So Close! But Not Quite.

I still have not succeeded in solving a cube from start to finish on the first try of a scramble with my eyes closed. This time I ended up with all pieces in place, all edges solved, but 4 twisted corners. Here is the scramble and my initial analysis.


U' R2 B L' F' D B R U R F R2 F' R' D B2 L' F U' L D' L' F U' L2
O down W front L U' D2
FL setup; double swap R; Twist A (c) and B (a); L'F'; Twist D (c) and C (a)
Twist S (c) and R (a)
Flip I and K edges

So since I messed up on the initial try I may as well see what I can learn. Let's try again with eyes open. OK, here is something I missed in my initial analysis. D needs to go anti and C clock. And both A and B need to go anti.

Here is the solution revised.

U' R2 B L' F' D B R U R F R2 F' R' D B2 L' F U' L D' L' F U' L2
O down W front L U' D2
FL setup; double swap R; Twist A (c) and B (a); Twist J (a) and K (c); LiFi
Twist W (c) and X (a)
Flip I and K edges

Victory! Solved it on my second try. I think that is the best I have done so far. But now I need to put the scramble back on and make sense of it.
