Fridrich (CFOP) – Stage 1. July 4th by Chris Durnford. If you have already read our beginner’s solution guide, you will already know how to do this step. SOLVING (ORIENTING) THE TOP SIDE. Just like in the other solution guide, our goal here is to get the top side all yellow. To do this we orient. 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.

Menu 1 Fridrich method: These techniques are very helpful. 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.

CFOP is heavily used and relied upon by many speedcubersincluding Rowe HesslerMats Valkand Feliks Zemdegs for its heavy reliance on algorithmspattern recognition and muscle memory ; as opposed to more intuitive methods such as the Roux or Petrus method.

They also can be performed very quickly. Speedup your solving time without any effort. It also avoids to flip the cube when the cross is finished, which will save time too. In total, there are 57 OLLs.

Floppy Cube 1x3x3 Rubik’s Domino 2x3x3. Views Read Edit View history. There are in total 21 PLLs which belong to the Fridrich method. You may be tempted to solve this case with your right hand.

CFOP Method – Wikipedia

This step was proposed by Hans Dockhorn and Anneke Treep. The aim is vridrich perform the moves continuously and to have a good transition between each step. Most of the time, what slows you down is your inspection and your thinking. Not turning the cube on this special case saves you about seconds. I would advice you to get one of those, best speed cubes on Amazon.


CFOP Method

Jessica Fridrich works as a professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Binghamton University and specializes in digital watermarking and forensics. Or the two corners are next to each other and the yellows are not on the same side.

It is possible that solving the cross on the rfidrich wastes time in the beginning but it will quickly make you improve. The first layer corners and edges of the second layer are put into their correct positions simultaneously four pairs. It is up to you to find your own style and solution. The strategy here is to join a corner of the first layer with the edge that goes above it, then insert that pair.

Vision and thinking should be much faster too. But now, the cross needs to be solved fast. OLL consists of 57 different algorithms. Solving the cross 3 Step 2: It is the first step to the full Fridrich method, used by speedcubers. Length moves will firdrich here. First we will turn the white corner so that it is not white on top anymore and then solve it with one of the formulas presented above.

This is probably the hardest part of the Fridrich method.

She is also known for documenting and popularizing the CFOP method sometimes referred to as the “Fridrich method”one of the most commonly used methods for speedsolving the Rubik’s Cubealso known as speedcubing. Even if you decide not to learn all of them at first, do it progressively. A tip for training is to do the cross blindfolded. Sometimes you can even take a minute to think rubbik how to solve the cross.


Either 2, 3 or 4 corners are incorrectly oriented. Archived from the original on But to correctly orient the corners, there are 7 different cases. Either one face is completely finished or none is.

I will show you the orientation of the last layer in two steps. It helps you to focus on unsolved faces, instead of focusing on the white face. If you do RU2R’, you can turn this into case 3. Everyone has his own technique and his way of solving the cross.

I would recommend you to start learning all of them only when you already know all the PLLs. The basic idea of the first 2 layers is to pair the edge and the corner.

It is of course quicker but also requires to learn a lot of formulas. To know it fully there are about 80 algorithms to learn and that is why I am going to first introduce an intermediary method.
