Any puzzle I can't solve in 15 minutes is to be considered HARD

I'm starting to doubt its solvability. Basically, there's just no way to move the 2 and 3 out of the way. And 1 stubbornly clings to the top.
This is the closest that I can get. Last fiddled with by jinydu on 20041211 at 21:44

I think it is solvable, I just haven't done it yet. I can get A to the other two corners and I can move 2 out of the way, but I am missing something to get it to that last corner.

Jinydu,
It only takes 26 steps to get to the status you have achieved. Here are the steps: A, 1, 2, 3, 6 moves in L shape, 3, 2, 6, A, 4, 5, 7, 8 moves in L shape, 7, 5, 8, A, 6 moves in L shape, 2, 3, A, 8, 4, 6, 1 See if these steps help out any: A, 1, 2, 3, 6 moves in L shape, 3, 2, 6, A, 4, 5, 7, 8 moves in L shape, 7, 5, 8, A, 6 moves in L shape, 2, 3, A, 8, 5, 7, A, Fusion  its definitely solvable.

Just for the fun of it, try these moves after you have completed the ones above.
8, 2, 1, 4, 6 moves in L shape, 2, 8 moves in L shape, 3, 1, 2, 6. Study this sequence carefully, its the key to winning. Fusion

I went through that sequence before, but I thought I was farther from the solution because A is farther from its target position.

Could someone please post the full solution (blacked out using the puzzle tags). I can't seem to solve it.

Hmm, there are several typos there. In any case, it seems that once A touches the right side, everything is stuck.
