Indeed 4LLL can mean any 4 looks to solve last layer to me, whether it's 2LOLL+2LPLL, 2LPLL+2LPOLL or anything with 4 looks. I don't think there is an official name for a method that goes "advanced cross, advanced F2L, 4LLL".What then do you want to call it? (Keep in mind that if you're being this much of a pedant about whether "CFOP" should still be applicable with 4LLL, for consistency's sake, you should also be enough of a pedant to be bothered by "4LLL" not implying anything about what the four looks actually are.)
No! Solving the last layer in 4 looks has nothing to do with O (for OLL) and P (for PLL). Even 2-look OLL and 2-look PLL are not OLL and PLL. This is definitely still beginner's method. I don't know OLL so I still use beginner's method (beginner's cross, intuitive F2L, 2-look OLL, PLL)Yes, there is. It's called CFOP
OLL (Orient Last Layer) is 1 step. PLL (Permute Last Layer) is 1 step. However 2-look OLL and 2-look PLL cannot be called OLL and PLL respectively, because they are done in 2 steps.2-look oll is still oll, it Orients the Last Layer. 2-look pll is still pll, it Permutes the Last Layer.
My bad 4 look last layer4-look OLL or 4-look last layer? If you mean 4-look OLL, I'm really not sure what that is, but it's probably not that good.
The general order people go about learning CFOP is first by learning 2-look OLL and 2-look PLL, then working on full PLL, and finally full OLL. Also, you should always be working on F2L as you progress.
Nah 4 look last layerDo you mean 2-look oll? If you're actually taking 4 steps to solve oll at your speed, that's super inefficient.

Learn F2L! The XG method was actually invented as a joke by Lucas Garron; it's not something anyone should use except as a transition to CFOP. I'd prioritize learning F2L over anything else, since F2L is something you should consistently be working on; it's not something you just learn and are done with. F2L really shouldn't be algorithmic. You should pretty much figure out each pair through intuition after learning the most basic F2L techniques.I'm a sub-25 3x3 cuber. I have been cubing for about 11 months. I use a method called XG that uses beginners first and second layers, but CFOP for cross, OLL and PLL. I have browsed YouTube for many videos on how to improve and they all suggest learning full PLL before anything else. I currently know all PLL's except the Aa, Ab, E, F, Ja, Ra, Rb, V and the G Perms. I would like to know which one of these I should learn first, and what cases will be the most useful in competition. I would also like to know what OLL cases would come in handy. Also, if you could include easy to learn F2L cases, that would greatly benefit my skills. Thank you for taking the time to read my post, please comment what you think. Thank you!
I agree with what @Aerma said above, but as a general rule I think skipping PLL is much better than skipping OLL. I'd definitely prioritize things like COLL and eventually ZBLL, but it is still useful to know the easy VLS/Winter Variation cases.I am currently learning full oll right now but after I want to know what to do next besides f2l so should I learn ZBLL or VLS because as far as I know if I do VLS than it will skip oll and I won't be able to do zbll and they both have around the same amount of algs to learn so I am just wondering which one I will chose.
