AuthorThe first time i tried this it took me 2 to 3 hours

After tow days i did it in 7 min

This is insane I am so happy thanks

## Tristan Cook

AuthorTook 5 hours I got it!

## Edoran

AuthorStep1: hold the cube, Step2: Learn all of these nomenclatures used by people that do this for a living and now perform all of these operations F'FfFFRuUUrr twice in rapid succesion. There the cube should now be solved.

## Bob Jong Jong

Authorthis is terrible it is so hard mate

## Tyler John

AuthorDefinitely takes more than an hour first try idc..

## Vikram Rajasekaran

AuthorHere are all the algorithms mentioned in the video all with the yellow side on top:

Step 5:

Form the yellow cross: F-U-R-U'-R'-F'

Step 6:

Solve the yellow side: R-U-R'-U-R-U2-R'

Step 7:

Solve the corners of the top layer: L'-U-R-U'-L-U-R'-R-U-R'-U-R-U2-R' (Note: The end of this algorithm is the same as step 6's algorithm)

Solve the edges of the top layer:

CW: F2-U-R'-L-F2-L'-R-U-F2

CCW: F2-U'-R'-L-F2-L'-R-U'-F2

## Arshdeep Singh

AuthorI solved it on step 7 how?

## Tejal ganig

AuthorTy very much I finally learnt how to solve a Rubik’s cube

👍🏾

## Swedish Gamer

AuthorThis helped very much thank you!

## SSSnipahh Cat

AuthorIm stuck in step 4😩😑

## Heidi

Authori did it !! took me 8 hours thought

## Jeremiah Riel Key

AuthorYou help me

## Shane Chris

AuthorThank you for making me solve this cube I thought that I will not be able to do this!!!!!!!!

## Emma Gymnast

Authori spent A WHOLE HOUR doing this for me to make a tiny mistake at the end and have to restart ALL AGAIN

## Emma Gymnast

Authorhe said if the corners don’t match up u might need to do the step one last time- i’ve done it 4 times and the STILL DONT MATCH UHHH

## bornetices

AuthorI just got 4 corners when he said u wont have more than 3 lol

## Brandon Batts

AuthorAfter 4 days I solved it using this tutorial. Probably the easiest to understand after getting past the formulas but thank you!! I’m now smarter than everyone else 🤣🤣

Authori just realized that on the seventh step my cube was the same

## Sam78

AuthorWe messed up the cube at the fur…

## RawDiscovery

Authorwho’s a speed cuber?

## peem sf

AuthorTy for the tutorial

## Patient Red

AuthorKnow what? I had significant difficulty trying to relate to the first parts of the explanation, later though I found most of my issue was letting myself be okay with using slow-mo and backing up the video a lot. Patience with yoself if you are having a hard time like I was. As a special treat, I learned that with the video at half speed — he sounds hilariously high.

Edit: this video really was fantastic for me after I let myself accept having no idea what I was doing. Especially at half speed xD

## Capa

AuthorYou'll have either 0, 1 or 2. Me

AuthorThanks!!!!!!

This video helped me to solve my first cube

Thanks a lot¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

## Ernests Rijnieks

AuthorAt the solving secind layer my top matched the top

## Haya Alseiari

AuthorOMG THANK YOUUUU I JUST SOLVED A RUBIX CUBEEEEE

## Phoebe Snell

AuthorThank you so much! I just solved my Rubik's cube for the first time after

hoursof puzzling over it. The algorithms helped me a ton!
