I have been playing with my Dayan gem III, I started with the white hexagonal face and I kept buildin up very intuitively, but in the las layer I need to permute/rotate 4 corners, I really like my method but I cannot find a solution for the last hexagonal face

I just looked in my DaYan Gem III notes and I don't have a pure way to cycle the corners. I thought Superantonio Vivaldi's method for the last layer was quite approachable.

Pure 3 cycle is a regular CPS (Corner Piece Series) that will rotate three corners.

Eliasthecollector93 asked about a way to rotate 4 corners: what you need to do is break up 2 more corners to get 6 corners that need to be rotated, then re-solve (solve again) the little triangle tips.

I'm sure this was covered already a while back here:

There is a very simple way to cycle corners using a [4,1] alg.

If R and L are hexagonal faces, and F is a square face, then do this:

(R' L R L') F (L R' L' R) F'

Or something similar. You'll be able to solve the remaining corners on your puzzle using this algorithm and some setup moves.
