Hey guys this is going to be a thread for my 8 part(probably) Roux method tutorial. I have tried to explain each of the steps in the method as simple as I could. Hope some of you cubers out there give Roux a try and possibly switch if you like it. Hope you people find this interesting! :3
I will be updating this thread every time I post a new video.

For the people who already know Roux, hope it is not n00by! :p

Remember that you can always make a pair on D layer, you don't have to do this on U all the time. Example: case when BL edge is solved and DLB corner is on ULB (you got this case twice in your FB tutorial): you can do B' R U2 M2 B'. One move less :p Same for first pair in your second example, you could have done U2 M2 F.
That's a shame that you showed only this cfoppy way (Edge + Pair + Pair) but all in all it isn't bad I think :)

Maybe you can make a tutorail on the Non-CFOP way? :)

I don't feel like doing a video tutorial.
You know, you always need an edge inserted but not always LD edge. E.g:
SCRAMBLE: L2 U2 L' B2 D2 R' D2 U2 L U2 F2 D B2 F U2 F L2 R2 D' R' F
y z2 x' F U' B D'
I inserted BL edge first, because I had DBL-DL pair already made.
Sometimes, when you don't have edge inserted or pair made it's better do make pair of white pieces and inserting E-slice edge instead of doing it like F2L.

Also, there is one more way to do FB: doing 1x1x3 block on E, 1x1x3 on D and connecting them. E.g:
SCRAMBLE: B2 D F2 U' B U L U' F L D F2 U L2 D R2 U' R2 F2 R2 U
x' z2 U B' U2 L' D2

But, of course, sometimes it's just better to do it in Arvind's way.

U' B2 U2 B2. One move less.
