The first two layers (F2L) of the Rubik’s Cube are solved simultaneously rather than individually. In the Orient last layer (OLL); Permute last layer PLL 4. 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).

Therefore, rotate the cube as little as possible. Although the idea of slowing down in order to speed up may be counter-intuitive, a useful exercise is to practise F2L at an exaggeratedly slow speed.

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

Retrieved from ” https: 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. Bounb Member Feb 8, I’m not exceptionally intuitive when it comes to the cube.

Karthik Member Feb 8, I now have a 4x4x4 getting decent at it a 2x2x2 ok at it and the 5x5x5 not yet scrambled. However, the second algorithm is much faster to perform, as it is essentially the same few moves performed three times.

For example, consider the following two algorithms:. Consider this situation, and the two approaches to solving it:. As you might well imagine, this means that full CFOP has a lot of algorithms in it – one for every situation you might encounter.

This advice applies to all of steps in this guide, but it is pol important during F2L and step 1, the cross. Joined Nov 20, Messages Likes 0. You have two options here. First, you can just use the above algorithm anyway, which will make some headlights for you to solve as above. F2o can be done intuitively without learning algs but instead working it out for yourself or by memorising the 42 case algorithms.

This leaves you with a very start-stop, stuttery solve as you rapidly perform an algorithm and then stop to find the next one. It is recommended that you should start learning using the beginner method first, then use the Fridrich method once you have become proficient at that. Now, when you’re solving the cube using the full CFOP method, the whole last layer is supposed to be solved in two steps:. You needn’t go through the steps in order – you can learn and practise each pll independently, falling back on the beginner method as and when you need it.

It’s beautiful, and no horrid cube rotations. World Cube Association Regulation A3a1 states that a competitor f2p up to 15 seconds of inspection time before attempting a solve, and you would want to be spending this time mentally formulating a complete solution to the cross which you ff2l then execute very quickly at the start of your solve.

Now insert the pair into its slot.

## How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube/CFOP

This idea does not mean that the previous advice of how to perform the algorithms is redundant. They are there so you can see an optimal way to solve each case, but try to not rely on them for every single F2L case you encounter.

Orienting last layer means turning all the pieces of the last layer fl2 yellow faces upwards. Maybe you’re even getting pretty good, and can consistently do it in under 2 minutes.

You can also order the table by trigger, which I think is much more conducive to memorisation. This completes the cube, which you probably know looks like this:.

Olp second option is this algorithm:. Just like the beginner guide, the rest of the last layer isn’t an intuitive thing you can just work out if you can, you and your mega-brain should probably be working for NASA or something.

You want a taste of the high-flying, rock and roll lifestyle of the speedcuber. These steps are solved using only one algorithm each. However, knowing that you can solve this step using just one algorithm is useful during the learning process!

It can be quite difficult certainly so if you’ve only just started doing it upside down but with practice it will become very easy to isolate only the four edge pieces f2p need and formulate a basic plan to get them into a cross.

To start with, you o,l either have only one correct edge or none at all.

This guide takes you through every step of the CFOP speedcubing method.
