Take a flat head screw driver and pop out the middle square on the 45 degree angle. In this case it is the yellow and green ones.

Step 3: Take the Pieces Off

Take all of the pieces which should now be loose off. You should be left with something like the photo below.

Step 4: Sort the Colors

Sort all the borders and start with one side working away from the floor or working surface. Make sure your pieces are facing the correct sides otherwise you will be in the same problem as before. Before heading to the next section make sure everything is in the proper place.

yes my preferred way of solving the CUBE. But even better, I had a friend who always solved it and showed off to me constantly, so when i was in his room I found his cube and broke it apart like this, then I reassembled it with one of the corners rotated so that it could never be solved. I then mixed it up and left it on his shelf, he never could solve it after that.... mmmm

i love it how completely devious. i was bored and had nothing better to so i threw this instructable together

well, it's a nice one and frankly I always thought that it was the really clever / lateral thinking way of solving the cube, any monkey can learn the moves, taking it apart and reassembling it, that's cute!

We just used to peel the stickers off and re-stick them!

Since everything is made in china things are cheaply made so peeling off the stickers may not work.

Does it really matter? Who is going to know the picture illustrates the whole thing.
