I normally solve this case by turning the two noninvolved faces repeatedly... I.E. if the corners are bottom left front and bottom left back I would do (R U)x7 R

The problem is I am trying to drop my 2x2 time and this algorithm is rather unwieldy..... So can anyone offer me a substitute algorithm?

Thanks!

U2 R' U' R2 U' R' U' R U' R' U' is what I use. Here you can find very good 2x2 algorithms. The one you were looking for is one of the U-cases in CLL.

That OLL is known as headlights. Put the two rotated corners on the top right, and do F, R, U, R', U', F'.

He's looking for the CLL, which is what EMI gave him.
