Learn the reduction method first. Try this guide.So I've begun to use Roux for 3x3 speedsolving. Now that I have a WeiSu on the way, I guess it's time I started to learn how to solve a 4x4... What method would ultimately be the fastest (even if it's kind of a step away from block building type stuff) and/or best for me to learn?
In Yau4 you solve first 2 centres, first 3 cross edges, last 4 centres, last cross edge and then the rest of edges (normally 3-2...) followed by 3x3What is the difference between the YauX-s? (Yau4, Yau5, Yau6, etc.)
What is the difference between the YauX-s? (Yau4, Yau5, Yau6, etc.)
With the 4x4 the edges are paired with the 3-2-3 method, as lookahead is just great with it. Basically after the last cross edge you slice the cube, pair 3 edges, slice back. Then you pair 2 edges and lastly what remains. You can often get lucky with this method and end up having to pair less that 8 pairs.Is there any reason steps 5-8 of Yau5 wouldn't also work well for 4x4?
Many of the fastest cubers right now are using Yau method for 4x4.So I've begun to use Roux for 3x3 speedsolving.

Thanks. Currently I pair 2222 filling the first 2 into the blind spots. I was just curious as to whether solving those as F2L pairs earlier might be better, but I can see now that it wouldn't.in 4x4, it is much easier to pair edges, just misalign an inner slice, and we can pair 3 edges. Moreover, 2 of the 3 edges automatically fill the blind spot in 2 pair chain solving. In 5x5, there is no efficient way to pair 2 edges to fill the blindspot.
there are 3 inner edge pieces that have extra things on them to keep the core in alignment, mack sure they all go around 1 cornerI'm trying to reassemble my WitTwo, but one of the axises always gets caught on something after I assemble it. I've tried a few times and never had any success. What am I doing wrong?
People create their own order for PLL time attacks based on how well algs flow into each other. Also, relatively bad algs are usually first so that you can end with your fastest algs. People don't intentionally make an order that results in a solved cube (at least I don't)Does anyone have a good order for PLL time attacks? Like one that returns the cube to a solved state when you do all 21 PLLs?
I use an order that returns the cube to solved after every 3 PLLs, at the cost of a few inserted AUFs. It's posted here somewhere, try the search function.Does anyone have a good order for PLL time attacks? Like one that returns the cube to a solved state when you do all 21 PLLs?
Be patient. Contact them and ask.How much longer can I expect shipping to take from fasttech.com if I received a shipping confirmation email ("Order number blahblahblah has shipped!") on September 17th, but didn't pay the extra dollar or so to get faster shipping? It shipped via "International Airmail." Destination is Georgia.
EDIT: According to this, http://support.fasttech.com/FAQ/what-are-the-supported-shipping-methods, it should take no longer than 30 business days. 30 business days from September 17th was today...
