I am currently having trouble with the cross so I made this thread for you guys to help me get better at the cross!

So this is how it works.
I will post a scramble and then someone will post that scramble and solve the cross fast as possible and post it then you make a scramble and so on.
YES I REALIZE THIS IS SIMILAR TO ANOTHER THREAD BUT THAT ONE WAS SORTA OUTDATED AND THIS ONE YOU TRY TO SOLVE THE CROSS FAST AS POSSIBLE

So the first scramble is -
D R' D' F' B' R' F2 R' B D B2 L2 D' R' B2 L' D B L R F D' B' R' U2

EDIT - Thank you Sneaklyfox for pointing out that. yes, in the fewest moves, and i prefer white but do what ever you want! :)

Question: What do you mean by "fast as possible"? Do you mean fewest moves? Also, is this open to cross on any colour or just white or what?

Scramble: D R' D' F' B' R' F2 R' B D B2 L2 D' R' B2 L' D B L R F D' B' R' U2
Yellow cross: y2 F R' D F2 L' (I'm w/y neutral)
If you want white cross: z2 L' D' F' D' F' R2 D2

Next scramble: F U2 F2 B R D F U2 D B' R F2 B2 U2 L2 F2 R' U2 B2 D2 L2

I would just go ahead and do the second on bottom, due to the simplicity. I usually solve on top and do the rotation during the cross.

Oh my apologies, I did that wrong. I used the OP for the first and Ydded's for the second due to it being bolded.

Next Scramble: U2 B2 R B2 L' U2 R2 U2 B2 D2 L' D' B2 F2 R B D2 U2 B2 L U'
