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.

Some algorithms may only be translatable to higher order even cubes 6x6x6, and larger. Which face of the cube is not important because all we are doing in this section is matching the same coloured edges. Besides the notes mentioned already about what types algorityms algorithms algorith,s 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.

The 11,7 above discolors centers on, say, the 5x5x5 cube.

4x4x4 parity algorithms

If they are on the same layer as displayed on the left you can use either of the two algorithms below to place them on different layers as displayed on the right.

See the PLL Parity section for details. That is, besides just showing parity cases and algorithms for those cases, this page attempts to attribute credit to the original founder of an algorithm as well.

For example, performing a swap of dedges to a fully solved 4x4x4 and then flipping the front dedge resulting from that swap gives us alvorithms following. A clear example of a symmetrical algorithm is Stefan Pochmann’s n x n x n opposite Algorithmw parity algorithm, Rw2 F2 U2 r2 U2 F2 Rw2where all moves in the algorithm are conjugate moves except for the one move in the middle. When you still have to solve algroithms last two edge elements you do not have a third set to reset the centres with.


This PDF includes all 58 cases and short algorithms to solve each one. More will be explained about what other pieces of information in the algorithm bar 4x4d4 mean later.

There is actually a total of last layer 4-cycles, but since 4-cycles in two dedges are the only ones encountered using the most popular 4x4x4 solving methods, they are the only ones shown on this page. Although this algorithm is not listed under a case image on this page, it would appear in the following format in an “algorithm bar” if it 4c4x4.

OLL parity falls under this definition too so the reduced 4x4x4 has four times as many positions as you would expect. In fact, there has been debate about what situations are considered to 4x4x44 a parity casebut there is one situation of which any cuber who uses the term “parity” for the 4x4x4 identifies as parity: 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.

There are actually 58 of these cases in the last layer, in general.

The problem is that we no longer have a third unmatched pair to realign the centres with. However, the other 54 will only be encountered during a K4 Method solve. Two of the most popular 15 BHTM move algorithms which flip a single dedge on the 4x4x4 are the following.

For example, one of the most common single parity algorithms used by the speedcubing community is “Lucas Parity”. However, this PDF includes all cases and relatively short algorithms to solve each one directly.

How to solve a 4×4 Rubik’s Cube

Before starting any algorithm, make sure that the front dark grey face is facing you and the top layer is on the top. They also happen to be supercube safe. Pairing the Edges The first part of this process, as with the centres, is more about seeing what is happening rather than learning algorithms. Websites such as bigcubes.

Front face For the purpose of this exercise we will use the red and green edges. Your browser does not support script. We can break up this algorothms as f f r E E r E E r f f to count 4 f’s and 3 r’s. Most of the algorithms on this page affect some centers of the 4x4x4 supercube: 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.


The aim of this section is to take you from this to this completing the edges. It’s worthy to note that the majority of algorithms in this section, like the 25,15 solutions, were agorithms by using the 3x3x3 Classic Setup algorthms Cube Explorer. Should one wish to induce an odd permutation in the wing edges of the 4x4x4 with a short algorithm without having to restore the cube as much as applying an inner slice quarter turn requires, below are fairly short and simple algorithms one can use.

The “w” is short for “wide”. 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. It is common convention among the speedcubing community to use algorithms which contain wide double layer turns to solve OLL parity instead of single inner layer slices. It is also clearly not a speedsolving algorithm as “Lucas Parity” is.

Algorithms for the Cage Methodas well as algorithms for theoretical purposes and general 4x4x4 exploration are present as well.

The term “parity” can be used to describe a number of situations that algorithm during a 4x4x4 solve which cannot manifest during a 3x3x3 standard size Rubik’s cube solve.
