This thread will be similar to the thread for Roux example solves, except for Petrus.
So, I give a scramble, and you write down your own Petrus solution. The solution can either be a "first try solution", which means you would do that during a regular speedsolve (or you can even do an actual...
So, I feel like ZZ is kinda failing me, and I just don’t know what I can do besides grind solves. I know EOcross, my F2L is really fast , and my last layer is meh. Idk, I just feel like ZZ isn’t the way. So for the rest of this month, I’m gonna use CFOP (because I was already a previous CFOP...
Yes, I'm serious. I want to see if Petrus can be used as a viable method compared to CFOP, Roux, and ZZ. It'll probably be a decade committment, but I think I can do it with lots of dedication. I'm currently averaging sub 30 at the time of writing, so it's going to be a long hard slog towards...
I use Petrus, and I have noticed nobody is really using it anymore. I, along with a couple of other people, am like the solitary Petrus user on this forum which is still active. The majority of users seem to be CFOP, Roux, or ZZ :(. So there isn't much discussion on how to improve on specific...
I started dedicated cubing like half way throught May, and started off using Petrus. Once I'd learnt it, I got lots of sub 3 min solves until I finally managed to break the sub 1 min barrier with practise and lots of looking through websites. That was in June. 1 month later, I got my first sub...
8.14 (Petrus), 10.71 (ZZ), 8.55 (Roux), 7.27 (CFOP), 11.49 (Freefop) = 9.13 average of 5 (9.23 mean of 5)
Cube: aolong v2
Don't have scrambles, sorry.
I'm planning on taking a bit of a break from cubing now as I have important exams coming up and I need to focus. So until summer, I won't be...
8.913, 11.194, 9.539, 10.786, 9.085, (12.931), 8.888, 8.793, 9.677, 10.500, (8.341), 10.479 = 9.785 avg12 (9.119 avg5)
Finally finished what I started! Sub 10 avg12 with CFOP, Roux, ZZ and Petrus!
My first sub 10 average of 12 with each method:
CFOP 9.85 avg12
Roux 9.82 avg12
8.37, 11.27, 9.48, (8.12), (11.37) = 9.71 avg5
A bit lucky :P
It was already a 9.71 avg5 after the 8.12, but I managed to roll a 12.73 with the 11.37 so I included that solve instead.
Cube: aolong v2
YTUWRs with petrus, I think (7/10/2015).
9.74, 10.56, 10.56, 11.20, 10.01, 11.31, 13.34, (14.76), 10.47, 10.63, 13.07, (9.58) = 11.09
The 11.09 is my PB avg12. My avg5 PB is 9.90
First 5 are the 10.38 avg5.
Do you guys know of any faster? I only know of Porkynator's 10.63.
Solves 1 2 and 4 were lucky
solve 5 was typical,
and solve 3 never happened.
What do you guys think, is Petrus viable for sub-10?
Let me know.
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 ?
People say this...
As some of you may remember, I proposed a Petrus based CP-block method a while back. The problem with it was that it made Petrus even more inefficient than it already was just in order to have a 1LLL.
I never dropped the idea of CP-blocks, however...

I'm making this thread for all of those ideas you have that are interesting, yet are not fully developed. This is a place to post them. I have come up with many ideas and didn't want to post a new thread for every one of them when most don't get very far. Perhaps if...
I have been trying to speed solve for awhile, but haven't practiced like I should, and my brothers has reffered me here to learn more. I am among the few petrus users and have a single record of 30 seconds (which was a fluke will an ll skip) but average closer to 60. I am...
Just something I've been toying around with. Probably not very useful.
This is based on Petrus:
Step 1: create a 2x2x2 block with all D-layer corners placed. One of the two adjacent to the block must be oriented.
Step 2: Identify the corner swap in the U-layer and swap the corners using R...
This is really nothing special, but if you want a 1LLL, you might like it.
The concept is that you place the final pair where it can be inserted with R U' R' just like Winter Variation. WV is really awkward though, so I thought that it might be easier just to force a Sune or AntiSune ZBLL...
