So flip the whole cube and start practicing with the cross on the bottom. Menu 1 Fridrich method: Here are the magic algorithms:.

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

This greatly reduces the number of cases; 2-look PLL has 6 cases. According to me, it is much more interesting to find all the cases by yourself.

Sometimes, it is easier to first build the pair and then insert it.

Once finished, a D2 move aligns the cross. To improve on the cross, my advice is to kethod it blindfolded. In fact, sub-2 cross is not even that hard. 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. Retrieved from ” https: Fill in the four slots between the cross pieces, one slot at a time. Advanced solution for Rubik’s cube 3×3. Then you do the corners.


This corner and edge are called a pair. In a last fridrlch, we will see how to orient both at the same time. Here is an extract from Wiki: Do not under-estimate the progress you can make by just looking at the cube and trying to figure out the cross.

Having said that, you can still with a bit of practice, see the best cross solution in 15 seconds and execute it in well under 3 seconds.

CFOP method

The basic idea of the first 2 layers is to pair the edge and the corner. However, you will need to spend a decent amount of time practising this step and the best way to do it is to solve it blindfolded.

To solve this, we are going to use the Y PLL, which is made up of the following: If you don’t, you may break vridrich pairs that have been already built before.

Three different cases can happen here. If you have 0 corner to orient then you can directly move on to the next step. Sometimes you can even take a minute to think on how to solve the cross. Don’t worry if you don’t want learn all that yet. All of the worlds best use a variant of this method, apart from selected few that uses Roux. As a result, many who learned from her website began to call this method the “Fridrich Method,” which explains the common use of the term today.

Some of them even happen less than 0. The rotation of the upper layer will then bring the pair to tutirial it needs to be once solved. Every second you do not tutoriap any face can be saved. This method is named after its creator, Jessica Fridrich.


She says she came with the idea of this method because it allows very fast inspection during the resolution. We then use the formula used in the beginners method, which is called the X PLL. Here is a photo of Jessica while practicing on the Rubik’s cube 3×3. I would also advice you to solve the cross on the bottom layer from the beginning. This is fairly intuitive and easy so you should find all four pairs this way.

While some cubers still insist on the term “CFOP,” Fridrich’s contribution to the popularization of the method is undeniable, and many others accept the term “Fridrich Method” as established terminology and a perfectly valid synonym for “CFOP. Flipping the cube is the time when no move can be performed. From these 3 cases, you should be able to deduce the entire solve.

This is probably the hardest part of the Fridrich method. Solving the corners first and then the edges. Here there are two different cases.

There is a third tricky case. As everything changes when rotating the cube, all your inspection will be hard to transpose. However, note that this is a few seconds slower.

There are here two different cases.
