@icarneiro and @OreKehStrah

Would you suggest using a resource like J perm's f2l pdf to learn some efficient algorithms for certain cases? Just looked over it, I actually know 22 out of the 41 basic cases (some algorithmically, but majority muscle memory) not 12.

I think the pdf is good. Also watch jperms cross videos to get cross consistently under 6 seconds

I learned watching the jperm and BrodyTheCuber videos, I have to print the jperm pdf to learn some specific cases too

I am learning CFOP, I have been using a beginners method previously. I learned to solve the cube about a year and a half ago but never worked on getting better until the past weekish.
Old Method:
  1. White cross oriented and permuted [O+P](With white face up)
  2. White corners O+P (1st layer)
  3. Second layer O+P
  4. Yellow cross O
  5. Yellow cross P
  6. Last 4 corners P
  7. Last 4 corners O (I believe 4-7 is BLL?)
So that's what I've been doing. I can get about 1:15-1:45 with that method depending on the scramble.
I am now transitioning to CFOP and my times are worse at about 1:45-2:30 but that it mainly because I am pausing during f2l a lot as I am learning cases
Current Method:
  1. white cross in 8 or less moves (yellow face up)
  2. F2L (Lots of pausing to decide what pair and what case, trying to be intuitive)
  3. BLL same as above as I am focusing on cross and F2L right now, will learn OLL & PLL later
What I want to ask is am I going about this in the right way, trying to optimise cross and F2L FIRST (And learning finger tricks) before getting in to OLL & PLL? or am I going about this all wrong?

If you are looking for something personalised, try Jayden McNeil. It's pricey, and I haven't tried it, but it's meant to be amazing
Brody the cuber also does lessons, and J perm does critiques if you support him on Patreon I believe. I would recommend signing up for Jayden Mcneil's newsletter. apart from helping me improve it also makes me laugh

No disrespect intended, but please do not try Jayden’s services. I think that even he would agree that for your level, you should just try online resources, and he would probably just point you to those if you submitted some of your solves. Try J perm.

Yes, buying the improvement plan or whatever is probably not a good idea. But subscribe to his newsletter, it's really good
