Of the instructables on this site for solving a rubik's cube I found this one most easy to follow. Pictures of the moves instead of purely text descriptions is way easier to follow. Thanks for this!

BuffaloNickel (author)susanne3332008-10-28

Did you end up solving it?

susanne333 (author)BuffaloNickel2008-10-30

Yep! Three times in a row to make sure I can. The pictures of the 5 series of moves are the best thing, as long as you understand when to use each and how to choose which pieces to move where such that your moves are efficient. Now to just print them out and start doing it over and over so I can memorize them and impress friends by doing it straight from memory. Thanks!!

Sorry this is pretty suckish. I was 11 wen i made.

So you're 12. Also, there is a spell check button in the bottom left corner for a reason. It is you're friend.

Then you were twelve when you made it, or you just had another birthday. This was posted a year ago on sept.27, 2007.

mg0930mg (author)BuffaloNickel2008-10-18

Well do the math, it doesn't work. Plus, sure does not have an 'h' in it.

how if I just want to switch to corners, not three.?

I don't know how to do that... I wish I did tho...=[

Chinpokomon (author)2007-10-22

The animation is what makes this instructable. I'd love to see all the other patterns illustrated like this.

Goodhart (author)2007-10-11

If this one has become too easy, I suggest getting a Sudokube ! (click) LOL

BuffaloNickel (author)Goodhart2007-10-17

i've tried 1 and its WAY too hard 4 me

crapflinger (author)2007-10-01

...i usually just use the easy method....crack one of the corners off...then put it back together completed....usually as impressive to awed onlookers as doing it the legit way

BuffaloNickel (author)2007-09-29

between the time i said that and the time you commented i finished

ranaakamarth (author)2007-09-29

don't post the instructable until it is totally finished. there are already a lot of instructables for solving the cube layer by layer anyways.

BuffaloNickel (author)2007-09-29

This is just a first draft of it, so it will be improved

!Andrew_Modder! (author)2007-09-28

(o_O), i think there are rubix generators online, like you put the colors in, and it shows how to solve it, anyway nice instuctable for solving that cube, now my life can be complete :-P
