Step 1: Checkerboard
This trick is called the checkerboard. The end result is all the sides forming a cross.
Step 2: Step One : Checkerboard
The first thing you want to do is to orient your cube so that the white side is up and your facing the blue side
Step 3: Step Two : Checkerboard
the very first turn you make is know as R2. When using a Rubiks cube R means turn the right edge 90° clockwise. Since the number to is also displayed you have to turn the side twice. Now the face should be all blue with a green stripe on the right
Step 4: Step Three : Checkerboard
Make sure the blue and green side is still facing you and than preform the move 2L.The L means your turning the left side, just as you did to the right. Now the face should be green with a blue stripe down the middle.
Step 5: Step 4; Checkerboard
With the same side still facing you , move U2 and D2. The U represents the top layer and D represents the bottom layer. At this point you should see your first cross
Step 6: Step Five : Checkerboard
Here is the easy part. Turn your cube so that you are now facing the orange side with the horizontal red stripe. Repeat steps one and two (R2 and L2)
Step 7: Checkerboard | Finish
Perfect! If you follow the instructions your cube will have a different color cross on every side.
