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.

Before letting you play with your Rubik’s cube, I would still like to teach you a couple of tips. There are lots of algorithms for doing this, but I like this one the best.
Now that you know the beginner method, you can begin to introduce the concepts in this guide into your solves. Move on to the next sections, but keep starting with the cross on the bottom. If we consider jessicq first two layers as solved intuitively, there is in total 78 algorithms to learn to solve the last layer: Well here is where your journey begins.
This page was last edited on 12 Septemberat Having a PLL skip has a chance out of 72 to happen. This will make you save huge amounts of time.
To this end, the vast majority of the algorithms on this page are comprised of many Rs and Us, as they are easy algoritbms perform sorry lefties. First we will turn the white corner so that it is not white on top anymore and then solve it with one of the formulas presented above. Fridrich was one of five cubers who advanced into the finals, among them, Mirek Goljan.
Remember when I said ‘wasting time is bad’? I would advice you algoritms get the MoYu Aolong v2, best speed cube ever!
Jessica Fridrich – Wiki
Have a go on your cube, and see if you can work out how to solve any of the pairs. Do not under-estimate the progress you can make by just looking at the cube and trying to figure out the cross.
It takes practise, and the next little section is all about how to be better at F2L. From Wikibooks, open books for an open world. It’s beautiful, and no horrid cube rotations. Because if everything that is solved is in the back, then it is much easier to find what to solve next. The first approach involves taking each edge piece, putting it above where it needs to go, and turning the appropriate face twice to place the piece on the bottom layer.
In the following example, you can see that the ‘headlights’ are on the Front face, as the top layer corners are both blue. If you are thinking “how the dickens is anyone supposed to do this in 4. The rotation of the upper layer will then bring the pair to where it needs to be once solved. According to me, it is much more interesting to find all the cases by yourself.
The whole cross solving should be planned during the 15 seconds of inspection, before starting the resolution. To join the pair, UR jessica move the edge into algorothms position where the corner can attach to it properly, then U will join the pair and R’ will put it on the top. But just look at it. You now know the basic ideas of F2L. Both have the same effect, but a double layer turn is quicker.
A tip for training is to do the cross blindfolded. I would recommend you to start with the formulas that orient 3 cornersjeseica they are easy and you know them already. But if you want to solve the cube under 20 seconds, that’s a very important step.
On the following example, we can see that a simple rotation of the right face will pair the red white bleu corner and the red blue edge. How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube.
Sometimes you can even take a minute to think on how to solve the cross. The first layer corners and edges of the second layer are put into their correct positions simultaneously four pairs.
If you perform each algorithm as algodithms as humanly possible, you don’t leave yourself much time to analyse the cube and isolate the next corner-edge pair you want to frivrich. Consider this situation, and the two approaches to solving it:. This case occurs when the white corner has the white on top. It’s ok, no one has to know. To solve this, we are going to use the Y PLL, which is made up of the following: Length moves will appear here Algorithm.
As mentioned above, the sections in this method don’t have to be learned sequentially. To do this, you need to look for ‘headlights’ – a face where both top layer corners jessics the same colour presumably named due to their resemblance to the headlights of a car. The important part of F2L is being able to solve each of the pairs without affecting any of the other previously apgorithms pairs. This can’t be solved as simply, but the idea is exactly the same. Not turning the cube on this special case saves you about seconds.
It also avoids to flip the cube when the cross is finished, which will save time too.
Vision and thinking should be much faster too. It is fricrich time to start practicing! So the first algorithm orients all the last layer pieces makes them all face the right way, i. Now insert the pair into its slot. To find the pattern on the corners, just focus on the side colors of the corners. Again, these algorithm jssica arranged in what I think is a sensible order but you are free to learn them however you please.
