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).

Using this algorithm is preferable than using the first algorithm twice, f2 it will be much faster to perform. Although the idea of slowing down in order to speed up may be counter-intuitive, a useful exercise is to practise F2L at an exaggeratedly slow speed.

There are lots of algorithms for doing this, but I like this one the best. You should do it on the bottom because then it’s easier to locate the other pieces. Now, when you’re solving the cube using the full CFOP method, the whole last layer is supposed plo be solved in two steps:.

In this situation, the first algorithm uses the empty space between the red and blue faces to move the red-blue edge piece so it can be easily paired and inserted. 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 entirely in p,l head.

It should be obvious to you that you can simply do F2 to correctly place the white-blue edge piece plll the bottom layer. I hope this helped.

This leaves you with a very start-stop, stuttery solve as you rapidly perform an algorithm and then stop to find the next one.

Remember when I said ‘wasting time is bad’? How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube. The cases for this step can all be solved intuitively if you have enough experience.

I’m not exceptionally intuitive when it comes to the cube. Not only will it help you speed up whenever you find yourself with a dot on the last layer, but when you see this algorithm again during proper 1-look OLL, you’ll feel all smug c2l you already know it.

That’s why there’s a big scary table ill algorithms lurking on the algorithms pagebut because we’re using our clever 2-look shortcut, you only need to know the following seven.

Go on, I’ll wait right here. This section does not cite any sources.

This can be done intuitively without learning algs but instead working it out for yourself or by memorising the 42 case algorithms. This step aims to permute the edge pieces, which by now you ppll probably worked out is also called EPLL.

Instead, it is much better to perform the algorithms slightly more slowly in one continuous stream. It’s quite an easy step, as it ool essentially the same as step 4 from the beginner guidewhich is to get a cross on the top face.


Both algorithms solve the F2L pair and use the same number of moves. According to Singmaster’s report on the world championship, Fridrich was then using a basic layer method, while Dutch competitor Guus Razoux Schultz f2 a primitive F2L system. And to add on to all of this – I get the Fridrich method I think. Orienting last layer means turning all the pieces of the last layer so yellow faces upwards.

Again, these algorithm are arranged in what I think is a sensible order but you are free to learn them however you please. It is recommended that you should start learning using the beginner method first, then use the Fridrich method once you have become proficient at that.

Plp 1 – The Cross This step is the same as the beginner method – forming a cross on the first layer ol, get this: This step is called CPLLas it aims to permute the corners – that is, move them to their correct plll like this:. It is the greatest oak that has the strongest roots, and you’ll grow your roots using the beginner’s guide.

Imagine that you have started with the white cross, your last layer will be yellow.
