I call it like that, because it's a mixture of the roux method and the cfop method. Basically you make the first two blocks, like in roux, for example, the blue and green blocks. Then you make all the edges white or yellow for this example, like in roux, then putting the white red and orange white edge on their right positions. That will make f2l. Then you will basically always have a yellow cross, so oll cross skip thing. You do a 2 look oll alg, (itll be like 1 look oll, as cross is already done), then pll. Is it a good method? I'm kinda new so I need your help

Do an example solve, or two. That'll show many of the problems that could come with the method, and help other understand it better. Nice idea!

Ok! I'll try! Thanks!

Btw, are there any digitl cube things , like to make a digital example solve so it's faster?

Try alg.cubing.net
But you have to enter the moves manually.

That is bad. Lots of new people come up with it. Don’t do that.

The first question here: Wouldn't it be faster to just do normal cross and F2L? It feels like it is slower doing two 1x2x3 blocks than normal F2L. But really nice that you have these ideas, keep it going!
Edit: Also, try to do a solve with your method and then the CFOP method and you'll see what is the fastest for you.

Ok! Thanks! Do you have any tips on how I could achieve a consistent sub 20 w/ roux? My pb is 16 secs but that was very lucky, I sometimes do 18 scs, and I average 20-23 secs.

Just do lots of untimed solves to focus on finding efficient solutions, and watch example solves to learn new ways to solving blocks.

I came up with something similar back in january
was it for the method competition? (just curious)
