# What Method is this?

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

That sounds like K4 to me.

EDIT: I meant Sandwich.

thanks

thanks for the link, that seems to be exactly what i was looking for, the algs should help with the last 4 edges

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...

Well I didnt know this

I love cubing but do it for fun so I am not too educated.

Yes, it's because everybody's told "you must use redux you must use redux you must use redux" all the time
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...
