I got a 5x5 cube recently, and learned how to do it by only learning a few algorithms.

In order for you to be able to finish the cube, you will need to be able to solve a 3x3 cube, but being able to solve a 4x4 cube would also enhance your abilities for it, since the algorithms can be used on both.

If anything is unclear, just ask and I can clarify it for you
Please note:
1. This is a LONG INSTRUCTABLE. It will take time and effort to get through this cube, and you need to have some free time to solve your cube.
2. I am Canadian, so deal with the u in colour.
3. I am assuming you have a 5x5 cube. If you do not, they cost up to $40 CAD, so be prepared to spend a little bit of money on it.

Step 1: My collection/experience

I started cubing over the summer of 2007. I got a dollar store "magic" cube, which was a cheap Rubik's cube. It came with instructions, which I memorized, and have now fine tuned so I can solve my cube with a 12 cube average of 51 seconds.

I can solve all the puzzles you see here, no instructions.
I found out how to do this by watching a long youtube video tutorial about how to solve this, and read some text instructions. I have 2 5x5 cubes, a few 3x3 cubes, and the 4x4 cube.
<p>I'm 9 and I can do a 3x3 in 1 minute 6 seconds ( my record). My friend (9) can do it in 53 seconds!</p>
<p>lol im 12 and i can solve a 3x3 with 26 sec average...................</p>
<p>lol im 15 and i can solve a 3x3 with a 17 sec average...................</p>
<p>my best is now 10 seconds :)</p><p>just turned 13</p>
<p>Lol I'm 3 and can do a 7x7 in a nanosecond.</p>
That is unrealistic and moving that fast would destroy every particle even past the bone structure. Also around age 5 is when humans begin to develop advanced comprehensive capabilities but yet need to develop further to be able to understand and solve puzzles like the 3x3 and so on. Therefore, your argument is highly invalid
I am 21 and pay no attention to those other people, they are the type of people that try to put others down because they cant accept that you may be better than them at a younger age. That is a solid record and as time goes you will get faster and more efficient. Keep at it. Try doing some other harder puzzles it provides a decent challenge and can be fun
After solving the whole cube....i got this parity...how to solve this parity...i found nowhere on the internet....3x3 cube don't have this parity....
It is the yellow edge parity look it up for the four by four it is the same algorithm
I tried for my own with a different strategy...<br>Can you help me to fix that last row?<br>Everything else ist already done...
What about this, I think something happened to my cube
<p>I did it! I just needed help solving the centers. I can solve a 4x4. Oh, and I don't need the edges parity. I know how to deal with that one so I won't run into it.:)</p>
<p>can someone give me the alg for this, I can't find it <em>anywhere!! </em></p>
That Mate is not a parity. Its just a simple cross case. <br>Holding the L shape with one yellow edge at the backa and one to the left do this algorithm.<br>F U R U' R' F'
<p>how do u solve the 5 x 5</p>
<p>Didn't it just say?</p>
thank you so much! I feel really dumb now! I thought it was like the 4x4, and The cross was pre solved!
Curious what cube that is. Is it a Moyu? <br>I use the Moyu Bochuang GT. Really nice puzzle. I average under 2:40... Need more work on my solving.
<p>It is a Yuxin. </p>
Just curious at to what cube that is... Is it a Yuxin? I use a Moyu Bochuang and average under 2:40... Need more mork lol.
<p>It is not a parity.Use the cross alg of beginners method and solve it like a normal 3x3</p>
<p>you can do F sexy, sexy F' or you can do U2 M' U M U2 M' U M</p>
<p>you can do F sexy, sexy F' or you can do U2 M' U M U2 M' U M</p>
<p>I have a PLL parity does anyone know the algorithm for this</p>
How can i solve this?
<p>With the Green is F (your pic), turn your cube to the left 90 degrees, use ( U'u' R F' U R F Uu) (Dd R F' U R F D'd')</p>
Guys i need help
<p>I have a problem with mine,i was matching the edges and i have all my edges matched except 2 centre pieces</p>
Is there an algorithm for this?<br>
http://www.alchemistmatt.com/cube/5by5cube.html. <br><br>They have here all for it.
Not any that I know of. You'll have to redo the edges, so that's why I don't solve the 5x5 cube. You have to exposition edges A LOT.
Reposition not Exposition
<p>If he didn't cover this notation above, a letter that is not capotal means turn the second layer.</p><p>l U2 l U2 F2 l F2 r U2 r' U2 l2. Did that help?</p>
<p>I have same cube as you, you can take off stickers</p>
Yes there is....
<p>then what is it?</p>
<p>I can't find any alga for 4x4 oll and pll parties.</p><p>Plz help.</p>
Flip dredge= r' U2 l F2 l'F2 r2 U2 r U2 r' U2 F2 r2 F2. <br><br>Opposite dredge swap=<br>r2 U2 r2 Uu2 r2 u2 <br><br>Adjacent dredge swap =<br>r2 U2 r2 Uu2 r2 u2
<p>Please Help!</p><p>I am trying to solve the 5x5 and I have solved the centers and edges but I am getting tredge parity where I need to flip a tredge. Can someone please share the algorithm? I tried some of the algorithms below but couldn't. Btw, what does 'x' mean in the algorithm?</p>
<p>Just do F sexy F' U2 F sexy, sexy F'. </p><p>An X means do the whole cube R'</p>
<p>edit: x means do R not R'</p>
<p>First of all, you need to orient and permutate the last layer like on a three by three. since you did not occur an edge parity, you cannot get permutation parities because it is a 5x5. X means X inverted, which means turn the entire cube clockwise.</p>
Thank you very much.
Thank you.
<p>I can do it on a 4x4, not a 5x5. Algorithm for 4x4: r2 B2 U2 l U2 r' U2 r U2 F2 r F2 l' B2 r2</p>
Thank you very much. I can do 5x5 now. I appreciate your help.
<p>does it work on 5x5? ps I'm same person as noseypoos, forgot my password #lol</p>
<p><em>This </em>doesn't compute!</p>
Whenever you have the three edge pieces in the middle, ( when they all have the same two colors on them) and the outer two are facing one way and the middle one is facing the other way, and all the other edges are solved and facing the same way, what do you do?
<p>search 5x5 parity and find the corresponding alg</p>
