My progression thread, I guess. (Road to Sub-10 CFOP) | Slowed down a bit, but I'm working on getting back to my usual average.

Can I reach sub-15 by Summer 2022?

Nice! So I was drilling PLL and saw that most of the time, I was Sub-4 on all PLL cases. Does that mean I have to reduce OLL time to 3 seconds to get to sub-20?
I’d recommend using this tool from CubeSkills to figure out what part of your solves you need to work on. Do an average of 50 while using the splits function on csTimer, then input those times into the spreadsheet. The sheet will then tell you what you need to work on the most!

I'd say get your PLLs down to sub 2.5 and OLLs sub 2. That and a sub 15 Cross +F2L should get you down to sub 20. Also use that tool that @BenChristman1 linked.
(Also finishing full OLL would help a lot)

you probably should get a bit lower than that for sub 20 (but you're close). Personally i average 13 and can execute all plls except n perms sub-2. I can also get sub 0.9 Ub perms and sub 1 h perms (inconsistent I know)

Alright, alright I've definitely slowed down a bit since I was last active on the forums. I guess I feel like my cube is kinda slow, but I'm not turning that fast either. It's just F2L that slows me down, and maybe PLL. So I have decided to give 30 minutes after my classes to 3x3. I'm also going to try to make new ideos every week, and I really haven't gotten to making a thank you video for 100 subs. So I'll do that in a video. When my QiYi timer arrives, I'll be using that instead of the keyboard because I think that would help me in practicing for comps. And funny story, in my Social Science exam, they actually gave the answer sheet instead of the actual question paper lol. They had to redo the entire paper. So yeah. I'm really excited for my b-day and the timer. I'll work on improving 3x3, because that would help me even more on 4x4. I will learn the basic F2L algs from cubeskills. And I definitely will cube every day from now on.

I was practicing today, and my cube just felt great. I was able to turn at my top speed, F2L got a bit easier, and I got down to a Sub-23 average again. So around 22 seconds per solve. I'm okay with the lefty A perms because of.. ahem... r moves (not R). And do I need an audio adapter for the QiYi timer for Chromebook? I have the cable from my headphones. And does anyone know a good camera angle? I need it for a vid I'm making.

Thanks!

Assuming that you’re in the US, and can order from Amazon, you should buy the 2 things that I’ll link below. One of them is an audio/microphone splitter. You’ll want to plug the male end into your audio/mic port on your Chromebook. The second link is for a 3.5 mm to 2.5 mm cable. The 2.5 mm end should go into your timer (make sure that the timer is 2.5 mm; that’s what most of them are, but I’m not sure about the Qiyi), and the 3.5 mm end should go into the microphone port on the splitter. Hopefully this works for you!
