Other Handy Info

What's the difference between COLL and CMLL?

COLL stands for Corners of Last Layer
CMLL stands for Corners of Last Layer but with NO regard for the M slice

COLL will permute and orientate the last layer corners whilst also permuting the last layer edges. You can use COLL as long as you have all of your last layer edges oriented correctly

CMLL will permute and orientate the last layer corners but complete disregard the last layer edges.
