Are you ready to impress your friends and look like a genius? Using an improved method based off the one supplied by the Rubik's company, you'll soon be solving the cube in under 30 seconds!

The only material you need for this instructable is your Rubik's Cube- so let's go! NOTE: You can view this instructable here, or download the abridged version as a one page .pdf

Use the picture as a guide- ULF would mean turn the Upper layer clockwise, then the Left layer clockwise, then the Front layer clockwise, whereas UL'F would mean turn the Upper layer clockwise, then the Left layer counter-clockwise, and the Front layer clockwise.

Step 1: The Cross

Orient your cube with the white side on the top, and attempt to make a plus (+) sign with white pieces.

Now look at the edge pieces that make up your cross. Align all of them with the correct color of center piece that they touch. (This step is mostly intuitive, but might require flipping the F, R, L, or B layer twice to get the piece to B)
<p>i can solve it in 1:00 minute</p>
<p>i can solve in 1 min and 10 sec.</p>
<p>i'm a guy of 10 ,i started cubing 3 month ago and now am capable to solve the cube upto 48 seconds , the tutorial is good enough but it should add up oll,pll, i have collected many materials regarding cubes from other websites but not only them but my daily one hour practice made me solve it so fast !!!!! still thanks</p>
one time i had a rubix cube in my hand and then i closed my eyes for like 10 seconds and just twisted the rubix any which way and i solved it creepy huh!
I can solve in 1:42 sec, but i want to solve it in 1 minute. Please help how to do..
...i want 2 solved my rubik's cube in seconds only...please help how o do it...
Your best option for a somewhat intermediate method would be 2 look OLL, so, the first thing you would need to do is go to rubik's dot com and see the standard method, then go to www.blueknightcubing.com and look at the OLL sune algorithms, memorizing all of them. I can solve it in about 42 seconds now.
Finger tricks...I can solve it in 42 seconds.
Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention that I can solve a 10X10X10 rubiks cube in under an hour.
cool, easier than the other ones. but still hard.
Thanks :) I tried to keep it simple, but fast and efficient at the same time- so you can learn it as a first method, and use the same method to compete with :)
I can solve it in 42 seconds, using a different method...I can't do this one that fast, around 1:20.
A few years ago I could solve one in 4 to 5 minutes.
i can solve one in 3 minutes. i could do it faster but the cube locks up a lot
I can solve it in 42 seconds.
this year I can solve one in 50 seconds, my teacher bet i couldn't but i won and got free food!
i ould it faster with spray paint
1 min 50
My solve time is 3:20.31 minutes.
Quite Impressive. I believe I seen on the instructables.com on how to make blind man's Rubiks cube. Now that sounds like fun!!
LOL, free food? XD
I can solve it in 45 seconds, but I want to be an expert who can solve it in less than 30, like you said. I don't understand step 3, I need a visual for it. Please post a video.
i can do it in 49 seconds :D
Oh? Keep getting better. I've actually gotten even better and am hoping to get less than 40 seconds soon. My record is 42 seconds. I want to be able to solve it faster than the world record guy and I don't think that's really ever gonna happen.
<strong>.......'<em><strong>i solved my rubik's cube in 1 minute and 6 seconds......is it good enough...?<strong></strong></strong></em></strong><br/>
Ok, my cube has 3 of 4 edge pieces in place and all the white edge pieces. I put the yellow layer on U and find a white corner piece on U, but how am I supposed to align it with a mismatched edge piece? I'm a little confused from that point.
Ahh- good question :) Remember how you have 3 of the 4 edge pieces correctly placed? You want to find where the final edge piece WOULD go, and align the white corner piece above it. Does that make sense? If not, I'll try to explain it better, or post pics/video :)
Yes! I need you, eLeet to post a video and show us exactly how to do this, because I don't get it at all, I got stuck on step 3!
i can do it in a 1:20
<p>An easy way&nbsp;to solve&nbsp;one requires a can of spray paint.</p>
no, six cans
Or just spray paint it one color.
Yeah, That's what I meant.
