My first success was in 2008. It took a long time for me to build the confidence necessary to attempt it with the blindfold on! I actually did a 2x2 blind first to check that I knew the corner algorithms I were using at the time.

It's interesting to look at people's first successes. My first success, as I said, took around 20 minutes, and now I am at around 1 minute and 50 seconds to about 2 minutes.

My first success was in December 2011

I just heard from my friend that it could be done and then I googled it.

I did use some tutorial to understand how memoing and cycles work, but the solving method I came up with myself. It was a horrible horrible method :D

I used beginner method to orient edges first (R E R E..... + setup moves) and beginner to orient corners (R F' R' F.... + setup moves) :D
After that I just used A-perms and U-perms + setup moves to permute pieces...

After that I, understandably, thought BLD solving was amazingly hard and stopped practising for a while. Then I found this forum and Pochmanns tutorials and got more and more interested in BLD and noticed that it isn't that hard with the right method.

And now I have 3 BLD NRs. 2 more to go :D have to watch out for Olli tough...

Do you feel like explaining how the method works or are you happy that everyone here thinks that you are a fraud?

Also, about 4 years ago. I used OP which can be explained and replicated.
Fraud, magic or official, I'm the first one and I revived the cube when he was dead. It was easy for me to buy the domain name rubikscuberecord.com because the cube was dead when I got on the web.

I placed a picture of a national championship in 1982 in Toronto exactly the same place as the first championship after 21 years in 2003. This is already good evidence of my merit .... the return of the cube and the championship. The young have the intelligence but not lived there a good reason to have an open mind.

Since is wasn't official and magic isn't real you just told us it was fraud.
If you are so delusional that you think you single handedly revived the Rubik's cube then you must feel ashamed that it was fraud instead of hard work.
