2+. Last Corner Pair of L Layer - Detailed

There are many possible configurations in this step. This section shows selected solutions for all possible situations (at least 4 turns long). Sometimes the initial U-turn (U, U' or U2) may be necessary to obtain one of the following situations. As you can see, all sequences are at most 6-turns long (the 6-turn sequences do not need an initial U-turn). This sets maximum number of face turns to solve the first four corners to 9 (3 + 6). However, the average number of moves should not exceed 7-8 turns.

Solved pair is in DL and the pair to be solved belongs to DR. D is white, F is green, R is orange, L is red, and B is blue. If you are not sure which position is displayed in some image perform the sequence backwards (reading right to left, R becomes R', R' R, F F', F' F, U U', and U' becomes U) to see the initial state on your cube.
