In this tutorial, I will show how to solve the 4x4 Rubik's Revenge cube. We must first place centers (no algorithm needed), then pair each individual edge (one short algorithm because of parity). After that, the cube is very similar to solving a 3x3. In this video, I first give an introduction into the 4x4 cube and explain what we will need to accomplish before we can actually start to solve the cube. I also go over the notation we will need to become familiar with when performing given algorithms and then start to show you how to position/solve the six 'centers' of the cube. (NOTE* If you do not want to watch the introduction and notation, you can fast forward to 2:55 where I begin going over the centers*) The three main things we will be doing are: 1) Making 2x1 blocks within the center regions of the cube 2) Combining two 2x1 blocks to form a 2x2 center block 3) Adding a single center component to a 3 piece L. *NOTE* to do this, I recommend having the single center piece either in the lower left or lower right region and positioning the corner of the L (see video*) in the same location as that single piece. *NOTE* A good way to pick three centers to place in a clockwise direction (If you don't want to use red/white/blue) is to look at any corner on the cube and place the three centers in the same orientation/position as the colors on the corner. You do not have to worry about the corner when placing centers, you would just be using it to pick those three colors only. PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK AND/OR COMMENTS ON THE TUTORIAL VIDEOS OR SEND ME A MESSAGE AND I WILL ANSWER AS SOON AS I CAN (USUALLY WITHIN A DAY OR TWO)! I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR IF IT IS HELPING PEOPLE OUT.

2) This is a tutorial on how to pair the edges of the 4x4 to eventually convert the 4x4 into what resembles a mixed up 3x3. We will have to know how to position edges opposite from one another and with switched orientations (colors on the same face). The algorithm we will use for this step is: (Dd) R F' U R' F (Dd)' *NOTE* In my video, I was a little ambiguous/unclear on how to position the last two pairs of edge pieces before performing the above algorithm. When I said we "need the same color on the same face".. I meant to say "both identical pairs of edges should have the same color on the same face as its complementary piece and be situated in the same layer as well".. I believe that the example in the cube cleared it up, but I just wanted to put it here too in case someone actually reads all this :-) This algorithm will be used to fix the remaining 2 pairs of edges. You may not have to even use this algorithm depending on how you match the last pairs of edges. IF YOU FIND THIS TUTORIAL HELPFUL PLEASE COMMENT. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF PEOPLE FOUND THE VIDEO HELPFUL.

In my tutorial, I will teach you how to solve a Rubik's Cube (regular 3x3)using 7 steps, which I explain in detail. My videos are longer than others you may find, but I feel that by spending more time with you for each step, you will understand it better than if I rush through it like those other videos. I taught quite a few people this method in college, and also family members and friends who were able to solve it relatively quickly once they understood the method. Once you have memorized the algorithms and also understand the method I use, you can solve the cube in ABOUT 1-2 MINUTES WITH PRACTICE. This is the first step of the Tutorial for solving the cube. THE SECOND STEP IS ON MY CHANNEL PLAYLIST AND ALSO IN THE VIDEO RESPONSES SECTION OF THIS VIDEO. It involves first placing four white edge pieces around the yellow center piece. You must then match each individual edge piece with its side color and flip it until it is matched with both the white and side colors. *If you are HAVING DIFFICULTY getting the four white edge pieces around the yellow center, please SEE MY Step 1 b video, which gives further examples which should prove to be useful and give extra help. Also, please do not ever hesitate to ask me ANY questions at all about the cube or if you have any comments or problems. I am ALWAYS glad to help. If you are using this method, I can GUARANTEE that I can explain and help you with anything you need to know as long as you provide me the information about your cube. Send long questions to my inbox and I will definitely get back to you A.S.A.P. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A 4X4 OR 5X5 TUTORIAL, LOOK NO FURTHER! CHECK OUT MY TUTORIALS ON MY CHANNEL PLAYLIST BY CLICKING ON MY NAME OR GOING TO WWW.YOUTUBE.COM/ROBH0629 As always, my tutorials are detailed and beginner friendly!! Thanks! I would like to thank Lars Petrus and also Tyson Mao along with Jessica Fridrich for allowing me to visualize the cube in a totally new way. My method basically incorporates strategies and techniques in both Tyson Mao's and also Lars Petrus' methods, basically making my method unique in itself. My method has been able to help numerous people solve their cubes, along with some family members and personal friends of mine, so I know it can work for you too! Any questions, please don't hesitate to inquire or leave comments on any steps which may have given you trouble.

This is Fran Shes s a 4 by 4 Shes a little bit bigger But not as big as Reptar Sometimes they both fight So I have to break it up. But thats not so important Hey look a banana! I can solve Jamal In a matter of seconds But I never solved Fran Shes a 4 By 4! I only solved one side But that never will count I guess I have to say This is my Rubiks Cube! Blue side Red side Yellow side Green side White side Orange side This is my Rubiks cube Mix it all up And Ill solve it again!

Give me 28 seconds and the cube will be solved Dont believe me? What now? When Im bored, I go and solve my Rubiks cube Its the best thing in the whole entire world Turning each side until you get a color Its loads of fun for only a Dollar Its the funnest thing that you will ever do Its even more fun than tying your shoe I sometimes like to play with this green bouncy ball Bouncy ball or Rubiks cube My bouncy ball is green!! They say if you could solve any type Rubiks cube youre considered to be a really smart person! I think Im smart in school But my grades do not agree But when I found a Rubiks cube My smartness came to life! Blue side Red side Yellow side Green side White side Orange side This is my Rubiks cube Mix it all up And Ill solve it again! Just dont mess me up Ill get really mad Two plus Three equals Rubiks Cube You got to be smart to solve the Rubiks cube But if you get mad and throw my Rubiks cube You most likely will shatter my life So now that youve learned about Fran and Jamal You now know my whole life story about Rubiks cubes I really recommend going out and getting one Once you learn it, youll get addicted and have lots of fun A Rubiks cube is like a dog You got to take care of it But you could also have lots of fun with it too! Just remember one thing, Go Solve your Rubiks cube cause If Arnold can do it, so can you! Blue side Red side Yellow side Green side White side Orange side This is my Rubiks cube Mix it all up And Ill solve it again! Just dont mess me up Ill get really mad Two plus Three equals Rubiks Cube You got to be smart to solve the Rubiks cube But if you get mad and throw my Rubiks cube I will go to the jungle and kidnap a gorilla Thanks!

A basic tutorial on using Cube Explorer to create your own custom algs for different 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube patterns. ** NOTE **: I forgot to say in the video that in order to grey-out a cube square and make it undefined you right-click. I do this several times in the video but neglected to say what I'm doing - all I'm doing is right clicking the cube squares to get them undefined (grey). REMEMBER: you have to leave one piece, for example both sides of the white/red edge piece, grey'd out in order to get the multiple alg window when solving. If the cube is fully defined (no grey) then you will only get one alg in the main window. Cube Explorer from: http://kociemba.org/cube.htm There are lots more features to the software that I don't cover here. Shout out to: http://www.masterthecube.com go there :)

Ever since Hans Peter Schmidt had a passionate interest in the study of 3D forms and in exploring the hidden possibilities of combinations of forms and material in theory and practice. Back in 1981 he was the youngest Rubik Cube solver ever (7 years old). Although he often did the Cube, he could not explain how. Later (at the age of 12) it was him, who found out that the number of different unsolved configurations that can be reached on the original Rubik's Cube is a prime number. Now lay back and watch this guy as he solves one Rubik Puzzle after the other... Directed by Alexandra Rothert

This step goes over the remaining 2 parity error cases (*There are really 3 more, but we basically skip the corners parity error when using my Step 6 algorithm) that you may see when solving the 4x4 and also shows how to solve the 4x4 as a 3x3 cube thus allowing you to finish solving the cube completely! **IMPORTANT** FOR MOST OF THE 3X3 ALGORITHMS, THERE ARE CERTAIN WAYS YOU MUST POSITION THE CUBE BEFORE YOU PERFORM THE ALGORITHM. I DO NOT GO INTO DETAIL ON HOW TO PERFORM THESE MOVES AND SO HAVE INCLUDED THE STEPS IN THE 3X3 TUTORIAL WHICH CORRESPOND TO THESE MOVES. PLEASE SEE MY 3X3 TUTORIAL FOR MORE DETAILS IF YOU ARE HAVING DIFFICULTY USING MY ALGORITHMS. THANK YOU! *NOTE* If you do NOT use my 3x3 method to solve the 4x4, you may come across a FOURTH parity error. This error affects the position and/or orientation of the top CORNER pieces. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is use the algorithm I have listed below and also demonstrated in THIS tutorial...the one that corresponds to STEP 6 of my 3x3 tutorial. That algorithm to CORRECT CORNER PARITY is R' F R' B2 R F' R' B2 R2 That will CORRECT any CORNER parity case you may have. If you are UNSURE of how to use that algorithm exactly, please see my step 6 of my 3x3 tutorial. Algorithms (IN ORDER): Interchanging the two parity cases you see before finishing the top face (from step 4 of 3x3 tutorial). *If you have the 2x3 block, you want to hold it horizontally so that the 2x3 is all the way to the LEFT on the TOP face (see video*)- Orienting Last Layer (OLL) F U R U' R' F' ____________________________________________ Flipping over the top edge piece (the second PARITY case we see)*Hold the flipped edge pair on the FRONT face in the TOP middle edge pair position (see video*)- Orienting the Last Layer (OLL) - **ONLY SEEN IN 4X4 and also 5x5 cubes** (Rr)2 B2 U2 (Ll) U2 (Rr)' U2 (Rr) U2 F2 (Rr) F2 (Ll)' B2 (Rr)2 ____________________________________________ Finishing the top face (3x3 tutorial step 5)- Orienting the Last Layer (OLL) R U R' U R U2 R' ____________________________________________ Positioning Top Corners (3x3 tutorial step 6)- Permuting Last Layer (PLL)***IMPORTANT NOTE*** THIS MOVE ALSO CORRECTS ANY CORNER PARITY ERROR YOU HAVE. If you are unsure of exactly how to use it, please see my step 6 of my 3x3 tutorial. You basically just have to find two corners which have the same color on the same face and set that face as your BACK** If you don't have two corners next to each other that have the same color, then ANY face can be the BACK**** R' F R' B2 R F' R' B2 R2 ____________________________________________ Last PARITY Case (flipping two opposite top layer edge pairs) - Permuting Last Layer (PLL)- **ONLY SEEN IN 4X4 ALSO** r2 U2 r2 (Uu)2 r2 (Uu)2 U2 ____________________________________________ Allan (Fixing the top layer edges - might not need to perform this move, 3x3 tutorial step 7)- Permuting Last Layer (PLL) L2 U' B F' L2 B' F U' L2

CONGRATULATIONS! You made it! This is the last part and if you got here, you've done a great job! ALGORITHMS ----------------- 1) Ri, U, Fi, Ui 2) Ri, Di, R, D 3) Going Right - U, R, Ui, Ri, Ui, Fi, U, F Going Left - Ui, Li, U, L, U, F, Ui, Fi 4) F, R, U, Ri, Ui, Fi 5) R, U, Ri, U, R, U, U, Ri 6) U, R, Ui, Li, U, Ri, Ui, L 7) Ri, Di, R, D (Same as #2) Reminder again: If you are messing up when using algorithm #7, you are probably mixing up the "down inverted" and "down." If I say "down," I want you to literally tilt the cube up so that the down side is facing you, and then turn it clockwise. If I say "down inverted," then face the down side and turn it Counter-Clockwise. If thats not the reason, make sure you are actually completing the entire algorithm. For example, if you're doing the algorithm and you finally get the blue to show up on top, don't forget to complete the ENTIRE algorithm and complete the "down" step. i.e. Maybe you're doing "Ri, Di, R" and then you see the blue and you stop? But you must continue and do the "Down" step, and then move on to the next corner. Or else you will mess up the cube. Alternatively, and more easily, you can and should use the finger flicks because it's much easier to remember the motions that way. Again, congratulations if you solved the rubik's cube for the first time! If you have any questions on ANY specific part of the cube or if I went too fast on some parts and you want some clarification, please don't hesitate to leave a comment or even message me personally to my inbox, and I will be glad to help!

Hey guys! Here's part 2. For Algorithm #3, I apologize for going so fast, but just use the right or left algorithm and you should be fine. If you have any questions about the algorithms, or if you just completely do not understand what to do with the algorithms, please ask me and I'll help you, guaranteed. Remember: If you are messing up when using algorithm #2, you are probably mixing up the "down inverted" and "down." If I say "down," I want you to literally tilt the cube up so that the down side is facing you, and then turn in clockwise. If I say "down inverted," then face the down side and turn it Counter-Clockwise. Or, more conveniently, use the finger flick method that I showed you. ALGORITHMS ----------------- 1) Ri, U, Fi, Ui 2) Ri, Di, R, D 3) Going Right - U, R, Ui, Ri, Ui, Fi, U, F Going Left - Ui, Li, U, L, U, F, Ui, Fi 4) F, R, U, Ri, Ui, Fi 5) R, U, Ri, U, R, U, U, Ri 6) U, R, Ui, Li, U, Ri, Ui, L 7) Ri, Di, R, D (Same as #2)
