3:02.53 octahedron
Literally a 4 minutes drop
It was on the bus too, so I was trying to to turn to quickly because it's a rather loud puzzle.

Edges were quick and there were a bunch of solved centers already. I think I managed to use 3-cycle to solve 3 pieces most of the time, as opposed to just 2 or one. I'm very happy with this.

I just crushed my personal best on 4x4 with a 3:59 (yes, minutes). My goal is to be sub 2 minutes with my completely intuituve method, which looks achievable.

Edit: I'm down to 3:29. I've started practicing Roux on 3x3 since I realized that my 4x4 direct-solving method is just Roux if converted to the 3x3. I hope this will improve my lookahead, which is really the only thing making my times very slow. My 3x3 time is about 1:40.

Edit: 3:15

Edit: 3:03

I just got a new PB (11.68) and I would like to get a sub 10 PB... That would be great, I average like around 16 or 17 seconds... Some pro tips to improve at this point?

4.45 csTimer Virtual Solve

I didn't record this actual solve, but I have the scramble and reconstruction, and a video showing the solve time/tps. Doing some digging this seems to be easily top 10 solves in the world, and maybe the best ever for csTimer because every used to and still use other timers, like qcube and jflysim. My pb before was only a 7.100 so getting this was a huge surprise. I am really good at simple R U Gen and my OLL was F double sexy F' with no AUF pll skip, so I didn't have to recognize the skip which made it even faster. EDIT: just got a fullstep 7.07 single
