## Sune Variant OLL (SVOLL)

Possibly the easiest OLL method available. It only requires the knowledge of a single algorithm - sune. This algorithm is just used repeatedly until the top layer is oriented to a solid color.

Created by yours truly.

Note: This is a pretty lolsy OLL method; but it is truly dirt simple. Recognition is stupid-easy and it's very intuitive. I don't really recommend this for speedsolving, but sub-15 average is pretty easy.

## Why use it?

- It requires only one algorithm.
- It's intuitive.
- Recognition is easy.
- Sune takes roughly 0.5 seconds to execute. The worst cases (with pure SVOLL) will require 5 sunes. This is still only ~2.5 seconds.
- It can be used with regular OLL very effectively (namely edge orientation and/or 2 look OLL).

## The concept

The idea is that fat sune (r U R' U R U2 r') orients adjacent edges while regular sune (R U R' U R U2 R') orients corners and permutes adjacent edges. Using these two, we can orient the last layer as follows:

- Use fat sune if no edges are oriented (never occurs if you use partial edge control).
- Permute the edges using sune so that two oriented edges are adjacent to each other.
- Use fat sune to orient the remaining edges.
- Use sune to orient the corners.

## Fat Sune

Fat sune (r U R' U R U2 r') can be used to orient adjacent edges (it flips corners, too; but that's irrelevant).

Example:

Example:

## Sune

Sune (R U R' U R U2 R') can be used to orient corners while preserving the orientation of edges. However, it also PERMUTES edges.

Example:

Example:

Notice that the corner orientation changed but the edges also shifted from a line position to an L position. The left edge moves to the right position and the right edge goes to the top position (referring to the diagram).

## Useful things to know

As far as the method goes, that's it. If you can understand what those algorithms do to the pieces, you can pretty much figure out all of the cases very quickly. However, it is useful to learn certain cases such as the mirrors of the algorithms and possibly the inverses, though it's not required.

## Two example SVOLL cases

We are now left with a regular sune, so set up with a U'
