Alright so I can get down to the last layer on a tuttminx and solve the edges but not the corners. How do you solve them? Any help is apprieciated.

Don't worry, it is not so hard to find a (3,1) commutator that does a pure 3-cycle of corners.
I came up with one, that cycles corners between 3 different Pent-faces.
With 3 setup moves at the beginning and reversing them at the end, I can cycle 3 corners on one Pent-face.
For now a vague hint [Take a corner commutator from a 3x3x3 involving moves of 3 faces and replace 90 degree turns of two faces by 180 degree turns of two Hex-faces. Use a Pent-face as the remaining third face.]

I pretty much came up with the same way to solve the final corners

One thing that is nice about this puzzle is that it is so large you have a lot of room to experiment without effecting the area you are working on solving. If you are down to the final few pieces, turn the puzzle over and play around with some move sequences on some of the solved sides to see how the pieces move around. You should be able to find something you can apply (with the addition of some setup moves) to the area you still need to solve.
