**RUBIK'S 4th DIMENSION CUBE**

**If you have a Rubik's 4th Dimension
Cube you will need to learn how to correctly align the symbols which are found on four of
the six faces. If you have solved the colors on all of the faces first then you will
need to learn several more complex series of face turns in order to rotate the four
symbols so that all are upright. **

**But that would be a waste of time
and effort for, if you align the symbols first, the process is simplicity itself provided you
use the method given on these pages to solve the cube. The cube must be held so that
the symbols are on the vertical faces while placing edge pieces but orientation is
immaterial while placing corner pieces. If a vertical face is rotated in a given
direction early in an Edge Piece Series then it is rotated in the
opposite direction later. At the conclusion of every series the four symbols will
each have the same alignment as they did in the beginning. Therefore, if you
properly align all four symbols before you begin to apply The Ultimate Solution then the
symbols will be properly aligned when you have completed the solution.**

**Hold the cube so that either the
orange or the red face is on the top (that is, either of the faces without one of the
symbols on it). Put three of the top edge pieces in place relative to each
other. Make sure that the fourth top edge piece is on the bottom of the
cube with its top face color on the bottom face of the cube.**

**The position where the fourth top
edge piece belongs is above one of the four vertical face symbols. It makes no
difference which one. The fourth top edge piece must not be below this symbol.
If necessary, rotate the bottom face so that this fourth edge piece is in one of
the other positions. Now rotate the vertical face (if necessary) so that the symbol
is upright.**

**Rotate the top face 90 ^{o}
and repeat this process for the second symbol. Again rotate the top face 90^{o}
and carry out this process for the third symbol.**

**Rotate the top face one more time
and the fourth symbol will be below the slot where the fourth top edge piece belongs.
This time rotate the vertical face so that the symbol is upside down. Now
rotate the bottom face so that the fourth top edge piece is below the last symbol.
Rotate this vertical face by 180 ^{o}. The fourth symbol is properly aligned
(upright) and the fourth top edge piece is in place relative to the other three.
Rotate the top face until the top edge pieces are properly aligned with the vertical face
colors.**

**All four symbols are properly
aligned as are the top edge pieces. Complete the remaining steps of The Ultimate
Solution and the Rubik's 4th Dimension Cube will be restored to its original
condition. Now wasn't that easy?
