Step 4: Notation

In the image below, you will see the notation I will be using. It is standard 5x5 notation, as far as I know. If just the letter is there, turn the face denoted clockwise, if you are looking at that side
' means counter clockwise.

I always solve my cube white centers first, then yellow, and the rest vary. It might help to follow how I am solving it if you start on white, then go to yellow, and work with my sides.
Is there an algorithm for this?<br>
<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>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>can someone give me the alg for this, I can't find it <em>anywhere!! </em></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>
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'
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><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>
Thank you very much.
<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>
Ive completed all the centres - however the &quot;pairing&quot; stage is rather unclear and I dont get what is required. You say pair the edges like the photo but there are several photos and all of them have diffenrt edges lined up. Please could you clarify?<br>
Wow!!!!awesome guide
thaj
I solve in layers btw so this is all I have left to finish it
I can't get the algorithm for pairing the last 2 edges to work.
<p>I made IT!</p>
<p>how do you do the last corners after you do the edge pairing </p>
<p>also it wont let me watch the video </p>
<p>thanks</p>

<p>Great guide, helped me through a couple of algorithims I was having trouble with :) Finally solved it after 3 days. Cheers!</p>
<p>I got my 5x5 for $8.17 (9.32 CAD) </p><p>at amazon: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/ShengShou-5x5-Speed-Cube-Black/dp/B005PH2HTK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1417574523&sr=8-2&keywords=5x5+rubik" rel="nofollow">http://www.amazon.com/ShengShou-5x5-Speed-Cube-Bla...</a></p>
With the tredge pairing I have 2 Unsolved tredges but to solve them I have to switch the middle cubees, do you know how to fix this?
what do you mean by you can solve the cube like the 3x3 ?
<p>The wings and edges combine to be an edge, the corners are corners, the centers and crosses become the centers. Find another instructable on solving a 3x3. Start with the Beginner's Method and if you are interested enough work up to the Fridrich Method (for the 3x3).</p>
by solve the cube like the 3x3, I mean that you have to treat the groups of 3 edges as an edge piece on a normal rubik's cube. I could make a tutorial, but it would just add to the many that are here. The 3x3 center on the 5x5, you treat as the center of the cube. Then solve like as though the corners are corners on the 3x3 cube, and the three edges that are paired are like edges on the 3x3, and the 3x3 centers that are made are the centers.
So what he means is to solve the centers, make the 'tredges', and then solve it like a 3x3, except for some parities.
<p>sorry..step 9 is what does not work.</p>
