What I was talking about is if sides are even and corners are odd(and vice versa), that means I made a mistake... they have to both be even or odd.

I just don't get why sometimes no matter how many times I recheck it, it comes out un even, because I know that and even number on both means no parity and odd means parity.
Ah ok, pay attention to the cycle breaks. When this happen to me, almost always cause it's cycle breaks.

Between the time I had responded I went back and looked at a scramble that had me scratching my head, so I set it aside, and sure enough there was on edge on a cycle break that was throwing me off.

Thanks!

I suggest learning Old Pochmann method. It's two algorithms plus a possible third - and you already know the algs. So that just leaves learning the memorization. I won't try to explain it in a post but you're basically memorizing a series of piece swaps that will result in a solved cube. You do that by memorizing the letters of the places that need to be swapped.

I found Speedcubereview's tutorial to be the best of the ones I tried.

This is a good tutorial. I used J Perm's v2 BLD tutorial, so you may want to try that as well:


J Perm has a v3, which is newer, but I personally found the v2 most helpful
