# Optimal Superflip Algorithm

Whilst looking on the wiki section i came across the superflip page. It says the the optimal solution to the pattern is 24 quarter turn move, but the algorithm i put on there is only 12 quarter turns.
How did an algorithm that is half as long as the original one not get noticed?

Slice turns, lol.

A 12 move algorithm would be [(M' U)x4(X Y')]x3 or, without cube rotations, (M' U)x4 (E F')x4 (M' B)x4
lolwut =/

sorry i epicly failed at counting the moves
i remember M' U as one move

thats embarrassing

Your alg isn't even 24 though 'cos you're using slice moves it's 36 HTM...

Quick question, using the <U, R, D, L, F2, B2> EO, what would be the shortest/fastest QTM, HTM, or STM algorithm to dis/orient all edges?

I think:

F(') B(') U(') L' R B2 D2 F(')

Ok so then (y' x') M' d' M' U2 F2 D (x') could be the fastest STM one?

B' R' F' U L D B' (7q*, 7f*, 7s)
S' U' M U2 B2 D' (10q, 8f, 6s*)
