It is the key to solve the cube under 20 seconds or even 10 seconds if you really master the method. This method is named after its creator, Jessica Fridrich. He said: “I am using the Fridrich method.” I asked with a surprise in my voice: ” You actually memorized ALL algorithms?” His answer was: “No. The Fridrich method or the CFOP method (cross, F2L, OLL, PLL) is a fast method for solving the Rubik’s Cube created by Jessica Fridrich. It consists of four.

Because it was taken already, that’s why. There is a third tricky case. As everything changes when rotating the cube, all your inspection will be hard to transpose. Why don’t you give it a try – go to the timer pageset inspection time to 15 seconds and see if you can produce a solution to the cross entirely in your head.

This practise is called lookaheadand is vital if you want to achieve solve times under 20 seconds. Ftidrich instead of producing the cross by finding each white edge piece and solving them one by one, what you actually want to be doing is solving each piece at the same time in an efficient way.

Instead, the pieces that do get affected are ones you don’t care about, as they were occupying the space that you want to put the red-blue pair into. I would recommend that you keep jessicz the 2-look algorithms until you feel confident with most of this speedcubing guide. Y fricrich would have a full visibility on all the unsolved pairs. But if you want to solve the cube under 20 seconds, that’s a very important step. Why not see how well you can do with the timerand please do get in touch if you have anything jsssica like to say, or leave a comment below!


It helps you to focus on unsolved faces, instead of focusing on the white face. So flip the whole cube and start practicing with the cross on the bottom.

Much like the Sexy Move highlighted in red before, the sequence R’ F R F’ is a trigger called the Sledgehammer, and you’ll spot it lurking about in other places and algorithms. The two sections of the algorithm show the two steps in the same procedure as before – the first bracketed section shows the pairing of the two cubies, and the second section shows the pair being inserted correctly. It simply solves each piece relative to each otherand then places them in one go.

Every second you do not rotate any face can be saved.

The Fridrich method is only made up of 4 steps but also full of algorithm to learn. This can’t be solved as simply, but the idea is exactly the same. Because if everything that is solved is in the back, then algorighms is much easier to find what to solve next.

Try practising going from a scrambled cube to completed F2L very slowly, and making sure you have a continuous steady flow. Length moves will appear here Algorithm. Lightweight and comfortable in the hand. Once you are at that level, you should be able to solve every cross in under 1. You should do it on the bottom because then it’s easier to locate the other pieces. It is recommended that you should start learning using the beginner method first, then use the Fridrich method once you have become proficient at that.


With a bit of practice on all the cases, you should get closer to 10 seconds first two layers. Jessuca won the first and second rounds and Goljan won the last third round.

There jessuca, however, a few situations you might find yourself in where this procedure is not quite so obvious. In other languages Add links. Policies and guidelines Contact us. Make jjessica that the colours of the other stickers on the edges are in this order: Advanced solution for Rubik’s cube 3×3 2 Fridrich method step 1: I taught them in the page of the tips for solving the Rubik’s cube.

But now, the cross needs to be solved fast.

Good control of the cube. I would advice you to get one of those, best speed cubes on Amazon. But you could also place the white-red piece by doing this: This will allow you to focus on the next step, F2L while doing the cross. Menu 1 Fridrich method: You want to eliminate wasted time searching for pieces.
