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

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.

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.

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

68 HTM ÷ 11.73 = 5.79 TPS (woah)

I don't have time to think those days, so I just used a reconstruction and posted it for an example solve.
