The Human Thistlethwaite Algorithm (abbreviated to HTA) is a humanusable version, proposed by Ryan Heise, of the Thistlethwaite's algorithm. The solution is broken down into exactly the same basic steps of the computer Thistlethwaite algorithm, but each step in the human version is broken down into further substeps to make it managable for a human solver. The system proceeds as follows:
 Reduction to <U,D,L,R,F2,B2>
 Reduction to <U,D,L2,R2,F2,B2>
 placement of U/D edges in U/D faces
 Corner Orientation, and placement
 Reduction to <U2,D2,L2,R2,F2,B2>
 Corners
 Edges
 Final Solve
Permutation of all pieces using only 180 degree faces turns
