Ive been cubing for a couple months, and i cant break the sub 30 mark. I solve cross in 3 ish seconds, and what i do for f2l is i put the pair in, but not correctly, and do one of 5 algorithims to solve. im looking to learn full f2l, but its hard, but i think i can, as ive developed a method to learn algorithims. i use 2-look oll and am planning to learn pll, but i do 2 look rn. (cube: moyu rs3m, pr: 32 seconds)

Never heard of this method. You put wrong F2L Pairs together and then repair it?
Just do the correct F2L Pairing and I guess you will easily hit the 30s 😜

F2L is not that hard to learn. You don't have to learn all the F2L cases
Intuitive F2L is basically just 3 cases.
  • Same color up -> Hide Corner along the white side and put edge next to it
  • Different color up -> Place Edge across the corner along the white side of the corner
  • White up -> Put edge on top of same middle piece, turn face away from other color and place corner on top
The rest ist just bringing the pieces into the upper layer.

It's hard to describe, so better watch a video.
I can't recommend you a video because i've learned it in german but I guess JPerm has, like always, one that is easy to understand.
Feliks "cubeskills" has also some good tutorials


It's easy to understand concepts but it takes a bit of practice to get into it.

kind of, but i put the pair in like this
I still think that's a stupid idea, but it has one advantage. I guess you are quite good at these five F2L cases now.

Prabably I use this method to train these specific F2L cases.
In the moment I do 90% intuitive F2L but I planned to memorize some special cases like these to reduce thinking in F2L

But In your case, if you already found the two pieces it's not much work to put them together correctly

Don't do this. This is a very bad way to do f2l and limits your way to piece together pieces. If you just learn to solve pieces with slow solves, you will be able to solve much faster. I am sub-12 and I know what I am talking about.

thank you
