My goal is to be sub 10 with Roux. I currently average 15 seconds with roux. I know what I need to work on. I just don't know what to focus on first. I want to work on the following.
~7 FB movecount --> looking for offset/one move pairs
<16 SB movecount --> practicing lookahead and pair first approach
1 AUF CMLL --> learning better recognition for sune and anti-sune
LSE --> learn EOLRa and DFDB recognition for 4c instead of BU which I use currently

Any help would be appreciated. I might do Cubeast ao12 later just for stats.

I lost my charger to my smart cube and so I just recorded an Ao5. This is mostly for documentation, but feel free to flame my solves.

I just read these 2 threads and they have some pretty cool stuff. I think I am going to start with LSE since Roux is a top down method. So drilling EOLR sets then learning DFDB well enough to explain it in a video, then metronome solves. Now I'm not going to do that all today, but thats what is on my list

I know 4/0, 2o/2, and 2a/2 EOLRs pretty well and can do some EOLRb/ AUF tricks with them! Not quite muscle memory. Any way to get MU algs in muscle memory would be appreciated.

Update: I learned 0/2 but didn't drill it. I have school again, so I will try to stay on top of that enough to do some training.
Also I'm making an awesome 4c recognition method that makes LSE 2 look(with EOLRa) and you only need to see the U and F faces, but it's quite complicated right now. Basically I'm trying to make Y2L recognition. Also it should work with UF UB and MC. At least that's the goal!

Ok, I fixed UFUB recognition if you are using this as a normal 4c recognition system, but I have not generated/solved all the cases for a 1 look version for when you do UFUB. It also works for misoriented centers, but yet again I have not done the 1 look cases. So it works as a 4c recognition system where you never have to look at the sides. I'll make a video soon, once I let it marinate for a while and to hopefully be able to explain it better. Look for a new 4c recognition system video in the next week.
*Edit I have not came up with a solution to when you do EOLRb and you cannot recognize from an M2 away from inserting them. Hopefully a simple fix. This is getting more and more complex as I continue to realize all the things a 4c recognition system needs to put up with.

Also I learned 0/2 EOLR, but onionhoney's trainer wasn't working. I'll try to fix whatever problem I'm having where it doesn't ever put the UL UR edges in the D layer for the 0/2 case.

Hi GodCubing
Oh, hello.

Update: I am going to be working on actually planning my FB in inspection along with eolr; I have done it in the past I've just been to lazy to actually plan it out. Hopefully this will just be making a habit and not actually require my brain to get bigger lol.

Ok, I've got to make a concrete plan. Either make a video on 4c recognition, learn the rest of EOLR and drill like crazy, or gen some IDR algs for 42

Here is an ao5 for people to critique if they want. I found a lot of my flaws just by reconstructing them.
solve 1 misscramble no recon, but I remember doing a big brain FB (15.59)
solve 2 to be fair I haven't technically learned that EOLR yet (14.16)
solve 3 yet again I messed up a great LSE (15.46)
solve 4 CMLL (14.72)
solve 5 planned FBDR into poor pair choice (14.47)

Based on this I'd say I need to do some metronome solves so I stop double AUFing and learn the rest of EOLRa. Also, I'm now a believer in planning FBDR in inspection.

Ok, today I relearned how to do YruRU style CP, and applied it to my new 2x2 method listed here. I think I will re gen the algs for variant E, but I might use F because it is less algs. I also tried the 2cep method for 4x4, but I failed. Im thinking about making a 5 more blockbuilding tips video, or one where I discuss a few methods I think are cool.

EDIT: nah variant E is better because I could plan CP and the DBR in inspection
