# 4x4

1. ### 4x4 speededgeing

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...
2. ### Odd WCA stats/ Stats request Thread

The intention of this thread is for people to post interesting competition statistics like the one below. Esteban Marin has only done one official solve, and the event was 7x7x7!
3. ### The "Request an Alg" Thread

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...
4. ### What 4x4 to get?

Hello, 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 4...
5. ### Use Mini cube in competition?

Can you use a min/micro cube in a real competition? Like a micro memory cube or a mini QJ 4x4?
6. ### How to lube Dayan 4x4/What lube to use?

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...
7. ### [Help Thread] "What cube should I get?" The Puzzle Choice Thread

Edit: Please find the latest suggestions in this thread here. 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...
8. ### Lock Up Help

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...
9. ### [Help Thread] My cube has issues! My cube is broken!

The center cap (or w/e you call it) snapped (well, "flew") off of my cube when i was turning it (i just finished lubing/sanding it) and it won't go back on!! (like, it snapped off and I can't tell if there's supposed to be a piece inside or something, but it won't stay on... every time i put it...
10. ### [Help Thread] K4 Discussion

anyone familiar with this 4x4 method? anyway i'm looking into this and actually trying this out. F3L is really really easy but I got really confused about which algorithms to use for which case when it comes to last layer. step 7 at http://blue.kracknet.net/~snkenjoi/k4/ gives a list of a bunch...
11. ### [Help Thread] 4x4 Discussion and Help

I need help making my time better... I use reduction(6 edge pairing method) followed by fridrich F2l then 3look LL. My average is about 3 mins and i think I've finished reduction at around 1:30-1:45.. the rest is all 3x3x3.. which i think i'll improve on one day.. In my reduction, my...
