Hello.. I am looking for some easier 2x2 methods other than the Ortega and the Beginners method.

Thanks!

Edit: Sorry.. you can just ignore this thread now!

Sorry to break it to you, but there really aren’t any viable 2x2 methods other than Ortega/Layer by Layer. I know it may be difficult, but you will be much happier in the long run if you stick to one of those two. Just learn an algorithm a day, try to get it into muscle memory, and you should be good! Don’t try to rush it. (Also, if you don’t have one already, get a decent 2x2.)

yep... although you could solve all but 3 pieces intuitively (3/4 of a layer -> intuitively solve 2 top layer corners) and then finish with a few commutators.

Agreed, although if this person doesn’t know Ortega, I highly doubt they understand commutators. You’re right about the lack of algorithms, but I highly doubt that approach is “easy”. I was thinking about this though, so kudos for bringing it up!
