    Sure, I think any method would help with your main method. If you plan to make ZZ your main method though, I personally think it will take a long time before you get back to your original times.

    Hi, I've been cubing for about a month now, I used to be in the same boat as you and if you want to shave off the most time definitely practice your f2l. What I did is use a metronome to improve my lookahead (im a musician so I happen to have a few around, but there are plenty online and whatnot), I started slow and did one turn on each beat and then slowly got faster, this helped my lookahead tremendously and also made my solves smoother. This worked really well for me as I went from an 80 second average to my 50 second average that I'm at now in only a few days.
    Good Luck

Would the algs be 2 gen if I had 2 twisted corners, and placed them on the right side with a D/D'/D2 turn? ...


    asuming there are exactly two adjacent D-corners placed but missoriented
    1 * 2 (4 oriented top noparity)
    2 * 2 (3 oriented top parity)
    2 * 2 (2 adj. oriented top noparity)
    2 * 2 (2 adj. oriented top parity)
    1 * 2 (2 diag. oriented top noparity)
    2 * 2 (2 diag. oriented top parity)
    2 * 2 (1 oriented top noparity)
    2*3*2 (1 oriented top parity)
    2 * 2 (0 oriented top noparity)
    2*2 (0 oriented top parity)
    = 44 CASES

    al this can be done 2-gen.

    ... could be a nice Petrus variation if replacing petrus step 1 and 2 with "Step 1: build a 3x2x2 with misoriented corners"

    For the diagonal case the number of algs is the same, but joining two 9-move CLS should work also ( not sure it's always possible with two ninemovers)

    EDIT: some exsample algs
    R U' R U' R U2 R U' R U' R (11)
    R' U2 R' U2 B R' U2 R' U2 R B' R2 (12)
    R U' R U R2 U2 R' U' R U R' U R2 (13)

    when doing EOLine for ZZ, on the 2 FL and FR edges in the E slice, how do you know if they are oriented or missoriented?

    These edges are misoriented if either:
    1) The F sticker is the L or R colour
    or
    2) The F sticker is the F or B colour AND the L/R sticker is the U or D colour

    This applies to the BR and BL edges too, just replace Fs with Bs above for them.

    question: will this puzzle be allowed at a Competition if it has one side unstickered and if it has Smaz stile stickers where the stickers are bordering the part example of what im talking about

    http://iq-puzzle.com.hk/product_info...roducts_id=292

    example for unstickered side is if you have a solid red dayan cube and only put the White,Yellow,Green,Blue,and Orange set on and left red side unstickered.
