    Collection of places to learn methods

    I've seen many threads asking where to learn methods, algorithms etc., so I made this thread so people don't have to search for individual forums, they just have to look here. If you know any useful places, post them here and they may end up on the list. The list will gradually get bigger, so if...

    algorithm vs intuitive??

    I currently use Fridrich intuitive f2l and i can solve my cube in around 35 seconds on an average.... i want to ask is learning the algorithm f2l worth it???? will it help me improve.. i can currently solve my f2l n 20-25 seconds....

    looking for an algorithm

    hey! i'm looking for a particular algorithm. i can solve the rubiks cube with the fridrich method, but only until PLL. i'm too lazy to learn 21 algorithms for PLL.. so i found out another algorithm that you have to do after OLL. but i can't remember it and i didnt write it down :D...

    5x5 Rubenking edge pieces

    I use Andy Klise's 5x5 guide algorithms. To exchange two edge pieces I use: Lw' U² Lw' U² F² Lw' F² Rw U² Rw' U² Lw² Unfortunately this doesn't work for a Rubenking 5x5 because it messes up the centres. Are there suggestions for an alternative algorithm?

    Faster big cube algs?

    Hey guys. I was thinking earlier today about the algs to solve parity on big cubes. These algs use slice moves, and can do things that are impossible on a 3x3, such at flipping a single edge. I was wondering if this could be used to make OLL and PLL cases better. The advantage is you can use...

    New 2x2 L-orientation (to my knowledge)

    L' U L U F U' F' I havent seen this anywhere else. I figured it out while messing around with my cube. Front left: Faces you Front right: Faces up Back left: Faces up Back right: Faces right For CLL, it swaps the front two cubies

    Human Thistlethwaite Help/Discussion

    Hello all, Recently I have been interested in learning human thistlethwaite, but the very first step is quite a stumbling block. I know about orienting edges from petrus, but this is quite different and I don't quite understand. Would someone please explain this or make a video explaining...

    Recently I realized there are not enough things named after me (sad I know). So I decided to devise a ZBLL alternative to be named after me (I'd like to make it very clear I am not advertising this as something to be learned in place of OLL/PLL but rather for people who are considering learning...

    Mnemonics for Algorithms

    I just heard this one from a friend that had problems remembering the A-Perm: R2 B2 R F R' B2 R F' R ' = And Warning, explicit content I hope more people will list tricks like this

    One-Answer 3x3x3 Question Thread

    Is this a thread where I get to ask a question? :confused: What makes an alg a "2-gen?" I've heard this term and I don't understand.

    N Perms - What's yours?

    How's it guys. I've seen loads of you post about using J perms as N perms, but with a R U R' before and after, or something along those lines. I can't seem to find it, and i hate the N perms i have now. Please post your N perms here :) Thanks in advance :)

    [Help Thread] Roux Discussion and Help

    I can't tell from the images on: if the edge you can't see matters for step 4a. I also find this step to be tedious and frustrating most of the time, does anyone have any tips? Thanks :D

    [Help Thread] Algorithm Memorization Discussion

    At the point i am at now i guess it be about time to learn OLL, however theres 57 of them, i already know about 18 from PLLs and some memorization here and there. Now i want to learn the rest of them, right now i have notecards layed out with the pattern on one side and the alg on the back...
