First Two Layers, or F2L are normally the first two bottom layers of the 3x3x3 Youtube: How to get faster at the 3×3 Rubik’s cube – F2L – by Feliks Zemdegs. We have to learn two algorithms which are symmetric to each other. We call them Left and Right algorithms. Learn how to solve the Rubik’s Cube with this simple and easy to follow F2L ( First 2 Layers) is a way of continuing after solving the cross.

To this end, the vast majority of the algorithms on this page are comprised of many Rs and Us, g2l they are easy to perform sorry lefties. Therefore, rotate the cube as little as possible. First, you can just use the above algorithm anyway, which will make some headlights for you to solve as above.

F2L Algorithms Page

Both algorithms solve the F2L pair and use the same number of moves. If it is on the left, the spot where that pair needs to go is in FR. Then, once you know those few algorithms, you can begin to learn the rest of the last layer algorithms while always being able to fall back on the ones you know. Rubi is solving the first two layers by intuition instead of algorithms.

F2L Algorithms – CFOP SpeedSolving F2L #41 Cases

If you are thinking “how the dickens is anyone supposed to do this in 4. Contents [ show ].

Step 1 – The Cross This step is the same as the beginner method – forming a cross on the first layer to get this: Well go ahead, but don’t blame me when you’re trying to make friends with other speedcubers and you have to listen to “Wait, do you mean COLL as in orienting and permuting last layer corners while preserving edge orientation, or just orienting the corners and preserving edge orientation but ignoring all last layer permutation?


Try to also remember that you probably have two hands. These steps are solved using only one algorithm each. Start using the algorithms page to learn each of the PLL algorithms.

How To Solve The Second Layer Of The Rubik’s Cube – F2L

However, many other sites do have so-called “algorithms” for this step. While this is also an excellent life tip, some situations are just better handled on a specific side of the cube.

I sincerely hope that you have enjoyed this introduction to speedcubing, a hobby that I and many others enjoy very much. Note that only the first method there will work. SpeedsolvingRubuk Previous state: You now know the basic ideas of F2L. Wasting time is bad. Cross cube state Next state: Now, there are two possible situations; the white cornerpiece can either be on the left or on the right.

Rbuik not even kidding. Compare these two algorithms:. But what is life without a bit of a challenge every dubik and then. This doesn’t disturb any of the other F2L spaces, but you can see that the red-green pieces are looking rather unsolved and unhappy. Instead, the pieces that do get affected are ones you don’t care about, as they were occupying the space that you want to put the red-blue pair into. As above, you might now need to turn the top layer to realign the corner pieces.


But now you’re hooked. If you still have problems with F2L, which I can imagine, please leave a comment below. Look at the top colour of the edgepiece, and get the edgepiece above the corresponding centerpiece, as shown in the picture. Here’s a similar rublk.

COLL and CLL both mean different things to other cubers, and sticking to convention makes things a lot easier for everyone involved. I know, I know, I said that F2L should be solved intuitivelyand that you shouldn’t rely on a big table of algorithms.

There are two ways to execute F2L, fubik and algorithmic. At last, turn the cornerpiece back. 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. Speedsolvers mainly use intuitive F2L, since you do not have to learn any algorithms at all.

Fridrich (CFOP) Method

For each case, there will be a “method” how to convert it to one of the basic cases and an “algorithm” in with a bullet in front of it. F2L First 2 Layers is a way of continuing after solving the cross. All of that being said, I can give you some situations to hopefully make the process easier.
