Here is what my rubiks cube instructions look like:

Solve the green cross. Use this algorithm if an edge piece is not oriented correctly: Ri U Fi Ui

Solve the green corners. once a corner piece is directly below its correct spot do this algorithm 1,3, or 5 times: Ri Di R D

Solve the middle layer with either of these algorithms: U R Ui Ri Ui Fi U F or Ui Fi U F U R Ui Ri

Solve the blue cross(just getting a cross). If you already have it great. Otherwise do this algorithm: F R U Ri Ui Fi

Solve the blue edges. Hold red in front. if red blue and red yellow are both matched than hold white in front and do this algorithm: R U Ri U R U U Ri U If not than do this algorithm to position the yellow blue edge correctly: R U Ri U R U U Ri and than do the same thing as described before with the white in front.

Get the blue corners in the correct places. find a corner piece in the correct spot. Put that above your right thumb if you find one and do this algorithm once or twice: U R Ui Li U Ri Ui L Otherwise do that 1 time before you look for a corner in the right spot again

Orient the blue corners correctly. Turn the top layer so that you have a corner that needs to be flipped in the upper front right corner. Make sure red is in front during this step. Do this algorithm 2 or 4 times for every corner piece that isn't in the correct orientation: Ri Di R D

Now for 4x4, 5x5 etc. would I do the middle layer algorithms more than once like this

4x4: twice

5x5: thrice(not commonly used anymore but means 3 times)

6x6: 4 times

7x7: 5 times

8x8: 6 times

all the way to

11x11: 9 times?

Also would I do the cross algorithms more than once?

And what about the permutation and orientation of edges algorithms?

what about the corners algorithms?

Basically I am wanting to know how to use these algorithms on any size cube above 3x3(In case I am one of those that can't use the fredrick method).
