Few days ago, I made an easy bandaged mod cube.

viewtopic.php?f=15&t=13753

It's really easy mod, only bandaged three pair.
And I think it is easy to solve, then I don't think profoundly, many rotated to scramble. (3rd photo)

But the guess is so silly, I can't solve it now.
If you can imagine the clue to solve this one, will you advise me ?

The trick for solving this bandaged cube is to solve not the original sinature, but the one in the first picture.
I experienced that this signature can be solved with a mixture of intuition and algorithms I knew (not many!). After you achieved this permutation you do:
Blue' Grey2 Blue Grey' Red Grey Red' Grey'

BTW: You did the same mistake as I did years ago. You chose the more symmetrical signature over the easier one.

My method is different to Andreas's. Place the corner in between the three bandaged pieces at DRF, and then do R' D' R. Now you can basically do R U^n R' and F' U^n F moves at will. You can also do U and u moves to set up, which means you can solve the middle layer using a LBL type method. A bunch of last layer algs also work, or you can just try blockbuilding and see how that goes. The only inaccessible piece (the one that starts off at DL) can be solved beforehand, and the centers should also be solved beforehand. The following 2-2-swap works and is very helpful:
R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U'.

EDIT: I timed a solve and got 5 minutes 9.04 seconds

Yes, just I think too. His cube is so cool.
And his cube is just I wanted cube, "any type bandaged pattern cube".
We need only the 1x2, 2x2, 1x3, 2x3, and any bandage plates, then the cube change the shape easily.

May I try to make similarly cube for mine ? > Andreas Nortmann

Thanks for the praise. But it is nothing new:
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=10518

@Hidetoshi: Yes. You can make similar one. But show it to us. I am not very satisfied with the choice of colors.
And your version looks far better then my old one.

This is one of my answer.

I found the 6 colors, and four lines bandage keeps completely lock.
I used Nano-block that is sold in Japan, and there are so many colors.
