Average of 5: 23.91
1. 23.32 R2 U L2 F2 U L2 F2 D2 U F2 R2 B' L B' D' U2 B F U2 L' U'
2. (22.00) U2 R2 F L2 D2 R2 U2 F' L2 B' L2 R' B L' F' L D' L R' U'
3. 23.08 D R' F2 L' U R2 D' B2 L F U2 R2 F2 R2 F B2 U2 D2 R2 B'
4. (30.20) R2 U' R' B2 U' B' D R' B' R' D2 F2 R' L' F2 D2 R F2 B2 R2
5. 25.33 B2 R' U2 F2 L F2 R F2 R B2 L F' D U2 F2 L F2 D' R' U2 L2

This is my first successful average of 5 (without any DNFs) using Porkynator's second approach to ZZ-D. This involves solving the permutation of the corners BEFORE completion of the first block, as is the true definition of the missing link.

See this page for details about the variant.

Any tips for me? Any tips on improving the method?

I reuploaded in HD.

Do you know full 2gll?
I know T, Pi, and some U. But I usually don't waste time recalling those algs during speedsolves.

That CP recognition looks super hard. With more practice, how fast do you think you can consistently do it?
Recognition can probably be cut down to 1-1.5 seconds. Add that to the correction alg and the placement of the 3 corners, and you're looking at a 3-4 second investment for a 1L 2GLL.

Because the algs are so short and the recognition would be the same, you would end up making around the same time investment for both TH and OH. Therefore, the time sacrificed is less significant in OH, making this a more viable OH method. (just as porkynator expected)
