Hello!

I would need some help with 5x5x5 blind. I now tried a few times and it comes down to the same problem, the end.

Memorisation works fine and execution also until the end...

I can't find help in any other post maybe because I solve in a bit of a funny order, but it works in my head.

Then I think of it as an extra 3x3x3 blind and I solve

But when I get parity I can't seem to use the algorithm that I use for 3x3x3...

When I solve the 3x3x3 I save the uneven last corner until the end, after I have done all edges and then I do,

U' F2 U M2 U' F2 U

But on the 5x5x5 it messes up the centers and also doing uneven corners switches the outer edges...

Oh, and I use the M2 for edges and for the corners I use Y-perm.

And in 4x4x4 if I do uneven number of corners I always do PLL parity algoritm to solve it. But that doesn't work on 5x5x5 either..

Does anyone have any suggestion? Or do I simply have to change order or method?

Thanks

Ps. Here's also a link to the end of the solve and you will see what happens. Except that there were now 2 corners wrong it would have been solved.
