Best H Perm alg? For solved on D and H perm on U and vice versa? Currently I use 2 CP algs and I don't like the M2 one.
Try these (CPx2 alittle tweaked)
top: /3,-3/3,-3/0,1/-3,3/-3,3/-1,0
bottom: /3,-3/3,-3/-1,0/-3,3/-3,3/0,1
both: /3,-3/3,-3/-1,1/-3,3/-3,3/-1,1

edit: H with flip: 0,-1/1,1/2,-1/-5,1/5,-1/3,0/1,1/-1,0

For those with a Stickerless QiYi:
1. Did you go through the stripping core problem?
2. Do the edges jutting out annoy you?
3. Have you done any mod to prevent these problems? If yes, what are the results?

1. No.
2. Don't have that problem.
3. Just do the Low mod + glue all edge parts together + locknut if your core gets stripped.

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. Yes ("Low Mod" - gluing the inner column pieces to the core, worked perfectly)

Are changing the springs required or just gluing is enough? I could barely persuade my parents to buy a square-1. I can't get anything else :p

I just glued, and I'm happy enough with how it feels after tensioning, breaking in and lubing, but feel is all about personal preference so hopefully that works ok for you as well.

Has anyone had the problem where the ledge that holds the spring (not screw) up, shaves off? The spring can then fall into the larger opening along with the washer and it makes the cube a mess?

Also, has the locknut fix not worked for some people? Mine works for about 4 solves and then it flies off and the cube crumbles. It's actually worse this way than just using my stripped original piece. I've ended up supergluing the locknut to the screw, but I doubt that it will hold for very long.

Not quite sure what I'm doing wrong here, but I'm really fed up with these SQ-1's right now.

I haven't experienced the same problem as you, but I have a spare QiYi Square-1 that you can borrow for Alpharetta.
