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. Then that means you probably only know how to solve the Rubiks Cube the easy way. Get fast with that puzzle and learn it the faster and more.

Why the CFOP in the title? Fridrich method was invented by Jessica Fridrich of Czech Republic in the ‘s.

Here is an extract from Wiki: In part due to Fridrich’s publication of the method on her website inCFOP has been the most dominant 3×3 speedcubing method since aroundwith it and its variants used by the vast majority of the top speedcubers. In particular, every speedcuber ranked in ,ethod top 10 by 3×3 average at any point since has used a variant of CFOP.

All of the worlds best use a variant of this method, apart from selected few that uses Roux. This method is for people who can solve the rubik’s cube, hopefully using the beginner layer by layer method, and want to get faster and serious about speedcubing.


Cross – You solve a cross on bottom, like the layer by layer method. This could be done in less than 6 moves most of the time.

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube/CFOP

Your aim is to make all yellow sides face up. There are 57 algorithms. You permute move the pieces on the last layer to solve the entire cube. This is completely intuitive, and is probably the hardest part in this method. Having said that, you can still with a bit of practice, see the best cross solution in 15 seconds and execute it in well futorial 3 seconds.

In fact, sub-2 cross is not even that hard. All cross can be solved in 7 moves, and a big majority of them only need 6 moves. However, you will need to spend a decent amount of time practising this step and the best way to do it is to solve it mefhod. Take as long as you want to plan out your cross and solve it blindfolded.

You should now decide whether you want to be colour neutral or, well, not colour neutral.

This is explained further in the link below. If you’re still confused, take the picture to my left. This is fairly intuitive and easy so you should find all four pairs this way.

Now we solve both pieces at the same time. This is the major difference between Thtorial and Layer by layer. You can learn to do this intuitively, which is not as hard as it seems. Or you can use algorithms.


Don’t worry if you don’t want learn all that yet. This is what 2-look is for. You solve a cross on top. Then you do the corners.

This is highly recommended and you should learn this before you learn PLL. Using 2-look you can get sub easily so don’t feel you have to learn all the 57 algorithms yet. Well, there are 57 algorithms and that is quite a lot. dridrich

Do not feel you have to learn this straight away. Even experienced cubers don’t learn this for years. Just take your time. PLL Permutation fridrifh the Last Layer is where y ou permute move the pieces on the last layer to solve the entire cube. There are 21 algorithms. I highly recommend learning this before you learn full OLL. You can also do this in 2-Look. But I don’t recommend it because it is significantly slower than full PLL.
