This is to announce I can finally solve the Rubik's Cube using the Fridrich method without looking at the instructions. It took me 8 months: one month for F2L and 7 months for 4-look last layer.

Yes, I am a very slow learner. I heard some people say they learned F2L in a day and the last layer in a month. I am still vey happy and proud. I set a very difficult and time consuming goal for myself and could finally do it after hard work and perseverance.

I still have to do drills and practice, and now at least I don't have to look at the guide on my iPhone while I do solves. People won't be able to say that I'm cheating.

Finally improved on my OH mo3.
Still not sub-12 though, so that's a little frustrating.

12.04 -> 12.02

13.12, 11.04, 11.90, 15.22, 13.74

The ao5 is very good (12.9) but my PB is also 12.04 so I didn't beat that.

Um what is happening. I got a 2:25 5x5 single. My best a week ago was 3:13.

Wow that's awesome!

I think as long as you are practicing a decent amount you will average sub 12 in a couple months because your solutions are efficient, you just need to work on lookahead.

Great job! I remember your first post, it's awesome to see you've done it!

I just spent about two hours on my new speed cube and took about 15 seconds off my average
I remember that feeling! Cherish it because the time drops necessarily get smaller as you get faster : )

Not speed related but I got my Axis cube solved finally. I did it intuitively, last layer was an absolute pain and I don’t think I’ll be scrambling this one anytime soon...most certainty The most difficult 3x3 shape mod I’ve tried.
Dude shape mods are so rewarding when you finally work them out, good stuff. It gives you that feeling of accomplishment at solving a real puzzle, that you sort of lose in the traditional 3x3 once you become pretty fast at it. I've been able to play with a bunch over time, I think I have the mirrorblocks, windmill, Fisher, and axis cubes. Next step when you've quite recovered should be the ghost cube...basically axis cube and mirrorblocks combined. I solved it once over the course of several hours and that will last me for a while!

First counting sub-10 in an ao100 for me.
Second time I've got a counting sub-10 in an ao100, and it's two of them at once!

Okay, so I improved pretty much all of my 3x3 PBs yesterday and the single about a half hour ago! I did so after switching to my backup MF3RS2M which I think is now my new main cube.

Single: 7.84 (First Sub 8)
Ao5: 10.88 (First Sub 11)
Ao12: 11.88 (First Sub 12)
Ao50: 12.68 (First Sub 13)
Ao100: 12.80 (First Sub 13)

I am perplexed and happy with these results.

I'm just starting up on this forum, but here are my goals:

Legit sub 8 for 3x3 (didn't know 8 seconds didn't count as a sub 8 solve)
sub 15 solve for 3 BLD
sub 30 solve for 4x4
Maybe sub 40 for OH (stretching it a bit though)

Sub 40 OH is extremely easy and the rest of those are ridiculously hard, your 3BLD goal is literally sub WR

I know I average 45 minutes on 3 blind but I am sub 24 OH.
