I also got my first sub 30 cubers.io average:

Another crazy thing, I can predict what type of PLL I'll get during APDR lol

Wow congrats man!!! I've been following your progress as I'm using Mehta for 2 weeks or so, very inspiring!

I got 2 sub-30 PBs and an ao5 of 34.67, but my Ao100 is still 41.87 and doesn't get lower even with some practice...
When you write that your main path is ADPR, does this mean that you use the algs which can be found in the "Mehta-OS Alg Sheet - V2"?
As far as I understood, a lot of them are in red meaning they are "never worth using in a solve", so could you please elaborate?

I read that people tend to use ADPR using the skills they got from CFOP, so I guess most of them don't use the mentioned algs but are doing in another way, but I can't understand how...

Cubing Forever uses "intuitive APDR" where you just use R2 and U moves to pair up the pieces in an intuitive way. It's not very efficient but a lot easier to jump into than a proper path for people who come from CFOP.

Yes this is what I understood, I guess I just never practiced so I can't get really the hang of it. A shame because it goes straight to PLL afterwards, which would give me some motivation to learn.

Here's an example

F' L' D2 L' F R2 L B2 D B D' F2 U D L2 D' L2 B2 U B2 D2
z' // Inspection
U R' U F' R' r' U2 r // FB + 1 (8/8)
u R' U R' E2 // 3QB (5/13)
F R' F2 U' F U R // EOLE (7/20)
R U2 R U R2 U' R U2 R' // 6CO (9/29)


Now from here I can see the orange/green/yellow and orange/green edges in the U layer. I can pair these up with U2 R2 U R2, kind of like how you'd make an F2L pair but with R2 moves to preserve the corner orientation. That put the orange/white/green corner in the D layer but in the wrong spot, which is actually great because I can finish with U2 R2 U' R2 to attach all three pieces and insert them. Then all that's left is an E-perm. Hopefully this explanation makes it a bit more clear what you should look for in intuitive APDR. (Keep in mind doing D R2 U' R2 U R2 D' R2 for 6CP then L5EP is better but requires learning more algs)

Thanks again!! :D
I was in the same situation a month ago. Don't give up. You'll improve.

Sorry for double post again lol

Yes I won't give up thanks Today I got a new PB : 27.87, so indeed it slowly improves.

Thank you Cuberstache for the example, much appreciated! And this confirms that it is something I'm not at all familiar with. I guess I'll have to practice that a bit, and maybe watch the future videos from Cubing Forever (wink wink) hehe!

By the way, I grabbed something from your video Cubing Forever: if there is one oriented corner on U face, check if there is one on D face so they can pair up easily with U* R2 U* (much faster than beginner 6 CO1 algs) -> this leads to one of the 2 first 6 CO2 algs which are fast and fun! I'm sure there are several tips like this which could be useful, if the method keeps growing there should be some juicy "tips videos" coming up :D

Cool!!!
Protip: Drill your algorthms. Since Mehta is a heavily algorithm-dependent method, you have to be able to execute your algorithms fast. In order to do that, you need to have the algorithms in muscle memory. To do that, you need to practice the algorithms over and over again. Having the algorithms in muscle memory will help you to execute the algorithms fast without a second thought.

Hope this helps @guelda!! :D

E: I might be making (low quality)tips videos in the future so watch out for that.

A few days later, I finally came around to reconstructing the 18.76 solve:

Generated By csTimer+ on 2021-03-15
single: 18.768

Time List:
1. 18.768 D2 B2 R' B2 R F2 U2 R2 F2 R U2 D' F' D2 U' L' B R' U2 L @2021-03-12 17:28:30

U S' U' f U' F' D' //FB
u' R u' R E U R' //3QB
u F' U F R' F R2 F' R' //EOLE
U' R2 U2 R' U' R' U2 R U' R' //TDR
U' F R' F' r U R U' r' //OLL
U2 R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U2 //PLL


Crazy thing is, I planned FB+2 in inspection. This could have easily been sub 15 if not for me doing chill turning
