I encountered my first and possibly only layer skip. I did the first two layers then the LL was done. my time was 12.62. it took me like a second to realize that it was done. it's never gonna happan to me again. out of 1000s of combinations it was the best one.

isn't zbF2L the same as petrus F2L?

No....ZB is like the Fridrich method except, the last algorithm turns all the edges up on the last layer. It is the same principle as Petrus method, but is done cross on one layer then 4 CE pairs to be inserted.

Correct me if I am wrong.

i still do 2x2x3 but i place CE pair and FD edge then ZBF2L.Bad edges are a waste of time because it is a step in its own.I'm learning ZBF2L because it flips + pairs which saves amazing amounts of time.it is originally a cross with 3 CE pairs and placing last CE while flipping all U edges.I can't imagine learning full ZB within a year.

It's only 306 algorithms....

I think I've had 5 LL-skips in my life. With Petrus or ZBF2L it's 1/1944 chance, so it's not that impossible. I got one of the skips last week. I was finishing 4b with RUR', but popped two pieces. Took a few seconds to put them back, and after that LL was solved... Time was 14.xx, I think.

I took that from Vandenbergh's site, he has his ZB method on there.

Yes, that's ZBF2L. But ZB includes also ZBLL (solving LL with one alg if edges are oriented), and that's almost 500 algs. So it's ~800 for complete ZB...

he is amazing. blindfold 3x3x3-5x5x5, one handed, anything. I saw a 10 minute video of him memorizing and solveing a 4x4x4 blindfolded.

Stefan does all those too, he even BLD the super 5x5. Didn't you?

Sorry, my question was aimed at Stefan, my bad.

Maybe, but it will take several years. And it's only around one second faster than normal Fridrich with OLL and PLL (once mastered), so I think practising normal methods for 3 years would be a better idea...

There's a ZB group on yahoo. There were several people learning it last year, but I believe everyone (including Hardwick) has given up. Zborowski uses his own ZZ system, which requires a lot less algorithms.

I'm not going to consider ZB seriously... Doing 4b and OLL in one go seems easier, because after that there's only PLL left and a lot of those algs are fast RU. But with ZB, there are two really hard steps.

Nah, I never even attempted the 4x4. Jumped from 3x3 to 5x5 directly (well, after megaminx) cause I somewhat had to. And I'd be nowhere near 10 minutes for 4x4, it'd take me at least an hour I think. Chris did Super 5x5 as well I believe.

chris owns all. I learned a lot from his site. like one handed stuff. he had the record for one handed at one time. it was like 45 seconds I think.

Super 4x4x4 & Super 5x5x5 == Easyer than normal 4x4x4 & 5x5x5 for BLD.

On a 4x4x4, centres can be sent to different places and still be classed as solved. on a super, it has it's own unique place. Having multiple solutions makes it very confusing when memorising, as you kind of have to remember extra info and make decisions. You can make one too many cycles, or put multiple pieces into the same spot.

Then again, Chris Hardwick finds super 4x4x4 harder (I think he still does) because he can't do all his crazy tricks.

Basically, it's easyer for a beginner to BLD a super 4x4x4. Well, and intermediate and advanced. Unless you're Chris
