Part 1 of 4 Learn how to Solve a Rubik's Cube in this easy to follow step by step tutorial. Rubik's Cube solution


Now, you know and wondering how to solve in the entire Rubik’s cube something that has over 14 quadrillion possible combinations with all the pieces in here around and stuff. How to solve on just in 30 seconds? And through this video that all actually be explained, right! So, I guess we get started, I will give you a brief summary what you are about to see or what are you going to learn whichever. So what you are going to see is the first system that I used, I think it is a very good because it is a good side went to others. Because all the prompt steps that are regular on majestic fridrich system would have and that is about, about very much were about to learn except this one is a bit more primitive and if you get really fast out of it, like your hands started move fast and stuff on finger tricks which we will all be a little explain later. You can probably get this method that I am about to teach you down to about 40 seconds and that is if you move them pretty fast. So, let us get started! I am going to clean up my desk. I will scramble my cube, this one is already scrambled but here we go. Okay! So there we go, I keep scrambled. You may know it is a bit different in the lighting. Let us have to go back and we do this a little segment because I went to a little fast before but anyways, so your cube is scrambled now. So the first steps that we are going through are to get the cross on the side. You can really be split it in any side with the blue side or yellow side. Usually, whichever is easiest, I am going to pick the blue side because it is easy to see. Okay, solve for the cross. It should be a pretty intuitive step, there is no real algorithm or anything for that, like the real first two layers which are coming about to this and I just need to solve the best. So, I am going to pick the blue side. Now, this pieces right here the blue and silver, I want to get it over here. No, sorry! Over here! Now is to do that I, do not move it like that because it is flip that is wrong. So I want to bring this silver down to the silver. Like so! And so that can go up there. And so I have one piece placed and I mean to say that I have two pieces place but if you actually look at this, the thing about one doing the cross is, I have to match out the edge to the one below it. So the silver to silver, orange to the red, orange to the red does not work. This has to go over here and but actually the red is right here and it is already connected. So I can actually just bring this right up, do not do that or that you can just bring that right to that. It is connected right there! You really can bring it up. Okay, so now, the blue pieces right here, I wanted to get it right there. I could just move it right up. You usually do not have to disturb much on the top side but I want to get this which is facing toward me, up here and I cannot go over and do two turns on the top like that because it is wrong. So I put it back down there, like sure it was. So for this, we have to actually remove this out of the way briefly, just for a second, it will still be there pretty much but some of this up connecting the two colors in the blue and the orange, up and it is now with that. Now, you want to move the blue back to the top and there we go. Now, if you get something like, it is on the bottom, it is already connect or to the bottom or whatever. If it is on the bottom on the other side of that, you can usually just bring it around an unless you do not want to disturb the corners, you can use this put it up. If you do not want to disturb the corners, like these corners are actually whether suppose to go. You can bring those two down. Right, just bring this a middle section down and bring this around twice. So I match it up and then you can bring it back up and you see the cross and actually I got, like you know I got this corners. I hope that I explained it better. Okay! Now, I am continuing with the footage I took earlier today. Okay, so there we go, we have the cross and we have even a little corner here. Now the cross is a pretty basic step. If you mess up on it, you can probably be doing it, so that is the cross that that is the very first step. If you have that then great! Good job! After the next part, now normally in a just if you solve it there are some, you get the first two layers and the corners on the top of the same time but because this is a tutorial for a simple way, we are going to do it a bit different way. Right! So we want to place all the edges now, in all of these corners. So, we want to find the edges that going all this corners, it is just one-by-one. This one is already here and it is annoying to me because it is, sorry! Unfocused there! It is in the wrong spot, so I want to put this over here and this is the right way down, over, up, so we just get it out of there. The cross is still there! But the piece is not. So now this one on this side, we want to bring this piece up there, let us bring it down, over and up and there you go, you have a small corner right there. Now, to get on to the next corners, this one has been twisted a bit. We cannot twist it in the place I would not like to do that on anything because it disturbs the cross. We want to get it out of their first and then I just put it back in to the right way and go down, over, up, over and we have the same thing right here. It is just like on the other side up sets on the right side now. Sorry about the focusing thing! It is really annoying. Right! Anyways, so now, this pieces facing down completely opposites to the cross that we have on top are the kind of just side or face we are getting here. So I want to bring this over and so it is right under the piece where has to be. So it is right there, and up there! I am going to bring this down, twist the bottom twice. I guess you can twist it once to but twice is a better have it to get into because it will get it front and it does not matter which way you twisted if you twist it. It does going up right there! Twist it this way, right there! You just so long as you get it, facing towards you, so it is not facing down already and that is better. So you want to bring this, so same thing again. We are going to bring this over to the right side, down, over, okay, sorry about that. down over, I already did that in the last one, back up, so I have one more corner now and again, this one is facing on the bottom so we want to go over and bring it down, does not matter which way to twist this just only to twist it twice on the bottom. Bring it facing towards you and bring it back to that right side, down, over, up and have the entire phase. Match it up with the centers with the pieces below. It is a first step where actually, I guess there is a second so try to look at it. So anyways, now for the first two layers and this one, you are going to have to pivot much more closer attention because you have to learn notation for a cue and you do not have to but it will be easier to explain it if you do.
