Thanks. I'll give it a try.

Also: do you rate the Y=perm from that site?

R2 U' R' U R U' [x'] U' [z'] U' R U' R' U' [z] U R

Or do you have a better one?
F R U' R' U' R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R F'
This is made of two OLLs, F R U' R' U' R U R' F' and R U R' U' R' F R F'. The T perm I posted above is the same algs, but in the other order.

How do you speed up your pll when you already full plc memorized ?
Find better algs. algdb.net is the best website to look for algs.
Practise. Repeat your algs again and again, timing them if necessary, and try to get them faster. Maybe look for fingertrick videos, as executing an alg differently can make it faster.

Anyone know of a scrambler that can do cross scrambles? Meaning, starting from a solved cross, generate a short scramble to get to a random cross state. I'm looking to do repeated cross solves, and would rather not have to do a full 20-move scramble each time.

cstimer can do this. Select 3x3, easy cross, set length to 0.

That wasn't what he was asking. He was asking for a cube that does random state scrambles for the cross (like if a cube didn't have any stickers except on your cross pieces and centres, and you wanted random state scrambles).

(also, csTimer has a 'solved cross' option :p)

Yeah, what TDM said (but looking for a scrambler, not a cube :). I just want to do scramble, solve cross, scramble, solve cross, repeat, and I'd rather have short quick random-state cross scrambles than long full-cube 20-move scrambles. The easy cross feature on csTimer is awesome as well, and I do use that for other types of cross practice, but that's not what I'm talking about here.

How to get better at the cross?
Practise. Try solving the cross blindfolded; take as much time as you need to plan a solution, then do it without looking. This means you have to be efficient with your cross, because if you're not it wlill be harder to track your pieces. The more you practise, the more efficient you'll become. Also, if you can plan the cross in inspection easily, then you can start to look for your first F2L pair as you're doing the cross without having to concentrate on it; eliminating pauses can save a lot of time.

When I try to look ahead for F2L, I solve a pair then, while solving that pair, I look for my next one, occasionally glancing back at the one I'm solving to make sure I don't mess it up. Should I have more confidence in inserting F2L pairs so I don't have to look back at them or is this acceptable for F2L?

57 OLL images Black & White?

Dumb question, where can I find all 57 OLLs in Black & White rather instead of color, or is there a way to change a list to black & white? Jessica's site has some but I can't find the complete set.

is there a database somewhere with algs for inserting the last pair while solving OLL simultaneously?
