what are you averaging now?
I think im going to switch to petrus
from roux.
is it simular to cfop?
Please just edit your post.

As for your questions, he posted his average in the last post(19), and it's kind of similar to CFOP. You make a 2x2x2, which is like 2 cross pieces and a pair. Then make it into a 2x2x3, which is like half of F2L. Then you do EO, which makes it so you will have a yellow cross on top if you finish with R and U moves. Then finish the last of F2L while only using R and U moves. Then do the last layer however you like, except the yellow cross will already be made.

There aren't many tutorials, but Lars Petrus' text one(the inventor) is your best bet: https://lar5.com/cube/

Edit(see what I did?): Ignore Lars' last layer technique, start with OCLL/PLL. Also, if you have trouble learning Petrus then just ask anyone who knows it(PapaSmurf, Metallic Silver, PetrusQueber, Tao Yu, me, etc.)

I guess you got what you need lol. After you get advanced, I recommend Erik Johnson’s advanced Petrus v2 tutorials for 2x2x2 and 2x2x3. He has a little insight on 4 bad edges and EJF2L too. By the way, start off with one technique to blockbuild at first, then expand your knowledge. I literally did quarter cross, corner insert, then edge insert for a while, until I delved further into techniques, lol. Ask us if you have any questions!

:).Sub 17 ao5 PB - by 0.003 seconds lol.

Also came close to PB single, messed up slightly on COLL recognition though. The 21 was a messed up expansion.

Alrighty, so, I have decided to do something for fun lol. If this post reaches 20 reactions, I shall rename this thread ‘The Wuest for Sub 8 Petrus’ for a month :)
IDK why lol, but you know...

It’s too funny. People just use roll eyes for everything.

Using your phone as a timer without charging it when it’s as 19%, know that’s commitment.

I change my signature to ’The Wuest’ and list my location, facebook, etc as ‘The Wuest’ for a month.

(I feel like I’m gonna regret this soon lol)
12/20 for reactions so far, 6/20 for roll eyes.

Also I woke up to like 32 notification today, roughly half which were in this thread...

Almost sub 15, I don't even know full cmll yet

So, this week, I’m going back to the blockbuilding base, I can do 8 moves or under for 2x2x2, and I can generally one look it, but I really need that Petrus efficiency in the long run, so I’m going to do tons of slow 2x2x2 blockbuilding, and also work on finding the best corner to expand on in inspection as fast as I can, while still being able to 1L.

Oh yeah, and I’m learning a further set of 12 algorithms, for ZBLL.
8+ for 2x2x2 isnt bad if it influences 2x2x3 well

I’m doomed... I don’t practise enough or hard enough...
—————————————————————————
Gotta learn to do that lol.

Plus @Etotheipi it might not even get to 20 - I doubt 20 active members check this thread and are willing to spend a couple of precious seconds clicking on react buttons lol.

Lol I just lowered it by 0.1 seconds (using 4 of the 5 solves there) by getting a slightly faster time than the last one.

Mmf, lowered PB ao5 again.

Counting 15, along with a 16 and 17... And I say I’m sub 20 with Petrus... It feels so inconsistent sometimes. Or maybe I’ve just become sub 18 without knowing it lol.

Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Do it guys. Or I will die. And be sad forever.
I mean, there is no set time limit for this, so...

Did another example solve - went really well!
y x//inspection 0,0
R2 U’ F R’ u2 B//2x2x2 6,6
U2 F2 U R2 U’ R//2x2x3 6,12
F R L F’ L’//EO 5,17
y’ R U R2 U2 R U R U R’ U’ R//F2L 11,28
y2 R’ U R’ U’ D’ R U’ R’ U2 R U’ R’ D R U’ R//ZBLL 15,43
Well that went pretty well. Very nice and straightforward solution - 43 HTM...
Anybody want to critique?

Yeah, I was just kinda going for the FMC - cancelling moves, using rotations, etc. (Though I would still have to AUF :fp)

Week 21 - Expanding inspection capabilities - my ultimate goal is to one look the 2x2x3, but that’s some time away. Also finishing SO T ZBLLs.

12.314 single PB at school today o_O. The sad thing is it was a a LEOR solve, since there was a full Roux FB. So I can’t call it Petrus really... EDIT:
I guess it kind of was, since I’ve decided that LEOR is an extension to Petrus.
