I converted the text descriptions of these 8 steps into graphical PDFs at this URL:

http://tinyurl.com/solvexio
Look for the files named: "

**EoCol8**"

There is a concise 1-page version with algs and examples

and a 2-page version with more details about: Edge Orientation, Corner Separation and E-Layer Permutation

The method on these sheets keeps the alg-count low, so some steps are longer than optimal.

But I'm still consistently getting a 55 move average using the steps shown in the doc.

Again, I think that someone using more algorithms and/or more advanced techniques, could have optimized solves averaging moves in the mid-40s if...

...for example...

All 8 corners can be oriented and permuted using 17-18 moves (instead of 22)

The 4 E-layer edges can be permuted using 8-9 moves (instead of 11)

Last 8 Edges (and centers) can be permuted using 14-15 moves (instead of 18)

or if any steps can be combined

EO + Orient 2 DL corners... then Sortega

or permute L6E at the same time

etc.

Let me know if the doc's diagrams and descriptions make sense or if I could explain any parts of it in a better way.

thanks!

@WoowyBaby for triggering in me the inspiration to work on a method with steps like these)
