    Everyone should find his own route which should be the fastest that he can do the tricks on, but I'll share my experience to make it easier for you. So here is my route for this one. Pretty safe stuff, mixed from both (watuhboy (see solution above) and ovendonkey (see my second posted video)) videos.

    Practicing the New Eden time trial up until two stars helps a lot for this. Do that. Use route in the first video I posted. (credit to motoxmadman)
    Some hints on that:
    The combo at 0:17 is wallrun, wall climb, turn, jump.
    The combo at 0:22 is wallrun, turn, wall climb, turn, jump.
    At 0:27, you might want to take the upper route later in the speed run, because it is safer, but you lose a few seconds. Your choice.
    I couldn't land the jump at 0:40, so I used the ground route, still enough for two stars.
    The combo at 0:55 is wallrun, turn, jump, coil. Make sure you press the jump right after the turn, otherwise you won't make it over the fence.

    Now that you've got your two stars or at least close on the time trial, you can save a lot of time here. On to the speed run!

    I mostly used the ovendonkey (former world record) route (see second video), for the first part until the elevator shaft, the rest was too tricky so I switched to watuhboy's route for the mall.

    The suicide jumps / checkpoint exploits didn't work for me so I didn't use them. So I started off with watuhboy's until I was on the ground.

    I used ovendonkey's until 1:14, there I did not [wallclimb, turn, jump] but just jumped right up.
    I couldn't make his jump in the elevator shaft at 2:13, so I used watuhboy's way up until the start of the New Eden time trial part.
    I couldn't do any of ovendonkey's crazy tricks in the mall, so I used watuhboy's route after the time trial part.

    In the end after the ventilator drop, I always got shot by the machine gunner, so I found my own method here:
    If you have at least one minute left after ventilator drop, use this failsafe method, which took me 50 seconds until the end of the level. After breaking the first glass, slow time and disarm the guard. Take his gun the normal way up, then stay out of sight and shoot the two glass pieces on the very right. Drop the gun and use the hole you made and the guards won't shoot you.

    That's it. Good luck on this. :)
