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. To solve Rubik’s cube, a person has to use a solving method. Fridrich method is one of the easiest and widely used method around the globe!! There are several .

Those new to OLL break up the step into two. That is a great first goal and metod help you to solve the Rubik’s cube under 20 seconds. Several high-profile cubers have long disputed this terminology; Ron van Bruchemfamously, has publicly written that he will never call CFOP the “Fridrich Method.

I would tridrich you to start with the formulas that orient 3 cornersbecause they are easy and you know them already. Length moves will appear here Algorithm. They were used the one after the other in the step 7 of the beginners method. Uttorial just need to solve the remaining edges and the cube will be solved.

It is up to you to find your own style and solution. To know it fully there are about 80 algorithms to learn and that is why I am going to first introduce an intermediary method.

The rotation of the upper layer will then bring the pair to where it needs to be once solved. In reality, many developments were made in the early ’80s by other cubers who have contributed to the method in its current form.


Now we solve both pieces at the same time. It is also known as the Fridrich Method after its popularizer, Jessica Fridrich. Your aim is to make all yellow sides face up. You may be tempted to solve this case with your right hand. Most of the 41 cases have reasonable intuitive solutions.

Secondly, try to minimize the number of times you flip the whole cube during the resolution. This case occurs when the white corner has the white on top. For the edges orientation, you should already know all the cases. Flipping the cube is the time when no move can be performed. A lot of algorithms to learn. To do this, I will still help you by showing you a few basic cases.

I found all these cases intuitively, just with practice. Cross – You solve a cross on bottom, like the layer by layer method. Here are the two main ways for inserting a pair, when the white of the corner is not located on top. When the cross is prepared a half turn to the solved position, it is particularly easy because all you need is to focus on opposite colors. You permute move the pieces on the last layer to solve the entire cube.

This greatly reduces the number of cases; 2-look OLL has 9 cases. Fridrich method was invented by Jessica Fridrich of Czech Republic in the ‘s.

Once finished, fridrch D2 move aligns the cross. Finally, there are two cases that are awful and I would recommend learning them by heart. In particular, it combines some steps of the said method into one by using many more algorithms.

As everything changes when rotating the cube, all your inspection will be hard to transpose. Either one face is completely finished or none is. If it is too difficult for you, maybe you can try it later on If you frudrich about to turn the cube, always make sure that you put the pair you are solving in the back. But to correctly orient the corners, there are 7 different cases. The completion of this step leaves one with just the last layer, typically placed on top. It is now time to start practicing!


In a last step, we will see how to orient both at the same time. In the Fridrich method, the last layer is solved differently from the beginners method.

But now, the cross needs to be solved fast. But I don’t recommend it because it is significantly slower than full Tutoria. Thankfully, fridricj do not need to learn everything at once and each of these two steps can be separated in two sub-steps.

But we are going to use either the one or mwthod other depending on the case. If you’re still confused, take the picture to my left. Either 2, 3 or 4 corners are incorrectly oriented. In fact, sub-2 cross is not even that hard. The basics are described in detail on our page which presents how to solve a Rubik’s cube.

The formulas can seem a bit long but they are quite easy to learn. More precisely, every time you solve a corner, just associate the corresponding edge and fgidrich both at the same time.
