It is intended for those of you who can already solve the cube in a few minutes and want to get really fast. If you are a complete beginner, please, visit Jasmine’s . Discover the Fridrich method in detail. The fastest Rubik’s cube method to solve the 3×3. All the algorithms and formulas. Jessica Fridrich is a professor at Binghamton University, who specializes in data hiding The method describes solving the cube in a layer-by-layer fashion.

CFOP is heavily used and relied upon by many speedcubersincluding Rowe HesslerMats Valkand Feliks Zemdegs for its heavy reliance on algorithmspattern recognition and muscle memory ; as opposed to more intuitive methods such as the Roux or Petrus method.
It helps you to focus on unsolved faces, instead of focusing on the white face. In total, there are 57 OLLs. If we consider the first two layers as solved intuitively, there is in total 78 algorithms to learn to solve the last layer: Have a look at the Pochmann method.
It is now time to start practicing! To do this, I will still help you by showing you a few basic cases. Although the cases can be very different, some similar pattern often happen.
And this needs to be done while inserting them at the correct place. So there is no need of turning the faces as fast as possible. Solve the first two layers at once. The major innovation of CFOP over beginner methods is its use of F2L, which solves the first two layers simultaneously.
Although it requires you to memorise many up to 78 different algorithms, it’s one of the fastest speedcubing methods.
God’s algorithm Superflip Thistlethwaite’s algorithm Rubik’s Cube group. Floppy Cube 1x3x3 Rubik’s Domino 2x3x3. Simulating moves mentally will help frivrich for the next solves and you will become more and more familiar with efficient cross solving.
To do that we will need to flip the corners and the edges. Thankfully, you do not need to learn everything at once and each of these two steps can be separated in two sub-steps. The first layer corners and edges of the second layer are put into their correct positions simultaneously four pairs. Jessica FridrichBinghamton University. To find the pattern on the corners, just focus on the side colors of the corners.
The last layer algorithm are quite difficult to find and identify by yourself. Speedup your solving time without any effort. But we are going to use either the one or the other depending on the case. The aim is to perform the moves tridrich and to have a good transition fridricu each step. Megaminx Pyraminx Crystal Skewb Ultimate. The cross is done intuitively. In other languages Add links. Also remember that you have two hands and the left hand should fridricu only be used to hold the cube.
Just put the solved face in front of you and you will need to permute the three remaining edges. This is a lot less algorithms than the OLLs. Basic layer-by-layer methods were among the first to arise during the early s cube craze.
If it is too difficult for you, maybe you can try it later on The corner firsts methods that were the best at the time did not allow such a fast vision. She invented it at the end of the s. It is the key to solve the cube under 20 seconds or even 10 seconds if you really master the method. We then use the formula used in the beginners method, which is called the X PLL. If you are interested in more information about solving the Rubik’s cube blindfoldedhave a look at our guide.
I would advice you to get fridrch of those, best speed cubes ffridrich Amazon. Once you can do any cross blindfolded, you will be able to vube on the first pair while solving the cross. In the Fridrich method, the last layer is solved differently from the beginners method. They will be presented with an example. This step was not invented by Jessica Fridrich. So flip the whole cube and start practicing with the cross on the bottom.

Or the two corners are next to each other and the yellows are not on the same side. 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. Sometimes, it is easier to first build the pair and then insert it. This method was first developed in the early s combining innovations by a number of speed cubers.
Or the two corners are next to each other and the yellow is on the side. You now know how to solve a Rubik’s cube with the fastest existing method.

This is probably the hardest part of the Fridrich method. Memorizing them will save you time. Czech speedcuber Jessica Fridrich is generally credited for popularizing it by publishing it online in
