F2L Tutorial Remade!
My attempt at logically explaining exactly how the F2L in the Fridrich method works, so that you will never have to learn the algorithms for it. The method that I explain here is foolproof, meaning that it works every time, but takes a little longer. Placing one corner-edge pair should not take more than about 7 or 8 moves. If some move is taking you longer, it is probably a good idea to brute force learn the algorithm for it. This is however quite rare, so you don't have to worry about it unless you want to go for below 20 seconds or so, full solve.

Part1: Case1, Case2
Part2: Case3, examples

links to solutions:

NOTE: please be aware that the way I handle the cases here is NOT always optimal. I am just trying to show a foolproof way of handling F2L in general, and most of the cases I showed for example in the Example Solves can be done MUCH faster. Look into the solutions, or try to derive the fast versions yourself!
