# 4x4x4

1. ### 4×4×4 assembly in 5:30

Steps: 1. First layer's edges and corners. 2. Build upwards, but leave one edge pair on the last layer empty. 3. Rotate that free slot to the bottom layer, then fill in the centres. 4. Insert last edge pair, optionally rotate back. I assume this method will work about as well with nonmagnetic...

I normally do 3-3-3-3 pairing, but I skipped so many pairs that I just did 3-3-3 or something :P

9. ### Rubies' brand 4x4 core based explosion

Yesterday, I was playing with my rubiks 4x4 and it began to feel really loose. A few turns later, it exploded like a qj 2x3x3. Upon closer inspection, I discovered one of the triangles had fallen out due to a stripped screw. A little bit of super glue fixed the issue, but I was wondering if I am...

11. ### Reduction of a 4x4x4

Would it be possible to reduce a 4x4 to a 2x2x2? I tried once and it took me a few hours, but I think with practice I might be able to get it down to a few minutes. Has anyone found a quick method or is reduction to a 2x2 improbable for speed solving?

I keep seeing all of these questions about lube. I think it would be good to keep lubrication questions all in one thread about where to buy and what lube to use for what cubes. Lube Types (Descriptions by Thrawst) Lubix is like UN Security Council resolutions: it's not a be all end all...
13. ### Roundup

I looked into it (a bit) and have found the cheapest reputable online places for 4-cubes. Here they are (in order of reputation): X-Cube MF8 + Dayan Ghost Hand ShengShou (black or white) Maru Lan Lan :D Anyway, the real reason I made this thread is for opinions. Can somebody with experience...
14. ### My new Meffert's 4x4 feels very loose.

I just got a Meffert's 4x4 a couple of days ago, and in that short period of time it has started feeling very loose. I haven't had any pops, but I overturn constantly. The whole cube feels kind of rattly which is somethign I wasn't expecting based on reviews I've read of it. Is this normal at...

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...
17. ### [Help Thread] Puzzle Setup / Tension Discussion

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...
18. ### X-cube 4x4 discussion

I have seen a few videos about this cube and it looks like another v-cube KO but with a very interesting method of keeping the mech in alignment. i wonder how many issues it will have with patent infringement later on. the only problem i have with this cube so far (and i dont even own one) is...
19. ### 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...

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...
