Hi guys! Simon Swanson here, bringing you the fruits of my work on the Zborowski-Bruchem Last Layer, or ZBLL!
The current version is 2.57 (if anyone wants an old version I've saved the PDFs). This should be an error-free document, though some things may have slipped by. I've added many things since the first version and I highly recommend you download again. As I progress into learning ZBLL myself, the changes will come as I dismiss algs as being terrible.
For those of you learning phasing, I've extracted those cases into a ZZLL Algorithms document. This document is just algorithms taking out of the ZBLL document. Current version 1.05.
The .ODT and .DOC are if you want the chance to edit anything (highly encouraged). The .PDF is if you want to blindly follow what I say (also good). The .PDF is probably easier to read, but I really recommend the ability to edit the sheets.
This was a huge amount a work. But I will not lie: I took tons of shortcuts. However, I did make every single algorithm myself (though a few happen to be the same as Jason Baum's). I won't write much here becuase I ramble on in the sheets. I made every image myself (493 items) and every alg (480 items). I estimate 80 hours of rather inefficient work was put into these documents.
I would like to thank Cride5 in particular for spending large amounts of time helping correct any mistakes I had. And as a bonus, he so graciously put them all online. Thanks Cride5!
A few things to note:
1. False algorithms should have been fixed but I bet some have been missed. Keep an open mind when an alg just doesn't work.
2. Help with some of the algs would be greatly appreciated. Some of the ones I listed suck walnuts.
3. I like M slices. L' R becomes M x and R' L becomes M' x'. Fix it in your sheet or deal with it.
For those of you just starting the ZBLL path, here is a sheet for my COLL algorithms.
COLL Algorithms in document form
Enjoy, you guys!
January 5th: got up version 1.01. Had a redundant algorithm in one of the H sets (thanks masterofthebass). Also put the PDF on Google for easier access (thanks PHPJaguar).
January 17th: trying to get everything onto Google. Download the document, remove the .pdf extension, and open as a .doc. If this works, I'll get everything off the annoying site and onto Google.
January 18th: Thanks to Cride5, every alg is now on the wiki. Great job! Link: http://www.speedsolving.com/wiki/ind...3&group=ZBLL-T
January 18th: Also thanks to Cride5, huge update. Had several algs wrong and one whole page messed up. New version is 1.18, I believe.
February 2nd: Large Bump. After some updates on the wiki, I decided to update the documents again. A few minor errors were fixed and some different algorithms added to give some variety. I set the H1 COLL set to show the symmetry happening on many of the cases, but I decided to keep all 12 cases (8 are possible with some U2-ing). If you haven't downloaded any of the updated versions, you should do so now. I lost track of the changes and just decided to call this version 2.00, where there should be no mistakes. Also updated this post.
February 3rd: On request, put up a rather junky COLL sheet. I'll get working on that one soon...Also, would people enjoy VHF2L or ZBF2L? I don't wanna go full ZBF2L, but if enough people request it I could get it done in a month or so (I've got a lot of work right now).
May 18th: Finally got around to fixing some more minor mistakes and preferences. As I work through the algs I decided whether or not I like them. I don't think an optimal page will come out for a while, but I'll be steadily editing the speed-oriented version as I progress further into my quest for ZBLL.
August 28th: Decided to put up the ZZLL docs as well. Finally finished the H sets, both in learning and getting better algs. Shaped up the intro a tad, but otherwise not much is different. I'm at version 2.57 and I barely finished the smallest set. Wow.
