    sounds like me only the numbers are slightly lower,
    My version of it:
    I used to solve an average of maybe 16 seconds but now i don't solve anymore. I could solve one now maybe 23 sec.
    :D

    Man, I've worked on the 1x1 for hours at a time and watched a billion tutorials but I can't figure out how to solve it! What's your secret?

    Yeah, I know how you feel, bro. I couldn't figure it out either for years. But then this astounding chap made a walkthrough and with a bit of practice I was able to solve it at lighting-speed!


    Remember the all-important MIDDLE FINGER and THUMB on both hands. You NEED these to solve the cube.

    Do you do F2L, complete the top then align the pieces or align the pieces first then complete the top?

    I guess complete the top than align the pieces but idk that question was a little fuzzy to me
    I do C.F.O.P. method but with a two step oll or O.
    So I make the bottom cross than complete the f2l (or fiirst two layers) simultaneously by pairing the edge with the corner and then inserting them to the proper corner, then I Orient the top face to all the same color then I permute the last pieces simoltainiously and the cube is solved.
    Also I'm what people call color-neutral which means I can start on any side.
    Sorry if I made that too complicaded, I just took an iQ test and got a 140 so I guess I'm bragging:D but I bet my spelling was pathetic lol

    You have to use F2L if u want to speed solve

    For F2L, you have to solve everything upside down, so i solve the cross upside down, then create F2L 'pairs' and finish the white layer whilst completing the first two layers hence F2L. Then the rest. Its hard to explain through text

    yeah I have recently become color neutral. I used to solve with green on the top and blue on the bottom. I also do CFOP.
