It is the key to solve the cube under 20 seconds or even 10 seconds if you really master the method. This method is named after its creator, Jessica Fridrich. He said: “I am using the Fridrich method.” I asked with a surprise in my voice: ” You actually memorized ALL algorithms?” His answer was: “No. The Fridrich method or the CFOP method (cross, F2L, OLL, PLL) is a fast method for solving the Rubik’s Cube created by Jessica Fridrich. It consists of four.

But just look at it. Indeed, the whole cross is assembled on the bottom layer instead of the top. But because you’re not a beginner any more, you can be a little clever if you find yourself presented with this:.

They were used the one after the other in the step 7 of the beginners method. I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed this introduction to speedcubing, a hobby that I and many others enjoy very much. Flipping the cube is the algkrithms when no move can be performed.

Before letting you algoritms with your Rubik’s cube, I would still like to teach you a couple of tips. It’s all very well and good being able to perform algorith,s quickly, but perhaps the most important thing with F2L is to perform the algorithms continuously. With a bit of practice, you left and right hands can solve cases equally as fast. If you clicked the link to the algorithm page before, you’ll have seen that the list is indeed quite long. All the algorithms for this step are super easy and can messica performed under a second.

If you have 0 corner to orient then you can directly move on to the next step. Going slowly isn’t better – going faster is better, but you’ll get faster by going slower. At first, we will do it in two steps: It also avoids to flip the cube when the cross is finished, which will save time too. They are the only ones and the best way to solve them is not really instinctive. Once you are at that jesscia, you should be able to solve every cross in under 1.


I found all these cases intuitively, just with practice. Solving the corners first and then the edges.

Speedcubing Guide So you’ve gone through the beginner’s method a few times, and maybe you can solve the cube unaided every time.

Have a go on your cube, and see if you can work out how to solve any of the pairs. Jessica FridrichBinghamton University. I would recommend that you keep using the 2-look algorithms until you feel confident with most of this speedcubing guide.

It takes practise, and the next little section is all about how to be better at F2L. This completes the cube, which you probably know looks like this:. This advice applies to all of steps in this guide, but it is most important during F2L and step 1, the cross.

Rubik signed the notebook at the Rubik’s Cube World Championship in Budapest inan event where Fridrich finished tenth. To know it fully there are about 80 hessica to learn and that is why I am going to first introduce an intermediary method.

You just need to count how many corners are not yellow on top. The second algorithm looks the picture of perfection – short and repetitive.

Some of them even happen less than 0. I would also advice you to solve the cross on the bottom layer from the beginning. But the second algorithm is jesscia quicker to perform, as you don’t have to adjust your hand position at all.


Secondly, try to minimize the number of times you flip the whole cube during the resolution. Or the two corners algotithms next to each other and the yellow is on the side.

You will also have noticed that the first two brackets are written in red. In a last step, we will see how to orient both at the same time.

A tip for training is to do the cross blindfolded. Being able to recognise it and perform it without thinking will make the task of learning lots of algorithms much, much easier.

This should be immediate. It is usually done starting with the white colored squares.

Now, when you’re solving the cube using the full CFOP method, the whole last layer is supposed to be solved in two steps:.

This means that doing the cross on the bottom is difficult, as they have come to rely on algorithms for situations that are suddenly upside-down. Algoritjms are, however, a few situations you might find yourself in where this procedure is not quite so obvious.

This page was last edited on 17 Decemberat I would recommend you to start with these ones. As you might well imagine, this means that full CFOP has a lot of algorithms in it – one for every algorrithms you might encounter. But now you’re hooked.
