# M2/R2

From Speedsolving.com Wiki

(Redirected from R2)

M2 and R2 are blindsolving methods developed by Stefan Pochmann. M2 is for solving edges and R2 is for solving corners. The methods solve one piece at a time, using conjugates composed of M2 or R2 to swap the contents of a 'buffer' location with a target location.

NOTE: r2 and R2 are slightly different. r2 (with lowercase r) is for 4x4 cubes. See external links.
