      You can, of course, use your standard 3x3x3 method and then just do
      the corners. Something like: do first layer, permute second layer
      corners, orient second layer corners. I used to do this and it worked
      just fine.

      I've now switched to using the first part of the "corners first"
      method called Ortega-Jelinik. I really like this method for a 2x2x2,
      it's very quick with very little memorization (I memorized most
      routines in a day).

      Here's a link to the method:


      Ortega-Jelinik goes:
      - do one side (don't worry about permutation)
      - orient opposite side
      - permute everything

      If I had a decent 2x2x2 (mine's way too loose), I think I could
      probably regularly hit sub-10 seconds with this method and a little
      more practice (US Nationals I averaged 12.86). Your mileage may vary.
