Hi,

I am trying to learn M2 for blindsolving the cube with the M2/Old Pochmann method. I am not able to understand it nor to perform by just following the instructions.

I use the Speffz letter scheme A-X and try to do the following:

(A): M2

(B): R’ U R U’ M2 U R’ U’ R

©: U2 M’ U2 M’

(D): L U’ L’ U M2 U’ L U L’

(E): B L’ B’ M2 B L B’

(F): B L2 B’ M2 B L2 B’

(G): B L B’ M2 B L’ B’

( H ): L’ B L B’ M2 B L’ B’ L OR u’ L’ u M2 u’ L u

(I): D M’ U R2 U’ M U R2 U’ D’ M2

(J ): U R U’ M2 U R’ U’

(L): U’ L’ U M2 U’ L U

(M): B’ R B M2 B’ R’ B

(N): R B’ R’ B M2 B’ R B R’ OR u R u’ M2 u R’ u’

(O): B’ R’ B M2 B’ R B

§: B’ R2 B M2 B’ R2 B

(Q): B’ R B U R2 U’ M2 U R2 U’ B’ R’ B

®: U’ L U M2 U’ L’ U

(S): M2 D U R2 U’ M’ U R2 U’ M D’

(T): U R’ U’ M2 U R U’

(V): U R2 U’ M2 U R2 U’

(W): M U2 M U2

(X) : U’ L2 U M2 U’ L2 U

My problem is that I don’t understand the buffer position. It is so easy for the corners with the Old Pochmann method. The buffer there is always A. But for M2 the buffer seems to be U, is that right? Do I have to bring U to A BEFORE I perform the permutations above? Whatever way I try to solve the cube I get it wrong.
