    OLL 17
    FRU'R'U'S'RUR'F2f
    The last two moves are quite awkward for me. I can do it faster than RUR'UR'FRF'U2'R'FRF' which is what I'm using, but I'm not sure if I will use it in solves.

    I do the first S using my right thumb, which happens to be in the right place.

    Alternate OLL's/ PLL's

    I have been able to uncover some alternate OLL's or PLL's that nobody else knows of. I know an alternative for 6 OLL's in general:

    OLL 19: y2 F R' F' R U R U' R' y' F (R U R' U') F'
    OLL 7: F R' F' R U2 R U2 R'
    OLL 8: R U2 R' U2 R' F R F'
    OLL 49: y2 F (R U R' U') F2 U' L' U L F
    OLL 50: y2 F' (L' U' L U) F2 U R U' R' F'
    OLL 52: y2 R' U' F R' F' R F R' F' R U R
    How many do you know?;)

    I know/use all of these...

    Except the first doesn't work?

    Oops, I did the first one incorrectly...thanks for noticing.

    For when that awkward F2L case comes up, or when you aren't very focused and inserted a couple of pairs wrong (on an unrelated note, I was tired last night when I was doing some casual solves.)

    Here are all of most PLL's:

    2 Lookers

    Ua Permutation-R2 U R U R' U' R' U' R' U R'
    Ub Permutation-R U' R U R U R U' R' U' R2
    H Permutation-M2' U' M2' U2' M2' U' M2'
    Z Permutation-U M' U' M2' U' M2' U M' U2' M2'
    Aa Permutation-l' U R' D2 R U' R' D2 R2
    Ab Permutation-x R2 D2 R U R' D2 R U' R
    E Permutation-x U R' U' L U R U' r2 U' R U L U' R' U

    The Super-Duper Finger Tricky ones

    T Permutation-R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R' F'
    Y Permutation-F R U' R' U' R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R F'
    Ja Permutation-y R' U L' U2 R U' R' U2 L R U'
    Jb Permutation-y' L U' R U2 L' U L U2 R' L' U
    F Permutation-R' U R U' R2 y' R' U' R U y x R U R' U' R2 B'
    V Permutation-r' F R F' r U r' F R' F' r U2 R U2 R'

    The Annoying Guys

    Ga Permutation-y R2' u R' U R' U' R u' R2 y' R' U R
    Gb Permutation-R' U' R y R2 u R' U R U' R u' R2
    Gc Permutation-y2 R U R' y' R2 u' R U' R' U R' u R2
    Gd Permutation-y R2' u' R U' R U R' u R2 y R U' R'

    I didn't include the R or N perms because nearly everyone uses the same alg.

    Ua is R U' and Ub is R2 U.
    And that E perm alg sucks, try x' R U' R' D R U R' D' R U R' D R U' R' D'.

    I was messing around with the cube and found out that T perm with r instead of R is actually A perm.

    r U r' U' r' F r2 U' r' U' r U r' F'

    And mirror for other A perm.

    This has been found before...a lot..
    Feliks used it in his 30.88 4x4 WR

    An interesting thing is that subsituting R for r in R2UR2U'R2U'DR2U'R2UR2D' and R2UR2U'R2y'R2U'R2uR2u' T perms changes them into A perms as well

    You might as well use the normal A Perms unless you're in the exact position to preform the "wide T Perm"...

    In that case you could also just use R U l' U' L U R' U' L' U (R2 x') U' R'

    Based on Kir/Escher's double Z-perm. Here is a double O perm: M2 U M2 U' D' M2 D' M2 D2
    And other way is obvious: M2 U' M2 U D M2 D M2 D2

    Just experimented more with double O perms and here are algs for all 4 types you can get. Remember you can mirror and flip layers and whatever to similar algs that you might prefer for fingerticks.
    First direction is the U layer, second is the D layer.
    CCW/CW: M2 U M2 U' D' M2 D' M2 D2
    CW/CCW: M2 D M2 D' U' M2 U' M2 U2
    CW/CW: M2 D' M2 D U' M2 U' M2 U2
    CCW/CCW: M2 D M2 D' U M2 U M2 U2
