Scramble: D' R2 U' L2 U B2 R2 B2 F2 D2 B2 L' D R' D' R B' D2 U2 R' D'

Conjugate, insertion, interchange

Corners
VN: y R U' L2 U R' U' L2 U y'
WH: R2 L' D' L U2 L' D L U2 R2
Last corner is solved on its own using OP to solve parity

Edges
DB: U M' U2 M U (UB piece is placed on UL)
IA: D M' U R2 U' M U R2 U' D' (UL piece is placed on UB)
VR: D R E2 R' D' R E2 R'
NP: R' U M' U' R2 U M U' R' Undo exchange (R2) + undo setup (R) in the end become R'
FS: x F L F' M F L' F' M' x'
GT: x R L' U L E' L' U' L E R' x'

Last Corner
F' D R U' R' U' R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R D' F (Solves last corner, swaps UB and UL)

Wouldn't it make sense to move this to the example solves forum? Also, bump :)

It would actually! Plus you can write commutator notation like this, rather than label everything. :)

[z': [R' D R, U']]
[x': [U', R' D R]]
[D', R' U2 R]
[z: [R' D' R D R' D' R, U']
[z': [U R U', M]]
[x' U: [U M U', L2]]
[y' U': [U' M U, R2]]
[M' U M, D]
R u' M' u2 M' u' R' // those rotations, geez.

Was hoping for something more interesting. I don't actually use the last alg (cyclic shift of 2 sunes) but I should. I probably wouldn't spot the cancellation in 4th/5th edge cycles.

Awesome corners solution, here are some possible cycles for the edge case that I use: r' u' M u2 M u' r, M U M2 U2 M' U2 M' U' M', or just L' B' set up to 4-mover is decent.

Thank you :D

Oops, ninja'd on the scramble. Btw, I would execute this as U' (F R' F' r) (R' F R F' R) (r' U), flows decently for me.
I guess that's the initial BLDers' hype now that the thread has been bumped ;) At least the next person gets to choose a scramble. And thanks for the alg!

method: 3-cycles TurBO variation "Solid Diagonal"
solving orientation: scramble orientation: white up green front std colors
letter system: anticlockwise major: UFRBLD order "A" thru "W" and "Y"

generator: B2 D2 L2 D2 F2 D2 R2 U F D' R F' U' R' B2 D B R' (18f*)
edge_#_corner cycles per my solving orientation and letter system: (ATJON_BYEGPq'r_Sv_#_AOLISq-u_Gj-y_Kn-w)

split into pairs off A_ edge buffer and memorize: TJ ON BY EG PQ(flip) S(flip)
similarly off _A corner buffer: OL IS(backtwist) G(backtwist) K(backtwist)
I prefer to solve the corners first.

to solve _OL corner, apply _OL 6 BO 2 YO:
code 6 move _OL to _BO (I think "setup _O"): x z
// twist the whole cube along the axis of 3-fold symmetry along ULB-DRF
// whole-cube turning ULB to BUL and DRF to RFD. Then _O becomes _B and _L
// becomes _O, BDL becomes ULF and RBU becomes BDL in two steps: _O moves
// with the whole cube to _T (BDL to LUF) and twists once anticlockwise with
// the buffer to _B (LUF to UFL); _L moves with the whole cube to _V (RBU to
// DLB) and twists once anticlockwise with the buffer to _O (DLB to BLD)
double-type move _BO to _YO (I think "setup _Y"): F2
solve _YO with the alg for _OY: x' U R' U' L' U R U' L x
return _YO to _BO (I think "restore _O"): F2
return _BO to _OL (I think "restore _L"): x' y
// whole-cube untwist along the same 3-fold axis applying a single spin-type move.

optimal generator of the result after this step:

(ATJON_BYEGP'r_S'v_#_AIS-u_G-y_K-w)
to solve _IS corner, apply _IS _IO _JO
move _IS to _IO (I think "setup _O"): D'
move _IO to _JO (I think "setup _J"): R'
solve _JO with the alg for _OJ: L B' R2 B L' B' R2 B
return _JO to _IO (I think "restore _I"): R
