The only way i am able to solve is to jumble the whole cube again. If you know the way to solve pls give images or algorithm.

  • $\begingroup$ If you truly want to understand the cube and other permutation puzzles, you need to learn commutators, as explained in this post. Then it is obvious that this is a double pair swap, which can be easily done using 2 commutators. Of course there are shorter solutions, but they are ad-hoc and require memorization. $\endgroup$

It's a 4x4 Parity.

The algorithm to solve is,

$(2R)^2U^2(2R)^2u^2(2R)^2(2U)^2$

Where $2R$ is the second layer from right, $U$ is the top layer, $u$ is top two layers combined, $2U$ means second layer from top and the superscript implies you have to turn twice.

First hold the cube in this position.

STEP 1: $(2R)^2$

STEP 2: $U^2$

STEP 3: $(2R)^2$

STEP 4: $u^2$

enter image description here

STEP 5: $(2R)^2$

enter image description here

STEP 6: $(2U)^2$
