I've been taking a look at this recently: recognising the OLL case when you have parity on 4x4x4 or 6x6x6, and solving in 1 look. I couldn't find a thread on it already, which was surprising, but since I have all the cases generated I thought I should gauge what people think of it.

There are 54 cases for 1 or 3 flipped edges (27 each), or 36 without mirrors. For some cases, the best thing to do is standard OLL parity alg + OLL alg, though it is helpful to try and avoid bad OLL cases when doing this. For some cases I have found a cool trick (my inspiration was conjugating the parity alg with B' R'). So far I know about 25 cases.

My favourite trick: R' F R F' [OP] R U' R'

Does anyone use this already? Maybe just for a few cases? Let me know what you think, and feel free to point out any typos I made in the algs and/or better algs for any cases.
