Hoya Method is a 4x4 speedsolving method proposed by Jong-Ho Jeong. It can also be applied to bigger cubes. It's a sub-method of reduction (such as Yau).

Overview

  1. Do 2 opposite centers (not U/D ones).
  2. Solve D center and an adjacent one (not U).
  3. Solve the 4 dedges of the cross using the two scrambled centers (cross edge step).
  4. Finish cross and last two centers.
  5. Solve the remaining dedges.
  6. Solve as a 3x3x3 (Cross should already be done).
  7. Solve the 4x4x4 parities.

Pros

  • Easy edgepairing
  • Cross is already done when you start the 3x3 part

Cons

  • Centers are a little bit harder.

Notable users

  • Jong-Ho Jeong
  • Rudy Reynolds (uses K4 but is faster with Hoya)
  • Dylan Clark
