Hi ilikecubing. I did eventually figure out how to solve the square-1 on my own. My method is terrible, and only averages about 3 minutes. However, this is one of my proudest accomplishments in cubing, as every part of my method is my own, even the parity fix Are you working on any puzzles trying to solve them on your own? I've only ever done with with square-1, every other puzzle I have gotten help either in the form of the parity algs or even the full method.
