Awhile ago I had a 7x7 with some broken parts and I decided to do something with it and I made an Open Bandaged 7x7. I did ask Tony Fisher if I could make it before I made it and he said ya. I can solve it but I have trouble with some parts I also want to know some better moves that I can do.
I solve it like this:
Step1: solve both 2x5 centers.
Step2: solve both unbandaged centers.
Step3: solve both L shaped centers.
Step4: solve the edges that connect the 2x5 centers with the L shaped centers.
Step5: pair up remaining edges.
Step6: solve like a bandaged 3x3.
File comment: I need better Algs for cases like this. BTW this is part of Step3.
