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.
