Picture of How to solve a 5 by 5 by 5 Rubik's Cube
In this Instrucable you'll learn how to solve the 5 by 5 by 5 rubiks cube. First I wanted to say, that I'm german, so f I have any spellingmistakes please tell me. I also wanted to say that I invented all movements at my one exept of the special case.

Step 1: Before you begin

Picture of Before you begin
Before begin Fning you should know what the movments mean. If there are only the letters turn it clockwise, if there is the letter and ' turn counterclockwise. The directions "FC", "SC" and "UC" will come with arrows (→↓←t)

Step 2: Scramble

Step 3: Center cross

It's finally time to start! Just follow the pics.
The algorythmus for the first pic is:
Uu' FC←  Uu
The algorythmus of the second pic is:

Step 4: Compleating the centers

Now you'll complete the centers.
The algorythmus of the first pic is:
Ff d f'
The algorythmus of the second pic is :
Rr' d' r
The algorythmus of the third pic is:
r' d2 r d Rr' d' r

Step 5: The "Diament"

Now you'll solve the center edgepieces of the first layer.
The algorythmus of the first pic is:
The algorythmus of the second pic is:
The algorythmus of the third pic is:
U' FC← U
The algorythmus of the fourth pic is:

Step 6: The fat cross

Now you'll make a fat cross
The algorythmus of the first pic is:
d F d' F'
The algorythmus of the second pic is:
u' F' u2 F
The algorythmus of the third pic is:
F u F'
The algorythmus of the fourth pic is:
F' d F D l D' l' F d' F'
The algorythmus of the fifth pic is:
d' L' d L
The algorythmus of the sixth pic is:
u L u2 L'
The algorythmus of the seventh pic is:
F' d' F
The algorythmus of the eighth pic is:
F d' F' D' r' D r F' d F

Step 7: Finishing the first layer

It's time to finish the first layer.
The Algorythmus for the first pic is:
F D F'
The Algorythmus for the second pic is:
L' D' L
The Algorythmus for the third pic is:
L' D2 L D L' D' L

isn't layer by layer allot slower than finishing the centers, then doing the edges and then solving it like a 3x3x3? i can solve it in about 4-5 minutes using that method, how fast is this method?

Sorunome (author)  knex akbar8 months ago
I can solve it in 5 min with this method, too.
Also keep in mind that I am presenting the method I invented on my own, rather than somebody elses method I read online.

When i first got my 5x5x5 I tried to solve it on my own without any help but i was only able to solve the first 3 layers and some bits of the 4th layer.

that looks hard... very hard... oooh thats what she said!!!

That's nothing in comparris to the 6 by 6 by 6 cube!
