here is a video about my f2l method:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAG-JcNTXgg

here is a review of my method:

1. build a 1x1x3 line by paring up two corners and an edge

2. expand your 1x1x3 line to a 1x2x3 rectangle by adding two edges

3. expand you 1x2x3 rectangle to a 2x2x3 bloc by(once again),getting two edges in place

4. add a 1x2x2 bloc to your 2x2x3 bloc so as to get your f2l minus a c/e pair

5. finish off with a Fridrich style f2l pair or a begginer style f2l pair

-----------------------------------A ''Unique'' Block building F2L Method-----------------------------------

This video is about a method I've created to solve the first two layers of the rubik's cube. I've decided to call it the ''Unique'' Block Building f2l method.This f2l method allows you to solve the first two layers in an average of 29 moves without having to learn advanced concepts. This means that this method is both suitable for speed and fewest moves.See video for details.

--------------------------------------- 6 Quick Tips To Success-----------------------------------------

here are six tips to help you out:

1. during the 15 second inspection time, plan ahead not only the 1x1x3 line, but also find the two edges needed to get a 1x2x3 rectangle

2. to avoid cube rotations during the second step, place your 1x1x3 line in the left hand corner of the bottom layer and use only U , u , R , and r moves to get your 1x2x3 rectangle

3. to avoid cube rotations during the third step, place your 1x2x3 rectangle in the left corner of the bottom layer and use only U , u , and R moves to get a 2x2x3 bloc

4. if you would like to fix bad edges you can do it between steps 3 and 4 or between steps 4 and 5

5. instead of adding a 1x2x2 bloc in step 4 and a corner edge pair in step 5, you can simply add an edge and two Fridrich f2l pairs

6. to avoid cube rotations during the fourth and fith steps, use some d turns

----------------------------------------------Example Solve---------------------------------------------

scramble :U' R2 B F' U L2 R U2 B2 F2 D2 U2 F R' D U' B D2 R2 B2 L' R2 D2 U2 R

solution: F R' D B2 L' B U D R' D B2 U' F R F D L B L' B2 D B2 D' B' D B D'

note:this was a FM solution

-------------------------------------------Why Not Petrus?---------------------------------------------

Everyone keeps asking''why not petrus''. Well, first notice that my method is the same as the Petrus method except that you don't fix bad edges and that I have a different way to obtain a 2x2x3 bloc. You could fix bad edges in my method if you wanted to(personally i dont), so that isn't a problem. Therefore, we come to the question''why getting a 1x1x3 line, than a 1x2x3 rectangle, than a 2x2x3 bloc instead of getting a 2x2x2 bloc and than expanding it to a 2x2x3 bloc?'' The answer is simple: firstly, my way of getting a 2x2x3 bloc is simpler, so my method takes less time to learn and master. Also, after getting a 2x2x2 bloc, you must use R , U , and F moves to get a 2x2x3 bloc. this means more re grips. In my method, however, you can use only U , u , R, and r moves, meaning no re grips are necessary. Also, using Petrus or the ''Unique'' Block Building method depends on your preferences. Chose the method that suits your cubing style best.
