    Rubik's Cube

    During one of the major Rubik's cube competitions a few years ago, most of the ten contestants used the old T-method, while a couple used a new method that consists mainly of getting all the corners first. Does anybody know where I might be able to find this solution?

    Don't blame me for the vagueness - I'm actually trying to track this down for a friend.

    Lol never had the patience to solve one of those. I know someone who can do it in about a minute though

    well...I recently found my old cube, and that solution is included with it. I might be able to scan it for you if you want.

    edit:: google has turned up a bunch of stuff but i haven't looked at it though.
