Rubik’s Cube Final Layer Solution

By Duy Nam Ton

Upper Cross Formation:

Situation 1a: Situation 1b:

If Situation 1a, use:


Right ↑, Top ←, Back ←, Top →, Back →, Right ↓ (6)

If Situation 1b: Use the move above twice. (12)

-OR-

For Situation 1b:

Use:
Right ↑, Back ←, Top ←, Back →, Top →, Right ↓ (6)

If Situation 1a: Use the move above twice. (12)


Edge Switcher:

To solve the following:

Use:
Bottom ←, Left ↓, Bottom ←, Left ↑, Bottom ←←, Front ←, Bottom ←, Front ↑, Bottom →
Right ↑, Front ←, Right ↓ (13)

Three-Corner Shuffle (Clockwise):

To do the following:

Use:
Right ↓, Top ←, Left ↓, Top →, Right ↑, Top ←, Left ↑, Top → (9), Repeat if necessary.

-OR-

Three-Corner Shuffle (Counter-Clockwise):

To do the following:

Use:
Top ←, Left ↓, Top →, Right ↓, Top ←, Left ↓, Top →, Right ↑ (9), Repeat if necessary.
Last Corner Rotation:

To solve the following by rotating the colors of the indicated (yellow) corner:

1. Select a corner, and then position it as indicated above (in yellow).


2. Make sure the corner two-cubes behind the selected corner (dark gray) is correct.
3. Use:

Right ↓, Bottom ←, Right ↑, Bottom → (4), Repeat until the indicated corner is rotated
correctly. May take up to four repeats.

When the selected corner is rotated correctly, two situations can arise:

I.

If the selected corner is solved correctly, but the two cubes below it is disoriented, as pictured
above. Rotate top layer clockwise (Top →), then do step 3 of “Last Corner Rotation”.

-OR IF-

II.

Where the selected corner is solved and everything else is correct, then rotate the whole cube
counter-clock wise, then do step 3 of “Last Corner Rotation”.
