# Thread: Keyhole Method/Working Corner method

1. For the keyhole method I understand this much.

1) Cross on bottom
2) get three corners

and the rest I don&#39;t fully understand

(this is the intermediate keyhole method)

Do you get the under the missing corner edge by R U&#39; R and then get the other three edges normally, or is there a special way to get the other edges. I don&#39;t really understand how this increases your time to do the F2L that quick.

2. Here is how it works. Do Uw(that means move The up layer AND the middle layer otherwise know as the E slice or d slice) until you have a part where there is no edge there(not the edge above the working corner, another edge.) For example if you didn&#39;t solve the Orange-Blue-Yellow corner then forget about solving the yellow-blue edge. Do Uw till you have another edge to solve, like say the orange white edge is missing. Make sure you have positioned the orange-white edge on the U layer . Now do U until the orange side is touching the white centerpiece or the white side of the orange-white edge is touching the orange center piece. Now you should be able to solve the edge intuitively using no more than 4 moves.

Here is a reall quick example. Do R U R&#39; on your cube(white on front, blue on top). Now rotate your cube so that there is anothe color on F but Blue still on top. Do R U R&#39; again. Pretend this is where the working corner is and do Uw&#39; so the gap where the red and white corner should be is above the working corner. Now I position the edge with U&#39;. Now I place it with R U&#39; R&#39; and do Uw to put the edge ove the correct place. Pretend the corner under which the edge you just placed is already solved. Now here is how you solve the corner and edge that you have not placed yet. If you&#39;ve followed my instructions then the proper corner should be directly above the correct position. So I do F&#39; U&#39; F to place the corner. Now I place the edge that belongs above that corner the regular way.

This is the beginner way, the advanced version requires 5 more algs for F2L and the placement of all 4 edges this way. The 5 algs are to place the working corner.

I hope this helps.

3. It isn&#39;t too hard, I found it out on my own in about 15 minutes. All you need is R U R&#39; and F&#39; U&#39; F, as said before.

4. HOLY&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;& #33;&#33;&#33;

I JUST GOT IT&#33; YAY&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

5. LOL, good job man.

6. Thats a right mission, i have no clue wit hthat method.

you aint the only one, half of the advanced methods i dont understand, mostly b/c of the notations but some are just ot many alg&#39;s.

8. I made a video and finaly found the time to put it up on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQ-qIyScA5o

9. Nice video&#33; I like your accent ;)

10. Thanks&#33; I didn&#39;t have a storyboard for this, I just explained things as I did them. Sometimes I say stupid things like "This one is already wrong".

Some more videos will be coming soon. One for "5x5x5 edge-pairing 2 edges at a time (beginner)" which is basically the method I am trying to tell everyone about (only for beginners I use an extreme amount of setup-moves to make it easier). Also I will post videos about 5x5x5 centers, but they are beginners only.
