If you regrip after the R2 and do the rest regripless, it should flow properly, with a thumb shift thing around the R' F point (if you start from neutral). The other alg is only really good for the ZBLL. Another potential alg is R U R D R' U' R D' R' U2 R' U' R U' R'. Regripless and fast.

I use
R’ U R U2 L’ R’ U R U’ L
I’ll work on it. Maybe try those algs as well.

A couple of things: are you building the block in the back, and are you making sure you can sub 2 all of your LL algorithms. Being able to do that will 'supercharge' your fingertricks. Otherwise, keep it up!

Thumb on FR and ring finger on BR. R with my wrist, U with right index, R' with wrist, U with right middle, R with my wrist, lefty double flick U2, R' with my wrist.
For F perm, same grip, R' with my wrist, U' with left index, F' with right thumb, then T perm and cancel into F U R should flow nicely.

Thanks! The Sune one doesn’t work out for me though... Do you think this would work?
Thumb on F sticker of FRU, wrist R turn, left index finger U push with thumb guiding it, wrist R’ turn, middle finger U, wrist R, left hand double flick U2, wrist R’

My first recorded PB, lol. Got a 23.46 Ao5, pretty good considering they were all FullStep. Also, tip taken from this - you wanna get a PB, act like you’re gonna get one and go hyper in your solves (within reason). :)

Thought I should post my practise regime and what I’m going to be doing for people to see. I edited it into the main post. Should keep me busy for quite a while, then hopefully by the repeat I’ll be around sub 20 to sub 17. :)

Quick question p, just to satisfy my curiosity: is learning EJF2L worth it? Because then during the first 2/3 of the solve, I can go “that block is perfect except for that corners there, oh wait I can orient it during OLL later!

Yes, EJLS is worth learning but I dunno if it's better just to build straight blocks then do it in LS or whatever when you get a corner in slot F2L case. In short, learn the algs but don't use them as EJ used them.

I'm really impressed by your dedication to this, I feel like most people (including myself tbh) would kind of abandon this sort of project after just a week or two. Great job, and keep it up!

Why not though? I guess using it during F2L would waste the time you could have saved during LS?

I'm thinking with ZBLL ultimately. If you do a 2x2x3 with a twisted corner, then you solve F2L, you have to rotate back to your twisted corner, do EJLS, PLL. On the other hand, you could do a normal 2x2x3, end up having a twisted corner in F2L for your last pair, do EJLS rotationless then do PLL, spending very little time on EJLS then having a good ZBLL. On the other other hand, you could do a normal 2x2x3 and have a non corner twisted in slot edge solved case and go straight on to ZBLL after, so I think that, when the second option comes up, EJLS is worth it, but in the first or third options, it isn't, and it's very easy to avoid the first one.

Starting week 7, more practising on 2x2x3, yay. I should probably edit the mains post and include spoilers soon, but I tried yesterday, and I failed miserably. Also, I’m spending too much time on the forums :(. I gotta actually cube and not spend time posting on here. I’ll be off practising soon.

Week 8, same target as last week. I think I’ve got how to do my expansion now :). Just need practise.
As for U COLLs, I’m just being lazy with algs... Might learn some tomorrow.
