Learn how to solve the 4x4x4 Rubik’s Revenge Cube easily. the 4×4 Rubik’s revenge is very similar to it and requires only few more algorithms to learn. The You CAN Do the Rubiks Cube Program objective is to share the secrets of solving the Rubiks Cube with youth and to also encourage them to help others to . This page attempts to list move optimal algorithms for every common form of parity encountered in popular 4x4x4 (Rubik’s Revenge) solving.

Wiki tools Special pages. There are links to either forum posts or video URLs in the right-most column of many “algorithm bars”. However, you can often reach a position which seems like it is in your subset, but which is 4s4x4 not, and to solve the puzzle you have to briefly go agorithms your constrained set of moves to bring the puzzle back into the subset you want.
The shortest and well-known n x n x n cube odd parity fix which preserves the colors of the centers is r U2 4 r 13,9. The “w” is short for “wide”.
Solving your Rubik’s Revenge (4x4x4)
The remaining PLL parity cases which involve the fewest number of pieces besides the most popular case above are the following. Since all OLL parity algorithms contain an odd number of inner slice quarter turns, one can technically fix any 4x4x4 wing edge odd parity case by executing a single slice quarter turn and then resolve the cube using an even number of inner slice quarter turns.
For example, the second 15 BHTM algorithm mentioned above could be expressed later on this page with the following algorithm algorithhms, since all of its inner slice turns can be made wide hence the “Y” instead of an “N” and its first and last moves can be wide and still solve the pure dedge flip case hence why the alogrithms begins and ends with Rw2 instead of r2. It is also clearly not a speedsolving algorithm as “Lucas Parity” is.
The problem is that we no longer have a third unmatched pair to realign the centres with. Besides containing case images and algorithms for reduction parity cases, aogorithms page also contains odd parity cases which can technically be used to pair dedges, since they permute wing edges in a manner which separates wing edges in the same dedge from each other.
Here’s one video tutorial that illustrates the typical process. You might be lucky when you have finish pairing the third last pair with the final two pairs being matched when the centres are realigned, however, this is less likely than still having to match them.
4x4x4 parity algorithms
Tom Rokicki and Ed Trice. You need to place a matching colour pair on different layers but on the same face of the cube in the configuration displayed here on the right. Not logged in Create account Log in. Although the third column in the majority of the algorithm bars on this page is blank, when it is not blank, it is either an algorithm name given by the algorithm author or an algorithm label for organizational or classification purposes.
Finally, one of the simplest OLL parity more specifically, a double parity algorithms found in December of to remember also consists of a short repeated sequence:.
So you will need to learn the next algorithm to pair the last two unpaired edge sets. See the Algorithmd Parity section for details.
The last pair to be solved are placed on ether side of the front face. The creation of a symmetrical algorithm requires one to confront the question “how can I change what I have into what I want it to be?
Algorithms with fewer BHTM are listed first in each category. This page will keep strong focus on reduction parity OLL parity and PLL parity cases, but it will also include a limited number of other parity situations which are also common in other solving methods, as well as cases which share some characteristics with reduction parity algorithms.
This parity situation can be transformed into 21 other last layer forms of what is commonly called PLL parity by performing a 3x3x3 PLL and adjusting the upper face AUF as needed. They are called “2 2-cycles” for short. Similar to doing an inner slice quarter turn like r to technically fix the single dedge flip parity, an inner slice half turn such as r2 is technically all that is needed to fix PLL parity.
For the purpose of this exercise we will use the red and green edges.
Note that with many algorithms, it’s not “all or nothing”. More will be explained about what other pieces of information in the algorithm bar above mean later. Pairing the Edges The first part of this process, as with the centres, is more about seeing what qlgorithms happening rather than learning algorithms.
They also happen to be supercube safe.
How to Solve a 4×4 Cube- The Rubik’s Revenge
In addition to the fact that all parity cases on this page are each represented by a case image, The number of moves an algorithm contains in these two big cube move metrics is written next to them in the form of the ordered pair, BQTM, BHTM. Besides the notes mentioned already about what types of algorithms are contained within this page, including some of the specific common characteristics they share, this section touches on how they “look” and “feel” when they are displayed in notation and executed on a cube, respectively.
However, this PDF includes all cases and relatively short algorithms to solve each one directly. We can break up this algorithm as f f r E E r E E r f f to count 4 f’s and 3 r’s. This is especially common if two algorithms are in a different move set consist only of certain types of turns.
Your browser does not support script. However, many who solve the 5x5x5 Rubik’s cube using some variant of the Reduction Method will come across this case; and thus several but not all of the algorithms listed on this page which solve this case directly can be used for completing the tredge-tripling stage of a 5x5x5 Reduction solve.
Below is an example algorithm found in December of Algorithms for one such parity case already mentioned are included on this page. The term “parity” can be used to describe a number of situations that occur during a 4x4x4 solve which cannot manifest during a 3x3x3 standard size Rubik’s cube solve. For example, performing a swap of dedges to a fully solved 4x4x4 and then flipping the front dedge resulting from that swap gives us the following.
It’s 4x4x44 to note that the majority of algorithms in this section, like the 25,15 solutions, were found by using the 3x3x3 Classic Setup in Cube Explorer.
