    Does this OLL 4x4 method exist

    Some days ago I found a shourcut in a 4x4 OLL. The alg is simple:Rw U2 Rw' Lw' U2 Lw Rw U2 Rw2 U2 Rw2 F2 Rw. I found out that a simmilar method exists for when you have parity, but my question is: does this method completly exist? A new way of doing 4x4 OLL. I know sunes will stay sunes, but dot...

    App Development

    I am currently developing an all around solving algorithmic app. I find that there is no single app with all know algorithms, and all methods easily accessible. I was wondering if anyone would like to contribute possible app names, art, and other ideas.

    YayLL

    I feel like there's a trigger that hasn't gotten much love: R U R' F'. This trigger can be done fairly fast. Because of that, decided to play around with it, a lot. What I've found quite a few cool algs that can be done by conjugating stuff with this trigger which I'll be calling "yay" and it's...

    Learning Full ZBLL - My Journey

    Folks, I have decided to embark on possibly the most difficult speed cubing accomplishment out there. I'm going to learn full ZBLL. My goal is to learn at least one algorithm per day on average. At this rate it'll take me 1 - 2 years to learn the whole bit. I've got 493 algorithms...

    How do Rubik's Cube algorithms work?

    Solving the first two layers of a Rubik's Cube is very intuitive. One can watch the algorithms in action and see exactly why they work. However, when using known algorithms to solve the third layer of a Rubik's Cube, they seem to just work by magic, with no explanation. Is there a way to explain...

    Sune timer (Android) -- Major Update

    Hey everyone, Two years ago - I launched Sune timer right here on speedsolving.com forums. Throwback to that: https://www.speedsolving.com/forum/showthread.php?43519-New-android-App-Any-Thoughts&highlight=sune+timer Since then, I've become a significantly better programmer. This...

    New PLL guide, with algorithms and performance notes for all 84 angles

    Last night, I finished putting together a downloadable PLL guide, with algorithms and performance notes for all 84 angles. It's a PDF containing internal hyperlinks for nonlinear use. The algs I curated are a combination of: (a) algs I've come up with, either on my own or by using Cube...

    COLL's that I found by hand

    Yes, I have done it! I have found every non-Sune/antiSune COLL by hand, with no computer! I have the algorithms here. I also have included my recognition method, which I also figured out myself. Enjoy! I will include access to alg.cubing.net playback soon.

    3 color 3x3x3 algorithm thread

    the 3 color 3x3x3 that has yellow opposite yellow, red opposite red, blue opposite blue can be solved using a different set of algorithms. I did not find a thread for this so I made one. there are 4 of each edge. there are 3 unique edge color combinations. there are 4 of each corner piece. there...

    1LLL/OLLCP-EP algorithms

    1LLL/OLLCPEP algorithms Lately I've been generating a lot of algorithms, not so much for practical use, but rather just for the fun of it. I decided with Robert Yau to generate the whole LL-set for a bad OLLCP case (12 algs) mainly because I was bored and had winter break. This was...

    How does one figure out how to solve a puzzle?

    I am new to cubing in general. Most of the cubes I own solve like a 3 x 3 or something pretty similar. The only cube I have that has a fairly different structure is the Skewb. I did use a tutorial to start solving the 3 x 3 puzzles. After that, I started making my own algorithms in the form of...

    Megaminx last layer help needed!

    Alright, here's the situation. I have solved the entire puzzle, save the last row of the upper faces. All my corner/edge pairs are made and the top face is complete, as well. If the picture attached correctly, then you see what I'm talking about. As you can see, one pair is correctly aligned and...

    New Cuber

    Hey Guys! I'm a new cuber and currently learning CFOP. Any advice to learn all of the algorithms or oll and pll? Also I'm looking to get a new 3x3 cube what should I get with a pb of 40 sec? Thanks!

    U perm as a commutator/conjugate

    Hi all, as a maths lover I recently picked up the Rubik's cube and thoroughly enjoyed the online teachings and maths surrounding the puzzle. I've been writing down the beginner's algorithms as commutators/conjugates for interest sake and to aid my memory. However the U perm anti clockwise ->...

    How many algorithms can you memorize effectively per day?

    So, I'm not sure if there's a post about this yet (searched but didn't find), if there is, apologies, but how many algorithms can you personally memorize per day? And retain the algs. If you're wondering why I'm asking, I've decided to choose to choose "a fate worse than death" and begin...

    Antoine Cantin's cubing site (OH algs, 2GLL and more)

    https://sites.google.com/site/antoineccantin/ My site has been up for a while, but today I made some changes, added some stuff and decided to finally officially announce it. The notable feature is a small alg database including: OH PLL 2 look OH OLL Full OH OLL OH COLL Feet PLL OH and 2H...

    What to Learn after full OLL?

    Alright so I'm finishing up with the oll algs so now I don't know what to spend my time on (besides the obvious f2l improvement) anyway I know full OLL and PLL and I'm color neutral so I'm just wondering whats the most important thing right now. P.S I average 18-20 if that helps at all...

    4LLL Tutorial

    Hi, Back about one year ago, I learned 4LLL. But there wasn't a guide that could tell me what to do; just the algs. So, I decided that I would make a tutorial that would help others like me to take a step towards improving their times. And what a coincidence it's Christmas today :D So...

    Request - Fridrich Setup Algorithms

    Sorry if this question has been answered already, but I have searched all over the forums, wiki and popular cubing websites. I want to learn Fridrich F2L, OLL and PLL algorithmically. But, to practice each algorithm, I need the setup formulae for each of the cases. Dan's cubestation had them...
