    My Complete Guide For OLL & PLL (Free To Download)

    I used Microsoft Excel 2003. I don't know if there are official names for the OLL cases, but I've created some fun and useful ones which are helpful for team blindfold solving! Pictures are from Bob Burton's OLL page and Badmephisto's PLL page. If you find any errors, have any suggestions, or are confused about notation just reply.

    Update dates are posted below

    UPDATE:
    Date: Can't remember lol

    Just added the PLL page. Two look cases are highlighted in blue. You will need to select the "sheet two" tab at the bottom of the screen. The print settings are also set. Just click print and it will print the guide perfectly fine. Make sure to use the scroll bar near the bottom of the screen. If you need to edit, add, or make changes to algorithms to suite your preferences, feel free to do so. The red algorithms are for speed.

    Date: 1/5/09
    Fixed Set up algorithm for OLL case # 11

    Date: 1/6/09
    Most of these are very minor errors like missing apostraphies
    -Font for OLL cases 1 and 2 have been corrected
    -Alternate solution for case # 3 has been corrected
    -Converted OLL case # 6 for speed [old algorithm is still listed]
    -New Faster Solution for OLL case # 9 [Not that much faster and old algorithm is still listed]
    -Second alternate solution for OLL case # 10 has been corrected
    -OLL case # 12 has been corrected
    -Setup algorithm for case # 28 has been corrected
    -OLL case # 29 has been converted for speed [Changed " R' (R' " to " R2 "]
    -Set up algorithm for case # 33 has been corrected
    -Set up algorithm for case # 36 has been corrected
    -OLL case # 39 has been converted for speed [Changed " R') (R' " to " R2 "]
    -Set up algorithm for case # 48 has been corrected
    -OLL case # 49 has been converted for speed [Changed " l L' " to " M "]
    -Speedy Algorithm added to case # 56 [old algorithm is still listed]
    -PLL case # 2 has been corrected
    -Notes on PLL page are now green
    All cases including alternate and set up algorithms have been checked and are correct

    Date: 1/11/09
    -New name for OLL case # 13
    -New name for OLL case # 14
    -OLL case # 14: switched recommended algorithm with alternate algorithm, turned diagram, and updated set up
    -Turned diagram, new algorithm added, and updated set up for OLL case # 37 [Right Hand Friendly]
    -Turned diagram, new algorithm added, and updated set up for OLL case # 33 [Right Hand Friendly]
    -Turned diagram, new algorithm added, and updated set up for OLL case # 49 [Right Hand Friendly]
    All new changes have been checked and are correct

    Date: 12/22/09
    -Corrected column titles for OLL page 2
    -Added new solution, turned diagram, switched recommended algorithm, and updated set up for OLL case # 45
    -Added new solution, turned diagram, switched recommended algorithm, and updated set up for OLL case # 5 (Recommend learning one of the first two solutions and the third)
    -Turned diagram, switched recommended algorithm, and updated set up for OLL case # 6
    -Changed set up for OLL case # 8 (Old Set Up Still Works)
    -Changed set up for OLL case # 10 (Old Set Up Still Works)
    -Changed set up for OLL case # 40 (Old Set Up Still Works)
    -Alternate algorithm for OLL case # 40 {(R U R' U' R') (R' F R F') (R U2 R')} did not work and was replaced
    -Simplified set up for OLL case # 41 (Old Set Up Still Works)
    -Changed set up for OLL case # 46 (Old Set Up Still Works)
    Set up algorithms have been corrected so that if the recommended solution is used, a permutation will not follow.

    Final Version
    I should've posted this months ago. But this is MY final version of this guide.
    Graphic interface could be improved but this is Excel and I'm content with it. Whats important for me is that the information is organized, easy to read and understand, and presented cleanly. If you want to make some cosmetic changes, by all means do so. This guide was designed to be personalized by the cuber. You have the freedom to change anything in this guide. This is what makes this guide very appealing especially to new cubers who are learning the last layer of the Fridrich method. This file is a compilation of MY notes and efficient algorithms I've come across and discovered on my own for about a year while studying OLL and PLL. I hope my guide helps you develop your own unique style of cubing or atleast your own techniqes or tricks for solving the last layer.

    That is a commendable product, assuming the algs are accurate. :)
    If you want it to even easier to use, I suggest trying to make a well-formatted, compact PDF.

  4. Thanks for this complet guide:)
    With this I am going to learn all the OLL's :)
    Thanks again!

    its not massively related, but i think i have a good other alg for case 50 (and 53, if you dont mind mirrors)

    - (y) (RUR'U) (RU'R'U) (RU'R'U') (R'FRF')

    its always nice to know another alg for a different angle (even if it is only a U' to get the other alg :p)

    This is really great, thanks to the OP. I've been looking for something like this for a while that gives you the alg to solve and also the alg to perform on a solved cube.

    I'll print this when I get home. Thanks a lot.

    I'm thinking about making a PLLs page. Let me know if you guys think I should.

    Yeah, I think you should make a PLL page.

    And I wasn't even sure that the feature would exist when I looked, this forum's so logical. :rolleyes:
    If you're talking about PM, see the control panel.

    Well what did you expect? New member with very first post being a contribution and a good one having put some effort into it, rather than annoying the hell out of us... we don't exactly see that very often. In other words: you certainly earned it. Some nice names for the OLLs, btw.

    Thanks. I didn't know if there where official names for them. I made up names which would help me remember the algorithms. Like "Sune-T" is simply Sune case followed by "Short T".

    Although many cases are different from I use/am learning, I commend you for creating it.

    How long did it take you to make this?
