# Rubik’s Cube Cheat Sheets

Should have done this a long time ago… here are the algorithms I use to solve the various rubik’s cubes.

## 2×2

Note that I’m terrible at the 2×2. It’s my worst cube and I HATE solving it. Here are two algorithms I use:

**R U R’ U R U2 R’**

**R’ U R’ D2 R U’ R’ D2 R2 B’**

## 3×3

**(bottom to get edge like +) F R U R’ U’ F’ L**

**(bottom to get edge properly positioned) R U2 R’ U R U’ R’ U’**

**(bottom to get corners properly positioned) L’ U R U’ L U R’ U**

**(bottom to get corners properly positioned) R U2 R’ U’ R U’ R’ L’ U2 L U L’ U L**

## Pyramid

**(flipped edges) L R’ L’ R U’ R U R’**

**(other solve) R’ L R L’**

## 4×4

**(2 unsolved edges ====) Dr R F’ U R’ F Dl**

**(parody) Rw1 U2 Lw F2 Lw1 F2 Rw2 U2 R U2 Rw’ U2 F2 Rw2 F2**

**(parody corners) Rw2 U2 Rw2 UU2 Rw2 UU2**

## 5×5 (and other odds)

I solve this one differently than what tutorials would tell you. The way I solve it only leaves me with one possible parody; the flipped edges one.

**(flipped edges |||) LL’ U2 LL’ U2 F2 LL’ F2 RR U2 RR’ U2 LL2**

## Mega Minx

**(to get the star edges; 1 flipped at 6 o’clock & 1 right at 11 o’clock) F R U R’ U’ F’**

**(to get star corner pieces; 6 o’clock & 8 o’clock will stay) R U R’ U R U2′ R’**

**(corners; 5 o’clock & 7 o’clock will stay) U 2 U2′ L’ U2 R’ U2′ L U**

**(corners pieces; piece on right will change; keep repeating until solved) R’ D’ R D**
