Yes, there is a shorter way toward the solved state:

(z x2) R D2 L' B R U R L F' D2 B' D L F' // (14) Corners
M S U S // (4/18) Orient All
D2 R2 F2 R2 U R2 f2 R2 // (8/26) Solved

NEXT : D B D' R2 U' B2 L' F2 L' D L2 D B2 U2 R2 B2 R2 B2


R2 B F U' F R' D2 R' F // All Corners + Two Edges (9/9)
F2 M D M' S2 D' f2 // Orient All Edges, Domino (6/15)
R E2 L2 B E2 B' // Solve a Bunch and Reduce to 4e (6/21)
U2 M' U2 M' // Permute Final Edges, Finished (4/25)

Next: F' U2 F2 R2 F' D2 R2 F2 L2 B R2 F2 R' B2 L' D2 B F U B F

Wow.
Perhaps I should try out this Pillars, Walls, Cube method.
Hmmm.

Here we go:

(z)
D' L2 S' D2 R' B2 D' L F M U L U' l' // Pillars, and wait what also Walls too (14)
Everything but 4e is solved in 14 :eek:
M' D M' U S' U2 S U M2 u' // Cube (10/24)

Next: U F' L D B' D2 R B' U R2 D2 B L2 B' R2 B' D2 R2 B D2 R2

Solution with Waterman Method:
x2 B' U' F' r' U r R2 U R' U R D' F M F' M' // first face - 1 edge (16 STM)
U' L' B L B' U2 B' U2 B // Waterman CLL
z M2 U M' U' // first redge
R U R2 M U' M2 U R2 M' U' // two more redges
r U' M' U // Last ledge
M2 U' M' U2 M' U' // last redge + orient midges
U2 M' U2 M2 L2 // permute Midges

My solution!

it's 54 STM because I did not do the first layer good... any tips there?

NEXT:
U2 L D' F' R' L2 F2 U' F B2 R' U2 F2 U2 L' U2 D2
1rst layer : Try finding easy pairs at first. Here was my solution : x2 u B' R U' R U R2' U' F2 U' F (11 STM)
CLL : May try doing the alg from a different angle to avoid B moves. You could of done : U2 F' L F L' U2 L' U2 L. Same moves, better fingertricks.
First redge : I would have done z R2 U M2 U', but your's was the same amout of moves, so your's was just as good.
Second and third redge : Umm what was that? Did you learn an alg? I would have done r2 U M2 U' r' U M U' R2 U' M2 U, which is intuitive and solves the ledge at the same time, but ok.
Last ledge : Generally, you want to solve this at the same time as the third redge, but what you did was good, since all 3 redges were solves.
Last redge + midge orientation : Good, I don't know these algs, so this was well done. The only thing I can find is that you could have done U as the last move to save a move during midge permutation.
Midge permutation : Good, I generally prefer doing r2 over L2, but it's your choice.

Overall, great work! I'm glad to see you're improving!
Too see an example solve, look below!
