COMMENTS

Boklan and Elkies: It is conjectured that every integer N>454 is the sum of seven nonnegative cubes. We prove the conjecture when N is a multiple of 4.
Elkies [2010]: It is conjectured that every integer N>454 is the sum of seven nonnegative cubes. We prove the conjecture when N is congruent to 2 mod 4. This result, together with a recent proof for 4N, shows that the conjecture is true for all even N.  Jonathan Vos Post, Sep 22 2010
