I've had the thing for about 2 hours and my left wrist is hurting pretty bad, so I'm taking a break at the moment.

I know it's not very fast, but I just got it. I hope to get under 3 soon. I took an average and got 4.99.

Yea, I refined my method a tad overnight. I'll try to post another one soon.

if you watch my video around the 1 minute mark you can see a slow version from 1st person view. you notice that i never let go of my right fingers from the puzzle. this will help you out and take about 1 second off of your time.

I've trained up a bit and now I'm around 2.75 average, with no mess-ups.

As for Adam's solution. I'm getting stuck on the last 3-4 flips of the transformation sequence. Also, when you 'unlink' the rings, or basically restore it, I have trouble following that as well.

On another note, 100th post.


[EDIT] Ok, now I got it on the solve part, but the last 1-2 flips always catch and bring me to a halt. Tips?
