I'v been cubing for a while (as a beginer) but ive only recently become interested in speedsolving. The question i have is this. I've solved the centres and aligned the edges of my 4x4 cube as well as solved the f2l, or in the case the f3l. Why now do i get to the last layer only to find an...
So I'm interested in 4x4. I have very little knoledge of it, but I think i get the jist of the solving methodolgy, or at least the idea of how to do it. Basically I would like to know what methods are beginner helpful ( im pretty noobish with a 3x3, but i understand alot of the maths behind it)...
Hi guys! Here are some more videos. I've recently got my LanLan 2x2 and ShengShou 4x4! And they are pretty good! 4х4 is Yau Method!!! 2x2 is Fridrich method. I know I should learn CLL..
Thanks for watching!
P.S. Sorry for big post. :D
I'm saving up about $100 dollars to get some stuff (the majority of which is cubes) and the stuff i want costs about $120 - $125 altogether with shipping and i can't decide which one NOT to get.
here is what i want to buy:
$20 for dallas open
$23 for minecraft
$18 for maru 4x4
I'm also now colour neutral with this method. I'll sorta show you how you can become colour neutral easily with method (if you're already CN on 333). You just need to be CN at centres and know your pairs of opposite colours. In the following examples, I will be solving a cube which uses the...
what i do:
1: layer one (centers cross corners - ccc)
i solve the first center
then the cross edge pairs
and insert corners.
2: 2nd layer (centers edges - 2ce)
i use the center swapping algorithm used in cage to solve the 2nd layer centers
(its helpful to make the side of the...
Hey guys, im still relatively new to cubing ( 2 months ) and i have purchased a white Guhong from icubemart. I love it, however there seems to be a slight problem. No matter how loose, or how tight i adjust the tension screws, the tension doesn't change. The white and yellow sides are so lose...

The rules are easy - I give you 5 scrambles, you take out the best and the worst, and average the remaining ten.
If you get three consecutive weeks in a row sub-1 average, please go away from this thread and show off. .

I just got a 4x4 and learned how to solve it, learned the last two edges and parities, which were the steps I didn't knew before and Im finishing it just over 4minutes (30sec centers, 3min edges, 45sec 3x3+parity) for any reference Im just sub-30 in 3x3.
Anything I should learn to get a...
So, I'm working on another lolmethod.
If someone can help me with alg-finding, that would be awesome; others can now and later use this thread to request help with alg-generation/finding for odd systems that they're working on.
What I need is this:
The flipped edge ELS cases with each 6 CPLL...
I have never physically touched a 4x4 in my life, that is how little experience I have with 4x4's. I just skipped straight to the 5x5 and I have decided to backtrack and get a 4x4. I've heard of some cubes that are good by the following brands:
1. Maru 4x4
2. YJ 4x4
3. QJ 4x4
I just got my Dayan 4x4 today and it's nice(compared to my old jank Rubiks brand) and cuts pretty well but is a little rough to turn. It definitely needs some lube but I'm not sure how to do it. Last time I tried to lube a 4x4 I destroyed it. I have Lubix and then some generic silicone spray...

Ok, so I am really sick of people asking what kind of cubes should they get.
It seems that I have started the "The XXX Thread" wave at this forum, although some of the threads are pretty useful, the invarible title really annoys me...
So ive been wondering for a while whether there is a point at which loosening the tension will start to make the cube lock-up more and that until that point, it turns better without lock-ups until said point.
I also think that just loosening the cube in general makes it lock-up more often...
