I would really appreciate opinions on this method. its meant to be faster and simpler than the beginners method that thrawst teaches youtube. I'm using my new 3d-printed speed square-1 that I posted about earlier. enjoy!

VERY interesting method. I think it would work great for Roux solvers.

I created my own method for the Square-1 a while ago which involves a unique method of orienting the layers, which uses only 1 algorithm. It also involves permuting the corners on both layers at the same time, and then all of the edges at the same time.

My fastest time is about 43 seconds using it, but yours looks like it has even more potential!

Only 1 algorithm? That would be nice for a person who has trouble memorizing (like me heh)

Do you have a youtube vid online on it?

Not yet. I can make one if you'd like though, but I do need a new Square-1...
Oh, and I will warn you that while orientation uses only 1 algorithm, there are a LOT of algorithms for permutation...but I could probably optimize it for a low algorithm method if you'd like

Oh dear.. lol

well.. currently I CAN solve it (haven't picked it up in ages though), using SuperAntonioVivaldi's instruction video. I doubt it would be a speedsolving manner.. I can see myself solving it while others are doing multiblind or something

But then one would need a peek sheet.. and well.. yeah haha.
