Hello everyone! I am in the process of creating a new method for a 3x3 solve. It has 4 basic steps:

Double cross (cross on white/yellow or any two opposite sides for colour-neutral solvers)

Corner layer set (putting the corners on their correct layers)

Corner orientation and permutation (self explanatory)

Finishing the M/E slice (M or E depending on how you hold the cube)

I am still in the early stages of making this method, but I have done many solves with it, trying new algorithms, techniques, etc. The method is very intuitive and I can easily get sub-2 minute times while reading the algorithms off of the screen. Thus, I'm expecting sub-30 second times once I learn all of the algorithms by muscle memory. In total there are 28 algorithms to learn (this is only counting the cases I've found and have algorithms for). The algorithms I have are not optimal as I've used Cube Explorer for most all of them (as in all except 2 or 3). I've done it this way to save time (I can always optimize it later).

I have run into one small problem. I cannot get a quick way to orient all of the corners. To orient them all in one algorithm requires memorization of 2186 algorithms. I can't do the basic algorithms provided with CFOP and other methods because all of the algorithms don't work under my conditions. All of the algorithms I've found on the internet require at least one layer to be completely oriented. So if someone can help me with this, that'd be AWESOME.

I've provided a .zip file that contains all cases + their algorithms that I've encountered so far if you want to do some solves yourself. If you find any that I haven't written down, please inform me. I have also linked a video that has a couple of walkthrough solves (just explaining how to use the algorithms to solve the cube). ANY input is appreciated. Also, before you ask, I indeed have looked at a good bit of other methods. This one is inspired by: Beginners & CFOP (the cross idea), Roux (the M-slice turning), and Adams aka Corners First (solving corners separately from edges). I've also looked at methods like ZZ, Petrus, and Triangular Francisco. So...yea. I'd love feedback and I welcome you to do a few solves! Thank you so much for you guys' time!
