I think you could show the moves being done in a slideshow (some example moves on how to make the cross, put the edges in for the second layer, etc.)
But it's a good beginners method.

Cheers, did you click on the cubes for examples? I'm worried a slideshow will be a lot of work :eek:


You should call this the sexy method
Good choice ... OK :)

Turn the top face so that the unsolved position is in the top-front. Do the sexy move once. Now solve the same way as before and the final edges will fall into place.

Somewhy I have a problem on how to do it.. WTF! :D I did it twice and at first I got the same case and then I got the flipped case.

You might want to explain what to do during the "3x more corners" step when the corner in the bottom layer is solved

(1) E-slice edges are placed before D-layer corners.
(2) Placement of the final 5 corners is broken down into 3+2 with only sexy move used to solve the final two.
