This is the thread for the 2x2 method called L5C, or Last Five Corners. This is also called 1LLS, for One Look Last Slot.
The beginning of this discussion may have started here. There's probably somewhere else this was first thought of, and if so, tell me.
L5C is a method where you solve a...
In 3BLD I reached moment, when most off my solves are in 1:00-1:25 range with occasional sub1 solves. During practice I usually have 50-70% success rate.
Almost all of my practice routine until now was just to sit and do solves. I feel like I am not making further progress this way, so I would...
While the most efficient way to solving Pyraminx blindfolded would be just to 1-look the solve, I'm not good enough at Pyraminx to do that, so I devised this Pyraminx BLD method.
When you get the puzzle, put it into your orientation by finding the 3 tips that contain your F face color; orient...
Most cubers probably know this but I go over some of the common methods for improving overall lookahead and improving cross and f2l and also cross to f2l transition.
Aimed at newer cubes to intermediate cubers.
Hey! I personally love pyraminx, and since it's such a simple puzzle, I thought it'd be cool to learn to solve it blindfolded! However, because not too many people do pyraminx, and fewer blindsolve it, my searches have come up mainly empty. I solved it once BLD, but it was extremely lucky. I...
Hello everyone! I am in the process of creating a new method for a 3x3 solve. It has 4 basic steps:
Double cross (cross on white/yellow or any two opposite sides for colour-neutral solvers)
Corner layer set (putting the corners on their correct layers)
Corner orientation and permutation...
Hi anybody that possibly is seeing this post. I am trying to learn a new method that is not too difficult but will still keep solves close to a minute or less. I Have been using the method Pogobat for about 2 months and can get solves as low as a minute. i know thats not good xD. But i would...
First sub 10 avg12 with roux!:D
10.79, 9.11, (11.34), 9.74, 8.94, 9.84, 10.11, 11.00, 10.10, (8.72), 9.72, 8.87 = 9.82
Here's my first sub 10 avg12 with CFOP 2 years ago: link
I average about 9.5 with CFOP and 11 with Roux.
Since I learned the begginer's method I learned some tricks that I can now incorporate into solves (mostly edge insertion). Here are some of example solves:
/* Scramble */
U B2 U L F2 U' L' B2 R B R2 L2 B R2 B' U2 L2 B2 D2 R2
/* Solve */
z2 B2 u' R' U2 F2 D // cross
L' U L2 U' L' //...
I use the Fridrich method to solve the cube except that I mirror OLLs and PLLs in order to reduce the number of unique algorithms that I have to remember. Since I didn't find anything relevant on the Internet I thought I'd make a page that described the concept as well as mirrors of the OLLs...
I decided to make this video to show some Waterman solves. I might make more in the future. I think a few people have asked for some walkthroughs in the Waterman discussion thread, and, being one of the only Waterman users around, I decided to make a video. Apologies for the...
I searched this forum and I could not find a thread for learning Petrus, so I thought why not make one?
So here is the tutorial on Petrus. I hope you like it and give me your feedback on it :)
Thanks in Advance
I hope you like it and tell me where I can improve ?

Hello, this is my first every post (yay!). I was wondering about what size cube to get. I'm 11 so I have small hands. My hand is exactly 6 inches from my palm to the end of my middle finger. I currently use a 56mm Zhanchi and the 57mm Fansgshi. I think I need a smaller cube such as 45-53mm but...
Hi everybody I'm a new speedcuber!
So far my Records are: (all AVGs are 3of5)
3x3 Single: 25.43 Avg: 40.52
2x2 Single: 5.50 Avg: 17.00
Pyraminx Single: 6.68 Avg: 16.00
All single times.
Bump Cube: 4:04.00
What is the easiest method to get...
I am a guy that is an avid cuber. I have been cubing for almost a year now :D and its time for me to learn a different method (currently I only know beginners method). So I am in need of some help on what you would recommend as a good advanced method. And if you could also post...
