So, I was wondering, what method do you use? I personally am learning fridrich (I have to memorize more PLL algorithms). Before that I used the beginner method.

Can you please me more specific as to which beginners method you used? I personally did the 1L edge first, then 1L corners, then the 2L edges, then the OLL cross, then OLL corners, then PLL edges then PLL corners for the solve

But i ask because a few of my friends use a beginners method of 1L corners, then 1L edges, then 2L edges, then solve corners, then orient edges and then permute them for the solve

do you use either of those two or a different beginners method?

by the way, i now use Fridrich

I'm always beggin' my cube to solve itself, so that's the method I voted for.

i now use fridrich mostly, when I say beginner, I mean either the method that you use, or either the instructions that come with a rubik's brand cube when you buy one.

:lol: HAHA! I've heard many jokes about spelling beginner as begginer, but thats the best one so far.
btw, I use petrus and average sub-30 (i suck at block-building but I just never liked fridrich as I CANNOT look ahead that well)

You can not look ahead that well and are using Petrus because of that? :shock:

I'm moving to use 2 look OLL with Fridrich F2L and PLL, but right now I only use 2 OLL algorithms and about 17/21 PLL.

Q

Well, I guess I kind of said that wrong. It's more the finding the pieces. I.E., I know all of the F2L algorithms, just I have to pause between all of them in order to find another pair. I guess I'm bad looking ahead during an algorithm. In free moving (block-building), I can look ahead.

Heh, i use my own excruciatingly slow beginner type method. It's 1L intuitive, 2L edges, orient 3L edges, permute 3L corners, permute 3L edges, orient 3L corners. I can get sub-1 if i have a nice cube/lucky solve, but i mostly solve it for fun. I like the fact that i CAN solve it(and i only had to learn 4 algorithms to do so). If that counts for anything. I've actually been interested in learning some F2L algs, but i'm content with my layer-by-layer approach at this point.

No method, I just twist randomly and have a lot of luck since it always comes togther somehow.

By the way, isn't this like the 100th thread of this kind?
