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 not exactly the same, as you’ll have noticed – the vridrich is upside down. Either 2, 3 or 4 corners are incorrectly oriented. To this end, the vast majority of the algorithms on this page are comprised of many Rs and Us, as they are easy to perform sorry lefties. You now know the basic ideas of F2L.

The last layer is solved by first orienting and then permuting the last layer algorityms using a large number of algorithms.

To find the pattern on the corners, just focus on the side colors of the corners. There is a third tricky case.

Fridrich method : The fastest Rubik’s cube solution for 3x3x3 – Rubik’s Cube

Rubik signed the notebook at the Rubik’s Cube World Championship in Budapest inan event where Fridrich finished tenth. OLL consists of 57 different algorithms. You can do this in whatever order you choose but I have arranged them in what I think is a sensible order to learn them – I have grouped similar algorithms, and put what I think are the easier ones first.

If doing the cross on the bottom takes much longer than when doing it on the top, don’t be disheartened! The corner piece is paired with the edge piece, and the pair is inserted into the right place. Here’s a similar example:. Or the two corners are next to each other and the yellow is on the side. There are lots of algorithms for doing this, but I like this one the best. Speedup your solving time without any effort.


For example, consider the following two algorithms:. Fridrich, then 17, was representing Czechoslovakia, and finished in tenth place.

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube/CFOP

This will be awkward the first few times you attempt it, but it is certainly worth practising. 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. Even though you can already solve this case using the beginner way, I would take the time to practise and learn this algorithm now.

They also can be performed very quickly. This can’t a,gorithms solved as simply, but the idea is exactly the same. From Wikibooks, open books for an open world. The jessica sections of the algorithm show the two steps in the same procedure as before – the first bracketed section shows the pairing of the two cubies, and the second section shows the pair being inserted correctly. Try to also remember that you probably have two hands. As everything changes when rotating the cube, all your inspection will be hard to transpose.

This page was last edited on 12 Septemberat I taught them in the page of the tips for solving the Rubik’s cube. But we are going to use either the one or the other depending on the case.

I assure you that the rabbit hole goes even deeper than that, and every situation actually has multiple algorithms for your learning pleasure.

Turning the whole cube in fridricb hands is a slow waste of time. Super-durable and solid stickers with vivid colors will not peel off or fade easily.

First, you can just use the above algorithm anyway, which will make some headlights for you to solve as above. Fridricn is the key to solve the cube under 20 seconds or even 10 seconds if you really master the method. But because you’re not a beginner any more, you can be a little clever if you find yourself presented with this:. So you’ve gone through the beginner’s method a few times, and maybe you can solve the cube unaided every time.


It can be quite difficult certainly so if fidrich only just started doing it upside down but with practice it will become very easy to isolate only the four edge pieces you need and formulate a basic plan to get them algoritums a cross. The aim is to perform the moves continuously and to have a good transition between each step.

Computer Engineering Professor Years Active: Through practice, your lookahead will improve to a point where you jessicq perform every algorithm very quickly, but without losing the ability to know what you’re doing next.

The corner pieces should then be permuted correctly in relation to each other – but you might need to turn the top layer so that they are back in the right places.

Floppy Cube 1x3x3 Rubik’s Domino 2x3x3. Every algorithm will save you time. COLL and CLL both mean different things to other cubers, and sticking to convention makes things a lot easier for everyone involved. Or do you feel like you need a better cube? Both algorithms solve the F2L fridriich and use the same number of moves.

It also avoids to flip the cube when the cross is finished, which will save time too. Fridrich first saw a Rubik’s Cube at the age of 16 in March We just need to solve the remaining edges and the cube will be solved.

It is the first step to the full Fridrich method, used by speedcubers. This idea of finding an empty space on the frierich and using it to build a corner-edge pair is crucial to F2L, as of course you want to be able to construct each of the four F2L pairs without disturbing any previously solved ones. However, knowing that you can solve this step using just one algorithm is useful during the learning process!

Of course, this will need a lot of practice. Compare these two algorithms:.
