Jessica Fridrich Distinguished Professor , Fax: () URL: E-MAIL: fridrich (AT) binghamton. edu. Richard can solve the cube blindfolded and willingly shares with us his method. I met Richard in April and he showed me his incredible skills in person. The Fridrich method or the CFOP method (cross, F2L, OLL, PLL) is a fast method for solving the Rubik’s Cube created by Jessica Fridrich. It consists of four.

Secondly, try to minimize the number of jssica you flip the whole cube during the resolution. Solve the first two layers at once. With a bit of practice, you left and right hands can solve cases equally as fast.

If you have 0 corner to orient then you can directly move on to the next step. Computer Engineering Professor Years Active: Every cross can be solved in under 10 moves. The second round time of Either one face is completely finished or none is. But to fridricj orient the corners, there are 7 different cases.

At first, we will do it in two steps: Method inventors Speedcubers Cubers. The last layer is solved by first orienting and then permuting the last layer of the cube using a few sets of algorithms.

The national championship took place in May by which time Fridrich was averaging about 25 seconds.

Here is what it looks like with the animations:. This is the fastest and the easiest Rubik’s cube solving method.

This step 1 is the exact same of the step 1 of the beginners method. Solving the corners first and then the edges.

How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube/CFOP

Every algorithm will save you time. Here there are two different cases. We are now going to have a look at the Fridrich method. Vision and thinking should be much jdssica too. To know it fully there are about 80 algorithms to learn and that is why I am going to first introduce an intermediary method. To join the pair, UR will move the edge into a position where the corner can attach to it properly, then U will join the pair and R’ will put it on the top.

But we are going to use either the jessicw or the other depending on the case. If you do RU2R’, you can turn this into case 3.

To do this, I will still help you by showing you a few basic cases. Fridgich aim is to perform meghod moves continuously and to have a good transition between each step. Rubik signed the notebook at the Rubik’s Cube World Championship in Budapest inan event where Fridrich finished tenth.

The cases for this step can all be solved intuitively if you have enough experience. The most efficient here is frierich learn them by heart.


She is also known for documenting and popularizing the CFOP method sometimes referred to as the “Fridrich method”one of the most commonly used methods for speedsolving the Rubik’s Cubealso known as speedcubing. If you can not do that with your Rubik’s cube, have a look at our guide to buy a Rubik’s cube.

Jessica Fridrich is a professor at Binghamton Universitywho specializes in data jesscia applications in digital imagery. This will make you save huge amounts of time.

The method describes solving the cube in a layer-by-layer fashion. Most of the time, what slows you down is your inspection and your thinking.

Fridrich later stated that “I ended up jeszica the exact middle with a baaad time The formulas can seem a bit long but they are quite easy to learn.

I would recommend you to start with the formulas that orient 3 cornersbecause they are easy and you know them already.

For the edges orientation, you should already know all the cases. I found all these cases intuitively, just with practice. The learning can seem long and methof, but do not give up. This is probably the hardest part of the Fridrich method.
