Contact info: I appreciate receiving e-mails describing your success with these directions, but I cannot provide any additional help in solving the 5x5 cube beyond the instructions and steps shown here. In fact, I have not scrambled my 5x5 cubes in a long time, due to the effort required to unscramble them. Please also e-mail if you have problems accessing a page or seeing a graphic.
