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. Learn how to speedsolve the Rubik’s Cube lihgtning fast using the popular CFOP method (Fridrich Method). Simple explanations with images and animations. 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.

The cross is done intuitively. Now insert the pair into its slot. You solve a cross on top. The method works on a layer-by-layer system, first solving a cross typically on the cfip, continuing to solve the first two layers F2Lorienting the last layer OLLand finally permuting the last layer PLL.

This is completely intuitive, and is probably the hardest part in this method. Just take your time. Fridrich’s website offered a vast wealth of information for those entering the sport, including a full description of CFOP with complete lists of algorithms.

You should do it on the bottom because then it’s easier to locate the other pieces. Lightweight and comfortable in the hand.


The corner firsts methods that were the best at the time did not allow such a fast vision. More methov, every time you solve a corner, just associate the corresponding edge and solve both at the same time.

The Fridrich method is only made up of 4 steps but also full of algorithm to learn. Now you have everything to find the best F2L algorithms using Fridrich method.

Once you are at that level, you should be able to solve every cross in under 1. The cases for this step can all be solved intuitively if you have enough experience. If you don’t, you may break other pairs that have been already built before. Every PLL formula has a name based on a letter.

They are the only ones and the best way to solve them is not really cfoo. Speedup your solving time without any effort. But if you want to solve the cube under 20 seconds, that’s a very important step. Archived from the original on 26 September If you can not do that with your Rubik’s cube, have a look at our guide to buy a Rubik’s cube.


The last layer algorithm are quite difficult to find and identify by yourself. This is a lot less algorithms than the OLLs. Or the two corners are next to each other and the yellow is on the side.

This is explained further in the link below.

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube/CFOP

But I don’t recommend it because it is significantly slower than full PLL. Before letting you play with your Rubik’s cube, I would still like to teach you a couple of tips. Although it requires you to memorise many up to 78 different algorithms, it’s one of the fastest speedcubing methods. The idea is very easy: From Wikibooks, open books for an open world. David Singmaster published a layer-based solution in which proposed the use of a cross.

First, we will see how to orient the edges and then the corners. At first, we will do it in two steps: To do this, I will still help you by showing you a few basic cases. She invented it at the end of the s.
