Special Shortcuts

Sometimes, when the F2L pieces are stuck in other slots, there are shortcuts for solving them. Here are some examples. There are probably more, but I find these the easiest to do when these cases turn up. These diagrams might be confusing because they only show three sides, so check out the Java Cubes [coming soon!] for these cases if they are not clear.
