# The 3x3x3 Example Solve Thread

just corners?
I was aiming for solving only corners, but in fact I solved much more
EDIT: oh you mean the scramble - see below

Of course you had to FMC that porkynator
tbh that was pretty nice solve gj

All edges solved, alright here we go-
Whoops, I forgot I had "corners only" selected in qqtimer!
I try to write efficient solutions here, but I limit the use of FMC-specific techniques such as NISS and insertions - efficient linear solves are nice

Next: L U B2 D B2 F2 U R2 D U F2 U2 F' U R' B' U2 L2 R U'
Some edge magic:

F2 R2 B2 D B2 R2 F2 U

Next scramble (a normal one this time!): D2 R' B2 R' F2 U2 F2 L F2 R' F2 U' B' F D' R2 U F L2 R' B'
