What is XNXNXNXN Cube Algorithms and Why It’s Important ?
XNXNXNXN Rubik’s cube is known as Rubik’s Cube revenge 4X4X4. There are lots of Rubik’s Cube available in the market but the Rubik’s Cube revenge or XNXNXNXN cube is very famous among them. Because it is harder than a standard Rubik’s Cube.
The first Rubik’s Cube puzzle was invented by Erno Rubik. But after that there are lots of Rubik’s Cubes available in the market. And still many more are being discovered. Apart from this you will get many types of Rubik’s Cube puzzles like rubik’s master edition, rubik’s snake, rubik’s magic.
XNXNXNXN Cube is best for those people who have solved standard Rubik’s Cube. The 4X4X4 cube is considered to be the hardest which is known as size 4 Rubik’s revenge and xnxnxnxn cube.
4X4X4 Rubik’s Cube revenge
If you want to solve this Cube, you must know about cube algorithms because every cube works on algorithms.
And using these algorithms you can solve any Rubik’s Cube. But nobody knows the algorithm of Rubik’s Cube and if you search on the internet you don’t get proper information about it.
But today I am going to share with you Proper XNXNXNXN Cube Algorithms. With the help of this you can solve your Rubik’s Cube revenge quickly. The file is given below from where you can download it.
You just have to read it completely and follow the process which is given in this PDF and try it with your xnxnxnxn cube.
Some other Rubik’s Cube information is given below.

- Standard Rubik’s Cube 3X3

How To Solve the 4×4 Rubik’s Cube
If you have learned to solve 3×3 cube then today we will see how you have to solve 4 X 4 cube where it is not too difficult, if you follow this step given below then you will learn it quickly.
- solve the middle pieces
- add similar edge pieces
- Fold only the outer layers, and solve it like a 3×3 cube
Here is a full solve where I go through some more possibilities of what can happen.
Step 1. White Center
pair-up the two white center pieces to make a bar
Try to make a white center somewhere else on the cube, and then join the 2 bars together.
This move should be very intuitive, although you will need to practice how the pieces move.
Step 2. Yellow Center
Try to keep the white center in the bottom, and try to make a yellow center bar anywhere in the cube.
And be sure to fix the white center if it gets destroyed for any reason. Example:
If the yellow stripe is not on the upper face, then move it upwards by doing this.
Try making another yellow bar, and then placing it under the first bar to move it to the top.
Step 3. Partial White Cross
This step completes 3 of the 4 crosses in the correct color order.
Holding the white center to the left
The correct order of going up is Blue, Orange, Green, Red (BOGR)
Try to find 2 white edge pieces that have the same color.
Place one in the left slice layer, and one in the right slice layer (the slice layers are the middle 2 layers).
Join them, and add it to the cross.
Repeat this step for a total of 3 (not 4) cross pieces solved, and follow the color scheme shown above.
Take care not to destroy another cross piece or 2 solved centers.
Step 4. Centers
Try making 1 center bar of any color, and turn it vertically.
If you have already completed a center, then whenever it is destroyed, then fix it as before. (like fixing the white center while making the yellow center).
Try to make another similar color center bar.
If this is the first center you make, you can simply join them together.
If the first center is already prepared, then apply on one side 2 times to connect them.
Now solve the remaining center.
Step 5. Edge Pairing
Hold the cross at the bottom, with the unresolved parts on the front.
Look at the last two white edge pieces. And if any of these are below, then turn to the front so that this does not happen.
Place both white pieces forward/left and forward/right without breaking the partial cross.
Each piece is either on the top or bottom slice layer.
Case 1: If they are in different slices:
- Join the pieces
- Replace it with an unsolved edge pair
- Fix the centers
Note: the edge pair coming down must be an unsolved pair.
Case 2: If they are in the same slice:
- Slice piece 1 towards piece 2.
- Flip piece 1 (with the flipping algorithm: R U R’ F R’ F’ R)
- Fix the centers
The flipping algorithm R U R’ F R’ F’ R is written in move notation. Make sure you hold the piece you want to flip at the front/right.
Insert the cross edge onto the bottom layer to complete the cross.
Solve the remaining edge joints one at a time using the same method as the first edge.
Note: If all the top layer edges are solved already, you can only do case 2. If you get case 1 and this happens, flip either of the pieces with the flipping algorithm to turn it into case 2.
Step 6. Solve Like a 3×3! (mostly)
If you fold only the outer layer, the cube acts like a 3 x 3 with corner pieces, edge pieces, and center pieces.
From here you can solve this cube as 3 x 3.
OLL Parity is when you have a clipped edge which is impossible on a 3 x 3 cube. and happens on 50% of solves. You can flip the front/top edge to fix this, by doing the OLL Parity Algorithm:
Rw U2 x Rw U2 Rw U2 Rw’ U2 Lw U2 Rw’ U2 Rw U2 Rw’ U2 Rw’
PLL equality is when you have two pieces turned in a way that is impossible on 3 x 3, and happens on 50% of solves.
2R2 U2 2R2 Uw2 2R2 Uw2
Example (step 6 impossible position):
Example (PLL impossible position):
Incorrect center can lead to the situation shown below. And even if you follow the tutorial shown above correctly, it is possible that your why has a different color scheme. You can look at a piece of any corner to determine how the center colors can be positioned relative to the other centers.
To swap the U/F centers: Rw’ F2 Rw2 U2 Rw’
To swap the U/D centers: Rw2 U2 D2 Rw2
