(this happened like last month but I forgot to post about it I guess)

Got my second 4BLD centres success and managed to solve the rest of the cube in three more looks, making for a four-look 4×4×4 solve. First look was centres, second look was most of wings (gave up because I realised there was something wrong with my memo; luckily all of what I did recall+execute was correct), third look was corners and wings, fourth look was to notice that I did the very last edge comm the wrong way and so I redid that. There were five or so cycle breaks in the wings, which was kinda annoying and probably threw me off when I was memoing. A three-look solve is very doable if I don't mess up, but a two-look solve or even a full 4BLD success still seem quite distant.

I would advise you just do a full attempt as after a few it will seem quite manageable as the memo is equivalent to a 2.5 cube multi bld

So I just got a 8:04.06 4BLD PB !!
Memo was around 4 minutes, and everything went super fluid, so I'm really happy with that single !
Guess I'm getting ready for my next comp in october ;)

Wanted to post this reconstruction -- this solve was #8 in that 1:48 ao12 I posted yesterday

1:32 on 24 algs, with 47 memo and 45 exec. Thats my fastest ever time/alg in exec! I framecounted the exec as 45.3, so that's 1.89 time/alg, and after reconstructing I found it was 5.03 stps :D I think thats my first time getting over 5 stps in 4bld
