Hello everyone who is reading and willing to answer my question. I have a very rare case on my cube (mirror) that i have no idea how to do. This is what it kind of looks like:
O = placed correctly
Q=not placed correctly
*view from last layer
O - O - O
Q - O - Q
O - O - O

If you could just visualise it. I need to swap the 2 Qs without breaking the bottom. Ty if you answer.

In theory this is not possible. It is very possible that you didn't actually buy a real mirror cube, but instead an inequal cube in which this is possible as there are identical pieces

Is it possible they're placed correctly but flipped...? That is a possible state...
He doesn't state anything about orientation. It's an Opposite swap on the top layer so he most probably switched two identical pieces in the F2L

Well i said that the O - O - O Is a view of the last layer. So your basically looking from the top. The rest is solved.
Q - O - Q
O - O - O

Wait so inequal cubes are cubes and are there turtorials for it or by inequal you mean its broken.

I know exactly how you meant it, read my message

No. On a real Mirror cube every piece is unique. On a inequal cube there are identical/identical looking pieces.

So should I go look for tutorials on how to solve a identical cube?
