Step 2: Staircase Pattern

R L'
Turn Your Cube and Repeat Until Staircase Pattern Shows Up

Step 3: Crosses Pattern

Go to staircase pattern. Make 2 staircases converge on the bottom right piece and 2 staircases converge on top left piece. Hold with side that is completely solved as front face and do staircase algorithm.

Step 4: Checkerboard Pattern

L2 R2 U2 D2 F2 B2
To Reverse it and get back to a solved cube just do the algorithm again.

Step 5: Center Switcher

L' R U D' F' B L' R

Step 6: Cube Within a Cube Within a Cube

This is my favorite.
U' L U' F' R2 B R F U B2 U B L' U' F U R F'

Did 5 and just got the flower pattern

An easier way to do the "crosses pattern" is to do the following algorithm: U F B' L2 U2 L2 F' B U2 L2 U

Center switch is U2 L2 R2 B2 for 2 sides.

You can also use slices for switching the centers, M S M' S'

Correction: its only R L if it is R L' it will make four crosses

I would have been more helped by an explanation of what the directions mean. I don't understand what R L ' is telling me to do.

Its telling you turn the right face clockwise and turn the left face counter clockwise

The 6th one is so F***ing immpossible. I have to use the crappiest solver ever to get my cube back to normal

Cube in a Cube in a Cube is wrong.

All B and L moves should be inverted

Ends like

U' L' U' F' R2 B' R F U B2 U B' L U' F U R F'

For center switcher, do horizontal center and vertical center back and forth. Doesn't matter which direction as long as you maintain that direction

I could only get the checker board one to work and I already knew how to do that
