 Post subject: Solving a 3x3x5 (without looking up a method)

I'm getting a 3x3x5 for Christmas, and want to learn to solve it, but since I haven't got it yet I'm trying to work out a method on my V-Cube 5.

Although I'm sure there are plenty of decent methods out there, I like the idea of solving it almost all by myself, with a little helpful shove from the people on the internet. :)

The only problem now is that I'm having problems switching around the faces on the cube, like the faces highlighted in the picture. :(

If anyone would know of any algorithms that switch these around without messing anything up, I would be very grateful :D

Thanks,

HHP

With green as the front face and red as the up face, (r U' r' U)x5 affects only those pieces.

I don't literally want to move those pieces, by just pieces similar to that. :)

on a 3x3x5, the extended pieces to not behave like that... you'd need a super 3x3x5 for them to do that. The extended pieces on a 3x3x5 act like a 3x3x2. :D
