Yau Method is a 4x4 speedsolving method proposed by Robert Yau. It can also be applied to bigger cubes.


  • 1. Solve 2 opposite centers and 3 of the cross dedges
  • 2. Solve the remaining 4 centers
  • 3. Complete the cross
  • 4. Pair up the remaining dedges without messing up the cross
  • 5. Solve F2L + LL (3x3)


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


  • It can be hard to find the 3 first crossdedges
  • Centers are a little bit harder.
