Solve slowly at first and just look at all areas. If rotating during F2L, memorize relative position of all pieces, especially the ones that are in slots. If not rotating, memorize relative position during cross, and use peripheral vision on the 3 faces of the cube visible.
lol, here to help ^_~

dont use vaseline (: most people use sillicone spray but i prefer lubix to speed it up
and at all if u have an orgininal rubiks cube u wont get under 1 minute i guess cause its like the worst cube ever made btw its not a speedcube (:
u should buy another one like a guhong or the dayan zhanchi these are the ones i prefer
any more question just ask :)

It is possible to get solves under one minute with a Rubik's brand cube. It is good to use a cube that moves well though. :)

Hey, I recently started Friedrich method around two months ago and now I'm sub 30. I only know the cross OLLs and I don't know the G-Perms. What would you suggest other than look-ahead to lower my times?

If you people talk about F2L, do you then mean full F2L? I mean do you complete the 2 first layers completely?
