, all using comms, then parity fix(es) if necessary.

    Memo: Centres - Letter-pair images, Edges - LP images, Corners - LP audio
    Exec: Corners - OP plus some random comms, Centres - Comms with Ulb buffer, Edges - r2 plus extra stuff

    I'm sure whether to feel proud or isolated because I use full visual for memory...

    Memo: Letter pair images for the centers and wings. I use single syllable sounds (audio pairs) for the corners.

    Execution: Commutators for the centers, a mixture of r2 and commutators for wings, and commutators for the corners.

    Full visual is just beast. I use visual for corners on 3bld. I've thought about attempting a 4bld but not too sure if I can handle a fail.

    visual for everything
    U2/r2/R2 for centers/edges/corners

    you're not the only one :p

    Visual everything. For some reason I have higher success ratio on my full visual 5x5x5bld solves though.

    Memo order: Wings, centers, corner
    exec: corners, centers wings.

    Method comutators on everything.

    Memo: centres (sentence/audio), wings (sentence/audio), corners (audio)
    Exec: corners (3style) wings (not going to say 3style... so just 'comms') centres (see wings)

    Memo (in this order): wings with leters, centers by position with letters, CO visual, CP with musical notes
    Execution (in this order): 3OP corners with floating buffer, BH wings with floating buffer, comms for centers
