Rotationless G Perms

Seriously, these must already be on the forum somewhere, a quick search hasn't revealed much except a thread from 2008 which doesn't contain these algs.

Anyhoo, I was poking about on TellerWest's YouTube channel last night, and saw this vid on rotationless G perms. As they're adjusted versions of the 'beginner' algs many will know from Badmephisto and elsewhere, they're super-easy to learn, and I've knocked about a second off my G(d) time already just by cutting out the rotation.

G(b): R' U' R (U D') R2 U R' U R U' R U' R2 (U' D)

G(d): R U R' (U' D) R2 U' R U' R' U R' U R2 (U D')

The other two G's (not shown):

G(a): (U D') R2 U R' U R' U' R U' R2 (U' D) R' U R

G(c): (U' D) R2 U' R U' R U R' U R2 (D' U) R U' R'

Really nice algs, with execution in Teller's inimitable, finger-trick-happy style!

Enjoy!!!

These are the ones I use, except for Gb and Gd I move the D/D' from the end to the beginning, so there is no second (UD') double move. Also I don't do U at the start/end of PLLs either, as I AUF last.

They are called the French G perms, I think because they first appeared on Sebastien Felix's site.

This is not requested, but I found a new alg for the so called 'awkward' OLL case, and this seems to be the best thread to share it:



r' D' r U' r' D r2 U' r' U r U r'

(Without double layer turns: L' F' L U' L' F L2 F' L' U L F L')

R' U R' U' R D' R' D R' B2 U' B2 U R2 (14 HTM)

is a optimal v-perm that I generated using cube explorer here's a slight more speed opitmal one:

R' U R' U' R D' R' D R' y R2 U' R2 U F2

it's a alright alg. The last R' before the rotation it the worst part. Other than that it pretty good. But fancy finger trick could fix that.


What do you think of it?

I'm pretty sure I've seen that alg before performed differently
