Getting the hang of 5bld finally.
12:34[6:39] PB.

Fastest memo ever and exec is meh. Can't really do much about exec besides turning faster but that will cause issues so I'll hold out until I'm better at controlling my turning. X center memo was very short tho so it played a role but the + centers were average (and I usually suck at them) so I'm happy. Didn't record tho but whatever. First 6bld attempt on Weekly Comp starting next week, hope to compete each week until I get a success then try and compete often as possible. Using U2 r2 OP but yeah, I don't know 3 style and I have wanted to do 6bld for some while, figured out comms for D layer targets that work so yeah.

Learned the 3BLD method on Sunday. Yesterday, I tried very slowly on edge swaps and corner swaps separately, and it worked (took me almost an hour in total)! Today on my bus to work, I tried memorizing both at the same time but failed. On the way back I finally got it right! It just took me a long time (~20 mins mem + ~8 mins exec) to solve it but I am so happy! I think I will start to do more, and record myself!

Congrats on the first solve! Huge milestone :)

I did my first 4BLD attempt recently. Let me know how good you would say the end result is for a first attempt.
I am quite sure I only made one mistake, which is memorizing one extra center, causing parity (U2) and messing up wings and corners.

yeah that is good and it was a fast time for your first attempt
I have not yet got a success but have had a few close ones and all my attempts have been slower than that
I went very slow on the memo; it could have been like 3x faster if I wanted LOL, but I took it slow because why rush on a first attempt. My 2nd attempt was very close: 3 cycle on centers and 2 corners remaining
I hope you'll get a success soon!

(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
