What is your best time/average using the Beginner's Method? You know, like that sh*tty method they teach you in "7 steps" in that packet that comes with a Rubik's Cube. My best time was 0.32.24. That solve was EXTREMELY lucky though. My Ao5 with Beginner's is 1.09.96. What's yours?


tl;dr
The "beginner's method" is the one in the packet that comes with a Rubik's Cube. What is your best time/average with that method?


P.S.
Does anybody know the correct name of the "beginner's method", as I called it?

Layer By Layer. There's 2 ways I know of doing this, with 4-Look LL, and with the 4 algorithm LL. I did 1 solve with each.

41.27 with the 4 algorithm LL.

28.03 with 4-Look LL.

I remember someone talking about sub-20 with LBL, I think they used 4-Look LL.

whats your fastest solve using beginners method?

mine currently is 48 seconds using this method. Probably a dumb question but just wanted to see how bad this method is.

So you mean the Dan Brown method?
*tries solve right now*
i got a 45.24 and a 39.54
the 39.54 solve is just a bit above average for me,
mostly because i solve LL with beginners.

PS: i know it's now officially called the 'Dan Brown Method' but i mean the one shown in his video.
Plus in korea, beginner's method is different.

single: :23 second (complete LL skip with accidental x-cross)
average: 1:00

can't do a more recent average because i can't remember the algorithms
