Hi Community!
I'm learning the PPL's for the 3x3x3 and it seems that theres a Case which i cant Solve with 1 Algorythm.
I must move 4 edges and Swap 2 Corners. On any Speedcube Sites i found nothing about this case.

123
456 [this is the top layer]
789

Switch 7 and 9
And 2 to 6, 6 to 8, 8 to 4 and 4 to 2

I hope you can Help me!
Greetings Leo

Look at colour patterns to recognise the case, rather than using which pieces need to swap with what. The case you have is an A perm (U x R2 D2 R U R' D2 R U' R).

It's a two-swap of corners and a four-cycle of edges. The reason it's so unfamiliar is that usually it's looked at from a different AUF. If you move the U layer in this case, it's just an A perm.

I just got my gan 356x, and it's amazing compared to my cubes from 2016!
Anyway since it's stickerless, I noticed that I can actually see the colors in the back when lighting is good and I tilt the cube slightly forward. Never used that to my advantage, but isn't that a concern with WCA rules?

It used to be an issue, but in July 2015 the WCA realized that it can't be easily used to one's advantage, so the regs now allow stickerless cubes. Its all good
