I proudly announce my very first sub 30 move solution using YruRU:

z2 y
r U S // CPL
R' u2 r u' // FB
U' R r U M2 U2 M // EOL
(U R U2 R) // SQ
(U R U' R' U2 R U R' U) // LSLL

27 moves!! Put way too much time into finding this but I finally did it! Sub 30 YruRU!

Most people do sub 30 with 10 methods, you do sub 30 moves with 10 methods

Next Scramble: R2 B' U' D2 F' D R2 B' U L2 B2 L' F2 R' D2 R2 F2 D2 R' B2
Method: OH cfop (white cross only)
Time: 18.26s (slightly better than avg)

Solution:

z2 y' // inspection
z // fingertrick adjustment
D R' D R' F z' x' U' R' x D // x-cross
(R U R' U') (R U R' U') (R U R') // 2nd pair
U' z U' R U R' U' R' U z' // 3rd pair
y2 (U R U' R') U' y z U' R U z' // 4th pair
(U') R U2 R' U' R U' R' // OLL
(U') R' U2 R U2 R' F (R U R' U') R' F' R2 // PLL
U2 // AUF

total: 58 moves, 3.17 tps

I tried to write down the solution the best that I could, I do D with my pinky, holding the cube from the top.

38 moves using CFOP eh I'm pretty inefficient... :confused: :?

Petrus-W, 33 STM

x2
D2 r' U M' U L' // 223
F U' F' R U' R' U' L' U' L // 2P
U M' U' M // EO
U2 R U2 R2 U' R2 U' R2 U2 r // COLL
U2 M U2 // L5EP

Sidenote: This method's average movecount is higher than CFOP so Petrus-W is practically impossible to sub-30, this is literally as lucky and easy as you can get, with a 6 move 2x2x3 and 3 move L5EP. Lol just saying that sounds crazy. Sorry @WarriorCatCuber, Petrus-W is just too bad to sub-30, and I will, unfortunately, probably never be praised as a god.

Edit: Wait a second look at this:

x2
D2 r' U M' U L' // 223
M F' M' R' F R // EO
U' L' U L U' L' U' L // 2P
U R' U' R U' R' U2 R // COLL
U2 M' U2 M U' // L5EP

Oh, this is exactly the same, still 33 STM. Oops lol.

well, a country.
(11.73) L U L2 D2 L' D2 F2 D2 R' U2 B2 R B2 F U F' D' U2 R' U2 :


z2 // inspection
D F D2 U R2 L' // Cross
F U' F' f R' f' // First Pair
U R U' R' U R U R' // Second Pair
y' U' U2 R U R' U' F U' F' // Third Pair
y' U' R' U' R U2 R' U R // Fourth Pair
M' R' U' R U' R' U2 R U' M // OLL
R' U' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R' U R U // PLL + AUF

everything with the movecount was fine until PLL, the cursed F perm.


68 HTM ÷ 11.73 = 5.79 TPS (woah)
