Some speedcubers can solve this cube under 30 seconds so it can t be that hard. The rubik s 4×4 cube is also sometimes known as the rubik s revenge.
Throughout this guide please reference the rubik s cube 3×3 guide.
How to solve a rubiks cube 4×4. Unlike the original 3×3 cube the 4x4x has no fixed centre pieces and so it is even harder to solve. Then solve the opposite side of the cube. This is a fairly easy step if you started cubing on a 3×3 and moved up to a 4×4.
Once you group the centers and pair the edges you will be solving the rubik s master like the rubik s cube using the layered method. You ll also want to work on finding l shapes of the same color. In step 3 we are going to use a basic 3×3 method and algorithms to solve the 4×4 rubik s cubes just like a 3×3 cube.
We solve the 4×4 grouping the 4 centers and the edge pairs together and finally solving it like a 3×3. To solve it start by getting the 2×2 center blocks for white red and blue. If you re bored with your 3x3x3 cube a 4x4x4 rubik s cube will definitely make things more challenging.
But don t worry here are some videos to help you master this difficult puzzle. Step 3 finishing the 4×4. How to solve a 4×4 rubik s cube introduction the 4x4x4 cube is the next puzzle in the rubik s cube series known as the rubik s revenge although seems to be much more difficult than the famous 3×3 solving the 4×4 rubik s revenge is very similar to it and requires only few more algorithms to learn.
Deep turns come in when we move two letters together but we can define slice turns when we move the second layer only. We use letters to mark the rotations on the cube similar to the the rubik s cube notation. Before learning to solve the rubik s master you should be proficient at solving the rubik s cube original 3×3.
