How to Beginner Solve the Rubik's Cube

You have a Rubik's Cube, maybe your mother gave it to you for your birthday, maybe you actually bought it for yourself, or maybe you just found that colorful puzzle cube in the gutter, but either way... you don't know how to solve it.

This step-by-step seven-part video tutorial will stop your frustration, it will cure your stubbornness, it will save your life by picking you up of the ground and showing you how to beginner solve the Rubik's Cube.

First, see how to solve the top cross. Then, move on to the notation of the Rubik's Cube, because you can't get any further unless you know it. Next up, you'll see how to solve the F2L (First Two Layers) with the algorithms:

  • U' F' U' F U R U R'
  • U R U R' U' F' U' F

Now, you're ready to solve the OLL (Orientation of the Last Layer) with the algorithms:

For the Bar (---):

  • F R U R' U' F'

For the L (|_ _):

  • F U R U' R' F'
  • R U R' U R U2 R'

The last step is here... the PLL (Permutation of the Last Layer). Use these algorithms to finish solving your Rubik's Cube like a beginner, so you can save your dignity and be a better man:

  • F' L F' R2 F L' F' R2 F2
  • R U' R U R U R U' R' U' R2
