    [Help Thread] How to Get Faster using the Fridrich / CFOP Method

    My advice probably isn't that good but since nobody's replied on this: I recommend you focus and improve your F2L, at 20 seconds for cross/F2L you should look into look-ahead if you haven't already. Cyboux's video on F2L look-ahead is really good imo. Recommend you watch the video from start to...

    How should I improve my times now?

    If you were you I'd just start learning them now, they shouldn't interferer with your F2L progress and it's definitely a faster LL than LBL last layer. I'd also start looking into look-ahead for F2L.

    How should I improve my times now?

    I think you can start learning the 4LLL algorithms now, there aren't many and it doesn't take long to learn at all. Other than that it's just practice and practice, I wouldn't bothe with 3LLL until you're <30 seconds or so. For now imo you should focus on cross/F2L. It took me ~2.5 months to get...

    Is my time slow, and how can I get better?

    Yes. I haven't learnt 3LLL because I haven't bothered with it yet, but probably should soon.

    Is my time slow, and how can I get better?

    Imo you should definitely get something better, your improvement may be limited by your cube. Even something cheap like a GuanLong($4) would do.

    CFCE Certification!!

    Well it seems he's referring to CFCE. Not sure if this is a intended joke or not lol.

    One-Answer 3x3x3 Question Thread

    I would suggest you start by learning F2L. It will probably be hard and make you slower at first(I took a minute to just do the F2L stage at first), but it's what will really give you a speed boost once you get good at it. There are quite a few good guides on F2L on youtube, but I learnt from...

    [Help Thread] Lubrication Thread

    After not having a proper lubricant for a long time I decided lubed my GuanLong with olive oil... Used ~2 drops. It seems to have somewhat worked well as the cube is much faster, but is it actually ok to lube my cube with olive oil?

    Slow Last Layer

    Alright, thank you for all the replies and tips. Will really drill my algs and learn full PLL soon.

    Slow Last Layer

    Yes. I mentioned in my post. :P

    Slow Last Layer

    My last layer takes the same amount of time as my cross and F2L take altogether(~15 seconds). According to this page the last layer is meant to be a much shorter step. :S What can I do to decrease my last layer time other than just practice, which is what I've been doing? Could it just be that...

    Critique on Solve Video

    Not sure if this is the right place to post videos...but here's a video of me doing a few solves. Recorded with facecam so quality and angle might be pretty bad, sorry. I use 2 Look OLL and PLL. Any help, tips or critique on what I should to do optimize my solve and get faster would be great...
