solving my cube
Qhorin on Youtube has some Roux tutorials, I don't know how good they are though (I only watched parts of them, back when I first started speedcubing).

I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix the "centers" of a 5x5 with "cut corners" or arrows such as those found in the gabbasoft program. I have found ways of solving all but the last one, which I have gotten down to this

/\ /\ /\
> /\ /\
/\ < /\

The rest of the cube is not solved, so i can mess edges/corners as much as needed, so long as it does't mess up any of the other centers. I tried the 4x4 method I found on these forums for this (slighly modified) and got it better, but this is as far as I could take it. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.

You have parity. Put center on U and do (r U2)*5. Then do a 3-cycle.

I really want to see a good waterman tutorial with algorithms that aren't from the 80s, and a better format (maybe a printable algorithm sheet too)

v-7 help

hey...i'm getting a v-7 sometime over the next week
does any1 know a site that teaches how to do it?
i can do these puzzles so far:
2x2
3x3
4x4
5x5(VERY beginners method)
and other non-cube ones(megaminx, pyraminx, etc)
so...even an example vid or pics going through one of their solves would be great
Thanks alot!

just as pcharles93 said. If you can do the 5x5 the you will be able to do the 7x7. It will just take longer to get the centers and everything else.

quintedges(5edges) lol
just, what order should i do them in
quick video would be greatly appreciated!
I don't have a 7x7 to show you in video, but here's the general idea. When I solved it, I figured it was easier to pair(match) from the outside in, so that the 2 outermost edges becomes paired. After that you should know how to solve it like a 5x5.

Edges are easy, it's the centers that are a bit awkward, or at least the last two. I have my own method which I figured out myself which is probably inefficient, but it gets the job done.

I will make a video tutorial for 7x7x7 this weekend, but I encourage you to figure it out yourself!

All the theory you should need is this: Solve it with any system that works on the 5x5x5. Reduction, Caging, Layer-by-Layer, etc all work "the same" as on a 5x5x5.

I will post the tutorial on my youtube-channel and link to it from the howto section of this forum. It should be up there on sunday evening at the latest.
