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.

We can count that this algorithm has 7 block half turn moves BHTM without breaking it up. Combining some form of PLL parity and a single dedge flip creates one of the many cases of what’s commonly alogrithms double parity. Reduction parity occurs when you try to reduce the puzzle so it can be solved by a constrained set of moves, putting it into some subset of the positions. In MayMichael Gottlieb defined reduction parity in detail.
The remaining PLL parity cases which involve the fewest number of pieces besides the most popular case above are the following. Clearly this algorithm does not preserve the pairing of dedges, but it does preserve the colors of the centers; and it contains 7 inner slice quarter turns, an odd number. Perhaps if the 3x3x3 Classic Setup is used up to depth 21, some 21 slice quarter turn solutions may be found.
Here’s one video tutorial that illustrates the typical process. Symmetrical algorithms are conjugates. All algorithms algodithms be applied to the 6x6x6 if instead of turning the outer 2 layers, turn the outer 3 layers; instead of turning 1 inner layer slice, turn 2 inner layer slices.

For illustration of how algorithm bars are 4x44x4 to be labelled, let us temporarily name it “Old Standard Alg” and called the author “anonymous”. No “conjugate assistance” is used. This is because the Reduction Method and its variants is the most commonly used solving method.
Recalling that the term “2-cycle” is interchangeable with the common term “swap”, these cases perform 2 2-cycles of wing edges. This page not only contains algoeithms practiced speedsolving algorithms: You will notice that the pair are matched after the first rotation in the algorithm, however, the four centres on the side faces have now been split, the rest of the algorithm places the newly matched pair on the up face then replaces them with the split pair which are turned to the front face so the side face centres can be realigned.
For example, the second 15 BHTM algorithm mentioned above could be expressed later on this page with the following algorithm bar, since all of its inner slice turns can be made algorithks 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 algorithm begins and ends with Rw2 instead of r2.
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” 4x44x4 “feel” when they are displayed in notation and executed on a cube, respectively. At the same time, we can count a total of 11 block quarter turn moves BQTM.
See the PLL Parity section for details. Two algorithms of similar length the number of moves an algorithm contains can look and feel, when executing very different.

It is also clearly not a speedsolving algorithm as “Lucas Parity” is. The aim of this section is to take you from this to this completing the edges. We can clearly see this in the above algorithm bar. The four cases above clearly switch two dedgesbut they can also be interpreted as doing two separate swaps of wing edges.
Two of the most popular 15 BHTM move algorithms which flip a single dedge on the 4x4x4 are the following.
In practice, human creation of symmetrical algorithms requires more trial and error of different paths in both creation of the base the base is defined as the move sequence B in A B A’ and final setup moves, whereas the creation of non-symmetrical algorithms requires having knowledge of forming different pieces individually and knowing how to combine them.
Tom Rokicki and Ed Trice. For algoritjms purpose of this exercise we will use the red and green edges. 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. Algorithms for one such parity case already mentioned are included on this page. OLL parity falls under this definition too so the reduced 4x4x4 has four times as many positions as you would expect. The first algorithme of this process, as with the centres, is more about seeing what is happening rather than learning algorithms.

Below are two single dedge flip 2-cycle algorithms illustrating the idea. You now have a 3x3x3 cube, however you may still have parity problems.
Although this algorithm is not listed under a case image on this page, it would appear in the following format in an “algorithm alorithms if it was. Besides containing case images and algorithms for reduction parity cases, this 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.
However, we can also just use the inner slice turns r and r’ as well. Alggorithms 2-cycle of wings is as common during a K4 Method solve as the single dedge flip is, but it should never arise during a solve using the Reduction Method because two dedges are not paired up. Algorithm names will be explained next.
Wiki tools Special pages. Similar to doing an inner slice quarter turn like r to technically fix the single dedge flip parity, 4x44x inner slice half turn such as r2 is technically all that is needed to fix PLL parity. Your browser does not support script. Their inner slice turns may all be replaced with wide turns and still preserve the first three layers F3L of the 4x4x4 and flip one dedge.
The obvious example is PLL parity in 4x4x4: This page will keep algoriyhms focus on reduction parity OLL parity and PLL parity cases, but it will also algorithsm 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. Pairing the Edges The first part alogrithms this process, as with the centres, is more about seeing what is happening rather than learning algorithms.
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.
