Do people know about the alternate way to switch corners. Its much faster. This one:
y' (RUR'F') (rUR'U') r'FR2U'R'

For this case in PLL. To switch corners. Sorry I went offtopic suddenly.

OK so I tried for weeks to find good fingering for the common RUR'y-style G-perms, without regrips or rotations, and was never really satisfied. The algs just seem difficult to execute smoothly, and in most cases involve some awkward movements. I hate G-perms! So I went looking for alternative algs, and found these (they're not on the wiki).

Ga = D' R2 U R' U R' U' R U' R2 [D U'] R' U R
Gb = D R' U' R [U D'] R2 U R' U R U' R U' R'2
Gc = D R'2 U' R U' R U R' U R2 [D' U] R U' R'
Gd = D' R U R' [U' D] R2 U' R U' R' U R' U R2

All with headlights to the left. Source: http://absolutemind.pagesperso-orange.fr/pll2h-angl.html

These are a bit longer but seem to flow so much better and within an hour or two I had them faster than my old awkward G-perms :p. Does anyone know of any videos or fingertricks for these algs? Does anyone else use them?

I don't like the common G-perms either and have been using ones similar to what you posted. Using [U, D'] or [U', D] moves except with the headlights all on the right. I think the ones I use flow a little better, but I haven't tried the ones you posted out.

I got the ones I use from TellerWest's YouTube page. Search TellerWest YouTube g perm and the video will pop up. Very fun to perform.

Those are the ones, thanks! Here's the vid. Pity that Ga and Gc aren't shown in the video. Gb and Gd are identical to the above algs except the leading D/D' is moved to the end. Also a trailing U/U' which I dislike on PLLs as I don't align to F2L until the end!

By just messing around without thinking I found this J-Perm:

F U' R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R' F' R U R' F'

I don't know whether anyone's found it before but I think it's really good. No regrips, too.

EDIT: I just checked and it's not on the Wiki. I think this could be a very good alternative to the current standard algs :).

Really like that alg.

Similar to this Yperm: F R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R' F' R U R' U' F'

The U' goes from 2nd to 2nd last.

Been using it for months. I don't understand why it's not popular, it's very T-permy.

a new fast chameleon oll algorithm?

i was messing around and found the chameleon algorithm :R U R' U' L' U R U' M.
it took a lot of getting used to but now it flows a bit better than the one i (and most other people use) which is r U R' U' r' F R F'.
to execute hold it so the 2 unsolved corners are on the left.
if you found this before me or have already seen it, forgive me and i will close this post.:confused:

Awesome! But instead of M it's M' x'

It's a nice alg but imo the rotation at the end isn't worth it.
I was hoping this would solve one of the other 5 chameleon COLL cases but it's just the same as the regular one :(

Was messing around with stuff randomly, found some algs that might be nice
Y: R' U2 R U R' U R2 U' R' U2 R U' R' U2 R' D' R U R' D R
N: R U R' U R U2' R' U' R U' R' U2 R U' R' U2 R' D' R U R' D R
V: R U' R' U2 R U' R' U2 R' D' R U R' D R U' R U R' U R U2' R' (U')
E: R U' R' U2 R U' R' U2 R' D' R U R' D R L' U2 L U L' U L (U)

Maybe good for OH or bigcubes coz mainly RU? I dunno, I like the N and the Y from the back though. Took me a while to realise I now know diag (anti)sune COLL :p.

Fun bonus: l' U l' U R' U' (R l) U2 r' U' r U l
