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

I would also advice you to solve the cross on the bottom layer from the beginning. Views Read Edit View history.

Everyone has his own technique and his way of solving the cross. This is a lot less algorithms than the OLLs. April Learn how and when to remove this template message.

CFOP Method – Wikipedia

Fridrich method is also called CFOP. But we are going to use either the one or the other depending on the case. It is usually done starting with the white colored squares.


I would advice you to get one of those, best speed cubes on Amazon. Looking for the best blindfolded Rubik’s Cube solution? Fridrifh method describes solving the cube in a layer-by-layer fashion. In the Fridrich method, the last layer is solved differently from the beginners method. They will be presented with an example.

Determining which case to use is very easy. They were used the one after the other in the step 7 of the rbik method. Here is an example of the first one: Here is a photo of Jessica while practicing on the Rubik’s cube 3×3.

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

You will need to perform the following algorithm: Retrieved 15 June Solving the cross 3 Step 2: There is no general rule on the best way to solve the cross though. Look at gridrich Rubik’s cube and try to see the optimal solution for solving the cross. Please help improve this section by adding citations to reliable sources. After you’re finished, just doing a D move or D’ will align the cross with the faces.


Here there are two different cases. Of course, this will need a lot of practice. The goal with this step of Fridrich method is to solve the cube. According to Singmaster’s report on the world championship, Fridrich was then using a basic layer method, while Dutch competitor Guus Razoux Schultz had a primitive F2L system. Every PLL formula has a name based on a letter. There are, of course, many more cases than this, but most can be solved with the strategies above or can be reduced gridrich one of the above cases.

Or do you feel like you need a better cube?

Take your time and try to anticipate. This step was proposed by Hans Dockhorn and Anneke Treep. Before letting you play with your Rubik’s cube, I would still like to teach you a couple of tips.

Either the corners are symmetric: Or they are not symmetric: Jessica FridrichBinghamton University.
