i dont get it...i got the 3x2 on the sides correct...(after 1 correct face) and after that i dont realy get it already...

Justin said...

Thanks! Helped allot now i just have to memorize the algorithms....

Chris Brown said...

I get so close. I have done this method 3 times now from the start and when I get to the final moves (Ri Di R D) it leaves 4 cubes which are wrong.... I was getting to the end and I was smiling because I thought I was going to do it for the first time.... AHHHHH!!!! Will keep trying though

YES! THANK YOU! I finally was able to solve it!

Oh my gosh!!! thankyou ive been working at it all day and its finally helped me.

Thank you! Solving a rubix cube was on my list of things I wanted to do in my life :)

Paige said...

All of the ones on the tops have blue on them. What do I do?

drewpweiner said...

thnx, it helped at first and then u went too fast and i dont really understand

Imran said...

i get to the last point where all you have left to do is to Ri Di R D till it gets solved, but mine never gets solved..
its just completes the blue face and everything gets messed up...

mmm impressive guide =), after analyzing it for couple of times I am able to solve the cube in 2-3 minutes ^^ , great thanks to the author

I hope I describe this right.
I'm trying to get the second layer and I have it all except for one where the piece is in the right place but the yellow is on the orange side and the orange is on the yellow side.
Is there an algorithm to flip it around? because other moves I find to switch it around mess up the green.

thanks for the future help :)

this is frustrating

slow down next time. i cant keep up.

Awesome... It was a but comfusing at first and the algorithms took a while to memorise. now solving the thing is easy as. Thanx alot

Thanks so much
You are a huge help
keep up the great work.
I kept rewinding and pausing,After about 2 hours I finally solved it.

I recently got a Rubix touch cube for my birthday, and though your tutorial helps me solve it, there's a button on one side that does all the work for me! but that isn't the point of the puzzle is it...

okay so i have 2 sides without blue on the top... becaues the blue is below it, any algorithms 2 fix that?

Aastha said...

Thanks for the tutorials.. really was a great help.. although i did have a problem.. the same one as Chris Brown... finished all but the last peice while moving Ri Di R D screws it up... but trouble solved.. i did the 1st thing u ever taught.. Cheat!!! hahahaha.. although i din make it all the way through.. ia m still happy... yay! :D

Which algorithm do you use when there's only a dot in the middle? He didn't say anything about that.

Vicky Short said...

Thank you!! Thanks to your video and easy instructions I finally solved it.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! I KNOW ALL THE STEPS NOW!! IM SO GOING TO IMPRESS MY FRIENDS AT SCHOOL!! (:

Algorithm 6 doesn't work for me.

I have a blue cross on top, have 2 faces that line up, I put one in front, the other in my right hand, apply the algorithm, and BOOM! I'm left with what I started with (Even with the final Up, it still doesn't work.)

What do you do?

Anonymous said...

Never mind I held the cube the wrong way

Anonymous said...

this is great. I'm stuck on your part 2 at minute 3:16. You say to solve the normal way, but I don't know the the algorithm that you use just then. Please help!

Anonymous said...

let me start of by saying this is great. I'm stuck on part 2 at minute 3:16. I don't follow the algorithm that you perform solve.

Diamondhead said...

hey in the second layer (where we use 3. & 4. Algorithms) is messed. The red 5 blocks with the correct block but white side the the same to the other side. It is in correct position but in the correct place. What to do now?

thank u very much
i solved my first rubik's cube

Anonymous said...

What do you do if you dont have the L shape on top?

Anonymous said...

i was so exited at the end because i was about to solve it for the first time but then when i did the last algorithm it scewed every thing

Rupesh Dubey said...

Alas I was able to solve the Rubik's cube. Thanks for the excellent tutorial

Alex said...

THANKS!!! Just finished mine!!

Anonymous said...

ATTENTION PPL!!! On the step to finish the secound layer, If you cant line up any colors to do the algorithm just use blue blocks as a neutral one... It worked for me!!

Anonymous said...

i dont get it i cant complete make a more descriptive guide
please

Anonymous said...

thanks alot for a tip master rubix

I agree with Imran. When I get to the last one it just completes the top face and messes everything up.
