|4||7 minutes 45.31 seconds||Mike Hughey||Memorization time: 3:15.|
For an online competition.
Yes! Finally sub-8!
|5||8 minutes 13 seconds||Tim Habermaas||Memo was about 3:10. I hope this motivates the really fast guys to post their times.||20071230|

|8||10 minutes 42.08 seconds||Daniel Lundwall||Insane, PB by 4 mins. :D|
Not lucky in any way, I just went full speed.
|9||13 minutes 2 seconds||Henrik Buus Aagaard||Wow I just beat my record by 3 min. I memorized in 7 min high.|
I use fixed buffer target for centers. r2 for edges and Pochmann corners (with two extra algs.)
I feel like I can do faster. Execution can get faster and memo can always get faster and trained.

|11||13 minutes 35 seconds||Lucas Garron||On film; I've had a lot of faster, really close DNF's (including one kinda-close [2 wrong setups] sub-10).|
Pure visual memo, r2 for edges, commutators for centers.
|12||13 minutes 37.29 seconds||Derrick Eide||YES! |
Memo: 6 Minutes
Execution: 7 Minutes
|13||14 minutes 59.74 seconds||Jason Baum||I've had a lot of DNFs in the mid to low 20s recently, then out of nowhere I got a sub 15! I memorized in about 6:30, which is ridiculous because I've never even had sub 10 memo before. I still have a lot of room for improvement though!||20080124|

|16||18 minutes 20.30 seconds||Josh Berg||FIRST EVER 4X4 BLINDSOLVE!! i got another one but it was a bit lucky so i didnt post that one. 9 minute memo lots of room for improvemeint||20080519|
|17||18 minutes 59.99 seconds||Shaden Smith||Had a timer issue (spacebar turned off my screensaver, not timer) and due to this I'm just calling it 18:59.59. It took me several seconds to notice it, so I'm only giving my self to be sub-19. The timer showed 19:01.10.|
My first successful solve!
|18||19 minutes||Dennis Strehlau||I DID IT!!|
wow, before i took off the blindfold, i was like: okay, this wont be solve, like the ones before, lets see how many mistakes i did:P
But then, BAAAAAAAAM!
i couldnt believe it, cause the other times before, i was also absolutely sure that i did it correct, but this time, YEEEEES!
THAAAAAAAAAAAANKS TO DANIEL LUNDWALL!!He took like 1 hour or even more to explain me centers for U face, THAAAAANKS MAN!
3rd TRY EVER!!

|20||24 minutes 10.46 seconds||Ouyang Yunqi||When I was memorizing the centers, suddenly I felt dizzy. When I tried to stand up, I found it was so difficult.About half a minute later,all goes common. I didn't realize what happened then. When I went to class after the solve, I heard of that a strong earthquake happened in my hometown. The feeling before was caused by it, the earthquake happened thousands of kilometres away!!Luckily, my family were safe.|
The memorization spent about half the time.
|21||24 minutes 12.95 seconds||Clément Gallet||Woh !! Second time I solve this cube blindfolded. I start practicing the 4x4x4 blindfold only a week ago.|
I'm using my own method for the centers which allows a fast memorisation (I usually take 2-3 min to memorise them) but which takes more time to solve (for now).The memorisation took 9:11. Keep practicing (with the 5x5x5 blindfold maybe) for the Euro 2006 :).

|28||33 minutes 29.76 seconds||Kyle Allaire||9th attempt.I re-checked everything about 5 times and solved very slowly.DNF on a 4x4x4 is like breaking your neck.You never really get over it.||20070215|
|29||35 minutes 9.00 seconds||Péter Trombitás||huhh. this was my first succesfull 4x4 bf I think about for the 20th try. 11 centers and one corner permuted(the corner had wrong orientation). 4 shortcuts at the edges(I solve it with r2 and sometimes with easy commutators) so it was really hard to memorize for me. I'm still very very happy. I couldn't imagine it 3 months ago I started the tries as a joke. Than I had a DNF with two centers swapped. This time I decided to start practicing. I'm trying to get better times:)||20090507|

My first try at this. Easy corners, but the centers and edges were insanely hard to memorize due to the Eastsheen Color Scheme, which I'm not used to. I can go faster.

My first time at attempting this and it was a success! Didn't time memorisation because I took a long time making sure I remembered everything perfectly. Used standard corners method, Stefan's 4x4x4 edges method and applied his method to the centres. Special thanks to Chris for inspiration and Stefan, I wouldn't have done this without them.
I am definitely going to do this again, maybe after the supercube :) ~ Kirjava
