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 if you want to solve the cube under 20 seconds, that’s a very important step.

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube/CFOP

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. Here are the two main ways for inserting a pair, when the white of the corner is not located on top. For example, here are two ways of pairing the corner and edge pieces:. F2L can be a little difficult to get your head around.

We just need to solve the remaining edges and the cube will be solved. Solve the first two layers at once. Solving the firdrich 3 Step 2: If you are thinking “how the dickens is anyone supposed to do this in 4. This practise is called lookaheadand is vital friddich you want to achieve solve times under 20 seconds.


Why not see how well you can do with the timerand please do get in touch if you have anything you’d like to say, or leave a comment below! So flip the whole cube and start practicing with the cross on the bottom.

First, we will see how to orient the edges and then the corners. A tip for training is to do the cross blindfolded. If you don’t, you may break other pairs that have been already built before. Here’s a similar example:.

She says she came with the idea of this method because it allows very fast inspection during the resolution.

Or do you feel like you need a better cube? You want to eliminate wasted time searching for pieces. I would also advice you to solve the cross on the bottom layer from the beginning. Length moves will appear here Algorithm.

Jessica Fridrich works as a professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Binghamton University and specializes in digital watermarking and forensics. I will show you the orientation of the last layer in two steps. Everyone has his own technique and his way of solving the cross. However, the second algorithm is much faster to perform, as it is essentially the same few moves performed three messica. So instead, what we’re going to do, you and I, is cheat a little.


The way it works is to split up the steps into two smaller steps each. Once you have frisrich the two corners that are of the same color, the other two need to be permuted. It is recommended that you should start algorith,s using the beginner method first, then use the Fridrich method once you have become proficient at that.

They also can be performed very quickly. Looking for the best blindfolded Rubik’s Cube solution?

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube. This corner and edge are called a pair.

Just like with the happy red-green pieces before, sometimes you will come to an F2L situation that you’ve solved many times, but solve it in a different way because you want to set up the next F2L pair for easy solving.

Don’t forget to align the centers pieces of the cube! The aim is to perform the moves continuously and to have a good transition between each step.
