I don’t want to be the one to say this, but you can’t expect us to walk you
through every step in a solve. Play around with it, try out all kinds of
commutators and/or conjugates, use macros you used for fixing faces, take a
break, and try again later. You should realize that the algorithm for
solving 3D edges is not going to work on the 4D edges, because 4D edges are
made of 3c pieces, not 2c. Using 3D methods, one should be able to fix
centers and faces of a 4D cube with a little refinement, but edges require
something more. If we just gave you macros for fixing the edges, then we’d
basically be solving it for you at this stage.
