Sorry, I forgot to mention my method. I solve layer-by-layer: 1c pieces of
the first layer, then 2c, then 3c, then the 2c pieces of the second layer,
then the 3c pieces of the second layer. The last layer requires six steps,
consisting of orientation and permutation of the three types of pieces.
Usually I orient all pieces first, then permute the 1c, 2c, and 3c pieces
respectively, though it’s possible to solve 3c before 2c. In this case, I
had oriented the entire last layer, and was almost done permuting the 2c
pieces, while the 3c pieces were still unsolved (oriented, though). If
you’re curious I can supply a screenshot or log file.

I’d love to change the world, but they haven’t released the source code yet.
