1. Intro & Idea: how long will come, probably in tow. The introduction tutorial off help solve a Rubik's Cube and if toe a method which stands for first to layer missing Oh, in the beginning, Mr our star of solving their white cross We were serving the white corners, fairest in a step and for medal ages off the middle layer in another step. But in Safed will miss Aled. Our objective is toe have the corner here, the white and orange and the green is connected with the orange and the green edge just like this, and sold the corner and its edge in one simple step just like this. So I will show it to you one more time. Here's the corner is connected to his edge on they are solved in one simple step. So instead, off going off doing four for the four corners and therefore edges into separate steps in the F 12 method. We are trying to solve the corner and edge in one simple step. So I will just teach. You have to do that. Just follow With me is an ex 2. Setting up: how long will come. Everybody in this tutorial, we are going to set up our age and the corner. So what? What does set up mean? It means that we must have our corner and its edge in the upper layer in this upper layer. So in order through that, let's just start with white and orange and the green. It's already in the down layer because it's a corner, so we will just weigh. Want it to be? It's up earlier, So we were just grab it up, moved it away and grabs a side down back again. So now we have our corner in the upper layer. So this is a light orange and green corner. So we will start looking for the orange and the green edge, and it's here. It's in the middle air here, so we want it ends up earlier so we will just grab it up, move it away and grabs a side down back again. And then we have our corner and our age. Both are already in the upper layer, so now we can easily go to the next system. Thank you for watching and see in the next tutorial 3. Decoupling: along with everybody. In this tutorial, we will talk about the coupling. What is the coupling? As we said in the previous tutorials, that our objective is to have both the corner ends age in the upper layer. But the coupling is that after having them in the upper layer, we may face with something like this that the corner is already connected to his age. But they are wrongly position. So this is not how we want it have. We want them. So we have to decouple them or separate them. So how we do this, we would just grab the corner on the site and get the corner. Daryn moves edge away, get the corner up against. So now we have the corner and edge in the upper layer and separated and this is exactly what we want. So now we can easily go to the next step. But this is a case that let's assume that we have stole with all the three Perth and we have left with only one on solving pair and we have a couple in case just like this. So, in order to separate their connected, connected pair and connected periods so if we just If we try to grab the corner down just like we did before, just like this, and move the corner away on grabs according up again, If any fun, Anyone. If you notice that we have destroyed one solve it pairs that was already paired. So in order to avoid this So here are the three are the repairs are solving. So in order to avoid this, we must make sure that the side opposite to his irritation off the corner is a garbage or is something that already destroyed. We don't something we don't care so well. Just a trip. We will just grab the corner down So on the garbage, come up here and move their age away on grab the corner up against. So now we have separate our corner from the edge And we didn't destroy any off the solvent . There's so thank you for watching and see you in the next 4. Alignment 1st case: How long? Welcome everybody in the first case off the alignment and session processed. So alignment means that after having the corner here the white and Zarate and a za white and the blue and the red corner and there it ends a blue edge. So after having the corner and age in the upper face and they are separated, there is no decoupling case. So the alignment means that connecting them together and insertion means that we solve them in their position. So in order to do that, we just grab the corner in its position. And this is the first case that the white sticker off the corner is on the front or on a side is a right or left story, not front, but not on the top and the top. The upper stickers off the age and the corners are not the same color. So here, white on a side, and the upper sticker here is blue and the other sticker off the edge. Israel. So they are not the same color. So this is the first case that we have the white on a side and two opposite colors on the upper face. So in order to do that. We will just grabs the corner in its vertical position where it needs go between the white and red and the blue centers. So the edge First, let me tell you something that the edge has a probability of being in any of these four position in the upper layer. Right? So here is the corner. So if sage is here or here, it might be a decoupling case at we and we will have to solve it. So the two places for the edge is here or there. So it is the white on a side. So the opposite side off their white. So it's aside, The white is here. So the opposite side is here and this position where we want we we don't want their age to be. So the edge is already in the desert position, So we will just do this. Al Gore s more. Does this movement? We will just connect their age the corner with it's just like this and grabs them to be connected to was a blue center and rotate it back. And then we have our corner and our age solve it in one step, so Let's just do it again. We have that white sticker in front. So the opposite side through the white sticker is the position. We don't want their age, Toby. So his age is in the other position. So it is in the correct position. So we will just grab the corner in its vertical position and connect the corner toe The edge moves edge and corner to be connected to the center. Grabs the front side down again, and then we have our pair sold. This is the first position off the first case. The second position is having the corner. Here is the white Are is their stories. The white is on a side and the the upper two stickers are opposite color. So this is the first case. But here they're the white stick arrears on the right. So the opposite side. So the white is here, so we don't want we don't want our edge. Toby, here we go. We want it to be in this position. So we need to get this sticker in this position. So because if we do, our algorithm just like before, connect their corner to his edge. So now they are connecting in at the couple in case, and we don't want to do this. So in order to get this edge in this position, we would just grab it doing just like this moves their location. We want the edge, Toby, in the original position off the edge moves edge back again and then goods corner. It's very clear position where it needs to be and the edge will be in its right place because the white sticker is on the right and the position the opposite side off the white is here and edges not here. So we are good to go. So we will just do our previous aggressive connect the corner with age just like this grabs at connected pair Toby connected to that center or the center and grabbed the side back again. And then we have our pair solve it and our our connected pair off corner and age told with in Minister the last case off the first case off the first atomic is is that it assumes that we have solved all the three pairs and this is the last case. So why it is on a side, not on the top and the two colors off the edge and corners in the upper face are not the same thought. This is the first case. But we have a problem here that the white sticker is on front. So the opposite side was a white sticker is here and we don't want our edge. Toby here. We want to get this this edge to be here. But if we are trying to do just like before, we don't we won't age to be here. So if we grabbed these down on bring the position here and grab the edge up again We will destroy one connected pairs here and we don't want this to be done. So if so, in order to do that. So now our problems here in order to that will just make sure that their position we irritate the edge doing is the opposite side. It is a garbage is nothing to worry about. So here is our garbage. We will grab it behind the position. We will rotate our edge. So again, here is our corner. And here is our age. We want our age to be in this position, so we will just grab this edge down and grabs the desired position in the original position off our edge and grab our edge up again. And we didn't destroy any off the soul repairs and get it gets a corner. Its very composition moves that corner Toby connected with ej. Move the edge on the corner. Toby connected to the center, rotates a front side back again down. And then we have our corner and our edge Solve it in one step. This is the first case. Thank you for watching and see you in that extra time. 5. Alignment 2nd case: How long work everybody in the second case off the alignment and insertion process. So in this case, we will have also like the first case, the white on a side, but thereto the to upper stickers off the corner ends. Age are the same color just like this. Here is the white, green and orange corner with the orange sticker in the upper face and the orange and the green age with the orange sticker in the upper face. So having the white on our side, it doesn't matter in which side, but not on the top and having their our two colors off. The age and the center are the same. So this is the second case. So in order to solve this, we will just grab the corner just like this. Ferris boards a corn on its vertical position where it needs to grow. So between the white, orange and green center. So it is it here. It's vertical position. So we just rotate or grabs the white corner. They went in there first. We have here two sides. So here is the upper side, and here are the two sides, so we'll just rotate the corner Toby get down in the other color notes a white direction. So here is the white and the green. So the green direction we will retain, tow it the corner to get doing. And we just grab that edge, Toby here and grab our corner up against. So now it's connected again. We have our corner here, and we won't edge Toby here between the near to their green and orange stickers. So we'll just grab their corn are going in the other side. Note the Y direction just like this. Grab rotates upper face until we get the edge in its desire position and grabs the corner up again. There we have our age connected to its corner. So this is a logistical age piece, and this is the greenest sticker in the green is the one connected to the middle layer, so we just connect the green sticker tow. It's it's other color center, so here is the orange will just connected. They're green with the old in center, and that thes pair needs to be in this position. So between the green and the orange and the white center so just grabs his position. Up moves appear towards it grabs his position down again, and then we have our pair solve it and solve it in its original position where it needs to be. So this is the second case. Let's do it one more time. So here we have our white and orange and blue corner and the orange and the blue door and as a blue edge. So we just rotate their corner to get it down in the other side direction. So he resides and the blue. So we'll just sort it it down in the blue direction. And we need the edge Toby here to be connected to the orange and the blue stickers. So get the corner doing move the upper layer until we get our edge in its position in its desire position. Move our corner up again, and then we have our connected pair readyto be inserted so the edge is blue and the orange edge and the blue is sticker off the edge that connected to the middle layer. So will connect this sticker. Tow the other color center, so connect the blue toes or under center just like this. Now, with this connected pair needs to be inserted here between the white, the blues or centres. So we just grabs his position up. Three moves appear toe this position grabs his position down again and then we have our pair solve it in one step. So the third, the third position was a surge case that let's assume that just like before, we have stole with three pairs and we have left with only one on solving pair and we have the second case off alignment and in session process where the white on a side and the other two colors are the same. So we will get that corner in its this its vertical position where it needs to go. But if we try to get there the corner down in the other side, note the Y direction. So here's a green direction just like this and grab the corners stories age here and grab our corner up again. We will destroy one. Solve it pair that was already solve it. So in order to avoid this, we must make sure that opposite side towards a rotation here is a garbage. So we want to make sure that this this position or these two pieces are garbage and we have only one garbage here. So we were retains upper layer until we have the opposite side. To his reputation is a garbage just like this. So we grab our corner doing moves up earlier until we grab our age next toe the corner and get the corner up again. And now we have our connected pair, so it's ready to be inserted and ages orange and the green edge and the green is the one connected to the middle layer. So we just connected agreeing toe the other side center. So we would connect there green toe, the hour and center just like this. So is this pair needs to be here, so in this position, So we just grab up this position, moves appear towards it, gets a position down again, and then we have our pair connected and solve it in and insert the story in its position in one step. So this is the second case. Thank you for watching and see you in 6. 6 Alignment 3rd case: along with everybody in the third and the last case off the alignment and inspection process. So in the previous two cases, we were having the white sticker off the white corner on a side, either left or right side. But in this case, we will have the white corn, the white sticker off the corner, on the top layer just like this. And it doesn't matter There. The position off the edge here doesn't matter. It's position. So this is the easiest case ever in the three cases. So we're in order to solve this. We will not just put the corner its position know we will just grabs at the edge to be connected to its center just like this. The orange connected to the orange and it needs to be Go. It is the green needs to go here. No, we will just rotate this side in opposite direction, toe the other center. So just like this and retains upper layer until there the corner connected to his a pair just like this. And grab it, Abigail. So now we have our corner and our edge connected and ready to be inserted. So, in order to solve them will Could nick disease sticker tow the other color center just like this and grabs a position up, moves that bear towards the position and grabs a precision is a position down again and then we have our corner and edge solve it in one step, I said It is the easiest one off the three cases because there is no garbage here because let's assume that we have solved the three persons, the three pairs and we have left only this three spare on solve it. And it is 1/3 case because we have the white on the top, so we will just connect the beer toe. It's center, just like this orange connected to the orange, and we have the other side's other sticker off the edge is green, so we were irritate away from the green center just like this and rotates upper layer until the corner is connected to the edge and then grabs this up again So way are already dealing with the garbage stores. There is no garbage configuration here, so just grab it up again and we will have our pair connected. Just connected this sticker. Tow this color center just like this. So this prayer needs to be in this position. Just grabs his position up, move their peer towards it, grabs a position that one again and you will have your pair solve it in the in its original position. And there we can easily go to the next step. So now we have solved the 1st 2 layers so we can go to the next step or l which stands for Orient Last layer. And I will show you will show it out. Solve it to you in the next tutorial. Thank you. And she is an extra Torrey. 7. OLL 1: How long? Look, everybody in the oil L'Orient last layer tutorial in the bigger missiles. After finishing the 1st 2 layer, our objective is to have first. So the yellow crosses in all the euro faces solve it so But in the in the is advancing missile, we will have the yellow face just involved in one algorithm after solving their 1st 2 layers. So there would be a filing, the description, having all the permutations, any permutation you may have after finishing their first toe there it will be in the file and in front of it, it will be a certain aggressive. So there is a specific reason for every specific position you may find after after solving the first will. And this algorithm is to solve the euro faces in one time. So, for example, this is a key position, not online position, just like interpreters and Mr So we would holds that you have just like this, and we will do. Is this Al Gore s If our up our prime a prime prime. So now we solve it, or the yellow face in one aggressive, so in the line in the beginner missile, in order to solve this, we might have did toward three addresses. But in the advanced admitted We will just look in this position in the file and go. It's a specific aggressive. So just like this, if are trying our prime up Oh, are crime our crime? If prime and then we have our euro face solve it, Onda. We can easily go to the next step. But here is another case I the cross or the cross the aisle across case we were just to look for this position in the file and find it's a specific aggressive, so I will just do it quickly. So as much as I remember Onda, we have our you know, face told it in one step instead off three or four algorithms like in the beginner missile . So now we can easily go to the final step off solving the Rubik's Cube in the advanced missile. But let me first show you in the next tutorial a little trick toe. Reduce the number for off algorithms you have to remember. So instead off remembering all the aggressive insist in this file I will reuse them toe maybe 15 or 10. So just follows me. Thank you for watching and seeing 8. OLL 2: a long look. Everybody in the Orient Last layer part tutorial In this trailer, I will just show you a little trick or a simple move to reduce the number for greatness. You have to remember. So first, if you got after solving the 1st 2 layer adults so there are eight dot cases in the file. So just on the screen right now, So you have to remember all of them. And if you got after solving the 1st 2 layer adult case, then you will do its algorithms and solve it in one step instead. If you got if you remember from the beginning missiles that we have only three cases after finishing the 1st 2 layer dot or l A. Or like so, if you got dot you will remember all the adults cases and do it in one step. If you got ill or lying, just do the algorithms that toe that you that you use it in the beginning Mistletoe gets across here is a small ill just like this, and you got your cross. And here is in the air and you've got your cross here. Luckily, you got all this. Solve it so and after get after getting your cross, you can only remember their seven cross cases. So and then do your case Your specific case here. The cross case here is toe have toe these two unsolved corners in the front and just do this aggressive. Now you have used your your presence to be remembered in tow. Eight off the dots and seven off the cross off course. We we have sometimes in making the algorithm toe change from small ale or lying in tow across. But this is a much way better toe. Use the number aggressions, Toby, remember? So thank you for watching and see you in. 9. PLL: along Welcome Everybody in the pl l, which stands for the permit. Last layer tutorial on it is the last rate in solving the Rubik's Cube with advanced missile. So is it together miss it after having after having their yellow the yellow faced old Vittori after having they'll face solvent? First we were looking for something like this and put it in the back and to a certain algorithm and then see if the edges are rotating corner clockwise or anti clockwise. So we were doing about three or four prisoners in order to solve the whole cube, but in the advance admitted, we will just solve the cube in one algorithm after having the yellow face. So also, in the description of this video off this video, you will find the files that contain any permutations that you may have that you may have after solving their office. So here in this permutation, for example, I will just do it for you. We need to swept. Sorry, we need to swab, sees toe corners. So this corner is needed to go there and this corner needs to go there and thes two edges needed to be swept. So in order to do that in one agrees. We will search for this position in the firelight, which shows I will just show it, you know, And then through the algorithm. So the aggressive is our prime up up for our prime. If our up our prime prime, our crime crime are our prime and then we have our cube solve it in one step, so unlikely There is no way to reduce the number of these aggressive Toby. Remember? But I suggest if you are going to continue to use their blind missile, just don't remember these algorithms. Now with this PLL are blurs algorithms because there are already five alternative algorithm is in sublime missiles that you will have to remember on the they will be in the PLL of greatness. So there are five alternatives to them, not just the same. But you don't have to remember posts us to just remember their five aggressive off there off the blind. Miss it and you will have already five remembered in the pl algorithms. So this is end off the advance of missile. Thank you and see you in their blind 10. Be Samrt: How long Look, everybody in this tutorial, we will try to be smart in solving the Rubik's Cube with Ferris to layer or the advanced missile, so you know that we have first to set up our corner and edge in the upper layer. So let's just assume that we were solved there green and the orange Age and the green and orange white corner finished. So in order to solve it in the left will miss ID. We will have to get them both in the upper layer. But first we if we notice that the orange and the Green Ages already connected, so there is no need toe have both of them in the upper layer, then the couple's them because they are already decoupled. If I just give them up the Arctic couple so there is no need to the couple's ends in tow alignment and a light and insert them so we can just do it. Al grazing for the corner, Toby solving without missing with edge if you remember it from the beginning method in additional algorithms. So just like this and we sold it our corner in one move and our age is already sold it. So one more time. We have our age solved year, so we don't need toe toe set up our edge and corner in the upper layer. We can just solve the corner just like this and we have our corner and it's told with the same. If we have our corner, solve it and we have our edge in the upper layer. We don't need toe, get toe, have the corner setting up. Sit up in the upper layer just like this and having both of them in the upper layers in D cover isn't in alignment process and inspection process. We just We can just do this algorithm from the beginner. Mistletoe solves edge because the corner is already solve it, so just gets edge to its centre and it needs to go left. So if you remember the algorithm from that together missile, we can just do it on solve the edge in one piece instead off in one's one step instead, off having both of women's upper layers in a lines in and inserted them. So this is very fast way in solving the Rubik's Cube. Using the after will miss it is to be smart while solving not just following steps, Thank you and Syrians and X 11. Walk through: along with everybody. In this tutorial, I will walk through solving the Rubik's Cube using their 1st 2 l method. So the 1st 2 layer Mizutori so finished I have solved their white cross here because if you have reach it, if you have reached this message so you must be professional in solving their who I cross yourself. So I will just start solving there. Ah, the pair. So first I would start looking in the upper layer for an already corner and ages. Toby set up without sitting up. So here's a white, green and red and the green and red So they are most toe ready, Toby inserted, aligned and inserted. I will just grabs the corner to its vertical position between the white and the green and right centers. And here I have the light on all right. And the upper colors are opposite. So this is the first case and why it is on the right. So the edge must not be here and it is here. So we are going to go. We're good to go. So we just connect the corner toe edge and then connects. Appear to the center and grab them down. So I have solved the first player. So again start looking in the upper layer for appear that are already set up. So he will have the white, green and orange, and the green and orange edge are in the upper layer Separated. So we are ready to go. Just bring this corner in its vertical position where it needs to go. So the white on the right and the upper colors are not the same. So the first case and why it was on the right. So we don't wait. We don't want the edge to be here, so the edge is in its perfect position. So just connect their corner with EJ cousin, connect there here with the center and grabs the center down. So we have solved the second pair again. Search in the upper layer four, uh for ah, corner and edge. So here are two that was Two pieces are in the upper layer separated, So I will just grab the corner the white and green and red and blue in its vertical position where it needs to go and we have the white on a side so and the opposite two colors and the upper colors are opposite. So this is the first case and the white is on a side, so we don't want our h. Tobey here on it is here, so it's good to go. Just connect there, connected according to his age, then connected. Appear it was the center and grab the center down again. So now we have only one unsolved pair. Here's the white, orange and blue and orange and blue. It is white is on the right, also ends upper two colors are the same. So this is the second case. So we have to rotate the the corner. We have to get the corner in the down layer. But in their notes are not the white side, the other side direction. So we already just like this. But first making sure that since this site is a garbage so we'll just grab this garbage in opposite to the direction off the rotation just like this and grab it down First we need this edge. Toby here connected. So they're orange and blue stickers. So grab it down. Move the upper layer until we get the edging its desired position. Grab the corner up again, then we have our peer really to be inserted. First we have toe connect this. This is a sticker Tow this sticker centers just like this. And this pair needs to go to this position. Grabs his position up, move there, appear toe towards this position, Gets this position down again. And then we have the cross across case so way have seven cross cases. This one of them. I would just do the algorithms solved it now. Oh, sorry. I did something wrong, so I would do great. Sorry. So now I have I have done No l I Orient last layer. All the euro fees are solving. So I have left with ah Bloom with this cases, which is complete, complicated case. And forgive me, I don't remember. It's aggressive, but you may have fined 80 in the description, so
