These are all of the cases solving the last two edges of a 5x5x5 using a reduction method. The algorithms are mostly from and Meep’s site. Here are the “Last 2 Edges” and parity cases you can encounter while solving the 5x5x5. Hold the cube so that the two edges to solve are at Front and Back of.

5×5 Edge Parity Algorithms

Solve the remaining points on the sides 4. This includes topics addressed in the wiki”Mail day pictures” containing only WCA puzzles, PB posts, and questions that can be answered quickly. You will need to rotate the front side and middle horizontal slice as necessary to place pieces into position.

Zarxrax Member Dec 23, Complete the remaining crosses on the sides 6. Get the four green points on the down bottom face in place, using Move 2a and Move 2b as necessary. Solve the top points and crosses Pick a center piece to represent the first side of the cube solved blue in these figures and solve the points and crosses on that side.

But you use one alg from the 4×4 and only 1 new one for the 5×5 to get past it. Which Cubes To Buy? It doesn’t have any textual explanation Cases are presented in various orientations Cases are presented in various color schemes Image has no explanation of the notation It doesn’t even attempt to distinguish between parity and non-parity cases.

Follow the sitewide rules, and abide by reddiquette. With that said, I wouldn’t have had a popsicle chance in hell figuring it out on a 4×4 due to parity. Here are some of the shorter algorithms I’ve seen that fix parity errors: To complete the top fill in the keyhole: Fun as is whopee. To increase clarity, I have shown a lot of colored pieces. You must log in or register to reply here. Follow the sitewide rules, and abide by reddiquette PM any of the mods if you need some mod-ly duties performed.


Puzzling Stack Exchange works best with JavaScript enabled. MCCCS 6 Kudos to whoever published this image initially, but we as a cubing community should be able to create a standard reference work that is better than this. If you use the 7×7 last 2 edge method I personally think it’s better because you don’t need to memorize 10 new algorithms. Maybe you can get megaminx if you want to, that would be more challenging because it has different shape.

Some algorithms are not directly transferable, but most of those which are not are not “fast” anyway. I’d say 5×5 is easier, although I’d get a 4×4 first if I were you. These instructions can be used to solve a 5x5x5 cube, also known as the professor cube due to its difficulty. A letter with an apostrophe ‘ means to turn the side counterclockwise one quarter turn a -1 can be used in place of an apostrophe, but the apostrophe takes up less space.

Associate wings with their appropriate edge pieces 7.

How do I memorize parity algorithms for higher-order Rubik’s cubes? – Puzzling Stack Exchange

Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. After you have associated a few of the wings and edges, begin to pay attention to the movement of the piece from the back-left of the cube to the back-top of the cube, trying to align the piece with the top back edge.

Any other sort of posts like these? What’s up with that? First, position the paritty 8 points along the 4 sides: Unfortunately, there’s not an easy way to spot or correct parity errors, but understanding what causes them can help you memorize how to correct them, and figure out where to go. Pretend the cube is a 3x3x3, ignoring the outside edges.


R’r’ D2 Rr In words, rotate the Right side and 2nd layer in from the right side counterclockwise one turn, the down bottom side two turns degrees and the right side and 2nd layer in from the right side clockwise one quarter turn. From where did you learn yours?

To correct them, you need to execute an algorithm that puts the internal hidden states into their correct locations, likely at the cost of re-scrambling a portion of the rest of the cube. To move 1 point into position: You might already kinda know it from one odd case with the last two dedges on a 4×4. You can use or adapt a great number of the 4×4 OLL parities on a 5×5.

A very similar move performs the mirror image of Move 6a. To insert a piece into the bottom: Forums New posts Search forums.

Which is easier 4x4x4 or 5x5x5 Cube?

So I’d just say go with 4x4x4, because it really is the ‘next level up. You get it in edge pairing. Self promotion youtube videos, books, apps, etc is allowed once per week.

Joined Jul 16, Messages 59 Likes 0. Move 6a will not work in this situation, since it moves three pieces. As a result, they’re quite literally impossible to spot until you run face-first into an unsolvable state.
