How many steps does Fridrich-ZB have?

How many steps does my proposed method have?

my summer's variation algs

Ive always wanted to skip oll. A thought that occured to me a few months ago with fridrich was to orient all edges with the third f2l pair, then with the last pair do the corners. This will leave just pll at the end. This ended up being more difficult than i thought. When i learned zz, winter variation immediately caught my eye. I had a similar thought but appearantly i wasnt the first. I havent really found a "summer variation" list, so i started making one now that im out of school.

this is a very raw list.I just finished generating it. It has alot of notes on it and i have not chosen the best algs for certain cases so there are two or three for some cases. I think winter/summer variation is very good. I am trying to do zz with winter/summer variation and then pll as my main method, moving away from my old method, full fridrich. i have just started using zz like a month ago so my times are still around 30-40 seconds. i am not doing full winter/summer variation yet, i am going to practice it this summer. i feel zz with winter has alot of potential.

the three numbers before each alg are used to identify it. after doing RU'R' there will be one corner in URB, this refers to the first number. 0 means correctly oriented, 1 means one turn ccw, and 2 means one turn cw. the second number refers to the ULB corner, and the third to ULF.

insertion sune is a common thing with winter/summer, so many of those do not even have an alg, just "rur' sune" or "insertion sune" is all i wrote. all algs are under 11 moves i believe. i will clean the list up and post a neater one later. this is just notes as i said.

222 R'ULU'R2UR'L'

i know summer's variation is not the official name for it, i, like others , think having two sets of algs called winter and summer is pretty cool.

Sorry 'bout the bump, but I have been really interested in learning this, and although there are algs provided and all, I'm still looking for a list like this (with pics ), as I don't understand all this numbering thingy and how it works.

The numbering is explained here. And nope, I doubt there are images.

My brain cannot comprehend that complicated explanation.

Also, just think about it, why would people even bother learning WV instead of SV? Most of the time your LS would probably end with R U R' and not R U' R'.

Thanks for that! Although I'm sad (yet happy) to say that I have finally managed to learn the notation But I still feel tempted to print this......

I don't agree. I'm pretty sure it's almost equal. Depending on how you setup your pairs, I think you can make either one more common than the other as several F2L cases can be solved as either WV or SV.

I am currently genning the algs for COLS, instead of the steps being
COLS
Step 1: Cross + first 3 slots
Step 2: Setup last corner-edge pair
Step 3: COLS
Step 4: 14 algs thingy OR J/Y perms
Step 5: EPLL OR ELL
It would be:
Cross
F2L-1
COLS - Currently developing speed optimized version for Misoriented Edges(Oriented edges cases already done with ZZ-C)
CPELL(COALL) - 157 algset - Speed-optimized version created and published by Cubeur-Manchot

Alg tally isn't that bad: 959 algs.

Edit 1: Manchot and I recalculated it again, it is actually 953 algs for COLS alone, 1110 algs total.

This seem like a really cool idea for someone like sub10. I'm sub 35 and I can see this becoming really big, and iight try and learn it later in my cubing career

I'm getting close to sub-10, I average mid to high-11s

Nice 7 year bump

I just thought of something:
ZZ + COLS = guaranteed OLL skip

Boy was I stupid not to have thought of this before.

Now it's a battle between ZZ + MGLS and ZZ + COLS. I personally think MGLS wins though With MGLS, you get a 3-move ELS 4/5 of the time, and an ELS skip 1/5 of the time.
With ZZ winter variation skips OLL

BUt you need to set up the pair. With COLS(In this case, it's just ZZ-C), you skip from any F2L Case

Oh, just a quote from WoowyBaby on somebody bumping a 12 year old thread on a really lucky scramble.
