Fridrich method step 1 : Solving the cross Tips and tricks This step 1 is the exact same of the step 1 of the beginners method. But now, the cross needs to be solved fast. Every cross can be solved in under 10 moves.
The whole cross solving should be planned during the 15 seconds of inspection, before starting the resolution. Once you are at that level, you should be able to solve every cross in under 1. To improve on the cross, my advice is to solve it blindfolded.
During pre-inspection, take more than 15 seconds. At first you will only be capable of planning 2 edges, then 3 and then the whole cross. Once you can do any cross blindfolded, you will be able to focus on the first pair while solving the cross. This will make you save huge amounts of time. I would also advice you to solve the cross on the bottom layer from the beginning. So flip the whole cube and start practicing with the cross on the bottom.
It helps you to focus on unsolved faces, instead of focusing on the white face. It also avoids to flip the cube when the cross is finished, which will save time too.
The aim is to perform the moves continuously and to have a good transition between each step. Every second you do not rotate any face can be saved. It is possible that solving the cross on the bottom wastes time in the beginning but it will quickly make you improve.
If it is too difficult for you, maybe you can try it later on Although the cases can be very different, some similar pattern often happen. I am going to give you a few techniques to solve these cases. I found all these cases intuitively, just with practice. Memorizing them will save you time. When the cross is prepared a half turn to the solved position, it is particularly easy because all you need is to focus on opposite colors. Once finished, a D2 move aligns the cross.
While doing the last D move, you can start inspecting for the next step of the resolution. These techniques are very helpful. It is now time to start practicing! Do not under-estimate the progress you can make by just looking at the cube and trying to figure out the cross.
Sometimes you can even take a minute to think on how to solve the cross. Simulating moves mentally will help you for the next solves and you will become more and more familiar with efficient cross solving. There is no general rule on the best way to solve the cross though. Everyone has his own technique and his way of solving the cross. It is up to you to find your own style and solution. A new speedcuber just appears!
More precisely, every time you solve a corner, just associate the corresponding edge and solve both at the same time. This corner and edge are called a pair. Sometimes, it is easier to first build the pair and then insert it. Some other times, we build the pair and insert it at the same time. There are many websites presenting solving formulas for the first two layers. According to me, it is much more interesting to find all the cases by yourself.
It is not complicated and you will remember them forever. To do this, I will still help you by showing you a few basic cases. From these 3 cases, you should be able to deduce the entire solve. They will be presented with an example. Solving the F2L The basic idea of the first 2 layers is to pair the edge and the corner.
And this needs to be done while inserting them at the correct place. On the following example, we can see that a simple rotation of the right face will pair the red white bleu corner and the red blue edge.
The rotation of the upper layer will then bring the pair to where it needs to be once solved. Here are the two main ways for inserting a pair, when the white of the corner is not located on top. The edge and the corner have the same color on top : Length.

Orientation of the Last Layer complete The method consists of four steps: The Cross - This first stage involves solving the four edge pieces in one outer layer of the puzzle, centering around a commonly coloured centre piece. Many speedcubers usually solve the cross on the bottom side to avoid cube rotations, which slow down solve times. There are 42 standard cases for each corner-edge pair including the case where it is already solved. It can also be done intuitively.
First step: form a white cross
But be patient! Here we solve the first two layers at the same time, by making corner-edge pairs and then inserting the pairs into the empty slots. Just like with the cross, locate the two pieces of the pair before trying to pair them up. Then you can track them as you make moves.
