Hey, my friend introduced me to this method because he said it was a dead easy method of solving the 4x4, at first he said it was K4 but it is nothing like most of the descriptions found on the internet, so then i thought it was the cage method, but it seemed different from that too. here it is... (sorry if it seems more like a tutorial than an explaination)
1. Solve 2 opposite centers
2. Solve corners next to the 2 centers (so both sides have corners solved correctly.)
3. insert edges into one side first so that you have 3 edge pairs solved, leave the 4th pair open for now, then solve all 4 edge pairs on the opposite side.
4. pair the 2 reamining edges for the first side and insert them via 3-edge cycle.
5. Use commutators to solve the rest of edges and then the rest of centers

It would be great if someone could help me identify this method and i need some help with the commutators, with moving just 1 edge to pair up with another without messing up previous pairs, and how to pair edges directly opposite of each other. thank you :D

This is pretty cool. I may try to learn this method. Is it really fast compared to most other methods?

There's a reason why all the fast people use redux/redux variants...
Yes, it's because everybody's told "you must use redux you must use redux you must use redux" all the time :mad:
Sandwich is fast. If you like it, just go for it.

Yeah... I'm pretty sure it's possible to sub-45 with this method. Just wait until I get a Meffert's...
