F2L Algorithms (First 2 Layers). Developed by Feliks Zemdegs and Andy Klise. Images sourced from Conrad Rider’s VisualCube. This algorithm sheet has some more algorithms for F2L. These algorithms/cases are picked because they are rotationless, short and easy to learn, but also. F2L Algorithms – All Four Slot Angles. Developed by Feliks Zemdegs and Andy Klise.

Porkynator created a fantastic guide to lots of the key FMC techniques. I find that once you’ve understood the concept of F2L, then learning all these algorithms will be really useful.
For F2L, I tend to not use any algorithms with B in them. Well here is where your journey begins. Post them in the Daily Discussion Thread! Being able to recognise it and perform it without thinking will make the task of learning lots of algorithms much, much easier. The important part of F2L is being able to solve each of the pairs without affecting any of the other previously solved pairs. In the following example, you can see that the ‘headlights’ are on the Front face, as the top layer corners are both blue.
Now that you know the beginner method, you can begin to introduce the concepts in this guide into your solves. To start with, you will either have only one correct edge or none at all.
F2L – Algs – UKCubeStore
Most of the best 2×2 algs are on this website. Follow the sitewide rules, and abide by reddiquette. Policies and guidelines Contact us. World Cube Association Regulation A3a1 states that a competitor has up to 15 seconds of inspection time before attempting a solve, and you would want to be spending this time mentally formulating a complete solution to the cross which you could then execute very quickly at the start of your solve.
I’m going to show you a slightly different way of approaching the last layer, so that you only need to know a few algorithms xlgorithms. They are for after you get the basics down so don’t read these until after you do.
To do this, you need to look for ‘headlights’ – a face where both top layer corners are the same colour presumably named due to their resemblance to the headlights of a car.
This is a YouTube series where I cover cool algs that I like and use. Speedcubing Guide So you’ve gone through the beginner’s method a few times, and maybe you can solve the cube unaided every time. For people who love any sort of geometric puzzles, including but not limited to: Kim Jokinen’s 1 flip tutorial: It’s easier to perform the quick trigger first and then add on the U’, as opposed to modifying a well-practised sequence.
It’s beautiful, and no horrid cube rotations. Which Cubes To Buy?
Cross cube state Next state: I’m not even kidding. The second option is this fl2. Being able to identify it easily will make algorithms that use it easier to learn, so whenever it is used in this guide it will be highlighted in red. You can also order the table by trigger, which I think is much more conducive to memorisation.
How To Solve The Second Layer Of The Rubik’s Cube (F2L)
Cube explorer has been around for ages for creating algorithms. In this situation, the first algorithm uses the empty space between the red and blue faces to move the red-blue edge piece so it can be easily paired and inserted.
Even if you understand the basic ideas above, it isn’t always obvious how best to proceed. Turning the whole cube in your hands is a slow waste of time. What I meant to ask is, how can you do the B and B’ move comfortably? Diagram Algorithm Comments 24 FR: L U L’ Here, the corner and edge are “opposite” each other and can be placed with a simple trigger.
At this pace, you remove the temptation to focus only on the pieces that you are currently applying an algorithm to, and you can easily be looking at the rest of the cube to find the next F2L pair. If you clicked the link to the algorithm page before, you’ll have seen that the list is indeed quite long. FL Corners Step 3: Something else to bear in mind is that you don’t always need to put the edge pieces in the correct place straight away. While some of the algs are outdated, there’s images for all the cases which makes it easy to figure out which case you’re looking at.
In this case, you remove the edge from the second layer such that it is opposite the corner, AUF, and place the pair.
