R' F2 L2 U2 D' R' B' D2 R L2 U2 L U2 R B2 L' U2 R D L2

I didn't get an amazing time with this scramble but there were 2 free pairs (green-yellow and green-white) and I managed to preserve both so I'm very happy about that.

z' // inspection
U2 D' R' B' F2 * D // cross - * L' U' L to preserve green-yellow pair
y' U' R' U R // 1st pair
y' U R' U R // 2nd pair - could've done R' U2 R to save one move but oh well
y L U2 L' U' L U L' // 3rd pair
U L' U' L U' L' U L // 4th pair
U' F (U R U' R') F' + U' R U2' R2' U' R2 U' R2' U2' R // OLL
U + T perm // PLL

A better solution would've been to insert the green-white pair before the green-yellow one : I would've rotated less

z' // inspection
U2 D' R' B' F2 L' U' L D // cross
L' U2 L // 1st pair
y' U' R' U' R // 2nd pair
etc

Have you ever gotten a REALLY lucky scramble, where you start with a semi-solved cube?

I got this scramble for the 2x2x2 form JNetCube timer:
L B2 D L D2 L' D F' U' R F2 D B2 U' F' L D F' U2 R2 B R' B2 U' F2




Anybody have any?
That's a long 2x2 scramble, and B moves? I have never seen anything like that.
I also have never used JNetCube timer and from the replies it sounds pretty sketchy lol
