thanks

This one is impossible. No algorithm can flip just a single edge. Also, the case when the single edge is flipped does not count in the 46 quintillion possibilities of the cube.

What they're saying is... no.  We don't have one.  This cube has been
assembled / stickered incorrectly.  You, or someone else has probably
taken the cube apart at some point and not assembled it correctly.

Turn the offending face 45 degrees (so it is diagonal) and then pop our
the edge piece.  You may need a lever to help if the cube is stiff.  I
use a table knife or a flat bladed screwdriver.  Turn the edge over and
snap it back in.
Please take off topic discussion off this forum. Thanks.
