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.

As a result, many who learned from her website began to call this method the "Fridrich Method," which explains the common use of the term today. Several high-profile cubers have long disputed this terminology; Ron van Bruchem , famously, has publicly written that he will never call CFOP the "Fridrich Method. The term "CFOP" has since seen increasing usage compared to back then, also in part motivated by efforts to standardize terminology in method classification, and is now seen, commonly, as "Fridrich Method.
In particular, it combines some steps of the said method into one by using many more algorithms. Here, we outline pure CFOP without any additional trick. Also, the cube is commonly solved with the white side on top for the cross, yellow on the bottom for the cross, and opposite for the other steps. However, it is NOT required. Cross Make a cross on one side by solving all edges of a given face.
A Make sure to align the edges with the second-layer centers. It is recommended that you solve the cross on the bottom, left, right or back face and that you become familiar doing the cross with all colors; not just one. Each slot is filled by inserting a corner and its corresponding edge simultaneously. Most of the 41 cases have reasonable intuitive solutions. The completion of this step leaves one with just the last layer, typically placed on top.
Those new to OLL break up the step into two. This greatly reduces the number of cases; 2-look OLL has 9 cases. However, note that this is a few seconds slower PLL Permutation of the Last Layer Finally, you finish the cube by permuting the top layer of the cube. Those new to PLL break up the step into two. This greatly reduces the number of cases; 2-look PLL has 6 cases. Although the cross and F2L are solved intuitively, they are more straightforward than the blockbuilding with Roux or the edge orientation and blockbuilding with ZZ.
Is by far the most researched method - As CFOP is the most widely used method and has been for many years, there has been far more research done on CFOP than any other method, which means more resources, a larger variety of algorithms to choose from, and more community members to assist and give advice. Statistically the fastest speedsolving method - Statistically speaking, CFOP has proven to currently be the fastest method, despite the move count.
As of June 1, , the top four speedsolvers in 3x3 average use the method, as well as the top fifteen speedsolvers in 3x3 single. Reliance on Inspection - CFOP relies on the use of inspection time, in order for the cross and the first pair, depending on how advanced the user is to be solved quickly.
Difficulty of Cross - Planning the cross during inspection can take a while to master. See also.
