1. I lubed it with lubix, even the core.

So it turns good now, and it doesn't feel like it's going to fall apart. But it still makes that grinding sound/

2. ## Square-1 Algorithm and Questions

When solving my square one, I have everything solved except 2 corners that are across from each other. All other corners and edges are permuted and oriented, except these 2 across from each other. Is there an error with my cube? or is there an algorithm? Any help? Thank You.

Also, what is your opinions on jig-a-loo. I feel it works well, but have heard it can melt the plastic.

So, if you could give me an algorithm for this, or tell me whats wrong with my cube, thank you.

3. What is the best way to recognize the "L" shape OLLs?

4. I found the L's easier to learn by using L / R mirror algs
Then check if you have 1 or 2 "yellow bars" on the sides

1 bar: place bar in the front (short part of "L" is now facing backwards) if it is on R then do r U r' R U R' U' L F' L' is it on L then the lefty version
2 bars: position with short part of the "L" towards you: is it on R then R' F R U R' F' R y' R U' R', is it on the left do L F' L' U' L F L' y L' U L

5. Is a v-cube 5 core replaceable with a core from a ghosthand 5x5 or will this make it turn badly/lock

/ (3,3) / (3,0) / (2,-4) / (0,-4) / (4,-2) / (2,-4) / (4,6) / (1,-2) / (-3,-3) /

That swaps two adjacent corners on the U face, on the left side.

7. And just fyi: Every single cube state on a Square-1 is solvable. You can take the entire thing apart and put the pieces back in any random order and it will always be solvable.

8. i wouldn't recommend using jig a loo in a sq1

9. Is there a way to show the date of a post if it the post is just posted two or three weeks ago?

10. Could this go here? I'm not sure where else to put it...
Roux users!! Help!!

First block? Nothing looks good for me, even any of the non W/Y bottom blocks (I'm not CN w/roux)
