Rubik's Cube (and beyond).

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. For easiest (absolute least memorization):
    http://www.its.caltech.edu/~leyanlo/cube_solution.pdf

    is very very good.

    if you want to get a bit more efficient/fast with not much more memorization go to:
    Beginner Solution to the Rubik's Cube

    I like her approach to last layer, but Leyan's approach has you flip the cube right after solving the cross, whereas Jasmine's has you flip the cube just for the last layer. Getting used to flipping the cube right after forming the cross is very important if you ever decide you want to go to a faster method

    IMHO the Petrus and Roux methods require a bit more "thinking" whereas the corners first (not reccomended for an easy solve IMHO), and the cross first methods require a tiny bit more memorization of algorithms.

  2. Sweet. I'll try this later. Reps to you, bro!

  3. No problem I'm now looking into yet other methods, one step of the roux method annoys the piss outta me... so I'm still searching

  4. Ok, I think I've found the best tutorial for someone if they are really serious about getting fast, or just "intuitive" on how to get the first two layers (F2L) done:

    yes you need to know how to do the last layer as well. I'm sticking to a 4-look last layer (4LLL) for now (orient edges, permute corners, orient corners, permute edges). Once I get down to about a minute or so I'll start refining my last layer

  5. I have refined my 4LL to do the following:
    Orient Edges
    Orient Corners
    Permute Corners
    Permute Edges

    I am using algorithms that I can use in both a 3-look and a 2-look last layer situation. If anyone is interested please let me know

  6. the v cube 11 looks insane!!!

  7. yes it does, it is going to be "simple" in theory, just will take a long long time to finish using a reduction (to 3x3x3) method i think.

  8. I've finally got the tutorial I want to write figured out in my head, it has (IMHO) the most optimal balance between memorization of fewest algorithms, ease of recognition, and speed capability. I'll work on getting it available for email/download for those who are interested.
