I am Bob Burton, Rubik's Cube Expert, and I am teaching
you how to solve a Rubik's Cube. Now that you know how to solve a
Rubik's cube, lets go through a full solve, and I will explain each
step as I go.
The first step is to solve the white cross. I first find the piece to
line up with the orange center of the Rubik's cube. Then I place that
piece up to the white with one move. I am now looking for more pieces
where I can line up with the center that it belongs with. First I found
green, I moved it up one step. I now found blue, lined it up with the
center, and put that one up to match the white. The red is actually in
place but backwards. So, I bring it down. It belongs here in between
the blue and the green. So, I move it over, so that I can place the red
edge in place and then line it back up.
Next, I am solving the white corners of the Rubik's cube. I am putting
the red, blue corner underneath where it belongs. Move the white side
away, match it, and up. I am looking for more Rubik's cube corners that
I can solve. The red, green one I see next, away, over and up. That
freed the orange, blue one, line it up, away, over and up. I actually
got one for free there, that was already in place.
I now turn the Rubik's cube upside down and I am looking for edges to
solve. First I see the red, blue edge, I face red, move it to the
right, take the corner it belongs with, up, away, down, face the other
side, put the block in front, up in place, and down. I look for another
edge. This time I find red, green. We move it to the left because green
is on the right, up, away and down. Look at the other face, put the
block in front of me, up, over, down. I then find the blue, orange
edge; face blue, orange is on the left, so I move to the right. The
corner it belongs with, up, away and down. Face orange, the block goes
in front, up, into place, and down. The last piece is the green,
orange. Its already in place, so I move it to left, up, over and down.
Again, face orange, block goes in front, up, over and down.
I have got the yellow cross for free. Chances are in the course of
solving the puzzle you do get a free step here and there. I am now
looking for Rubik's cube corners that I can rotate three of them and
keep the other one unrotated to have one solved at the end. If I try it
here, this one will be wrong, this one will be wrong, this one will be
right, and this one will stay wrong. So, this is the right place; up,
over, down, over, up, top twice, down. I then put the solved corner in
front left and do it again; up, over, down, over, up, top twice, down.
I am now putting one solved edge of the Rubik's cube in the back. In
fact, orange is already solved, and the other three are wrong; down
twice, left, up, left, down, right, down, right, down, left, down. I
will do it one more time; down, down, left, up, left, down, right,
down, right, down left, down. The edges are now solved, and I need to
solve the corners of the Rubik's cube.
I don't have any three piece blocks. So, I will just do the algorithm I
know; down, front, down, back twice, up, fix the front, down, back
twice, right twice. The solved block goes in the front left. Do it
again; down, front, down, back twice, up, fix the front down, back
twice, right twice. The Rubik's cube is now solved.
