Rubik's Cube is a mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture ErnQ Rubik. Originally called the "Magic Cube" by its inventor, this puzzle was renamed "Rubik's Cube" by Ideal Toys in 1980 [1] and also won the 1980 German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle. It is said to be the world's best-selling toy, with some 300,000,000 Rubik's Cubes and imitations sold worldwide. For more info, click here

Step 1: The Notations

Before you can build a rubik's cube, you first need to identify what is the parts. There are:

F-Front face
R-right face
U-upper face
L-left face
D-down or lower face
B-back face

All of them to be turned clockwise, except they have apostrophes after the letter, like F', you should turn the front face counter clockwise.and if you had U2, you should turn the upper face twice, regardless on the way of turning. if you are given R'DRD' , you should turn the right side counter clockwise, down side clockwise, right side clockwise, and down side counter. Well, do this ''algorithm''6 times on a cube in solve state, you'll make it solve again. Trust me.
I think you made a typo. The second algorithm should actually be U'L'ULUFU'F'
you can't realy tell some one how to solve a rubiks cube with out reversing what you have done
i seldom play Rubik's cube this time, since i lost my cube, my preferred method was the fridrich method, my official fastest time was 15.23 sec ,
hey wuzz up pinoy... how fast is ur time. and anong method ang ginagamit mo
My record for solving is 1:41. Here is a video of me solving it!<br/><div style="margin-left:15px;"> <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/lXDLS1ZPVw4"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/lXDLS1ZPVw4" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344" wmode="transparent"></embed></object></div><br/>
Just go to rubiks.com instead. These instructions are pretty bad.
find it easy to solve here <a rel="nofollow" href="http://youtube.com/watch?v=HsQIoPyfQzM">http://youtube.com/watch?v=HsQIoPyfQzM</a><br/>
The instruction here is sulk! Don't understand.
im so sorry.. i'll try to make it understandable sorry for the mess i made...
I keep screwing up the last step &gt;---&lt; whyyyyy D:<br/><br/>Which way is D, is it to turn the bottom row ----&gt; or &lt;---- while the cube is flat on the table.<br/>
umm..<br/>try to face the D face, then have it figure which way is the clockwise<br/><br/>in short term, it is<em><strong> ===&gt;...</strong></em><br/>ok?<br/>
nooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! man that is the method i use. i was going to post a instructable on it!!!!! darn! well what ever. anyway. not bad. the instructions could be better but with pictures i dont know what you could do to make the instructions easer. i do rember seeing a virtual rubix cube that you could edit and put into website with html. any way, +1.
tnx man..
yea. i will see if i can find that virtual cube.
yea yea.
hi kuya..
can I have a question? did you understand it? it is just a risk so our audience could understand it/./ if not.. i will post another one..
