F2L Algorithms – All Four Slot Angles. Developed by Feliks Zemdegs and Andy Klise. Images sourced from Conrad Rider’s VisualCube. This algorithm sheet has some more algorithms for F2L. These algorithms/cases are picked because they are rotationless, short and easy to learn, but also. F2L Algorithms. Just algs. 42 of them. Learn them. Picture. U (R U’ R’). Picture. ( R U R’).

So instead of producing the cross by finding each white edge piece and solving them one by one, what you actually want to be doing is solving each piece at the same time in an efficient way.
Because all edges are now oriented it is possible to complete this stage using just R, U and L moves. Therefore, rotate the cube as little as possible. In this group, the corner is in the first layer and its sticker with the cross-color is on the F-face. Although not updated anymore, there are still some nice algs that you can find in there. They are there so you can see an optimal way to solve each case, but try to not rely on them for every single F2L case you encounter.
It can be done in one of two ways, depending on whether the block is being connected with a D-layer or mid-slice edge. The red-blue F2L pair is algodithms in all of these diagrams so the sticker that is hidden would be either red algorirhms blue, depending on which sticker is shown. However, many other sites do have so-called “algorithms” for this qll.
Detailed Hints for the First 2 Layers
The idea of F2L is to pair each of the four bottom layer corners with the corresponding edge piece and then insert them into the correct place. This means that doing the cross on the bottom is difficult, as they have come to rely on algorithms for situations that are suddenly upside-down. Both algorithms solve the F2L pair and use the same number of moves. I’m not even kidding.
If you perform each algorithm as quickly as humanly possible, you don’t leave yourself much time algorirhms analyse the cube and isolate the next corner-edge pair you want to solve. You will have to rely on them in practically every solve until you learn every other OLL and PLL algorithm, which will take you some time and effort.
First Two Layers (F2L) of Fridrich Speedcubing Method – Wiki
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 because you already know it. Ben’s pure OLL doc: A common system is using the Fridrich method first two layer approach.
Case 5 Corner algogithms Top, Edge in Middle.
Not the longest list, but definitely solid algs. This is a YouTube series where I cover cool algs that I like and use.
Fridrich (CFOP) Method
Now insert the pair into its slot. For most of these cases, I have broken the algorithms down into two stages: This is a thread on speedsolving where a user can request an alg and if someone has an alg for you, they will likely let you know about it.
You aren’t satisfied with people standing around for 2 minutes while you solve it because that guy at the office didn’t believe you.
Wiki tools Special pages. If you can intuitively solve every F2L situation you come across then jolly well done, but there are a few cases where there is just a better, faster, much less obvious algorithm to solve it.
This is one of the least intuitive cases for the F2L.
I shall now try to explain some further concepts that you can use to improve your F2L. These are the 41 distinct cases plus one solved for the placement of a corner and its matching edge from the F2L and the algorithms I use for them. Instead, it is much better to perform the algorithms slightly more slowly in one continuous stream. It takes practise, and the next little section is all about how to be better at F2L.
I assure you that the rabbit hole goes even deeper than that, and every situation actually has multiple algorithms for your learning pleasure.
The first algorithm does successfully pair the red-blue corner and edge pieces, but it also lifts out the blue-orange pair from its proper place, thereby undoing any hard work it took to put it there.
First Two Layersor F2L are normally the first two bottom layers of the 3x3x3 cubeor essentially all layers up until the last layer on larger cubes.
F2L First 2 Layers is a way of continuing after solving the cross. Speedcubing Guide So you’ve gone through the beginner’s method a few times, and maybe you can solve the cube unaided every time.
An intuitive way of thinking about this situation might produce something like the first algorithm, as it follows the usual principles of pairing the edge and corner piece and inserting them together.
For a printable page of these algorithms, visit my printable page. Good algs are scattered all over the internet, and often times it’s really hard to find these awesome algs. Where there is a strong preference for one hand, cube rotations such as z for left-hand blocks can sometimes make algorithm execution easier.
You want to be one of those people, who can just look at a cube, and ten seconds later boom, it’s done. Corner Correct, Edge Not Placed In these cases, the corner is already solved and only the edge needs to be placed. If you do RU2R’, you can turn this into case 3. This page took seconds to load!
Both have the same effect, but a double layer turn is quicker. Good resource if you’re looking for something very specific and can’t find it. A website with L4E pyra algs. The examples below show the four basic cases:.
Creating your own algs: Case 4 Corner on Bottom, Edge on Top. Step 1 – The Cross This step is the same as the beginner method – forming a cross on the first layer to get this: Just winter variation algs from the back.
While some of the algs are outdated, there’s images for all the cases which makes it easy to figure out which case you’re looking at.
