Picture of How To Solve A Rubik's Cube!
This instructable will teach YOU how to solve a Rubik's cube!

I will also teach you algorithms that will enable you to make your cube "pretty", which will impress people!

Note: This is only ONE algorithm, although it is applicable to ANY "situation" that can be presented to you on the cube.

1 Rubik's Cube
1 Good Memory (if you want to impress people)
1 Sack Load of Patience

Subnote: This method took me 3 days to master, and a week to perfect, working on it about 4 hours a day. I can now solve a cube in under X3X X2.4X 1.37 minutes. (Look Below)

Step 1: Getting it all messed up! (use when necessary)

Picture of Getting it all messed up! (use when necessary)
Pretty much just scramble up the cube.

-Don't turn any one side more than twice in a row, then you're being inefficient.
-Don't turn two edge sides the same way, you could have just turned the middle section
-Don't turn only one or two faces, rotate the cube while scrambling to get a better scramble
-If you want the best scramble, scramble the middle rows and columns, that tends to make the solution take longer.

This cube also enhances the efficiency of the brain and aids in solving mathematics.

This is response to @laofmoonster. (It won't let me reply to you so I need to make a new post.) The solution guide that I have been using is different as well: http://www.rubikssolver.com/ -- check step 5 specifically.
If you are still having trouble go to this website and put in your cubes coordinates then follow along as the computer solves it.
This don't make sense you need to rethink your life.

Really nice guide, had some trouble with step 8,
But managed to fully solve the Rubik's cube with this:

this is actually not the perfect way solving cube .....the writer has just tried to modify the original and described in his own method ... once you leanr to solve it you will have your own million ways of solving it ...

Struggled after step 8 - but managed to finally get there with some additional help from a video on the official Rubik's website though!:


How some people do this in minutes is beyond me !

Try to shuffle it after you do step 6.. I did it for 2weeks 2hours a day and finally could solve the cube...

in the first picture, the arrows show you which algorithm you have to use. however, they are paired incorrectly.

I have a problem. all of my corners but two are in the correct spots facing the correct directions. these two are on non-consecutive corners. they are switched so that it looks like this:

what do i do?

why is the white square in the center of the blue? or did i mess up somewhere?

I'm not sure if you guys noticed, but step 5 is wrong

I've been following the steps, and on step 5, when turning to the right, one of the steps is wrong, its actually
D'R'DRDFD'F' instead of D'R'DRDFDF'

ive been working a while on the rubik's cube also and i have gotten my time down to 50sec.im working on the 20 step process and going to go for the world record.

 I solved it in 1Minute and 40 seconds
And scrambling go the fastet as u do Ri U 10 times
then twist the cube that way the cubes left is front
And do it again
 Thanks so much, I am finding this more helpful than ANY tut. so far! Ill let you know if I finish it!
