There are 3 types of pieces in the puzzle: Centers, Corners and Edges.
Centers will always stay in the same place in relation to eachother
Each face of the Rubik's cube is notated with it's first letter:
Right, Left, Up, Down, Front, Back
Noting the face, means a 90 degrees clockwise rotation.
if the face is followed by a ' like in R', it means 90 degrees counter-clockwise rotation.
if the face is followed by a 2 like in R2, it means 180 degrees counter-clockwise rotation.
if the face is not in a capital letter like in f, it means rotation of two layers.
The goal of this stage is to form a white cross on the bottom of the puzzle, where each edge on the bottom layer is consistent with both faces it's connected to
This stage is intuitive up to the highest levels and can be performed intuitively
As a beginner, bring an edge piece to the top layer where you will face two of the followin scenarios
The goal of this stage is to locate and insert the corner pieces of the bottom layer
if the corner piece is on the top layer, there are 3 options
If the corner piece is in the bottom layer, just replace it with another corner piece
The goal of this stage is to locate and insert the edge pieces of the middle layer
if the edge piece is on the U layer, there are 2 options
If the edge piece is in the middle layer, just replace it with another edge piece
The goal of this stage is to orient all of the top layer pieces that the yellow color will face up
First, orient the edges
Then, orient the corners.
There are 7 cases, all of which can be solved with one or two algorithms named Sune and Anti-Sune
The goal of this stage is to locate and permute the pieces of the last layer
First, we permute the corner pieces. there are three options:
Second, we permute the edge pieces. use this algorithms to permute 3 of the edges clockwise
