This is our last step!

At this point your Rubik's cube should be solved except at most four wrong cubie sides on the bottom layer. Scroll down to see the Java applets showing two Rubik's cube configurations. Chances are that your Rubik's cube looks like one of them.

If your Rubik's cube does not look like this, please go back to the previous step.

Goal

Our goal is to solve the entire Rubik's cube. When you are done the Rubik's cube should look like the following:



Let's do it!

We move edges to their matching sides on the last layer. You only need to remember the following two algorithms. As you can see, the first algorithm swaps the 3 edge cubies clockwise, and the second one swaps them counter-clockwise.

L2 U B F' L2 B' F U L2L2 U' B F' L2 B' F U' L2



There are actually 4 possible configurations, but for each configuration you need to use only these two algorithms, with two tries at most.

Congratulations!

You just solved the incredibly challenging game of the Rubik's cube Give yourself a big pat on the back will ya? I have covered everything in such detail that any layperson can solve the Rubik's cube. But if you are still confused, let me know!

Happy solving a Rubik's cube
