I got a 9.15! My first sub 10 but the F2L is a mystery…
Scramble: U' F2 D' B2 F2 L2 R2 U2 R2 U' R D2 B' L' B U' L2 U2 B2
z2 ? // Cross
? // F2L
r U R’ U R U2 r’ // OLL
// PLL skip

If anyone can find an F2L solution that gives that last layer, please let me know! The cross was relatively similar to z2 L2 R2 F2 D L’ D2 but I can’t be sure because there are so many solutions that use the same idea… I also know that the F2L was either rotationless or had 1 rotation in it (but I’m pretty sure it was rotationless.

It looks like the cross and first 2 pairs should be something like this:

z2 L D' L F2 R2 D' - Cross

U2 y' R U' R2' U' R Dw U R U' R' - 2 F2L pairs

does this look about right

It still doesn’t continue to give the correct last layer (although it is a good solution)…
I will keep trying to find more info about the solve
