can any one solve the z bandage cube C?
I found it extremely difficult, even more difficult than the regular bandage cube.
I have already done the oll on it. I don't know how to do the j perm on the z bandage cube C.
HELP!

I don't have this specific puzzle, but I saw a very similar bandage mod on r/cubers before and thought about how to approach solving it then.

Instead of solving it "directly", try solving it into this state (assuming that the bandaged blocks are on yellow, green and red). This keeps all of the bandaged pieces as part of the F2L, so you have some amount of freedom to manipulate one F2L slot and the top layer. It might help to have another cube around set up to that state, so you can determine which pieces on the bandaged cube need to move to where.

Here's a J perm on the yellow face:

F' R // setup
F' U F // F2L
U' R U R' U' R' F R F' // CP
R U R' U R U2 R' U F' U' F U' F' U2 F // EP
U (F' U' F2 R' F' R2 U' R' U2)2 // CO
U (F' U' F2 R' F' R2 U' R' U2)3 // EO
U2 // AUF
R' F // undo setup
alg.cubing.net

The CP alg used here is R U R' U' R' F R F' (swaps the two front corners). The EP algs are Sunes/Antisunes (3-cycles).

The CO and EO algs are based on the "fliptwist" alg F' U' F2 R' F' R2 U' R' U2. If you do it once, it flips two edges and twists three corners. (Do it on a solved cube to see which pieces are affected.) If you do it twice, it twists three corners only. If you do it thrice, it flips two edges only. Very versatile alg, although it's kind of long when you have to do it multiple times.

actually I don't have the z bandage cube C puzzle, but I modded my3x3 into the same bandage pattern. I have watched on YouTube that some people who can solve the regular bandage cube can't solve the z bandage cube C. There are no tutorial out there in YouTube about the cube.

type c is rather simple bandage, If you have a specific question, apply a photo

It has 3 1x2x2 bandaged.

It's clear. And what is the question? What can't you rearranged?

A Jb perm on a 1x2x2 face(yellow).

the second move 'F' is already bandaged.

You have wrong hold. Try from other face

on which face should I do the alg on?

I tried to do the alg on the blue face (I have completed the blue face) and yellow on top, and then I got bandaged on the forth move 'D2'. It is bandaged by the green 1x1x2.

there is only 6, 3 of them are fit!
it's so difficult to try?

So, I was making a bandaged cube and as I left my room to get stickers, I saw my brother scrambling it... so now I have a messed up bandaged cube without stickers and don't know how to get it back to the original shape!
make two photos, i can do you solve formel
