my cube broke (peice of crap) when i first got it and i may have switched the 3 tredge pieces..if the video you post doesn't work then I shall flip the edge peices.

I'd flip them manually.  If you have a case with a single flipped
tredge (like the 4x4's single flipped dedge), then you've had a
misassembled cube.



Once your cube is in a solved state, these algs will be all you need to fix the parity from then onwards.

yes i meant popping it out and realigning it. when i first got it it broke and i thought i put it back correctly but i guess not.

If a scrambled puzzle pops on me, I usually take it completely apart and reassemble solved.

was on the last layer (beginner method) and was on the F R U R` U` F (where the strip is diagonal) and then popped out the other side ..then did FRUR`U`F and then i solved the corners and wala! i put it back together wrong :P
thanks

Here's the algorithm for fixing them:
Note, when i say R or L, grip the two side layers on that side.
When i say 2 in front of the letter, turn it twice.
When there is an i after the letter, turn the layer counterclockwise.
The algorithm is:
2R 2B 2U L 2U Ri 2U R 2U 2F R 2F Li 2B 2R
Yes, it is 15 moves long.
The algorithm will flip the side edges on an edge of the cube. It will mess up the cube, but the centers are still solved and the edges are still together, so you can just solve the rest of the cube like a 3x3.
Think of doing so this way: the 3 edges that are together on the 5x5 is like the 1 edge on the 3x3, and the centers are like the centers of the 3x3. And the corners are just corners.
Good luck!

I believe that last layer parity does not occur on a 5x5.

Yes the last layer parity does occur on the 5x5x5 cube I have been searching for days on a solution for it but haven't found any..

I think we are all talking at cross purposes here. Any chance of a picture so we can settle this once and for all?
