Title says it all, I'm stuck on my Gigaminx for the edges :(

I've tried adapting my big-cube strategy to it, but it ends up not working, and I can't find any non-video guides (I'm terrible at learning from videos). So can somebody please post their algorithms for edge-pairing, preferably with an image attached? (It doesn't have to be a nice picture by any means - I'd just use Paint to fill in different colours on a screenshot of a Gelatinbrain-simulated Gigaminx)

It works exactly like a 5x5x5.

My 5x5x5 method doesn't seem to work, so that's why this thread is here.

Can you please give an algorithm for your 5x5x5 method?

I'll try and make a little song... (to the tune of Hokey Pokey).

You move the edge wing to,
The centre edge and,
Right Up Right Prime,
And then you move it back.
Alternatively you could do the mirrored algorithm,
And that's what it's all about! Hey!
:lol: :lol: :lol:
