- Upper Layer – U
- Down layer – D
- Left layer – L
- Right Layer – R
- Layer towards you – F (face)
- Clockwise rotation – U, D, L, R, F
- Anti-clock wise rotation – UI, DI, RI, LI, FI.
“One important note is Opposite of Orange is always red, Opposite of blue is always Green and Opposite of yellow is always white”.
There are no rules just try to take one face and make a plus with other side same color.
Once the plus sign formed on the upper layer of the cube, the other side first layer middle cube and second layer middle cube color should be same.
Now the corners of the first layer has to be considered, check the corners and arrange it, so that first layer of 5 sides should form properly with same color.
There are two algorithm which needs to be considered for second Layer.
First turn the cube and keep the arranged part down and take messed up part as up.
Find out the color which is not related to that layer and arrange it to the proper side. And see whether it has to go right side or left side. If it has to be right side then use this algorithm,
U, R, UI, RI, UI, FI, U, F
If the cube has to go left side, then use the following algorithm,
UI, LI, U, L, U, F, UI, FI
Now repeat these two algorithms to get all the cubes in proper place for 2nd layer. Finally down and 2nd layer should be proper.
Now complicated layer has come, Concentrate and follow the steps.
Take your messed part of the cube, it is nothing but your upper layer what you are holding now.
See the upper layer has any combination like this ‘L’ or ‘—‘ or ‘+’ (This combination should consider the middle part of the upper layer)
If you have the first ‘L’ shape then you need to repeat the following algorithm two times or if ‘—‘ is already there, then repeat only once and if ‘+’ is already there, then no need to continue with this algorithm, go to next step.
F, R, U, RI, UI, FI
