Fridrich (CFOP) – Stage 1. July 4th by Chris Durnford. If you have already read our beginner’s solution guide, you will already know how to do this step. SOLVING (ORIENTING) THE TOP SIDE. Just like in the other solution guide, our goal here is to get the top side all yellow. To do this we orient. 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.

Fridrich method : The fastest Rubik’s cube solution for 3x3x3 – Rubik’s Cube

This page was last edited on 12 Septemberat You just need to count how many corners are not yellow on top. The learning can seem long and hard, but do not give up.

Here is an frirrich of the first one: Retrieved from ” https: To solve this, we are going to use the Y PLL, which is made up of the following: This page was last edited on 17 Decemberat With a bit of practice, fridriich left and right hands can solve cases equally as fast. But to correctly orient the corners, there are 7 different cases. This is probably the hardest part of the Fridrich method.

This means that corners need to be swap diagonally.

God’s algorithm Superflip Thistlethwaite’s algorithm Rubik’s Cube group. Most of the world fastest speedcubing athletes use the Fridrich method to solve the Rubik’s cube. This step 1 is the exact same of the step 1 of the beginners method. She says she came with the idea of this method because it allows very fast inspection during the resolution.


After you’re finished, just doing a D move or D’ will fridrjch the cross with the faces. To find the pattern on the corners, just focus on the side colors of the corners.

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube/CFOP

There are in total 21 PLLs which belong to the Fridrich method. It is not complicated and you will remember them forever. Or the two corners are next to each other and the yellows are not on the same side. Jessica Fridrich frivrich, Binghamton University.

The strategy here is to join a corner of the first layer with the edge that goes above it, then insert that pair. Although it requires you to memorise many up to 78 different algorithms, it’s one of the fastest speedcubing methods.

My system for solving Rubik’s cube

You already know the two formulas. There is no general rule on the best way to solve the cross though. Orienting the last layer means putting all the yellow stickers on top.

You should do it on the bottom because then it’s easier to rubk the other pieces. You may be tempted to solve this case with your right hand.

This step was not invented by Jessica Fridrich.

Or they are not symmetric: A new speedcuber just appears! It is the key to solve the cube under 20 seconds or even 10 seconds if you really master the method. Retrieved 15 June If it is too difficult for you, maybe you can try it later on A tip for training is to do the cross blindfolded. Articles needing additional references from April All articles needing additional references All articles with failed verification Articles with failed verification from November All articles with dead external links Articles with dead external links from November Articles with permanently dead external links.


The last layer is solved by first orienting and then permuting the last layer of the cube using a few sets of algorithms. Floppy Cube 1x3x3 Rubik’s Domino 2x3x3.

It is up to you to find your own style and solution. Megaminx Pyraminx Crystal Skewb Ultimate. If on one face the two corners have the same color, then they can be considered as solved and the other two will need to be permuted.

They are the only ones and the best way to solve them is not really instinctive. The Fridrich method is only made up of 4 steps but also full of algorithm to learn. More precisely, every time ftidrich solve a corner, just associate the corresponding edge and solve both at the same time.
