I recently got the helicopter dodecahedron, and had scrambled and solved it up to the last layer without having jumbled it. One of my friends performed some jumbling moves on it, and now I have it in this state, and can't get any further. Can anyone help me out with a solution from here?

Have you solved a helicopter cube with jumbling? You solve those last centers pretty much like you would on a regular helicopter-you're going to have to use jumbling sequences.

No, I haven't, but I'll try finding a tutorial, thanks.

I've looked at your photo and I can confirm that the shield/triangle pieces in the center are indeed out of their orbits. You're going to have to do some jumbling to fix them.

Ok, I thought so. Tips for solving would be freely accepted.

This is by far the best tutorial for the helicopter/curvy copter. Just apply the same thing to the helicopter dodecahedron
RedKB's - Jumbling Tutorial for the Curvy Copter and Helicopter Cube

Thanks everyone, I ended up fixing the jumbling with RedKB's tutorial.
