How to solve a rubiks cube indepth and easy instructions.

Picture of how to solve a rubiks cube indepth and easy instructions.
ok to solve the rubiks cube you must first become accustomed to it take your cube hold it out in front of you.

Picture 2 is how the guide works ,pretty cool, huh!

you'll see something like picture 1.

now learn the lingo for your cube picture 2.
U. up as in the top.
B. back you don't need to know this for any movements.
L. the left side
R. the right side
F. the front side
D. the bottom side as in down.

If I have a ( ' ) mark after one letter in a sequence such as F U F' that means to turn that side that has the mark on it counterclockwise.

If I have a ( " ) mark after a letter such as U" D" L" R" B" F" that means to turn the side 180 degrees half a circle.

note: your rubik's cube might be slightly different then mine in the pictures all you have to do is think to yourself that the color I am using is the color you have to use for that.

Step 1: Step 1 the cross

Picture of step 1 the cross
step 1 pic 2.jpg
this is really easy.

1.All you have to do is select your color I chose green.

2.Find the center piece the one sided piece with only green on it.

3.Position that piece on tho bottom of the cube.

4.Now, look for one of the side corner pieces the these corners only have 2 sides it has to have one green side on it.

5.It will have another color on the other side I don't know that color is so I'll represent it with a ? mark.
You have to take ? and green and find the same colored center piece as the ? is. Try to get those 2 colors matched up like in picture 2 you can see the center blue and the corner green and blue are matched up and in place.

6.Once you get them matched up all you have to do is rotate that side until the greens come together on the bottom.

repeat steps 4 -6 until you have a cross.

I'm sorry I cant explain this better I know I had a very hard time with this step for a while but once I got it I can get this step done as fast as I can find the colors.

the rest will be a little easier.

please help! after i do one of the 4 corners, the other ones are spread all over the cube so there's no way i can do the move again. help please! so frustrating, almost there and then it goes totally wrong :(
the_burrito_master (author)  bertj3 years ago
After you do one just don't even look at the bottom of the cube only the top layer.
it will mess up the cube, to do the next corner jsut turn the top layer to the next one and do the movement you didn't use the first time, you just cannot use the same move 2 times.

If you use pic 1 first use pic 2 on another corner.

If you use pic 2 first use pic 1 on another corner.
oh, so it doesn't have to be another corner of the top layer? thanks, will try :)

hi! can u help me please im stuck on step 6. whenever i do a pattern it turns the corner in to the correct position but then it messes up the rest of the cube im not sure if its suppose to b like tht or not please help me! i tried a lot of times already >.<
promiser kisa74 years ago
 Yes it will mess up the cube. But once that top corner is in place rotate the top 90 degrees and repeat until all four BLUE corners are in place. Which then you should only need one or two obvious turns to finish it

A couple of years ago I could solve one in 5 minutes. Here's a Challenge try it blindfolded.
the_burrito_master (author)  J-Five6 years ago
I could never do it blind folded I don't know how people can realize exactly were every cubie will go?
hmm they looks it over and memorize the parts? oh and theres an easy way to have a blindfolded vid on youtube: blindfold yourself, get a solved cube, move it in random directions, then play the vid backwards.
yeah I know but that's lame and the reason that those people should be banned.
i have, i can usually solve the cube when i only look at it around 15 times.

nice, my record for the cube is 45 seconds.
the_burrito_master (author)  dsman1952766 years ago
sweet I just solved it today in 1 min 46 seconds. :) my average is about 00:02:20.
my average is a minute, haha! i win! just kidding.
the_burrito_master (author)  dsman1952766 years ago
my average just hit a valley the last weak I'm around my record.
My average is NEVER.
i have a simple solution to all rubik's cube related problems, a BIG hammer and there you go no more problem. ; ^ )
 I take it the you aren't the very patient type...
rubik's cubes make good firewood.
 you sure have a lot of wood inside a rubiks cube...
its not that im impatient its that i get frustrated easily

I believe there is an easier way to solve the last 4 corners. Place any correctly oriented cube in the far right corner of the top and follow the algorithm R' D' R D - Repeat until corner is oriented correctly - Rotate just the top 90 degrees - Repeat Once all cubes are oriented correctly then the top later just needs to be turned once more and cube solved. This works if all of the corners are in the right position but oriented the wrong way. It seems like your screwing up all of your hard work but if you follow the algorithm and continue to spin, it'll fall into place eventually
on step 3 why doesn't u ' f ' u f u r u ' r ' work on my cube
it works for me make sure you're doing it the right way.

i can solve mine around 1:30 or 2:00 flat i have only been doin it only 1 month
the_burrito_master (author)  cowboy_clay5 years ago
Nice hat's pretty good! I haven't been doing mine lately but my recorded record is 1:12 seconds!

I did it in just under 2 mins and won a frozen coke off my teacher :D, this has a little bit of missing information, i learnt how do solve my rubiks of you tube, look up "how to solve a 3 by 3 rubiks cube" and copy some information off there, it should have a weird geeky person. :D
the_burrito_master (author)  Gh{O}sT6 years ago
all the information is there except when sometimes there isn't a line or a right angle on top.
omegafox6 years ago
it look like it works but not for me i stink at this rubik cube thing
the_burrito_master (author)  omegafox6 years ago
this makes it east just try for one weak an hour a day if you cant do it than oh well.
yerjoking6 years ago
Okay I'm going to try this, and if this works for me then I'll let you know if this is the best/quickest/easiest.
the_burrito_master (author)  yerjoking6 years ago
how's it coming?
