This is Kirjava-Meep method (also known as the Secret method) by Thom Barlow and Kristopher De Asis.

  1. Solve the first face from Scrambled skewb state.
  2. Solve the corners from First face skewb state.
  3. Solve the centers from Corners + 1 Center skewb state.

Ranzha's Method

This is the Ranzha's Skewb Method by Brandon Harnish.

Original Method

  1. Create a Petrus Block from Scrambled skewb state.
  2. Create the Welder's Mask from Petrus Block skewb state.
  3. Solve the remaining centres (L4C) from Welder's Mask skewb state.
  4. Orient the corners (CLL) from 1st layer + centers skewb state.

Beginner's variation

  1. Match one center with one corner from Scrambled skewb state.
  2. Match one more corner from 1 center + 1 adjacent corner skewb state. (Or match one more center from 1 center + 1 adjacent corner skewb state.)
  3. Match one more center from 1 center + 2 adjacent corners skewb state. (Or position one more corner from 2 adjacent centers + 1 adjacent corner skewb state and then orient it from 2 adjacent centers + 1 adjacent corner + 1 permuted adjacent corner skewb state.)
  4. Permuting the corners from Petrus Block skewb state.
  5. Orienting the corners from Petrus Block + permuted corners skewb state.
  6. Solve the remaining centres from Welder's Mask skewb state.
  7. Orient the corners from 1st layer + centers skewb state.

Advanced variation

  1. Create a Petrus Block from Scrambled skewb state.
  2. Create the Welder's Mask from Petrus Block skewb state.
  3. Solve the rest in one algorithm (L4C+CLL) from Welder's Mask skewb state.

Algorithms for L4C+CLL are available at ranzha.cubing.net.

Monkeydude1313's Method

This is Monkeydude1313's method by Chris Bird. This method uses only one algorithm.

  2. Place the centers from 1st layer skewb state.
  3. Solve the remaining corners from 1st layer + centers skewb state.

Cyril Castella's beginner's variation

  1. Permute 1st layer corners next to a center from Scrambled skewb state.
  2. Orient 1st layer corners from Permuted corners skewb state.
  3. Place the centers from 1st layer skewb state.
  4. Solve the remaining corners from 1st layer + centers skewb state.
