I made some comments about how I thought the Split Jing's Pyraminx worked.
I have now put about 6 hours into trying to unjumble the puzzle without complete success. The closest I have gotten is a single "bar" of pieces jumbled out of place:

I think the appropriate way to see this is to view it as two different groups of pieces that need swapped:

That is, I think the blue groups need swapped and the red groups need swapped. Unfortunately I haven't been able to achieve this and after a lot of trying I usually end up jumbling the puzzle up again. I have gotten to this situation or a situation like it a few times.
Has anyone unjumbled this puzzle yet? Intuition is failing me on this beast.
