# solve the 4 by 4 rubiks cube ,Easy!

7 Steps
Lear how to solve the 4 by 4 rubiks cube as easy as tying a shoe. just not as fast lol

you should already know how to solve the Rubik's 3 by 3 before learning to solve the 4 by 4 but if you don't that's ok it will just take a lot longer to grasp.

all of the steps i tried to follow and i am failing miserably. i can get the centers and the 8 complete centers. but i dont know what to do to solve the other middle edges without messing it up. what do i need to do?

BTW, on the second pic, which color is the front face?
the_burrito_master (author) in reply to dkp0629Feb 13, 2010. 11:45 AM
It's yellow.... and it can be any color. I just chose that to be the front but you have to have the parts that need to be fixed in the exact spots they are in the pics.

Your steps for the second picture doesnt work, are you sure it is correct?

My record for the original rubik cube is 1 minute 40 seconds. I brought it to school and I amaze everyone I see except for the kid in my first period class who can solve it too.

I have a record of 50, but my friend has one of 20. I can't believe it, but I saw him do it. He said his oll and pll were fail. : o
tanmanknex in reply to ElectroinnovationJun 28, 2009. 3:43 PM
my record was 40 sec. my record now in the last week is 55 sec.
tanmanknex in reply to tanmanknexJun 28, 2009. 3:44 PM
correction, 1 min, 10 sec. that's really frustrating for me...

W00T 1 minute 30 seconds for me!!! I am by no means a speedcuber, but I do ok for myself!!!
tanmanknex in reply to duckythescientistAug 19, 2009. 9:02 PM
Good job! Just keep working at it, and maybe look up more algorithms online and you'll see your speeds shoot up! Or should I say down? Lol. ;D

Bet I could beat you... Me and you- cubeoff Between Spanish and Biology. after Christmas break. :P :D
Cubie2 in reply to tanmanknexDec 21, 2009. 7:48 PM
Wait tanman- did you fix yours? I thought it was broken.
Cubie2 in reply to Cubie2Dec 21, 2009. 7:50 PM
Oh never mind this was back in June and August. :P I want a mirror cube like you! that thing is wicked awesome!
prosper58 in reply to tanmanknexDec 17, 2009. 7:17 PM
Mine is 48 seconds. Since I'm from an area where everyone is easily amused, I 'm already famous at my school for being able to solve it. The other day I was solving it and four teachers were just staring the whole time.

all i can say is... SO AMAZING!!!!

ait culd also be red white blue in clockwise order on a reg rubik's cube

Looks like fun. I was able to solve the original one in like 7 minutes.
the_burrito_master (author) in reply to J-FiveJan 22, 2009. 8:12 PM
yeah it is. i can solve the 3 by 3 on average 2 minutes some times like 1 minute and 10 seconds.
Does Not Compute says: Jan 14, 2009. 7:44 PM
Oh yea, I use a different technique than you do, so I might make that an instructable. You use the reduction method, and I don't know what my method is called.
the_burrito_master (author) in reply to Does Not ComputeJan 15, 2009. 10:40 AM
How much differently can you solve it? i just solve it like a 3 by 3.
Does Not Compute in reply to the_burrito_masterJan 15, 2009. 11:04 AM
I start by getting a white center, then the yellow center. I then solve the white and yellow sides. After this, I solve the outer edges/wedges. After this, I have to just re align the center pieces. I then have it done, and it takes less time than doing the special moves. I only need to use the same algorithm to align all the centers. It's just how the alignment is, and I will make instructions this weekend.
the_burrito_master (author) in reply to Does Not ComputeJan 15, 2009. 8:48 PM
cool sounds very foreign to me.
Does Not Compute in reply to the_burrito_masterJan 18, 2009. 8:57 PM
It was foreign to me when I got my cube, and it is somewhat effective. You can solve a frame then fill centers, or get opposite centers, and then fill in the remaining centers after everything is aligned on the edge. It's kind of wierd
the_burrito_master (author) in reply to Does Not ComputeJan 20, 2009. 12:26 PM
yeah that avoids the special moves right? I heard of that I tried i once but failed. (with out knowing what to do)

Nice just 1 question. WHERE DO YOU GET THESE!
the_burrito_master (author) in reply to The JamalamDec 31, 2008. 11:51 AM
Ebay, Amazon ,Kmart Wall mart almost most anywhere. I also have a 5 by 5 and I solved it 4 times now.
Does Not Compute in reply to the_burrito_masterJan 2, 2009. 3:24 PM
5x5 is slightly easier than 4x4. I got my 4x4 last year, and two 5x5s this year. It takes about 10 minutes to solve the 5x5 (I just got one for christmas). I'm going to make a guide, using my Rubiks 5x5, and then use my Eastsheen for speed.
the_burrito_master (author) in reply to Does Not ComputeJan 2, 2009. 9:12 PM
Oh man I was going to do the 5 by 5 instructable. :( yeah me too I love how I can solve it almost faster than the 4 by 4. I have a little trouble with the centers sometimes. pssst... I don't know the special moves for the 4by 4 I just pop out the peaces wen I get them and don't want to look them up.
Does Not Compute in reply to the_burrito_masterJan 3, 2009. 1:45 PM
Although my 4x4 solution is different, I'm guessing your method in 5x5 is the same as the 4x4? I got mine at christmas, and I'm already down to 7 minutes. Thats using beginner method for the 3x3 style solve. By the way, learning the moves is more impressive than popping out centers. Eastsheen is good for speed, but rubiks is good for quality and low light. What program is that rendered in? My instructable only used 1 virtual cube photo, and it has a photo of me solving it. It'll be up by the end of the day, I think.
the_burrito_master (author) in reply to Does Not ComputeJan 3, 2009. 8:03 PM
the program is true space 6.6. yeah it's about the same. wow that's fast after I learn the special moves for the 5x5 I'll be able to do it in around 10 mins.

the_burrito_master: There is an easier algorithm than the first one you have in step 6. It's going to be on my 5x5 tutorial, but you need to put the two cubies you are going to switch on the same layer. Then, in your notation, it's: (Ll)' T2 (Ll)' T2 F2 (Ll)' F2 (Rr) T2 (Rr)' T2 (Ll)2 Official notation: (Ll)' U2 (Ll)' U2 F2 (Ll)' F2 (Rr) U2 (Rr)' U2 (Ll)2
Does Not Compute says: Jan 2, 2009. 3:33 PM
By the way, sometimes, instead of T or t, the letters are U or u. Its on some pictures, and some algorithms you have in your instructable, but not mentioned in there anywhere. I do mine with a different method, but this is pretty good.

cool even though my brother forced me to write this LoL 5*s
