In which I go over the steps and algorithms for the Ortega 2x2 method, and talk about common mistakes, and some tips and techniques that will help you to improve, and ultimately to reach sub-3 averages.

If you are confused or have any questions or comments on the workings of the method, or how to improve at it, please leave a comment or video response. I am also absolutely willing to critique video of your solves.

Thanks for watching!
[The video will be up soon, be patient]

Thank God someone finally did this!!! There are way too many vids about 3x3, especially CFOP, I'm glad I finally found something to teach me things other than basics for this method. I've picked up some techniques on my own though (I'm not sure whats on the video, it hasn't finished uploading yet). Some things I've done is making it so that if I have an adjacent edge swap on bottom, I always put the solved pieces towards the front of the cube after finishing first side so that all I need to do for any LL case is AUF. I still need to find a bottom layer adjacent rear edge swap though for this to be effective...

I see you think that this is for 3x3. Just a heads up, this is for 2x2 using Ortega...
