Hey guys I am KSHITIJ ( pronounced - Shee-ti-z) from new Delhi ,India. . I am into filmmaking by proffession , who cares what i do and where i live LOL. The point is that i started cubing 2 weeks back with beginner's method and i could solve it in 1 min and 10 sec mark. I started CFOP 2 days back learned F2L intuetively and rest beginners method its taking 2 mins to solve now. i dont know where to start what to learn OLL, PLL, 4LLL there is so much stuff in internet but not organised . Want to be sub 20 , PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Learn 4 look last layer which is 2 look OLL plus 2 look PLL, then start learning 1 look PLL which is 21 algorithms. Then learn advanced F2L techniques once you're around sub-30 and full OLL at around 20 seconds.

Firstly you should get a good speedcube. It doesn't have to be the best, but it has to be decent enough.

Also, if you don't know the standard move notation, learn it here.

Learn 4 Look Last Layer, which is solving the last layer in 4 steps. It is split into 2 parts: 2-Look OLL and 2-Look PLL.

You can alternatively get algorithms from here.

You should also start learning F2L, and J Perm has good tutorials on it. F2L can slow you down at first, but as you practice more you will get faster. J Perm is a good cubing channel with great tutorials, so also consider visiting his channel to get better.

Now you should learn full PLL, which is 21 algorithms and it turns 2-Look PLL into a one step process.

It's time to learn advanced F2L techniques and how to look ahead, and J Perm had good videos on those.

With all of this, you can average sub-20 seconds.

They already said the right thing about OLL and PLL, but what will considerably lower your time is F2L
So... my advise is that you have to practice F2L exhaustively!!!

Welcome, I recommend that you practice F2L alot and definitely learn 4LLL but make sure you have a good speedcube first.

Don't use Rubik's brand!!!
You can probably convert any website but the biggest one I think is thcubicle.us and you could buy a yuxin little magic and this should improve your times if you are using a bad cube.

SpeedCubeShop is usually more popular, and people think it's better

thankyou bro, but i am finding F2L very tough and slow, many cube rotations and very slow.
