Alright, so I have a plan to be able to solve 4x4 OLL in 1-2 steps:
1. Recognize the case (parity or non)
2 Step 1: Solve Oll, or do set-up case Step Two (if there is parity) solve parity, (then undo setup, if done.

Basically, I will need to be able to recognize 172 cases for Oll on 4x4. Here's how I worked it out:
I know some cross oll parity cases for 4x4 already. For L shapes and Line shapes, there are 3 possible edges that can flip before the L/Line case becomes a cross case; and 4 different cases for each dot oll case before it becomes a cross case. So (30*3) + (12*3) + (7*2) + (8*4) is equal to 172. Of course many cases will end up having the same case, so the number will go down. Maybe I just have to learn half of what I said if half, or a quarter, or whatever; is oll, and the rest is oll parity cases
Aside from the 57 usual OLL cases, there are only 54 OLL cases that have OLL parity.

I don't know if anyone's got an up-to-date list of algs for those, but here's one by TDM.

Yesterday my intended progression thread got moved to 2x2 help thread, so here is my progression thread.
Yesterday I started by going and learning some Cll algorithms for last layer. I know H and Sune now (and can recognize each case), and plan on learning Asune and T

I posted this in my profile, but here it is, more public:
So, I am doing this exercise for Civil Air Patrol, where I practice goal setting. I made this example for cubing.
Dream: be the national record holder for 2x2 average.
Goal: Average sub-1 for 2x2
Steps(backwards, so end step to start step): Learn how to one-look>Learn full EG>Learn Eg-2, Eg-1, and Cll and get good at them.
Not exactly word from word, but I changed it to make more sense for a cubing progression

My YJ MGC just broke… I hate this!!! Why does this happen to me? Every puzzle I actually start to like… breaks!
That's a big disappointment.

If your 3x3 ever gives out you can always try the MS, it's never let me down, it's never gave me up, it's never ran around or deserted me

It will never make you cry
never gonna say goodbye
never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

I've used the MS for so long
Your hearts been aching but your to shy to say it
Inside we both know what's been going on
We know the cube and we're gonna main it
And if you ask me how I'm feeling
Don't tell me you're to BLD to see

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you

Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you
