Thanks Imam,

I perused those posts back when they were posted, but didn't dig into trying them.
HSC looks interesting, though, I think I'll check it out.


Thanks!

If you care about speed for a variety of events then cfop is great. It’s been proven to be very viable for attaining fast times for 3x3, OH, feet, and reduction on 4-7.

If you are a little more into intuition you can try out roux which has gotten a few good times but is a lot less developed. Only really good for 3x3 and OH (with lots of table abuse)

If you are just choosing a method to use for fun then the possibilities are pretty much endless :p lots of fun methods out there

For the past several months I've continued to test methods using combinations and different orders of simple substeps in order to find a method with simple steps, with <20 algs, and an avg move count around 55.

The below steps are similar to what I previously posted, but now the belt is made after corners are done.
This adds a few moves while doing the E-Layer, but prevents the 2 steps I disliked most: the possibility of parity and the permutation of E-Edges at the end of the solve.

EO - (5) Orient All 12 Edges
CO - (10) Orient All 8 Corners
CS - (3) Separate Corners to U and D by Matching Color
CP - (9) Permute Corners Both Layers
E-lyr - (11) Permute 4 E-Layer Edges
DL/DR - (7) Permute 2 L/R Edges on D + centers
UL/UR - (6) Permute 2 L/R Edges on U
EP(m) - (4) Permute Midges
------
55 ! (or fewer)

I'm sure a solver more advanced than me could consistently get solves of sub-50 moves with better corner solving and L8E efficiency.

My notes are here and I may continue to update this doc and then perhaps make a graphical version.

I know there aren't new breakthroughs here, but I’m satisfied with it and now just want to get faster using it.
I'm open to feedback if anyone wants to comment,


thanks,
