Why does that link lead to a familiar post...
That's a crazy solve! I followed along with my cube, and my reactions were the same as your comments
I came here to say this. I'd usually build a 2x2x2 and just keep building, maybe even leave cross edges until after the pairs are in!Gonna pitch in and say that every cuber, at any level, should play around with whatever sounds cool to them. Try building a 2x2x2 block (like in the Petrus method), then add the other two cross pieces and finish f2l. It's fun! Eventually you'll be able to incorporate it into your speedsolving. If you want to improve quickly, turn your practise into play, and don't be afraid to ask questions and try new things, even if you still have much to learn with what you already do.
Mm, I'm not a fan of this. Why have your eyes looking at information that isn't new! I can imagine an approach with first two edges where execution would be better but after that you don't need that information any more(probably because I build cross and stuff on F...)
I also see it like that. I make a petrus block and add 2 edges. Viola...X-Cross made. For double x cross, I do it like roux. Create first block, then add 3 edges.More than most people. I'm color neutral, so basically whenever there's a pair already formed of any color I make an xcross (but I think of it more as a 2x2x2 block +2 cross edges.)
