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).

How to Speedsolve the Rubik’s Cube

If you perform each algorithm as quickly as humanly possible, you don’t leave yourself much time to analyse the cube and isolate the next corner-edge pair you want to solve. There are lots of algorithms for doing this, but I like this one the best. Lol step is called CPLLas it aims to permute the corners – that is, move them to their correct positions like this:.

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube. First Two Layers In general this refers to the solving of the first two layers of the cube in one step by forming cross and then inserting corner edge pairs. This can’t be solved as simply, but the idea is exactly the same.

Archived from the original on 26 September Members Current visitors New profile posts Search profile posts. This idea of finding an empty space on the cube and pkl 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.


COLL and CLL both mean different things to other cubers, and sticking to convention makes things a lot easier for everyone involved. Solve the wooden ball puzzle How To: Why don’t you give it a try – go to the timer pageset inspection time to 15 seconds and see if you can produce a solution to the cross plk in your head. If you had no correct edges in your last layer, you can just use one of the above lpl anyway, like with the corners in the previous step.

The first algorithm either requires you to shift your hand position to twist the F face or start using some peculiar thumb movements. There are five such cases that you should learn the algorithmic solution for, and they’re all in this nice little table:.

This will correctly permute one of the edges, allowing you to solve the rest with one more use of the above algorithms.

Rather than relying on a big table of algorithms, F2L is best done intuitively. But just look at it. You can also order the table by trigger, which I think is much more conducive to memorisation.

I’ve been putting the cross at the top. Speedcubing Guide So you’ve gone through the beginner’s method a few times, and maybe you can solve the cube unaided every time.

PLL gets the same treatment, as we’ll be permuting the corners first and then the edges. That’s called 2-look PLL. This page was last edited on 17 Decemberat This page was last edited on 17 Decemberat 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.


And to add on to all of ;ll – I get the Olp method I think.

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

It takes practise, and the next little section is all about how to be better at F2L. Even though you can already solve this case using the beginner way, I would take the time to practise and learn this algorithm now. I’m at about 1: This might seem like a trivial difference to you, but each little pause adds up, and when you’re trying to really push down your solve time every second counts. I can’t ever see myself making ‘homemade’ algorithms.

It’s ok, no olp has to know. But you could also place the white-red piece by doing this: You will have to rely on them in practically every solve until you learn every other F22l and PLL algorithm, which will take you some time and effort. Have a go on your cube, and see if you can work out how to solve any of the pairs. I’m pretty sure that’s how I’ve been solving it. You aren’t satisfied with people standing around for 2 minutes while you solve it because that guy at the office didn’t believe you.
