This was the first puzzle cube video I was asked to make. I used to have problems with this one myself so I did it at a leisurely pace to show how I solve it.

1. Solve one of the center 2x2 faces (I did red)
2. If the pieces are oriented correctly and in the right position, you should have a 2x4 block made
3. Solve for the other 2x2 side using algorithms you would use to solve a 2x2x2 cube.
4. Once the center 2x2x2 block is solved, you should have a tower in 2x2x4 shape.
5. Put all the white edge pieces on one side and blue on the other (swap sides until you have it)
6. Swap the two top right side pieces using the following algorithm until one side is solved (you may be able to solve one edge without this algorithm)

(D' R2 U R2 U' R2 U' D R2 U' R2 U R2)

7. Flip the tower over and solve using the same method for the last edge.
