Last Two Edges on 5x5

video content Image generated by Wilowrid

What's up guys ?

The dudes cor here today , I'm gonna be showing you easy ways of doing the last two edges on five by five .

Now , the easy way of doing this is you probably already know all the ways of like moving edges around and everything and you probably have all your own method , but just real quick , the ways I like to uh do everything for algorithms and all that is because I don't know if you saw my tutorial .

If you haven't , you can always check that out down in the description .

Um And if you real quick , you thought that this was a five by five tutorial .

It's actually not , this is really for the last two edges .

If you're looking for a five by five tutorial link in the description , if you want to go check that out and then if you saw some other tutorial , I'll show you all the algorithms that I use particularly for five by five real quick .

So the one that I will use for swapping the edges to flip this pair is ru prime back prime R two and that'll flip this edge pair .

And then if I needed to uh after I do my slice , move the algorithm for that would be RF prime ur prime F .

And then that'll , that's when after I do my slice .

So just kind of remember both those algorithms and then it will help you out .

OK .

So normally how I taught you in my original five by five tutorial was that I would tell you to just , OK , go ahead and slice , just do some moves until you get all of the edges on their side together uh where they belong and then you'll just fix parity if you get it .

Well , there are some easier ways of doing this .

Now , what you might think is when you see this one here and then these two here , you might think , OK ?

So let's just go ahead and slice and then they're paired , right ?

They're simple .

No , that's not actually how you're gonna do it because when you perform the algorithm , which I'll show you real quick , you'll slice back .

And these break up .

The way you actually want to pair it up is you're gonna wanna put basically this piece into one that has not been used .

So for instance , this could go into here , but this is not the same piece as what we are slicing it into .

This is the same piece .

So to put slice this piece into this piece , we have to flip this edge pair around by doing our algorithm ru prime back prime R two And then as you see , we flip this around and then what we can do is we can slice this with its similar piece , which is here .

And then we'll perform our uh flipping around the edge pair after slicing , which is R prime fur prime F and then slice .

And as you can see , we've completed the two edge pairs .

Now , there are a lot of cases that you can have , I'm gonna briefly show you lots of them that you can have as quick as I can .

Uh Just remember you're going to need to slice the two that are very , that are similar that because if you don't , you're not gonna be able to solve either of the edges .

Now , in this case , you might notice how we have both of the edges , the similar ones on the same side and a different center edge where it's not supposed to belong .

So you might notice how these two need to swap , but we can't just slice the middle because that's not gonna do anything .

So instead we're just gonna go ahead and slice one of these edges into here .

So kind of like this and then we'll perform our algorithm and then we'll slice back and then you'll notice that we have these two here and then these here .

Now normally what you might do is you might slice like this and then perform our next algorithm because these two are similar .

But instead actually what we can do is we can flip this around and slice this piece into here .

Now , the reason why you're gonna do this is because if you perform this algorithm here , you're gonna end up with double parity and you don't want double parity .

So if we slice like this , we can actually , when after we perform our algorithm have no parity and all the edges then are solved , then you could have this case here uh which is also very similar to the last one , how you had both of these ones on the same side .

But the only difference of this case is is the fact that one of these edges was flipped .

So to get to the other case that we have before , all we need to do is just perform our algorithm by swapping it .

And then from there , we can do our algorithms of the same case of which we have before to solve this case .

So then we'll have this here , turn it around , then we have these two slice , perform the algorithm slice back and then there you go , the last two edges are salt .

Now cases like these , you really just can't avoid and there are a lot of them .

And when you come across them , you're just gonna have to deal with it .

So for instance , you can notice that we can go ahead and slice this or we can go ahead and slice this , which is fine .

But after you performed our regular algorithm that we do , you will notice that we have parity and there really is just no way of avoiding getting just a single parody .

So if you have this , just deal with it , you'll just have to perform our usual algorithm to get past it .

Now , this case , I am pretty sure everyone who is watching this is going to like .

So as you can see , we have double parity right here and this is one of the cases , everyone just does not like to have an easy way to get rid of this .

And it saves so much time is to perform the algorithm twice by swiping only two cases .

And then from there , the size will be solved .

So the way we're gonna do this is it really doesn't matter if you're just gonna slice a piece into the other side .

It doesn't matter as long as if it's just not the center one .

So slice perform our Algo algorithm and then slice back .

Now , as you can see , we have a very interesting case here , you'll notice where these ones lined up here .

So if we turn it around like this , we can go ahead and slice , perform our algorithm slice back and the two edges are solved .

This case saves so much time .

And I definitely would recommend you do using this because nobody likes having to perform the parody algorithm twice .

All right .

So that's pretty much everything for this video .

I know , there was a lot more edge cases that you can have , but all of this is intuitive that you'll really just have to figure out on your own .

All right .

So thank you all so much for watching .
