Hi, I've been cubing for a week and am capable at the beginner method. However I always get stuck on the LSE part of Roux.

I manage to solve the L and R sides but I often find myself in a situation where the DF and UB faces (or equivalent faces in directly opposite positions) in the right places but wrong orientation. Am I going wrong somewhere or is there an alg to solve this?

I'm fairly confident that I doing the steps on youtube tutorials etc. Keep find myself in this situation though.

Is there a certain alg set that works for the LL where there is a solved 1x2x2 block on top and all edges are oriented? Essentially you would have 3 corners and 2 edges left to solve, and half(?) the time you would just have a l3c case.

Beginner Heise step 3 (EP*5 and then CP*2)
so i'm doing step 3 as 2 parts right now with EP*5 and then CP*2 and then step 4 commutator.
at L5C i have a 3-cycle and 2 pure CO. what do i do? do i just try to avoid this?

Yes, although make sure the centres are either solved, or an M2 from being solved. It won't work if you have them an M/M' from being solved (unless you use misoriented centres, but that's a more advanced thing)
