If you're going to go about it like that, then make sure you use AUF's. For example, if you have an unpermutated cube, brute solve using all the PLL's i gave you, and if those don't solve it, apply a U turn, then try again, continue for a total of 3 AUF's.
Here's my configuration algorithms for CubeAssistant. They're just the standard ones I use.
Each case is identified with the following: "Axxxxxxxxx" (9 x's)
x is: (0) Oriented, (1) Rotated...
In the settings there is an option under the Solver/General tab called 'Cancel between phases'. If you just uncheck that, then the solver won't cancel out moves between phases.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'weirdly distorted'. Are you talking about the borders around the cubies? They...
This means that the last F2L pair is the start of the OLL.
Here is an example:
Lets say we have the C OLL that has the algorithm: RUR2U'R'FRURU'F'
Setup your cube with this: FUR'U'R'F'RUR
The solver will see that the F2L pair is out. It will solve the F2L...

If you don't have a cap without a sticker on it, I suppose you could lightly apply some scotch tape over the cap to prevent the sticker from peeling. Just remove the tape afterwards. Is this a good idea?
