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. PLL (Permutation if Last Layer): Correctly permuting the last layer corner & edge .. the F2L, know the Full PLL and 2 look OLL, and finally go for the full OLL too. So I’m really new to all these terms. Can someone explain to me what the acronyms PLL / OLL / and F2l mean? (And any others that exist).

If you clicked the link to the algorithm page before, you’ll have seen that the list is indeed quite long. World Cube Association Regulation A3a1 states that a competitor has up to 15 seconds of inspection time before attempting a solve, plll you would want to be spending this time mentally formulating a complete solution to the cross which you could then execute very quickly at the start of your solve.

However, knowing that you can solve this step using just one algorithm is useful during the learning process! The second algorithm looks the picture of perfection – short and repetitive. If they need to move clockwise, then use this algorithm:. Solve the last layer of the Megaminx puzzle How To: This will be awkward the first few times you attempt it, but it is certainly worth practising.

Basic layer-by-layer methods were among the first to arise during the early s cube craze. Have a go on your cube, and see if you can work out how to solve any of the pairs. If you had no correct v2l in your last layer, you can just use one of the above algorithms anyway, like with the corners in the previous step.


An intuitive way of thinking about this situation might produce something like the first algorithm, as it follows the usual principles of pairing the edge and corner piece and inserting them together. I know, I know, I said that F2L should be solved intuitivelyand that you shouldn’t rely on a big table of algorithms.

If you do UF’U2, you can turn this case into case 2 above. If you only have one, then which algorithm you use depends on the direction that the other edges need to be cycled.

How to Speedsolve the Rubik’s Cube

I hope this helped. Turning the whole cube in your hands is a slow waste of time. But just look at it. PLL gets the same treatment, as we’ll be permuting the corners first and then the edges.

So for OLL, instead of orienting every piece in the last layer at once, we’ll do the edges first and then the corners. Wasting time is bad. Being able to recognise it and perform it without thinking will make the task of learning lots of algorithms much, much easier. It is usually done starting with the white colored squares. You should do it on the bottom because then it’s easier to locate the other pieces. It’s easier to perform the quick trigger first and then add on the U’, as opposed to modifying a well-practised sequence.

This is used in Fridrich a method to solve the cube’s first two layers. Joined Apr 29, Messages 1, Likes 2. Try to also remember that you probably have two hands. There are, of course, many more cases than this, but most can be solved with the strategies above or can be reduced to one of the above cases.

Bounb Member Feb 8, Going slowly isn’t better – going faster is better, but you’ll get faster by going slower.

I can’t ever see myself making ‘homemade’ algorithms. Solve the Rubik’s Cube faster with shortcuts How To: You are currently olll our forum as a guest which gives you limited access to join discussions and access our other features. But sometimes it can be advantageous to disturb unsolved spaces by choosing a space to build your corner-edge pair that also assists the creation of the next pair.
