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...

THE QUALITY OF THIS VIDEO GOT 'MESSED UP' WHILE UPLOADING !
This is a Walkthrough solve of the Yau Method on the 4x4. I made this video intended to receive Tips from other solvers so i can progress in speed.I currently Average 50-55 on 4x4.
Please don't just comment 'Practice'...
this is my first sub 50 and it was with a PLL skip. it would of been a good solve anyway.For some reason the audio is messed up but the video is fine.
feedback would be great and please feel free to go subscribe to my channel.

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...
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.

I looked into it (a bit) and have found the cheapest reputable online places for 4-cubes. Here they are (in order of reputation):
MF8 + Dayan
ShengShou (black or white)
Anyway, the real reason I made this thread is for opinions. Can somebody with experience...
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...
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...
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...
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...

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...
