I gave it a try and it works great. At least the first and second one does. I am quite new to the Yau method and haven't been practicing that much so I will take your first advice and start practicing. anyway, thank you for the advice. The colour scheme has been perplexing me a lot lately as I try to wrap my mind around the fact that a 4x4x4 has no center pieces. I should probably start practicing now. btw I do know how to solve the 5x5x5, as Redux 5 is more straightforward to me.1. Practice
2. Look for a corner when you are ready to start your fourth center that has two of the colors you’ve already solved on it: if you get the third one in the right place relative to those two, you’re good
3. What I do, which is not optimal. Keep opposites opposite (easy, like you say) and when you get to placing your first f2l pair look to see if it lines up. If it goes in properly you’re set. If only one side will line up then insert it so the R or L side matches and the F or B doesn’t, then do Uw2 Mw2 Uw2 Mw2 to quickly switch your F and B centers and cross edges. It’s a bit of a cheap trick, and costs me a second or two, but I’ve got bigger fish to fry at 1:25.
