## Introduction: How to Solve the Rubiks Cube Faster (Part 1)

Saw my other instructable and want to know how to solve the Rubik's cube faster
this instructable will teach the first part of the Fridrich Method known as f2l witch stands for First 2 Layers.
The Fridrich Method was created by Jessica Fridrich to solve the Rubik's cube faster by solving the first two layers then the top.
if you don't already know how to solve the Rubik's cube then I highly suggest that you check out my instructable on how to solve a Rubik's cube

Some of you may be wondering why i wanted to learn to solve the Rubik's cube, well I am very big into math and I am Very good at memorizing things in fact I have an IQ of 120 but you don't need a high iq to learn how to solve the Rubik's cube. I learn the beginners method last Christmas when I was bored on Christmas break and wanted something to do. It only took me a week to learn to solve it, but it wasn't like I was doing it for a week straight 24 hours a day, in fact i probably spent an hour a day max.
But anyways About a month ago I was bored again and saw my Rubik's cube sitting on my Desk just begging me to solve it, so I did but it took me about 5 minutes because I haven't solved it in a long time, I rely wanted to be able to solve it in a minute or less so i did some Google searching and found a bunch of different  speed cubing methods. I found one that rely  stood out because it was a simple concept  but it was also effective. It took me about 2 weeks to learn the speed cubing method known as the  Fridrich Method and i can now solve the Rubik's cube in a minute. That is my story of learning how to solve the Rubik's cube.

## Step 1: Step 1

For step one you need to get the cross like in the beginners method  but don't get the corners yet

## Step 2: Step 2

now you need to get a bar with the color of the cross and  colors on the side like in the picture
i will show you the different cases to get the the bars in the next steps and how to solve those cases

## Step 3: Case #1

to get this into place
with the right side facing you
Ri, F, R, Fi

the opposite of this being
L, Fi, Li, F

## Step 4: Case #2

to get this into bar state with the white side facing you , you would do
U, U, Li, U,L
if the colors were switched you would do(with the green side facing you
U, R, Ui, Ri

## Step 5: Case #3

the algorithm for this case with the blue side facing you is
R, U, Ri

## Step 6: Case #4

the algorithm for this case with the green side facing you is
U, Li, Ui, L

## Step 7: Step 3

Now you need to solve the top layer  if you don't know how to do that  Check out my other Rubik's cube tutorial
this will make you slower at first but the more you practice the faster you will become

## Step 8: Finished

Now you can brag to your friends not only that you can solve the Rubik's cube but that you can solve it in less than a minute
