It is also known as the Fridrich Method after its popularizer, Jessica Fridrich. In part due to Fridrich’s publication of the method on her website in , CFOP has . If you have already read our beginner’s solution guide, you will already know how to do this step. But here are a few tips on how to get faster at. Then that means you probably only know how to solve the Rubiks Cube the easy way. Get fast with that puzzle and learn it the faster and more.

How to Speedsolve the Rubik’s Cube

If you don’t, you may break other pairs that have been already built before. It is the first step to the full Fridrich method, used by speedcubers. Once you are at that level, you should be able to solve every cross in under 1. That is a great first goal and will help you to solve the Rubik’s cube under 20 seconds. Some other times, we build the pair and insert it at the same time.

Even if you decide not to learn all of them at first, do it progressively. To improve on the cross, my advice is to solve it blindfolded.

But I don’t recommend it because it is significantly slower than full PLL. You solve a cross on top. Once you can do any cross blindfolded, you will be able to focus on the first pair while solving the cross.


Take your time and try to anticipate. Why the CFOP in the title? This is the major difference between F2L and Layer by layer. Every second you do not rotate any face can be saved. You now know how to solve a Rubik’s cube with the fastest existing method. Now you have everything to find the best F2L algorithms using Fridrich method.

Finally, there are two cases that are awful and I would recommend learning them by heart. The algorithms you will find will make sense and therefore will methld easy to learn and to perform fast.

You should now decide whether you want to be colour neutral or, well, not metjod neutral. The corner firsts methods that were the best at the time did not allow such a fast vision.

More precisely, every time you solve a corner, just associate the corresponding edge and solve both at the same time. They were used the one after the other in the step 7 of the beginners method. In particular, every speedcuber ranked in the top 10 by 3×3 average at any point since has used a variant of CFOP. Once finished, a D2 tytorial aligns the cross.

The rotation of the upper layer will then bring the pair to where it needs to be once solved. There is no general rule on the best way to solve the cross though.


During pre-inspection, take more than 15 seconds. If you tuttorial RU2R’, you can turn this into case 3. In a last step, we will see how to orient both at the same time. It doesn’t corner twist as often nor does it lock up. This is probably the hardest part of the Fridrich method. Because if everything that is solved is in the back, then it is much easier to find what to solve next. And this needs to be done while inserting them at the correct place. Speedup your solving time without any effort.

You just need to count how many corners are not yellow on top. If you are interested in more information about solving the Rubik’s meghod blindfoldedhave a look at our guide.

This differs from case 2 only fridricb the orientation of the edge blue is up, not orange. This step 1 is the exact same of the step 1 of the beginners method.

Thankfully, you do not need to learn everything at once and each of these two steps can be separated in two sub-steps.

From these 3 cases, you should be able to deduce the entire solve.
