It is also known as the Fridrich Method after its popularizer, Jessica Fridrich. In part due to Fridrich’s publication of the method on her website in , CFOP has . If you have already read our beginner’s solution guide, you will already know how to do this step. But here are a few tips on how to get faster at. Then that means you probably only know how to solve the Rubiks Cube the easy way. Get fast with that puzzle and learn it the faster and more.

This is fairly intuitive and easy so you should find all four pairs this way. It is usually tutofial starting with the white colored squares. Have a look at the following case:. Or you can use algorithms. This method is named after its creator, Jessica Fridrich. Menu 1 Fridrich method: But I don’t recommend it because it is titorial slower than full PLL. As everything changes when rotating the cube, all your inspection will be hard to transpose. Advanced solution for Rubik’s cube 3×3.

I would recommend you to start learning all of them only when you already know all the PLLs. It is of course quicker but also requires to learn a lot of formulas. If you do UF’U2, you can ttorial this case into case 2 above. But doing it with your left hand will be quicker!

The goal with this step of Fridrich method is to solve the cube. Most of the time, what slows you down is your inspection and your thinking.


Every algorithm will save you time. It helps you to focus on unsolved faces, instead of focusing on the white face. To improve on the cross, my advice is to solve it blindfolded. Three different cases can happen here. Fridrich method is also called CFOP. To join the pair, UR will move the edge into a position where the corner can attach to it properly, then U will join the pair and R’ will put it on the top. Then you do the corners. Vision and thinking should be much faster too.

The last layer algorithm are quite difficult to find and identify by yourself. If you don’t, you may break other pairs that have been already built before. Or the two corners are next to each other and the yellows are not on the same side. Your aim is to make all yellow sides face up. But we are going to use either the one or the other depending on the case.

This corner and edge are called a pair. I would recommend you to start with these ones. You just need to count how many corners are not yellow on top. Speedup your solving time without any effort. You can also do this in 2-Look. Here is what it looks like with the animations:.

Cross – You solve a cross on bottom, like the layer by layer method. From these 3 cases, you should be able to deduce the entire solve. If you have 0 corner to orient then you can directly move on to the next step.


How to Speedsolve the Rubik’s Cube – CFOP Method Explained

You should now decide whether you want to be colour neutral or, well, not colour neutral. Don’t forget to align the centers pieces of the cube! Every second you do not rotate any face can be saved. Here are the magic algorithms:. This differs from case 2 only by the orientation of the edge blue is up, not orange. In fact, sub-2 cross is not metbod that hard.

Simulating moves mentally will help you for the next solves and you will become more and more familiar with efficient cross solving. The cases described below are designed to help you gain that intuition.

Thankfully, you do not need to learn everything at once and each of these two steps can be separated in two sub-steps.

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube/CFOP

To solve this, we are going to use the Y PLL, which is made up of the following: Good control of the cube. The corner firsts methods that were the best at the time did not allow such a fast vision. Flipping the cube fridricy the time when no move can be performed.

Just put the solved face in front of you and you will need to permute the three remaining edges.
