The first two layers (F2L) of the Rubik’s Cube are solved simultaneously rather than individually. In the Orient last layer (OLL); Permute last layer PLL 4. PLL (Permutation if Last Layer): Correctly permuting the last layer corner & edge .. the F2L, know the Full PLL and 2 look OLL, and finally go for the full OLL too. So I’m really new to all these terms. Can someone explain to me what the acronyms PLL / OLL / and F2l mean? (And any others that exist).

You should do it on the bottom because then it’s easier to locate the other pieces. The cases for this step can all be solved intuitively if you have enough experience. At this stage, a lot of people still find it quite difficult to intuitively manipulate the cube.

Remember when I said ‘wasting time is bad’?

But more algs to memorize? Much like the Sexy Move highlighted in red before, the sequence R’ F R F’ is a trigger called the Sledgehammer, and you’ll spot it lurking about in other places and algorithms.

I know, I know, I said that F2L should be solved intuitivelyand that you shouldn’t rely plk a big table of algorithms. First, you can just use the above algorithm anyway, which will make some headlights for you to solve as above. It’s easier to perform the quick trigger first and then add on the U’, as opposed to modifying a well-practised sequence. The corner piece is paired with the edge piece, and the pair is inserted into the right place. You can also order the table by trigger, which I think is much more conducive to memorisation.


This is for the same reason as the cross in step 1 – you need to be able to look at the cube and produce an efficient way of solving each F2L pair. I shall now try to explain some further concepts that you can use to improve your F2L. As you might well imagine, this means that full CFOP has a lot of algorithms in it – one for every situation you might encounter. Oll practice, your lookahead will improve to a point where you can perform every algorithm very quickly, but without losing the ability to know what you’re ppll next.

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube/CFOP

But what is life without a bit of a challenge every now and then. You needn’t go through the steps in order – you can learn and practise each bit independently, falling back on the beginner method as and when you need it. Although it requires you to memorise many up to 78 different algorithms, it’s one of the fastest speedcubing methods.

Of course, when you’re just sat at home on a lazy Sunday idling the afternoon away with a Rubik’s Cube you likely won’t be paying much attention to official Ooll competition rules, but it does give you something to aim for. Although the idea of slowing down in order to speed up may be counter-intuitive, a useful exercise is to practise F2L at an exaggeratedly slow speed. Imagine that you have started with the white cross, your last layer will be yellow.

What’s PLL / OLL / F2l ?

Swordsman Kirby Member Feb 8, The corner pieces should then be permuted correctly in relation to each other – but you might need to turn the top layer so that they are back in the right places. You want to be one of those people, who can just look at a cube, and ten seconds later boom, it’s done.


As mentioned above, the sections in this method don’t have to be learned sequentially. Just like with the happy red-green f2p before, sometimes you ol come to an F2L situation that you’ve solved many times, but solve it in a different way because you want to set up the next F2L pair for easy solving.

This leaves you with a very start-stop, stuttery solve as you rapidly perform an algorithm and then stop to find the next one. You must log in or register to reply here.

Instead, it is much better to perform the algorithms slightly more slowly in one continuous stream. Welcome to the Speedsolving.

As above, you might now need to turn the top layer to realign the corner pieces. This page was last edited on 17 Decemberat Both have the same effect, but a double layer turn is quicker. Maybe you’re even getting pretty good, and can consistently do it in under 2 minutes. So instead, what we’re going to do, you and I, is cheat a little.
