anyone familiar with this 4x4 method? anyway i'm looking into this and actually trying this out. F3L is really really easy but I got really confused about which algorithms to use for which case when it comes to last layer. step 7 at http://blue.kracknet.net/~snkenjoi/k4/ gives a list of a bunch of 3-cycle algs and things of that sort however i don't know how to use them since there is nothing said about which pieces move where. anyone know how to???

K4 can be very fast. One of my friends used it for 4x4 and can do a sub 1:10 avg with it, and he also used a K4 "hybrid" method he made for 5x5 and can avg around 2:00.

anyway, as far as the last layer, it is pure commutators. If you know how to use them, it will become easy with practice. If you don't, I'd suggest learning. As far as the algs listed on the K4 site, I'd suggest doing them in reverse to see what it will fix, etc.
