As I said in the video, this beat a long-standing (a couple of months) PB by more than 3 seconds. It also beats the Canadian national record by more than 2. It also had a G-perm. On the other hand, it was admittedly a pretty easy solve.

Thanks for watching guys!

I see you solve it like the 3x3 (CFOP) instead of the usual centers, edges, etc. What method is that, Yau?

Exactly! It's not really a different method in that you are still Reducing the cube into a 3x3, but here are the steps.
2 Opposite centers
3 Cross edges around one of the centers (for example I do white and yellow centers, so I solve 3 white edges and put them in correctly relative to eachother)
Last 4 centers (obviously preserving the cross edges)
Last cross edge pair+place (Now you have centers+cross done)
Last 8 edges (edge pairing)
F2L
OLL
PLL

Cyoubx has an excellent tutorial on his channel.

nice last 8 edges case

nice last 8 edges case
Only 3 of them were solved already! They just happened to be in the perfect place so that I had sub-5 edge pairing. Don't judge =P

Would people like to see me explain everything that I did in the solve? I've reconstructed everything and have been thinking of making a video like that. Would anybody like that?

Me! I would love to see it.

Cool! Make sure to post the video and reconstruction here

Dang, that's awesome! Congratz My PB is like 37.. So I can't wait for my first sub-35!

My PB was also 37 until this, all it takes is a really good solve with no parity.
Also, I've had 3 (maybe 2) solves where redux+f2l was actually faster than in this one. They both had double parity. Awesome.

Also: the video's uploading. I'll edit this post with the video once it's up. (125 minutes, so it'll be a while).

Here's the video reconstruction:

This is a reconstruction of a recent 4x4 PB I got on camera. I will likely be making more 4x4 walkthroughs in the future. Thanks for watching!

Brests amazingness:

Thanks guys!

Also, if a mod could change the title of the thread to "4x4- 34.07 single + Reconstruction" and merge this post into the first one (at the beginning of the thread) that would be excellent. Thanks =)

Nice reconstruction! I think it may have helped me a little bit. And nice three edges skip. That's the kind of thing that keeps me using Yau =P.

That's not the only reason to use Yau! Edge pairing is faster (with the exception of the last cross edge) and centers are maybe a second slower. It's just better! =P

when you were done with centers and started edgepairing, i dropped the gummy bear i was about to eat as well as my jaw and stayed in the position, with raised hand, until you were finished with the solve. nice job.

PS: "excellent."

The holes after mod seems to be BIG ;D
Or it's just stickers.
