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. Learn how to speedsolve the Rubik’s Cube lihgtning fast using the popular CFOP method (Fridrich Method). Simple explanations with images and animations. 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.

First we will turn the white corner so that it is not white on top anymore and then solve it with one of the formulas presented above. You solve a cross on top. Length moves will appear here. 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.

Here are the two main ways for inserting a pair, when the white of the corner is not located on top. If you can not do that with your Rubik’s cube, have a look at our guide to buy a Rubik’s cube. With a bit of practice on all the cases, you should get closer to 10 seconds first two layers.

How to Speedsolve the Rubik’s Cube

Views Read Edit View history. From these 3 cases, you should be able to deduce the entire solve. Most of the 41 cases have reasonable intuitive solutions.

Every time you solve a pair, you are actually using the empty slot of that same pair. Do not under-estimate the progress you can make by just looking at the cube and trying to figure out the cross.


Each slot is filled by inserting a corner and its corresponding edge simultaneously. Once finished, a D2 move aligns the cross. Every second you do not rotate any face can be saved. Vision and thinking should be much faster too. The constituent techniques and their original proposers are as follows:. If you are interested in more information about solving the Rubik’s cube blindfoldedhave a look at our guide. This case will be solved in two steps.

You should do it on the bottom because then it’s easier to locate the other pieces. Good control of the cube. A new speedcuber just appears! It definitely turns much better than my other speed cubes.

Make a cross on one side by solving all edges of a given face. Or you can use algorithms. God’s algorithm Superflip Thistlethwaite’s algorithm Rubik’s Cube group. There is a third tricky case. Then then ones with two corners to orient and finished with the last two.

It is the key to solve the cube under 20 seconds or even fdidrich seconds if you really master the method. This will make you save huge amounts of time. So flip the whole cube and start practicing with the cross on the bottom. However, note that this is a few seconds slower.

Either 2, 3 or 4 corners are incorrectly oriented. The completion of this step leaves one with just the last layer, typically placed on top. Fill in the four slots between the cross pieces, one slot at a time. And this needs to be done while inserting them at the correct place. April Learn how and when to remove this template message. Secondly, try to minimize the number of times you flip the whole cube during the resolution. Take as long as you want to plan out your cross and solve it blindfolded.


Or the two corners are next to each other and the yellow is on the side. Either the corners are symmetric: Archived from the original on Most of the world fastest speedcubing athletes use the Fridrich method to solve the Rubik’s cube. To join the pair, UR will move the edge into a position where the corner can attach to it properly, then U will join the pair and R’ will put it on the top.

Megaminx Pyraminx Crystal Skewb Ultimate. It is possible that solving the cross on the bottom wastes time in the beginning but it will quickly make you improve. If you have 0 corner to orient then you can directly move on to the next step. Have a look at the following case:. Archived from the original on 26 September Once you have located the two corners that are of the same color, the other two need to be permuted.

The aim is to perform the moves continuously and to have a good transition between each step. You should now decide whether you want to be colour neutral or, well, not colour neutral.

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. Why the CFOP in the title?
