Since this topic is closed, I add here what I think can be a easy-to-remember help:

T-perm can be split in:
1. Sexy move;
2. sledgehammer;
3. sledgehammer;
4. a couple of rotations and a QTM;
5. sledgehammer;
6. (optional) another couple of rotations.

I added the algorithm to the wiki (now it is Alg.10).

The starting one is
R U R' U' R' F R F' R' F R F' U' F' U F U'
that becomes
(R U R' U') (R' F R F') (R' F R F') y' x' F' (R' F R F') x y

Best wishes,
Lorenzo

So there's this adjacent parity alg for swapping UF and UR: [R U R' U' Uw2 Rw2 U2 : 2R2]

You can rearrange it a bit to get an alg to swap UB and UL: [Uw2 R U R' U' Rw2 U2 : 2R2]

Might be useful to avoid doing two U2 AUFs, but probably not that good on its own because you might need to regrip before doing the inverse sexy (or do it from an awkward angle).

alternatively Rw U Rw' R U' Rw' U' Rw U Rw U' Rw' U' Rw' R U Rw U R' U' R', very TPSable but long, it may be better than the standard though.

Triple post

rotationless N perm
R D' F2 R2 U' L F2 L' U R2 F2 D R'

this is just a setup to a ZBLL
i found a neat finger trick for this alg

l B’ D2 x R2’ U’ r U2 r’ U R2 x’ D2 B l'

you push the B moves with your left ring and double flick D2s with you right pinky/ring

Weird optimal L4C alg: x U R (U' D) L (U D') R' (U' D) r' B'

I normally just use r U R' U' M U R U' R' F R U R' U' F' for this ZBLL case. The weird alg is marginally faster, but I can't execute it reliably because the slice moves keep making my cube lock up.

Another weird optimal ZBLL alg from the same set: R U R' U' M' U R2 B' R' B U' r'.

I unearthed an obscure alg from algdb.net and added my personal touch.
I had to play it at least half a dozen times to convince me it does the job.

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

I feel like this alg (J cancelled into T) is a better EP alg for megaminx than L R U2 L' U R' L U' R U2 L' U2 R'

Or maybe its just that my lefty moves suck

This thread (formerly Show your cube solutions, now moved here) is to show your cube solutions. You may show solutions for multiple cubes, either in one post or in separate posts. Make sure to show all algorithms you use, and orientations. It is most recommended to use a picture like I do.

I'll start with my 2x2 solution, which is Ortega I recently switched to:


Sorry, I made a mistake; the x cube rotations should be x'.
