How are CFOP algs named? Are the alg movements supposed to look like the letters? For example, why are the Ua and Ub algs in PLL named that way? Thank you.

They are supposed to be named based on how the diagram looks, but some of them don’t really make sense. You might enjoy these JPerm videos where he renames all of the PLLs.

How should I fingertrick the RUuf Gc perm?
Also, what “sticker” should I use to determine the AUF?
I just memorized each possible AUF case and the corresponding AUF. If you want, you can just visualize the UF edge being moved with a single U'. Doesn't really matter how you predict AUF.

Does anyone know the average move count for:
  • Mehta PLL + 1
  • TTLL (best set of algs as it exists today)
Thanks.

What is a realistic time to aim for completing the 2 blocks for a Roux Beginner after 3 months? and what does it need to be in order to be able to get solves under 60 seconds consistently (my ultimate goal)?

It's been 3 months since I started Beginner Roux. I do about 40 to 50 solves on most days. My average time just for block building is 58 seconds (Cubeast), although I get an occasional ~35 second time with a bit of luck. Something seems wrong.

I can’t really answer for the questions, since I don’t use Roux, but perhaps utilising example solves and seeing how they build blocks efficiently will help long-term. The thread on how to practice, and the Roux guides are all generally helpful
