I've noticed that there are often very interesting posts related to big cube single BLD, and they are always spread out across various different threads. I'm posting this thread so that hopefully we can gather all of that interesting information into one easy to find place.

Consider this thread as a spring board thread for all things big cube BLD related. By Big Cube BLD I mean solving a cube larger than 3x3x3 blindfolded. It can be a "one answer question thread" for big cube BLD, or a place to discuss methodology or theory as well.

So, if you have something interesting to say relating to big cube BLD, post it here!

To start off, I've noticed that recently a lot of us are posting our time breakdowns for all steps for 4x4x4 BLD, but it's buried inside of the Blindfold Accomplishments thread. Well, to start off this thread let's all collect our time breakdowns here and maybe it will be easier to discuss!

4x4x4 BLD solve:

Scramble: L' F' U' F' Uw2 B2 D' B' Fw2 Uw' Rw Fw Uw2 F Rw' U2 L2 Rw D R' B U2 F' Uw' R' Fw2 Uw' B2 D Uw2 U2 Rw B' F' U' Rw Fw U2 B2 F'

Total memorization time: 2:38.34

Total solving time: 3:21.05

Total overall time: 5:59.39

1) 06.69 orient the cube

2) 1:02.03 Memorize centers

3) 1:17.98 Memorize edges

4) 11.64 Memorize corners

5) 21.45 Solve corners (with the exception of parity)

6) 1:23.86 Solve centers

7) 09.02 Fix corner parity

8) 1:26.72 Solve edges
